Free Camping Greens Peak AZ



Greens Peak located east of Show Low on the 260 off of FR 117 (Click Here For Map) There is a ton of dispersed camping in the area for rigs both big, and small.

 As you can see above its not the prettiest of sites, but after 11 days with painfully slow internet I decided to camp as close to the towers as possible. Elevation of  camp is around 9450' which is about as high as you can get in AZ, in a vehicle.

Weathers been a cool Mid 70's during the day to mid 40's at night. Winds been gusting its blown smoke in twice now, but there has been no fire alerts, or warning yet, so hopefully they have it under control. Heres more pictures of the area....

  1. I don't see any toilets in your pictures. None there? You probably have one of those fancy-scmancy rigs with a bucket place.

  2. Looks great. Candy looks very happy. I think you are OK as the fire goes or they would have made you move out. The wind down here is blowing but not to bad until a gust comes up. May not be able to get out again until after the 4th. Thanks for the great map and info. Have a great time.

  6. Demonstrates one of the best aspects of a mobile lifestyle in the southwest: when it gets too hot or too cold, just change your elevation. Often only a few miles away.

    1. Hey Steve,

      Enforcement is definitely around I was already approached by a ranger once, after only 5 days. Hopefully things settle once the monsoons hit.

      Last year I stayed in the forest 10 weeks, but bounced around every few weeks. Companies always good. Ill be changing locations on Sunday. If you make it to the area, or have any questions shoot me a email. Its Hoboberg@gmail.com
