Top 3 Favorite Campgrounds

Overall what are your Top 3 favorite campgrounds in Arizona and why?

We liked our stay at Lost Dutchman State Park. Great and easy access to hikes in the Superstition Mountains. Sites were large and spaced a decent amount apart.


Living in AZ, this one is a little tough because the season really determines where we go.
Oak Creek area - This is a great area to visit and there are a few awesome Forest Service Campgrounds between Sedona and the 40.
Lake Pleasant Park, Maricopa County - The county side of Lake Pleasant has great sites for RVs as well as dry shoreline camping. Really has something for everyone. We find the summer a little unbearable though.
Fools Hollow Lake Campground - Impeccably maintained, this campground near Show Low, AZ is a great escape from the summer heat with good fishing and water recreation.

All great! We have been to every place but Oak Creek for camping.

Lake Havasu State Park is nice, but incredibly hot through early October. I will say that if you can stand the heat, mid September is quiet on the lake.
