  • I was visiting this past week. This is not an operational park from the entrance I came in. You are screwed if you go in-no gps, no cell coverage, no signs, roads out with no warning. I went in an hour hoping for a way to get out. There was none. I had to go back out the same way I came. Unfortunately, I did not have an actual map. I bought one immediately after this, but there is no way the area I was in was habitable parkwise. Sadder still, was the fact that this was a dismal photo op. No view. No fowl, fauna. Zip. I'm a senior, female traveling alone. I take all precautions, but what is on your site and what is actually there are two different things. I just read how big this park actually is and now I'm glad I backed out when I did. I may have run out of gas or worse. Goodness. Not my idea of fun.
  • So this gps search will NOT take you to the place with the wild horses search the Butcher Jones Recreational Park and it's right near the saguaro lake. This gps search took us to the tonto national forest information center in Pheonix so that was annoying and far from where we actually wanted to go, but the employee was very helpful and he told us where to go to see the Wild horses.
  • Been here a few times and every time it takes my breath away. Great drive down and the hike to the bridge is awesome.
  • Tonto National forest campgrond prices have increased almost 200 to 300% ! Also you have to pay $ 10 extra to use the dump station even wen you use the camping! this should be free for the campers that are on the site! This is not fun for the people who have a small income!
  • Great drive and great views
