  • Very clean and great trail hiking. There is a $6 fee to get in but totally worth it. The views on the Overton trail are very pretty. There are several trails to choose from. 
  • We have been to Cave Creek Park many times and we have hiked most or all of the trails with G-John being our favorite. We have done bike-camp trips and stayed in the beautiful camp ground which have g...  read more »
  • We hiked this today. We were the only ones there probably because of the time of year. Advice from other reviewers really helped. On Sundays the $6 fee is by honor system & maps are unavailable so we ...  read more »
  • For hikers, the trails are well-groomed, easy to navigate and vista are beautiful. BUT. . . - The $6 entrance fee is outrageous, especially for Maricopa County tax payers who paid for the park already. - The is no traffic light at the Carefree Highway-32nd Street intersection, which makes leaving via 32nd Street a lengthy and/or dangerous "adventure" if you want to turn left, especially during periods of high traffic. (And if you turn right, you can't make a U-turn for 3 miles.) - Hiking behind a string of horses is NOT my idea of a good time. Even if you don't mind the odor, you have to master the Monte Python "Silly Walks" to avoid the copious poop and pee. If I could, I'd really give it 2.5 stars. The hundreds of miles of trails in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve aren't as neat and tidy (horse poop not withstanding), nor are the views as spectacular, but the Preserve is free and accessible. Take a hint, Maricopa County execs.
  • We had a great time! Bathrooms and showers were clean, in fact the entire park was clean. We hiked, enjoyed the sunset and brilliant stars. The coyotes howling at night and javelina grunting kept us entertained. We enjoyed the desert winter camp out.
  • Kinda expensive at 30 a night but that's Phoenix. Nice trails. Quiet and peaceful. Busy in the mornings and evenings. Great staff, but the area seems snooty. Nice cactus too (all sorts) but generic.
  • What a fantastic place to camp! There is nothing like the desert sky and this campground does not disappoint. Keep in mind that there is not a lot of shade, so if you are going during the summer seasons you may be a bit hot. The toilet facilities were clean and the campground (at least when I went, during the winter) was very peaceful. You are close to a decent sized town found in Cave Creek. There are some fantastic places to get breakfast there. I would look forward to camping here again.
  • Outstanding park for hiking, picnicking, and in the evening, star gazing. Huge forest of saguaro cactus.
