Recommended by: CPT John Burnett
This is real mountains with trees, a little water stream, animals and you can do easy or hard camping. They have a place for horses to camp too. You see hawks along the drive and you can see a helicopter place.
Your horse can camp with you & miles of horse trails!
Neat camping, hiking, rock climbing and horseback riding area - A great visual experience as the cliffs seem to rise up in front of you as you drive up. There are about a thousand rock climbing routes! (See links below).
As you arrive at the lower campground there is horse corral, trailer parking and turn around, equine trailhead and primitive camping area. No water at horse area but water spouts are at the improved camping areas are 1 mile up the road (no horses there!). If you have horses you will need to bring water and/or water containers.
Apache Chief Cochise was secretly buried somewhere here, rock climbers can be seen here sometimes (bolted routes). Camping, hiking and picnicking and here are many petroglyphs in the area.
