This is a beautiful park, with great trails to hike. The entrance fee is very inexpensive, and there are trails that range in difficulty. The kids loved the hiking, and we spent several hours exploring. This is a great full or half day activity.
I used to really love this park, the dry camping loop is the best, but the last three years it’s been full all the time, and management seems to be very very uncaring, we phoned one hour before we arrived to make sure there was...More
Stopped here while touring the Apache Trail and found it to be informative, educational and extremely scenic. They provide walking trails through the Sonoran Desert with identifying markings on most of the flora including the many varieties of cacti. No jackalopes or rattlers but a...More

I'm not sure what photos you are looking at, but I went to a web site called campsite photos...and, well ...they are photos...and are pretty accurate. If you are tent camping be sure to bring a rake or some way to clear the pebbles...or better yet, bring a camping cot/sleeping pad. It is a very clean park and the RV sites are quite nice. I went with the family camping group last December and it was toasty in the day and chilly at night. Have FUN ;-)

In the park, roads are paved. Driving past the park there are side roads and hiking trails that are not paved. The Apache Trail continues on to canyon lake, apache lake and to Roosevelt lake too. The pavement ends along the way, but the road is not bad for vehicles under 30 ft. Lovely drive. Wonderful area.
