Are you looking to beat the heat and try some summer camping? Here are my favorite places to go camping with my family and get out of the heat for a weekend.

KP Cienega

Located in the White Mountains of Eastern Arizona, KP Cienega is secluded and sits at about 9,000 feet of elevation. Although Kramer admits this campground is a bit of a drive from the city, she says it’s well worth it. “There’s a beautiful meadow with plenty of trees. Kids can go run around and play and enjoy the cool weather.”

Hannagan Meadow

Just up the road from KP Cienega, you’ll find Hannagan Meadow. Kramer describes this campground as “magical” and notes that it’s breathtaking at night. “It’s probably one of the best places in the state to look at stars with the naked eye. There’s no light pollution at all.”

Fool Hollow Lake

If you’re new to camping, Fool Hollow Lake is great for beginners. It’s more developed than the previously mentioned sites and has paved roads. There’s fishing, swimming, and boating opportunities. “It has amenities like showers, RV hookups, and bathrooms,” Kramer says. “It’s also close to Show Low if the kids get antsy.”

Hospital Flat

Located along Grant Creek on the southern slope of the Pinaleño Mountains, this historical campground is named for the 1880’s field hospital that used to be there. “There’s quite a few hiking trails as well as a pretty meadow where late summer wildflowers, wild onions, and rhubarb grow.”


Situated between Grant and Moonshine creeks near the top of Mount Graham, Cunningham underwent a renovation in 2009 and features fire pits and grills. Kramer notes it is also a great campground if you’re a traveler by horseback because there’s a corral, which is not very common.
