Upper Scorpion Campground are the nearest campgrounds to the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument.
The Gila River runs nearby the campgrounds and is home to an abundance of wildlife. This is a good campground for tent and car camping. This campground is not conducive to RV camping.
This campsite is perfect. There’s about 6-8 spots at this particular site. It’s first come first serve so, get there early because it fills up fast. There are toilets in the parking lot and they are constantly stocked with toilet paper. Each campsite has a fire pit in the middle and some have picnic tables. Most of the sites are close to the parking lot so you don’t have haul your stuff very far. Also, it’s the site closest to the Cliff Dwellings Monument (about 1/4 mile away). We’ve camped here twice and every time it is perfect. Nights in the spring do get a bit chilly so bring warm clothes.
