My son and I come here every year. We stay at the Maverick Campground. It has three fishing ponds that are kept stocked with trout. The campsites are nice and we always have a great time while we are there. There is a river which you can also fish that runs the entire length of the canyon. There is also hiking and rock climbing.

Reserved 4 campsites for a group of youth in March. We're located over 580 miles away, and had to cancel due to the park being closed (fire) and the arrival date being 11 days away. Have called for daily updates, with no answers. Was told since they currently 'plan' to open on the day of our arrival, there won't be a full refund. 'If we remain closed when you arrive, you can get a full refund at that time'. What a situation to be in, almost 600 miles from home with a group of youth in a burned landscape and find out at the last minute that we have no place to stay (but you get a full refund). We'll pass. Thanks for the customer service. Enjoy the extra money and the poor image you project.

Beautiful well Maintained campground. Stayed in the Blackjack tent only area and it was very peaceful. Came to flyfish and had decent luck. Wish they had showers. Will definitely come back and do some hiking as well next time.

Absolutely beautiful. Very scenic drive, with lots of places for gorgeous pictures. Camping, hiking and fishing are the main reason to come here. I was just passing through, but enjoyed the drive both times. :) Saw a "herd" of wild turkeys.

This is a fun place the camp. The trail we hiked was exciting. The lakes are pretty. I'm not into fishing, but if you are this is a good place to go.
