My favorite campground is about 7 miles north of Slide Rock State Park and across Oak Creek. A little place called Cave Springs. Cave Springs is a great, small campground with coin operated showers, and potable water as well as restroom facilities. Located right on Oak Creek, you can fish or wade with your dog in the cool water, hike a trail or just sit and relax. The area is lush with vegetation and trees and all sites have fire pits, grills and running water. You can purchase ice, firewood, fishing licenses and small supplies from the camp store and there is a camp host who lives on the property.
There is a 7-day stay limit and reservations are required. The fee is $18 a day, and you can reserve online at:
Or you can call 928/282-1629. The above website will give you all the info you need to know. Warning: Reservations are hard to come by in the summer months. I suggest you reserve very early, otherwise you may get stuck with a lot that’s in a high traffic area, or away from everything. You can camp with either a camper, trailer or just a tent--the choice is yours. Campsites allow eight people per site, and only one car is allowed. They will allow parking at the front of the park for $3 a day for extra vehicles.
It’s peaceful, quiet, and tons of fun to camp here. And like I said, Slide Rock is right down the road. With over 40 sites to choose from, surely you can find something you like. I like the fact that there’s a host that lives on the property--keeps out the riff-raff and keeps people quiet at night.
