Springerville, AZ Campgrounds

Springerville, AZ Campgrounds
Springerville is located in the northern corner of eastern Arizona. It is the largest town in the region and many campers and tourists flock here in the summer to take advantage of the scenery, campgrounds, and hundreds of hiking and cycling opportunities. A number of campgrounds provide different levels of service, from primitive sites to those with hot indoor showers and paved parking spots.
 

Benney Creek Campground

The Benney Creek campground lies west of Springerville. It is a small, primitive campground with 24 sites for tent camping and trailers less than 24 feet long. The site has vault toilets, drinking water, picnic tables and fire rings. Benney Creek is close to Mount Baldy, the second highest mountain in Arizona, at 11,400 feet. Access to the Benney Creek Campground is from Highway 260, the major east-west highway in this part of Arizona.



This highway and the road into the campground afford bicycle riders a good place to ride. Hikers can enjoy the trail from the campground to the Bunch Reservoir, and also explore the area between the campground and the small town of Greer, which lies to the south. Once in Greer, hikers can follow a trail that parallels the Little Colorado River all the way to Mount Graham, ending up at Sheep's Crossing, the gateway for hiking to the top of this mountain, according to the Arizona Trailblazers website.
