Overview

Winn Campground is situated near the Mt. Baldy trailheads and the East and West Forks of the Little Colorado River, making it an excellent choice for anglers and hikers. The facility offers many amenities and a variety of campsites, from group sites to tent-only and standard individual sites. It offers a peaceful and remote setting, as well as convenience to a host of outdoor activities and scenic areas.

Natural Features:

Winn Campground is situated in a thick pine and aspen forest at an elevation of 8,500 feet near Lee Valley and Big Lake. Several smaller lakes are located within a short drive. From the campground, visitors can take in scenic views of the surrounding White Mountains. Some campsites border a large meadow where elk are often seen at twilight.

Summer temperatures can be very pleasant because of the elevation. However, the rainy season often brings afternoon thunderstorms from late June through August. Visitors should come prepared for rain and cool nighttime temperatures.

Recreation:

Several nearby lakes invite anglers and boaters to fish for trout, including stocked Apache trout at Lee Valley Reservoir. With its proximity to the Mt. Baldy Wilderness, Winn Campground also attracts hikers. Mount Baldy tops out at 11,420 feet and is the tallest peak in Arizona's White Mountains.

Facilities:

The facility provides 63 campsites, including some that can accommodate RVs or tents, others are for tents only and two group sites can accommodate up to 50 people each. The group sites are especially popular with scout groups and family reunions.

Due to water restrictions, RVs must arrive with their water tanks already filled. Water is available at Big Lake, just 10 miles away if needed. Limited drinking water is available at the campground. Firewood can be purchased on-site.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors can explore endless vistas and take part in many outdoor activities in the surrounding Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, which encompasses 2 million acres of magnificent mountain country in east-central Arizona and New Mexico. The nearest town is Springerville, Arizona.
