Moqui Group Campground consists of three sites/pods, Simmons, Spooner, and Ernst. They are located off FR 138, approximately one mile from Arizona State Route 87 (milepost 298.8). This group campground is approximately 40 miles southwest of Winslow, 50 miles northeast of Payson and 70 miles southeast of Flagstaff, in a beautiful setting surrounded by mature ponderosa pine, oak, and quaking aspen. The elevation at the campground is 6,970 feet. Mogollon Rim Ranger District acknowledges, with gratitude, the donations and support extended by the Winslow Kiwanis Club in the development, concept, and construction of Moqui Group Campground.
