Rock Crossing Campground is located 2 miles from Blue Ridge Reservoir (also known as C.C. Cragin Reservoir). This narrow, winding body of water looks more like a canyon-bound river than a lake. Nestled between forested canyon walls it provides picturesque water recreation in a secluded, wooded setting.

The Arizona Fish and Game department plants rainbow trout annually and some browns also are present in the lake. There’s plenty of sightseeing, wildlife watching, hiking and mountain biking available here in these canyon-carved uplands. If just talking about all this activity makes you want to kick back and relax with nothing more strenuous to do than watch the squirrels bury pine seeds, then this forested area is probably just the place for you.
