Description

Shaded by the towering ponderosa pines, Sapillo Group Area Campground is ideal for you and your tree-hugging closest friends and family. Comely situated within the confines of the Gila National Forest, this enormous, dispersed campground is ideal for backpackers who don’t fancy amenities. Sapillo Group Area Campground is frill-free and occupants are strongly encouraged to bring their own firewood, as well.

I don't think you have to be part of a group to camp here. When I visited there were several groups but plenty of space. There are little spots scattered everywhere you look. I love all the grass here!

Its pretty and its free but it was also insanely loud when i was there, with an ATV trek around the camp ground and RVers playing cowboy music till 3 am.. i would go again but I would camp far out of earshot of the main area.

It is a cat camping adventure in the pines! ( just no ATVS and backing dogs, please!)Fig cherishes every moment in the Gila Wilderness on a camping and hiking adventure.It is a spiritual adventure for Fig to go camping and connect with her wold roots.
