Arizona’s White Mountain Region
When you think of Arizona you most likely think of rugged western towns, Saguaro Cactus, Tombstone, Phoenix, and Tucson. For most visitors to the state, the idea of higher elevations, rivers and lakes, hunting and fishing, and even winter skiing probably don’t come to mind. Arizona is lucky to have such a varied landscape. And the White Mountains region is extremely unique itself.
With mountains over 9,000 feet, ski resorts, national forests, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, places to ride horses, and much more, the White Mountains of Arizona are incredibly unique in Arizona. There are no Saguaros at the elevation you find the White Mountains. There are open plains, beautiful mountains, and cooler temperatures year-round.
At 7,000 feet above sea level, the Springerville RV park offers cooler temperatures year-round. Sometimes up to 20 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area. During the hot summers in Southern Arizona, Springerville and the surrounding areas offer a fantastic getaway for residents of Arizona and visitors alike!
Thousands of miles of trails
According to the US Forest Service, the White Mountains Region of Arizona boasts thousands of miles of trails. The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest stretches from Heber to Clifton, and Springerville is right in the middle.
The National Forest in this area covers over 2 million acres of land, offering a little something for everyone. For detailed information regarding the National Forest, be sure to visit their website for the latest of trail closures, fire warnings, and information on all of the things to do in the forest.
Hiking, Mountain Biking, Equestrian, and OHV Trails
The White Mountains of Arizona offer a lot of amazing recreational opportunities. Whether you’re looking to take a hike for the day, ride your mountain bike into the forest, take a trail ride horseback, or have a little fun on your dirt bike or quad, the area offers trails for all of these activities. Many trails are mixed-use, so be sure that you understand the right of way on backcountry trails! There are also specific trails for OHVs only, and similar for hiking, biking, and horseback trails.
Springerville RV Park is located minutes from downtown Springerville. A short drive out of town will bring you to many National Forest camps and trails. Some of the roads to USFS campsites are fairly narrow, and not meant for larger RV’s. Fortunately, you can stay with us and use our park as your launching point into the White Mountains!
