    From the Phoenix area: Take the Beeline Hwy 87 north to signed turnoff for Sycamore Creek approx .50 mile north of Mile Post 222; Turn left across divided highway onto paved Old Hwy 87 (at GPS coordinates N33.92158 W-111.45527) and follow this paved road to dirt road on right (FR201) at 1.20 miles; Turn right and cross over the cattle-guard and drive 1.2 miles to the fork of FR25 and FR201; Veer slightly right and continue following FR201 up hill for an additional 6.0 miles to the easy to miss but signed FR3348 right turn-downhill (at GPS coordinates N34.00235 W-111.44238); On this .45 mile FR3348 to its end at GPS coordinates N34.00722 W-111.43726, there are four(4) nice vehicle camping/campsite locations that will accommodate a large number of vehicle campers: Campsite locations #1 and #2 are accessible from the FR201 turn off by 2WD High Clearance vehicles when dry; Campsite locations #3 and #4(what I call the "main/largest" camping area at FR3348 .45ml road end) are accessible from the FR201 turn off by "only" 4WD High Clearance vehicles with upgraded tires recommended;

    Please Note: If there is a large group of vehicle campers with a limited number of 4WD High Clearance vehicles, and easier access campsite areas #1 and #2 fill up, then 4WD vehicle shuttle arrangements can be made to shuttle campers equipment the short distance to a suitable camping location at campsite area #3 and the largest, most Pine Tree shaded area #4 at 6105ft elevation; All four of these campsite areas are suitable for either in vehicle, hammock, backpack, or tent camping; Please also see posted 8.8mile GPS Driving Track for your reference, download, and following (this 8.8ml track starts at the turn off of Hwy87 at Mile post 222.5 and stops at the end of FR3348 at above referenced Campsite #4; Please also see posted 3/31/11 photo sets for additional information regarding FR3348 and campsite areas 1-4;
