Overview

Overview

Upper Wolf Creek Group Campground provides a quiet forest setting for groups of up to 100 people to camp and enjoy the outdoors. The historic town of Prescott, Arizona is just 8 miles away. This facility is set away from other developed recreation sites and offers town amenities, trails and lake recreation within minutes.

Natural Features:

The group area is set at an elevation of 6,000 feet in a ponderosa pine forest mixed with juniper, Gambel oak, native grasses. Boulders are strewn throughout the area. A multitude of colorful wildflowers bloom in the spring and during the summer monsoon season. Goldwater Lake is nearby.

The forest is home to a wide variety of wildlife. Visitors may have the chance to spot deer, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, fox, rabbits, lizards, snakes and birds.

Afternoon thunderstorms are possible from late June through mid-September.

Recreation:

Within the facility, campers can relax with a game of volleyball or horseshoe. Numerous hiking and mountain biking trails are found in the Bradshaw Mountains around the campground, and 15-acre Goldwater Lake is just a few miles away. Boaters, canoers and kayakers can make use of the lake's dock and boat ramp. Anglers try for trout, sunfish, crappie, largemouth bass and channel catfish in the calm waters.

A drive down unpaved Forest Road 97 reveals mountain views and passes through a burn scar from a 2002 wildfire.

Facilities:

The group site has 13 picnic tables, five grills and one campfire ring. Trees are thinly spaced in some areas, allowing ample space for group activities, RV parking (up to 40 ft.) and camping. The facility is equipped with an accessible vault toilet, but the site is not accessible. Drinking water and hookups are not provided.

Nearby Attractions:

This site is a convenient camping spot for groups who reserve the Groom Creek Schoolhouse day use picnic area nearby.
