About: Located high in the Pinaleño Mountains in an open, grassy stand of aspen and fir, this campground was constructed to provide a more primitive camping experience than most forest campgrounds. Campsites include a parking area and a fire grill. A public corral is available for riding and pack stock.
Nearby there are plenty of foot and equestrian trails. The Grant Creek Trail starts at the campground edge and follows a scenic route down canyon to the site of old Fort Grant, once an important outpost in the days of warring between the Apaches and the U.S. Army. Today, the fort is an Arizona State Prison Facility. Also conveniently close by the campground is the Cunningham and Grant Hill Loop, a system of old logging roads and trails developed for mountain biking and hiking. Access to these trails is located across the Swift Trail (AZ 366) from the campground.
Fees: $10 (2011)
Directions: From Safford, drive south 8 miles on US 191 to AZ 366. Turn right (southwest) onto 366 and drive approximately 25.8 miles to the campground (between Grant Creek and Moonshine Creek). This route is usually accessible April 15th through November 14th, weather permitting.
