Moqui Group Campground: water sources available


The Moqui Group Campground sits in a beautiful setting surrounded by ponderosa, oak, and aspen at an elevation of 6,915'. The group sites include fire rings, grills, picnic tables, vault toilets, and trash collection , and piped drinking water (sorry, no electricity, and for the month of August, no water).

The campground is in a forested setting. The nearby Mogollon Rim is one of the most striking geologic features in the state. This steep escarpment, measured in thousands of feet, stretches from New Mexico diagonally across two thirds of Arizona and offers sweeping views of the landscape.

Many visitors spend time relaxing and exploring the area. The nearby C.C. Cragin Reservoir and Knoll Lake offer opportunities for water-based recreation, while the Arizona National Scenic Trail, General Crook National Recreation Trail, and historic Cabin Loop Trail System offer opportunities for hikers, bicyclist, and equestrian users. There are also several Fire Lookout Towers in the area.

Carpooling is highly recommended.

The community of Happy Jack, Arizona has a gas station, two convenience stores and two restaurants.

From Payson, Arizona, drive 46 miles north on AZ 87 toward Winslow. Turn right onto FR 138 and drive about one mile to the campground.
