Popular campsite on the edge of the Mogollon Rim - spectacular views!

Dispersed camping with a view!

With no site fees and no reservations, this camping spot is incredibly popular.  Note that several campsites are bordered by a 200' vertical drop. This area is not recommended for families with young children or people who are uneasy with heights.  

All campsites have fire pits with grill tops, however please adhere to all fire restrictions.  

Make sure to check out nearby Woods Canyon Lake, which has kayak rentals and a great lake loop hiking trail.

Check out the Forest Service website for updates and fire danger.

Dispersed Camping on Mogollon Rim (FR 9350) Reviews

It can get windy on the rim. Where we camp it's a very rocky road! Hard with a trailer but we make it. There are many other campsites that aren't right on the rim.

Great location for free camping.

There are many good camping sites with amazing views in this area.
