QHHV+MH Three Forks, Arizona

33°47'21.3"N 109°24'36.2"W

Located adjacent to the west fork of the Black River in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. At an elevation of 7,740 feet. Open between May and October. There are no formal, designated campsites. There are about a dozen visible sites with not much privacy as there is no undergrowth below the tall pines. However, all the sites offered dappled shade. There is one pit toilet (two stalls) in service, but no water or facilities of any kind.

Bear Canyon Lake, AZ 85541

Bear Canyon Lake is one place we go most often. There are plenty of places to setup camp and lots to explore. We have never had a issue finding a spot to camp, at times can barely hear anyone around. We pass all the nearest sites near the lake and go past the powerlines where there are plenty of sites spread out. From there it is a bit of a hike to the lake, or short drive. Depending upon the season you can hear elk and coyotes in the area.

Bradshaw City was founded as a mining camp in 1863 after prospectors working on the northwest slope of Mount Wasson discovered gold. The camp began as a loose collection of tents which were soon replaced with hundreds of buildings including dance halls, restaurants, saloons, and hotels as the population inflated to around 5000 people. The town supported the Tiger Mine.

Rising to over 9,000 feet from the desert floor, camping and picnicking on Mount Lemmon is a 365 day affair thanks to its unique changes in elevation and location in Southern Arizona.. There are also plenty of day use areas with easy access right off of the highway.
