Beautiful Campground, Friendly Camp Host, and Free Range Horses!

Los Burros was a beautiful little spot, tucked away in the pines near Pinetop-Lakeside, AZ. There are at least two camping spots that include a fenced in area for your horses to stay. There is a trailhead right in the campground (Los Burros Trail) that is moderate/easy and perfect for an afternoon or morning hike. There was cattle in the fields just about 1/2 a mile up the trail, but they didn't seem to mind the hikers/mountain bikers. Free range horses were in the fields across from the campground when we stayed and they paid us a visit during breakfast - they seemed to be well acquainted with people and were not scared to come right up to our truck and our tent, but they were easily scared away by tossing a few small rocks around where they were. Each campsite is complete with a fire ring with a grill cover. Overnight the site was very quiet, which was surprising because the campground was full - it seemed like most people staying here were planning on staying more than 2 or 3 nights and were pro-campers.

Great Camping and Hiking spot to escape some of the Arizona heat!

We stayed one night at Bog Springs Campground. Each camping spot is very well shaded, and complete with grills and picnic tables. Bathrooms are also common to the camp ground. Driving in you get a beautiful view of Mount Wrightson. It can get pretty crowded during peak times (holiday weekends and summertime), but we had no problem finding a campsite when we visited (late January). Several of the campsites have more than one spot for a tent - perfect for medium sized groups, and there are plenty of surrounding trees - perfect for hammocks! There are several trailheads within walking distance of the campground (including the Bog Springs Trail).
