Chevelon Lake Campground is situated deep into Sitgreaves National Forest. The road is slow and takes at least an hour in the best conditions from Woods Canyon Lake. The reward is fantastic fishing and relative solitude. If you don't mind hiking, the 3/4 mile hike to the lake is steep but well marked. Chevelon Canyon was created by impounding the waters of Chevelon Creek. Both Woods Canyon Lake and Willow Springs Lake drain into the creek and help fill Chevelon. There is a small boat dock on the north end of Chevelon Lake.

There is a visitor center at the intersection of S.R. 260 and Rim Road on the south side of the road as you approach the turnoff to Woods Canyon Lake.

There is no water at the campground.

Directions

From Woods Canyon Lake, backtrack to the Woods Canyon Recreation Area entrance at Rim Road and take a right. Follow Rim Road for 5.3 miles to F.R. 169 and turn right. Follow F.R. 169 for 13 miles to the turnoff at F.R. 169B. Turn right at the turnoff to the campground.
