Likely In-Season!
Elks Picnic Ground is located west of Arizona State Route 87 (milepost 309.9), approximately 30 miles southwest of Winslow and 60 miles northeast of Payson. The elevation at this campground is approximately 6,500 feet. It is situated in an area of the Coconino National Forest where the terrain begins to fade from ponderosa pines into pinyon/juniper stands. This campground facility was designed and constructed by the Winslow Elks Lodge and generously donated to the Mogollon Rim Ranger District.

This is a fenced 6.5 acre secluded group camp site. There are picnic benches, fire ring, a horseshoe court, poles for a volleyball net, a small swing set, and a flag pole. The site can accommodate up to 300+ people. Water and garbage disposal is provided at this site. There are vault toilets, but for every 25 people after the first 50, the group will need to provide toilet facilities (port-a-pots, self-contained camp trailer, etc.).
