10 Parks near Alpine, Arizona
Jun 2014 - $8.00
If you don't mind boondocking, quiet nights, starry skies, and the occasional zombie squirrel peeking in your coach windows, then this is the perfect place for you. This is a US Forrest Service campground, so not many amenities, but they do have a boat ramp, allow tent camping, trailer and RV parking, picnic tables at all sites, toilets nearby, and really cold drinking water from a natural spring. I would highly recommend getting a reservation from the website, we just showed up and happened to luck out and get one of the last spots. It was not the most level site ever made, they could probably take a dozer and flatten some of them a little better when they get a chance. Overall, we had a great stay and will be going back before they close for the season. - Tony and Jen

Where to start. I guess I'll start with the disappointment in finding out that the pull thru site we had reserved some two months earlier was given to someone else less than two hours before our arrival. The women representing herself as owner apologized for having assigned our reserved pull thru to what I learned later to be a two month renter, and offered me a choice of the two remaining back in sites along with a $10 discount for our inconvenience. All this after I had worked hard to convince the same owner that our 2003 motorhome was "worthy" of being in her park when making the reservation. Needless to say at 4:00 in the afternoon in Alpine, Arizona there was little else we could do but accept her offer and make the best of it. The campground is in a grove of tall pines that give good shade but the roads thru the park, as with the sites themselves, are a combination of dirt and gravel making for a very dusty campground. From our experience I would say this professed "senior" park is geared toward the long term camper and NOT for the one night stop. We made a mistake of accepting the high park rating that were based on but two reviews. This park, in our opinion, based on no bathrooms and all the dust rates, at best, a 3 out of 10 rating. No, we would NOT stay at Coronado Trail again if traveling thru Arizona in the future. - Sweatlife

I heard about this park from friends in another RV park. It's everything they said! Quiet, peaceful, very well managed! Owners are great folks and very accommodating. Starry nights listening to the elk and owls. I've been here since May 1st and will stay until late fall and I will be back next year! - Dean M

This is a very nice park located about 3/4 mile south of Alpine along the Coronado Trail on Hwy 191; the park is on the east side of the street. Definitely the best park in the Alpine area. Most sites have large pine trees, and sites are level with full hookups. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The park setting is in the pines at 8050 feet. It is a nice quiet setting with beautiful surroundings. Lots of hiking and ATV trails for those that love the outdoors. We stayed here for one month. - Skis

The park is not very far off the hwy, but far enough not to be overly distrubed by the road noise. We stayed in a group loop spot. It is very close quarters, but has 2 picnic tables and fire rings. One thing that occured regularly during our stay is the power goes off at all hours of the day and night. It is not close to the bathrooms, but an easy walk to them. The spots have trees surrounding them. Some single spots are good size. There are full hookups and non-hookup sites. Those with hookups have both 50 & 30 amp. The water pressure is good, be sure to have a water pressure guage to prevent problems with the pressure in the rig. The length of the spot is good, but the width is what makes the spot we were in not very desirable. The park needs to spread more gravel on the sites so they don't become so muddy when it rains. The roads are dirt. The showers are adequate. However, note there is no shelf and only 2 hooks. These hooks are close to the shower and items may get wet when the shower is on. The water is almost hot and has a timer on it. So you must push it on frequently. The showers are individual suites and clean.(The building has one "room" for each sex with only a toilet, it also has 2 other "rooms" with toilet and shower.) There are also water spickets close by the shower buildings. There is no cell signal in the campground. It's about 30 miles from Pinetop/Lakeside. There you can acquire good 3G AT&T service. However, can't retrieve voicemail. Alpine is about 20 miles and also good 3G AT&T service. There is a small store on the lake about 2 miles down the road that sells a few supplies for fishing, the RV, clothes, food and ice. It's part of the fishing area and it rents boats and has a launch ramp. Overall the camp is clean and well kept and we'd stay there again. We did not notice any pull through sites, but many sites are long enough for big rigs. We had full hookups and found the price a bit high. - Jjtrips

We stayed at Apache Trout Campground in September. The campground is surrounded by forest and looks more like a a forest service campground than one that would have full hookups. We were in site 84 a long back in. All sites are back in in this campground but are easy to get into even with our 35 footers. We had a fire ring and table at the site. The hook ups all worked well. The sites are 20/30/50 amps. All hook ups are at the very back of the sites so you must make sure to have plently of length on hoses,etc. This is a beautiful campground and we have been here many times before and will continue to come back to. - blowing weeds

Have visited here the past three September. A very nice National Forest campground in the White Mtns. Campground sits an easy hundred yards or so from Big Lake. Nearest town is Eager, about 23 miles away, but there is a small camp store a half mile before the campground on Big Lake that provides fishing/camping supplies and some basics. No cell service in campground, but you can get a signal at the Big Lake store. This is one of only two NFS campgrounds in the state of Arizona with electric hookups, therefore it books fast. Level gravel sites. Extremely clean bathrooms and showers.
Camp layout is odd. About half the sites are FHU while the other half are dry. The FHU and dry sites are interspersed among each other, not in separate areas loops. Additionally, over half of the hookup sites are set up as doubles, so you would have to pay for 2 sites.
If you can live without hookups, the National Forest campground next door (Rainbow Campground) offers more for your money - huge paved sites, good bathrooms, same fresh mountain air, for a lot less money. Would stay here again if I could get the right site, a single standalone electric site otherwise would first consider options next door at Rainbow. - TravelinTail

Very friendly and informative staff. Easy to find - right off hwy 373. Has lots of trees. Each site has gravel and relatively level with a picnic table and fire ring. There are no hookups at all. There is a toilet (out house) on each loop of the campground with a fresh water spigot that has a hose receptacle on the end. At the front of the campground there are flushing toilets with big hot showers. They are designed as suites (individual) toliet with shower. There are dumpsters and a dump station. Those not camping here can use the dump station and dumpster for a fee. There is a camp host that monitors the entrance. They sell ice and firewood. There is no cell service at all in the campground. You can drive or hike across the street to the reservoir area to get a small signal to make .calls or receive texts and emails. Most sites are back-in, with room to park next to or in front of RV. All the roads are dirt/gravel. There is water available at the restrooms with a separate threaded water spigot. There is fishing nearby.
We'd stay here again. - Jjtrips

This is a forest service campground so there are no hookups. However, it is one of our favorite places to camp in the White Mountains. All the sites are back-in. Reservations can be made at Recreation.gov. This is in the forest, so most of the sites are shaded. We had room to put out our awning. - jem11

Beautiful park with gorgeous setting in the tall pines. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Sites are huge with plenty of room to spread out or enjoy the privacy. Even in busy season, its quiet and not heavily used. - TrueView

Stayed here twice for one night each time. Great little overnighter. Nice people and the pull-thru sites are big rig accessible. Gravel sites that are level. Great value for the money. Will stay here again if passing through the area. - hawkandmegan

No TV reception on our antenna, free WiFi but doesn't work. We did not mind at all. Nice and quiet little campground and the place looks good, certainly for a few days. Gravel sites. There are some stores in the neighborhood like Basha's. Very friendly owners. When passing by we will sure be back. - Traveller Excel

Close to town. Large gravel sites. WiFi is OK. No cable, but satellite worked well. Be sure to call for a reservation because only a few sites are designated for people traveling through who want to stay for a few days. A nice clean park with friendly people. Would stay here again. - ctk3

We have been FULL TIMERS for over 20 years and this was the only time we gave a deposit ($100) sight unseen for an RV space. Don't know what the other reviewers were looking at but we've been in a few RV parks over the years and my wife took one look and said 'NO WAY' ! Come to think of it: just who are those other reviewers?? Some residents stored belongings in front yard, boxes and all. Entire property was unlevel let alone the spaces! Lots of old vehicles and small bicycles scattered around. I've seen neater junk yards. Of course owner was 'not available' to discuss situation. We travel with 2 pets and after a long day we had to find a park, so we moved down the road and a later conversation with the owner about our deposit proved to be as fruitful as the park itself. He no doubt considered $100 a windfall. My advice: stay away from this place and never, never make a deposit sight unseen, regardless of how 'nice' the owner is on the phone or what the website 'looks like.' - asphaltmaniac

Nice clean park in town. Friendly help. We liked that we could walk to restaurants and store. Old time feel to the town. Passing through on way to CA., will definitely stay on return. Only 9 because they need more gravel. Owner gives a AARP discount if you call him. - B4Bob4

This Good Sam park is a combination of park model homes, trailers and 5th wheels with insulation around the underside, older and smaller trailers, and other assorted living quarters. That being said, we got in with our reservation, grounds are mostly gravel with trees, wifi is be best we have seen anywhere, power is good. I would use it as an overnight only and would plan to miss it in the future. - Tim and Susan

10 miles north we lost a wheel. Called and was told if we could get there, a spot would be saved for us. Owner got us in touch with mechanics and took me to see them in his car.
Everyone was helpful and friendly. Were invited to the park Halloween party. Owner gave us the month rate although we stayed less. If you have to have troubles, this is the place. - bilmo

Picked this park as it was the first RV park we saw coming into Springerville from the North. Friendly welcome. Good Sam discount.
Easy pull-up site with full hookups. Trees blocked Direct TV. I hooked up to park cable, but only got snow. Could have been my cable. No big deal. Mostly permanents here. They come from work at dark and leave early. Clean, quiet.
As a stopover it was fine. For more than a night? Probably not unless you plan on living there. - Brujomar

Stayed here between Christmas and New Year to spend a day skiing/snowboarding in the resort. While the facilities are limited the location is astonishing. We stayed here after there had been a very heavy snow fall the day before and the sites had been dug out and were separated by 6 foot high snow mounds! Overnight temperature dropped to 5.5F and the morning was beautiful clear sunny AZ day. Staff were delightful and no rush to check out, we did feel for the folks in a pop up given the temperature. - UK Traveller
