  • Went on a jeep tour with 40 coworkers for a 3 hour tour. The guides were entertaining, knew their history and desert botony. Learned a lot about the cacti, the Native American Tribes who lived in the ...  read more »
  • We went out to Tonto National Forest. Its a beautiful desert area with vista views. And as one gets higher up it become more your ponderosa pine forests. We went out on Saguaro Lake. It had lots of sc...  read more »
  • The Tonto National Forest covers a wide area, but the beauty is pretty much the backyard of the East Valley. Spent a morning at the Granite Reef, Coon Bluff area hoping to catch the wild horses that m...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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
  • FYI: For any camping here, you have to buy the Tonto pass in ADVANCE. You cannot get it at the campground. Only at the Visitors Center, or at "local merchants".
