Automated Fee Machine Campsite, Location and Fee Information

Tonto National Forest has indefinitely closed developed recreation sites.

As we work through an unpredictable and rapidly changing situation, health and safety is our number one priority. We are committed to continuing to support our communities and fulfill our mission as we all work together to minimize the impacts and spread of COVID-19. These actions have been taken based on the best available medical advice for cleaning per CDC guidelines and to promote social distancing. To ensure safe social distancing, you will receive a full refund for user fees paid.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.


The Tonto National Forest has Automated Fee Machines for your convenience at designated recreation sites. The following campgrounds require camping passes to be bought at these fee machines. Interagency Senior or Access Pass holders receive 50% discount (persons over 62 or have a permanent disability) for single camp units only. The Tonto Daily Pass, Discovery Passes, and Interagency Annual Passes are no longer accepted as a “camping” pass for these sites. Campsite fees must be purchased/paid at the designated fee machines.
