Take Highway 89A for 7 miles southwest of Jerome, or 13 miles east of Prescott Valley, to Forest Road 104 (by the Summit Picnicn Area). Take Forest Road 104 for approximately 1.5 miles. Playground Group Campground is on the left side of the road.
RVs are welcome in Playground Group Campground, but the parking lot is relatively small which limits the number of RVs that can be present at one time. This site can hold up to 12 smaller RVs and trailers, but 40' RVs will have a hard time turning around, and fewer will fit at one time. Additionally, there is only one electric hook-up, so most trailers will be without electricity during their stay.
Recently refurbished, the central gathering area in this group site consists of a large fire ring and commercial grills surrounded by picnic tables. The toilet and a trash dumpster are located conveniently nearby.
