I stayed here for one night in July 2017 with a group of friends from my Yoga Teacher Training Program. Just down the road from Box Canyon Trail (which is an awesome 2 mile hike roundtrip and straight down the mountain), and about 15 minutes from downtown Payson, the campground is clean, quiet, and the hosts are as friendly as can be. We had plenty of room to practice at each site for our upcoming Practicums as a group, and they are spacious enough for 2 very large tents per. The sunset and sunrise views between the ponderosa pines are breathtaking, and the air is crisp, clean and fresh. Tons of hiking options, and definitely plenty of amazing outdoor vibes!
