just outside the scenic town of Greer, Rolfe C.
Hoyer Campground basically has everything you need
to have a great camping trip except electric and water hookups. The
facilities are first rate including:
roads and pads
proximity to Greer Lakes and Little Colorado River
with Interpretative programs throughout the summer months
campgrounds are very well maintained and information on the
Greer area or local fishing / hiking can be found at the camp
entrance. Overflow camping is available at Benny
Creek Campground located 1/2 mile north of Rolfe C. Hoyer.
offers a few restaurants if you are tired of camping food,
and the lakes just north of greer offer great fishing. Tunnel
Reservoir, Bunch Reservoir and River Reservoir all are located
across the main highway from the campground and are fed by
the Little Colorado River. Fishing in the Little Colorado
has its rewards also. Rainbow trout, brown trout and native
apache trout swim these waters. Some larger trout have been
caught in the river in the past few years.
Albret Squirrels and elk are native to the area and can be seen regularly near the Greer Lakes.
Rain and afternoon thunderstorms are the norm during the summer months so be prepared for wet conditions and cool temperatures.
Firewood and ice can be purchased at the entrance.
For a wonderful drive, take the back road to Big Lake. leave the campground and turn right onto the road to Greer SR373, take the next right and stay on that road (forest road 87). When you get to the SR273 turn left to get to Big Lake. Try to time this to head back during sunset for some great photo opportunities.
