Clints Well Campground is located near a junction of two major roads which provide access to northern Arizona's National Forest lands. As such it is close to several features of recreational interest. A short drive from the campground is the scenic Mogollon Rim, the two thousand foot drop-off that marks the southern limit of the Colorado Plateau. Also within easy drivingdistance are a number of forest lakes known for their excellent fishing. A small community which is springing up at the crossroads provides easy access to services such as a gas station/country store and a restaurant.
Campsites at Clints Well are tucked away in a stand of tall, old growth ponderosas a short distance off the highway. Since access is so convenient, the area is open year-round although after winter storms the campground and surrounding roads may become impassable and are occasionally closed.
