FR 9350 (Mogollon Rim - Near Woods Canyon Lake)

FR 9350 is a dispersed campground that sits right on the edge on the Mogollon Rim. The town of Christopher Creek is directly below the campground. Several of the campsites are within a few feet of the edge, so choose your site wisely. The road into the campground splits campground with half the campsites near the rim and half the campsites away from the rim. if you have kids, I would suggest a campsite on the right side which is most likely 100 yards or so from the rim

Coshise Stronghold (Dragoon Mountains - Southern Arizona)

This campground is located in a magnificent, rugged canyon that served the famous Apache Indian leader, Cochise, as a refuge against his enemies. As you enter the East Stronghold Canyon, you pass in the shadow of rocks that quite likely served the Apache warrior as perches for his lookouts. The haunting shapes into which the forces of nature have carved those rocks helps make a visit to this charismatic place an unforgettable experience.
