At 9,000 feet, this is one of the highest campgrounds in Arizona. With that in mind, you might suspect that it's cool up here. Well you would be right, deliciously cool--when it's hot everywhere else.

  • Trailers and motorhomes up to 16 foot
  • No hookups
  • Pets must be restrained or on a leash
  • Lodge and restaurant at nearby Hannagan Meadow

The KP Trailhead, directly adjacent to the campground, provides hiking and backpacking opportunites into the Blue Range Primitive Area via the KP Trail (# 70) with connections to many other trails within the area.
