A number of popular camping sites in the area allow for a combination of hiking, biking, fishing, climbing, horseback riding, swimming, wading, birding, photography, wildlife-watching, picnicking, tent camping, and camp trailers and recreational vehicles. Red Rock Passes are necessary for parking on national forest lands; the cost for a campsite ranges $15–20 per night, and fees apply for any additional vehicles. Only cash and Arizona checks are accepted. Some sites tend to get quite crowded on weekends, and only about half of the sites take reservations, including Manzanita, Chavez Crossing Group Site, Pine Flat, and Cave Springs Campgrounds. Other, nonreservation sites include Bootlegger, Beaver Creek, and Clear Creek Camp and Group Site Campgrounds. Most sites do not have utility hookups and have a maximum stay of 7 days. To be safe, always bring plenty of water. For more information about camping in the region, visit www.redrockcountry.org and click on Recreational Activities (Red Rock District).
