Small tentsites

Great pass through campground. They have Archery, a pool, and a store. There are restaurants near the campground. The bathrooms were just ok.

Relaxation in the trees

Cute town and peaceful campground. Clean bathrooms and showers. Pool, game room, shuffle board, basketball court and off leash dog park. Lots of trees in the sites great for hammocking (in the tent sites). I would definitely stay here again.

Spacious campsites

This place was pretty we even saw deer crossing near our site at sundown. There is water sports, hiking trails, biking trails. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were hot and the water pressure was amazing. They have a dish cleaning area also next to the bathroom. Water spigots next to all the camp spots and they sell firewood. Definitely a great place to camp they have kids activities also.

Peaceful campground

Beautiful campground without a river running through. Self check in and check out never even talked to anyone. It felt like just camping in the woods alone. I would definitely stay here again.

Tent sites are horrible

The tent sites were right on top of each other and there was nowhere to park. You had to climb a steep hill to get to them with your car and again to the actual spot. The people were awesome, the facilities were clean and the pool was refreshing. They have WiFi that works great, a store with ice, snacks, and food.

Good place to stay

I’ll start with the negatives: you can hear traffic all night because it is located in an industrial area and the showers are not hot. It is close to the Sequoia NP which is warm in the summer so the pool at this campground was refreshing.

Great camping

I’ve camped here several times. The camp hosts are friendly helpful and knowledgeable. I prefer to go all the way to the very bottom of the campground. There is a lot of open area for my boys to run around and build a fort while I read a book next to the stream. Also it doesn’t seem to fill up as fast as the top sites. Bathrooms are clean, bear boxes are provided, and If you want a break from camp food you can jet up to summerhaven it’s not that far and grab lunch. There isn’t any grocery stores or gas stations on Mt. Lemmon so fill up before venturing up the mountain. If you are a hiker there are many trails to choose from not to far from your camp (read up on hiking in high elevations though before you venture out). Mt. Lemmon is also dog friendly and so is this campground just make sure to pick up after your pooch. The drive up Mt. Lemmon highway is 35 MPH the cops hiding around the corners writing tickets would be glad to remind you or you can take my word for it. This road is also very popular for cyclists so make sure you keep your eyes on the road, they come out of nowhere. The views are spectacular even if you are just coming for the day. You go from desert to full forest in the matter of 45min it is nothing I’ve ever seen before. This is a must see if visiting Tucson, AZ.
