Great Fall Getaway

We wanted one last tent camping trip before it got to cold and chose a quick trip up to Camp Verde. (We’re from Phoenix) It was a short hour and a half drive up the 17. Clear Creek Campground is about a 10 min drive passed Camp Verde, so if you forget any supplies it’s a quick trip into town. The Campground itself is pretty wide open, which is not my cup of tea normally but we found a cute spot that is right next to the exit. It’s great! It’s totally hidden and separated from the rest of the camp. Bathrooms were clean, plenty of water pumps and the host is super on top of things. We had issues with some other rude campers ,so beware. I have a feeling it’s an amateur campground, so if it’s summer and you want peace and quiet, this is not the place. Our timing was great Tue-Thur, Oct 9th thru the 12th. The Creek is just across the dirt road. It’s so peaceful and beautiful! Has a nice little trail that runs next to the creek.

Forest Fire Season

Love Christopher Creek as always.. no fires allowed so it was pretty quiet which was nice. Bathrooms are decent and they have drinking water which makes things easier. Stay by the creek, it's the best spot!

Kehl Springs was great!

Peaceful and quiet campground. Bit of a trek up 300/Rim Road, but well worth it. Just ten minutes past the campground are great views over looking Mogollon Rim. Decent bathrooms, no water so stock up. No cell service at the campground but up at the Rim you'll get a tad of service. Over all great place if you kinda want to be off grid.

Great Little Spot

Love this spot. Normally don't need a reservation. Nice little hike by the creek that the dogs love. Campgrounds are set apart enough to have a tad of privacy.
