On the edge of the Valley of the Sun (phoenix metro area and environs) is a great natural and undeveloped park-- a road and relatively small and very basic camp areas. Pure nature, minimal enhancements As a result be aware and plan ahead if staying

A pretty cool place for having a party! Ramadas are available. Lots of open space for kids to run around. There are hiking trails, but be sure to bring lots of water and pay attention to where you're going. Entrance fee is $6 per car.
