Reynolds Creek Group Campground

  

The Reynolds Creek Group Campground is a rustic and secluded, creek side camp located on the Pleasant Valley Ranger District in the Tonto National Forest. The primitive group camping area is nestled between towering ponderosa pine at an elevation of 5,250 feet and provides a great base camp for a wide range of recreational activities including, hiking, fishing, hunting, and nature photography.

Natural Features: The group site is located adjacent to Reynolds Creek which runs year round. Opportunities for wading, fishing, and hiking abound. Berry picking is a popular activity in the fall. A thick stand of ponderosa pine covers the group area, offering pleasant shade. A large meadow provides the perfect place for group activities and games.

Recreation: The site is located between the Salome and Sierra Ancha Wilderness Areas and adjacent to the From the Desert to the Tall Pines National Scenic Byway. Two trailheads are located within a quarter mile of the campground and provide access to the Wilderness Areas as well as a lookout tower.

Facilities: The site includes two large ramadas, eight picnic tables, group grill, large metal campfire rings, two vault toilets, and one corral.

Nearby Attractions: Workman Creek is located two miles to the south and has cascading waterfalls and plenty of opportunities for berry picking in the fall. Hikers and equestrians can explore the area's majestic scenery on meandering trails.
