Campgrounds north of Phoenix to close for the summer

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Some of the more remote sites on the Cave Creek Ranger District will close for the summer.  

The following sites will be closed from May 15 to October 1, 2016:  

  • Mesquite Campground
  • Horseshoe Campground 
  • Fisherman Point (also known as Catfish Point).  

These sites are closing due to decreased use and to allow resources to be focused around Bartlett Lake and Lower Verde River which are the more highly visited sites during the summer season.

Alternative sites for camping are Riverside Campground, Box Bar, and CCC campground.  The trail to the river above Fisherman Point remains open, and the public can continue to fish along the river.
