Beautiful campground with great trail access

Great campground and perfect spot to bookend a backcountry trip into the Superstition Wilderness, as the First Water TH is less than a ten minute drive away. Awesome views of Superstition Mt. and Flatiron from pretty much every campsite here, it seems... Walk-in campsites available, too, if you want to be just a bit farther away from cars/RVs. Good little trail networks for hiking nearby the campground, as well.

When you don't want to work too hard for amazing views :)

This snowshoe is stunning! The views of the Tatoosh range and Mt. Rainier are unreal. Only a 900 ft. gain and then you can amble along the ridge and explore the area to your heart's content. Stop in the visitor's center at Paradise before you head out to check in with a ranger about snow conditions and get a little map that marks the primary avalanche zones you'll encounter around the area.

Incredibly special place

There's really nothing like this spot. Standing face to face with a 7ft pictograph made thousands of years ago in the middle of the desert is a powerful thing. Please respect this area and don't contribute any of your own art to the galleries!
