  • Very nice programs. We went there for the Haunted Hike to Clay Mine and the Haloween party. Very friendly people and lots of interesting things. They even have a live rattlesnake at the nature center. 
  • We walked the trails. The ranger was very helpful in suggesting which trails. The trails are also clearly marked on the maps. It was quiet peaceful and well maintined. 
  • My husband and I were waiting for friends to get off of work just after we arrived in the Phoenix area. With several hours to kill we used our 'All Trails' app and found this gem in Carefree, AZ. This...  more »

  • Beautiful night sky. Spacious camp sites. Burros and cayote serenade at night. My dogs decided to join in Good time had by all
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
