About Benny Creek Group Area

Overview

Benny Creek Campground offers group camping in the remote and scenic White Mountains of Arizona. A perfect outdoor retreat for small to medium group gatherings, the campground is situated in a pine forest above Benny Creek and within walking distance of Bunch Reservoir and Greer Lakes. Picnicking, fishing, hiking and boating are often enjoyed by campers.

Recreation

Excellent creek and lake fishing for trout draws anglers to the campground. Hikers can seek out the Squirrel Springs trail nearby.

Those wishing to relax on a scenic drive can explore the White Mountain and Coronado Trail Scenic Byways.

Facilities

Three group camping areas are available for groups up to 24 or 32 guests. When not reserved, these sites may be available on a walk-in basis, and there are several individual sites that are also first-come, first-served.

The campground can accommodate tents, trailers and small motorhomes up to 24 feet. A dump station is available across the highway at Hoyer Campground.

Natural Features

Benny Creek Campground sits in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona at an elevation of 8,250 feet. Campsites are fairly open under a canopy of ponderosa pine. Abert squirrels and chipmunks are common campground residents, and mule deer and elk inhabit the area as well. The nearby reservoir is one of three area lakes on the Little Colorado River.

Summer temperatures can be very pleasant due to the elevation. However, the rainy season often brings afternoon thunderstorms from late June through August. Visitors should come prepared for rain and cool nighttime temperatures.

Nearby Attractions

The nearby town of Greer offers gas, groceries, restaurants and equipment rentals.

Visitors can explore endless vistas and take part in many outdoor activities in the surrounding Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, which encompasses 2 million acres of magnificent mountain country in east-central Arizona and New Mexico.
