If you are adventurous and looking for a unique spot, this is it. The setting is classic southwest Pinyon-Juniper country. The sites are laid out in a thoughtful manner to enjoy the natural surroundings. Howard was cheerful on our arrival even though we had no reservation. The walking trail provided a really magical opportunity to see a part of the canyon not generally accessible, walk it in beauty!!! It's not "developed" but integrated into the beautiful locale. We awoke to a visit from a mountain bluebird; now that's happiness.
Nice forest service campground in the Ponderosa pines. Has a nice trail leading to the scenic Rim Vista trail or you can bushwhack a fairly short distance to the undeveloped area of the Mogollon Rim. For camping right on the edge of the Rim continue on FR 300 about another mile to FR 9350 on the left. (see the map here http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/asnf/maps/images/rim_lakes_map.pdf) We walked there and there were some spectacular RV and tent sites right on the edge of the Rim.
Another beautiful setting, surrounded by desert life but within minutes of Phoenix. A great trail system surrounds the park. The volunteer hosts were gracious and helpful. We flew into Phoenix picked up a rental RV and went out of way to stay again a week later upon our return.
