Cholla Campground holds the awesome title of being the largest entirely solar-powered campground in America! Located just five miles north of Roosevelt Dam and Theodore Roosevelt Lake, these campsites are definitely worth the weekend trip. Picnic in the shade, get out on the water, or spend the afternoon bass fishing. This spot is family-friendly and has something for everyone to love, from playgrounds to showers to warm and toasty campfires. Don’t forget the s’mores!

The tent sites here are amaaaaazing! Right on the lake with a small path down. We came at the end of December and had the whole tenting circle to ourselves. Really chill spot to kick back. Plus- there are Arizona trail trailheads close by so plenty of hiking. The vineyard section gives gorgeous views of the lake, four peaks and superstitions.

This campground is pretty big...I think there are 5 loops, possibly more. There are tent only sites as well as sites for trailers. Each site has a fire pit and a shade ramada above the table which was a great feature. We had a tent only site and ours was HUGE but set up pretty close to the road. Most sites are small but can accommodate a decent size tent and many are set away from the road if you want more privacy. Bathrooms were clean and we had pump water and trash nearby.
If you like exploring, there are a good amount of trails to walk, although there is not direct path down to the water that we could find. Playgrounds for the kids. Boat launch off to the right when you pull in with ample parking.
Happy camping!
