Nice area

We usually stay on FR 9350, but it was full. We drove towards Bear Canyon and found 84. We found a couple of spots still open. It’s really pretty. lots of trees. We didn’t have any cell signal. Lots of beautiful wildlife. No vault toilets, no water, no trash, no hookups. We would definitely go back

Nice!

This was the first place I ever camped at. We were in a tent back then. We have stayed there about 3 times since. It’s very pretty and only 1.5 hours from Phoenix. All spots have tables and a fire ring. They have water spigots throughout the park and vault toilets which are clean. It’s only a 5 min drive to downtown Prescott, so you have stores, restaurants, bars, & shopping. We had nice camp hosts and not so nice ones. We’ll be back!

Not much

We stayed here in March 2017. It was a good price for hookups, plus your only feet away from the water. The spot we stayed at had Ramada’s. The sites were very close together. Weather was nice, but super windy. Ranger store on site with gas. Ranger was very nice. Bathrooms were clean wIth nice showers and flush toilets. Fishing was pretty bad, not one bite in 3 days. Scenery was mostly desert, which I’m not a big fan of. We went with some friends who got a spot right next to us. It wasn’t busy at all, we reserved spots online but it wasn’t necessary. We live in Phoenix, so it’s about 4 hours away. Not worth the drive, but we were dying to go camping and our forest spots weren’t open for the season yet. Most likely won’t be back.

Decent winter camping

This is our go-to spot in the winter. 2 hours from Phoenix. This is all ugly desert landscape, but the lake is nice and the night sky is AMAZING! We pay $22 per night for water and electric. Spots are pretty close to each other. They have a ranger store that sells pretty much everything. The bathrooms are always clean with flush toilets and showers. The weather is close to perfect in the winter, gets pretty cold at night. I wouldn’t recommend going in the summer as the temps reach well over 100. We have fished there, but have never caught anything. The fishermen on boats bring in a ton of fish, so if you have a boat then you’ll have better luck. It’s always very windy at night, so remember to put your awnings up! We made that mistake our first time there. I’m sure we’ll go back next winter since it’s close to Phoenix and reasonably priced. We get pretty good cell service too. There are a ton of spots and are reservable online. They also have small cabins you can rent.

First to Review
Awesome!!!

As far as AZ camping goes, it doesn’t get any better than Greer! In my opinion, it’s the most beautiful lil town in AZ. We stayed here over 4th of July weekend. The days were slightly warm, but you have plenty of shade under all the pine trees. It gets into the 40s-50s at night. We use a generator, but quiet time is 10 pm, so bring warm clothes and blankets. There is a few lakes to choose from that are stocked with trout year round. There is one store that is just a few minutes drive, it’s small and a lil pricey, but has what you need. The camp host sells firewood and ice. There is flush toilets and showers free to use, as well as vault toilets sInce they lock the bathrooms at night. I can’t even explain how gorgeous this place is, anywhere in Greer is a good spot. I think we paid $20 per night. We can’t wait to go back!

Very pretty

We camped at pine grove in July 2016. The weather was perfect! Very clean campgrounds with flush toilets, garbage, fire rings, and tables. They have showers, but you pay for that (not sure how much). We felt very safe there. It was packed with campers and not a lot of space between the sites. The camp hosts were very nice and made their rounds many times per day. They sold fire wood and ice. There were a few lakes nearby, but they were all dry at that time. All sites were under tall pines. Everyone seemed to obey the 10 pm quiet time. We did see a baby bear on top of the camp hosts 5th wheel when we got there, so remember this is bear country! We will definitely return

Desert Camping

We came here for our wedding anniversary in November since it wouldn’t be too cold. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, but not much else to say. The sites were pretty small, but we have a pop up so not bad. It was very busy that weekend. It was only 5 minutes from Superior, which was nice for gas, food, water, etc. There was a few vault toilets throuout the grounds. Each site had a fire ring and tables. It was clean for the most part, but there was some sketchy people there and a couple sites reported theft. There was recently some vandalism as well. It’s only about an hour from Phoenix, but we probably won’t go back

Gorgeous!!

We have been camping here for years. Beautiful pine trees and sites right on the Mogollon Rim. 10 min drive to woods canyon lake which is stunningly beautiful. This is one of many dispersed FR near Woods canyon lake. 2 hours from the scorching heat of Phoenix, we enjoy the beautiful shady weather. We get good cell service also which is always a plus when you have kids at home. You can get water for free by the lake and a lake store for anything you need. Not sure how much the dump station and trash is since we’ve never used it. You can rent boats & kayaks at the lake also. The trout fishing is great! We have never left empty handed. There is a ton of space between the camp sites so you have privacy. The roads are dirt and some washboard areas, but we have driven in a small car packed with camping gear and a 4x4 truck towing a camper and never had a problem. There is one vault toilet near the entrance of FR 9350. I believe all sites have a fire ring, at least all the ones we have stayed at. You won’t be disappointed!
