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. We camped at Apache Trout Campground- Big Lake Rec Area in a Motorhome.

Awesome park-clean restrooms, paved sites, Big Lake close, great camping in September-cooler nites. Make reservation early, most popular park, has full hook-ups. We camped at Apache Trout Campground- Big Lake Rec Area in a Truck Camper.

Beautiful, clean park in Apache Sitgreaves National Forest adjacent to Big Lake. Overlooks a meadow and is surrounded by Ponderous pine, fir, and aspen. Many hiking trails and fishing. I paid the senior rate. Campground hosts friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. We camped at Apache Trout Campground- Big Lake Rec Area in a Travel Trailer.
