Wow – this is a huge campground. Something like 365 campsites. But most are for boaters. The boat launch areas are huge. Bigger than WalMart Parking Lots.

Here is what Hazzards to know.

Coati Loop Is a mixed use campground for RV and tents. Coati has great tent campsites out on Peninsulas. This is where we stayed. It is the first right as you enter the campground.

Mule Deer Loop is an all tent campsite. It is on a nice ridge but is away from the lake. It was closed so I could not scout it.

I liked Coati campsites 8, 9 &10 but they are too far from the restrooms.

I chose Coati campsite 20. I chose 18 & 19 for my friends. Great lake views and close to the restrooms.

We heard boats out on the lake at night. We heard coyotes during the night. My friends in campground 19 camplained about my “growling” (snoring was not an appropriate description).

You need a Tonto National Forest Fee permit in your window and need to pay a $6 per night campsite fee to the Camp Host. If you smart ass the camp site host, I think the campsite fee goes up to a franklin per night. (just kidding - be nice)
