We continue to stay at this park abiding by the rule whereby you can only stay 14 days in a site and then you have to move so off we move. The sites are always nicely maintained and have site privacy and great views but in the winter time these sites can be hard to come by unless you have a reservation. So get your reservation early!
Campground: Cave Creek Regional Campground
Location: Cave Creek, Arizona
Site: 23, 48, and 52 (back-ins)
Services: W/E (50AMP)
Comments: A lovely campground with great views and good hiking. There is a dump station at the campground.
Site 23 is in the main campground and on the corner of a loop with nice site privacy and great views.
There used to be an overflow area for RVs to park overnight while waiting for a site to become free. A few years ago they converted the parking lot to campground sites which are reservable. These sites (referred to as The Village) are much closer together than the main campground sites but offer campfire pit, picnic table, and long sites with easy access to restrooms and dumpsters. And in a pinch when you need a site these are usually the last ones available. We stayed in two different ones, site 48 and 52 and find them both quite suitable.
Here are a few pictures of some sites in the main campground, all mostly level, wide, and nice site privacy.
The Village (Old Overflow Parking Area)
The Village is the old overflow are which has been converted into sites. They did a nice job squeezing in quite a few more sites to try and expand the campground.
We have hiked every trail in this park multiple times. They are all quite nice and offer maintained trails (cleaned regularly from the horses which also use the trail) with some elevation gain and terrific scenery.
And, as usual, there are some terrific sunsets just about every night.
We stayed at the park over Christmas and enjoyed doing some Christmas light sightseeing throughout the Valley. The are area is filled with wonderful displays of lights with many set to music.
