Hualapai Mountain Park Campground Closure

HualapaiSpread0713As wildfires burn across the state, we’re sad to report that one of the campgrounds featured in our Summer Camping Guide (July 2013) is currently closed and under an evacuation order due to the Dean Peak Fire. Hualapai Mountain Park, near Kingman, was evacuated Tuesday, and the fire has spread to more than 4,000 acres. Wild Cow Springs Campground, also in the Hualapai Mountains and which is included in the Arizona Highways Camping Guide, is closed until further notice. The lightning-sparked fire began Friday afternoon. For more information, visit http://www.inciweb.org/incident/3463/.

It’s National Get Outdoors Day. Enjoy Mother Nature & Go Camping!

363This Saturday, June 8, is National Get Outdoors Day, which means you don’t have much of an excuse not to hit the trails, pitch your tent, bust out the bike or dust off your canoe. Looking for a quick camping escape? Managing Editor Kelly Kramer, author of the new Arizona Highways Camping Guide, recommends Lockett Meadow, near Flagstaff.

“It’s set among the aspens, of course, and the 17 sites each offer spectacular views of the wilderness, including the ashy, cinder-cone landscape, Kramer writes. “In summer, the aspens blaze a brilliant green with new leaves. Sites 7 and 8 are perhaps the most scenic, while 13 through 15 are nothing to scoff at, either. You won’t find a bad site in the bunch.”

Information: Flagstaff Ranger District, Coconino National Forest, 928-527-3600 or www.fs.usda.gov/Coconino.

The Arizona Highways Camping Guide is available online at www.arizonahighways.com and at Arizona Costco locations beginning tomorrow.
