Likely In-Season!
Kehl Springs Camp is located in a stand of ponderosa pines right at the brink of one of Arizona's most awesome geologic features, the Mogollon Rim. Just a short distance from these shady campsites the rim brings the Colorado Plateau to an end with a precipitous drop-off that plunges two thousand feet from forested highland to Sonoran desert.

From this high perspective, you can enjoy spectacular views of Four Peaks, the Sierra Anchas, and the Mazatzals. At night, the lights of Payson wink up from 2,000 feet down and 15 miles away. Other recreation activities to enjoy nearby include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and boating. The General Crook Historic Trail and the Rim Country Scenic Drive pass right by the campground.

This campground does not have facilities for large groups or group activities. If one campsite cannot accommodate your group (eight people), please see Elks, Moqui, or Long Valley group campgrounds.
