One of the many open spaces along the dirt road to the trail head. The trail head is day use only so this place is about 1/2 mile away. A little road noise from Hwy 70. Cows walking right up to the camper.
Very pretty sunset. Perfect place to camp and do the mountain in the morning

Update: my enjoyment of this area diminished by the day due to over crowding and road traffic. Moving out earlier than expected. Ok spot for a night or two while visiting the area or passing through.

Nice campsite. Not secluded, but convenient to both town and great hiking trails. Easy access in and out. Decent Verizon cell coverage as well. It was crowded in early March when I was here. It looked like there was a large equestrian group camped together, but I’m not sure if that’s normal for this time of year or not.

Beautiful spot right off the highway yet very little noise from it. Few police cruiser came racing up the trail for some reasons. Was nice to sleep with Coyotes howling during the night and cows just walking around. Had a great hike the next morning around picketpost mountain. No at&t cell reception inside the van and slight reception outside.

Great area with several spots. We were aiming for a campground an hour up the road and just couldn't make it. These sites are easy to get to even in the dark. We didn't explore too much when we came in because it was dark but we woke to beautiful views all around. This will be our go to spot when traveling through Phoenix.

Great spot under the mountain. Plenty of firewood around. Some cars coming and going to the trailhead but very quiet after that

a favorite easy sleep spot on the way in or out of Phoenix. the road is loudish so it's not for those looking for a peaceful wilderness experience. other than that good hiking, huge lots for big rigs. no one around tonight, Friday night in November 2020.
