Arizona Vacation

Aspen RV Campground Near Payson AZ

By AZ Leisure Staff Writers

Combined with Woods Canyon Lake, Aspen Campground is one of the most popular camping spots in Arizona. Setting at the top of Mogollon Rim at an elevation of about 7,600 feet, expect cool, refreshing summer temperatures within heavy forested areas, plenty of shade and awesome views.

Woods Canyon Lake

Aspen RV Campground is only 1/2 mile from Woods Canyon Lake featuring great trout fishing. The lake marina store offers groceries, supplies, fishing licenses and boat rentals. It also has a battery charging station for trolling motors. Rocky Point day-use picnic area is near the lake store and requires a nominal parking fee.

RV camping, tent camping and trailer camping is permitted with 136 sites. Of those, 27 are first-come while all others may be reserved. During peak season, Aspen fills quickly particularly on weekends and holidays. You will be taking a risky gamble of being shut-out unless you make reservations.

Aspen Campground is located about 35 miles west of Payson, Arizona and 25 miles east of Heber, AZ. The small community of Forest Lakes is about 10 miles away. Willow Springs Lake is located about 7 miles from Woods Canyon Lake.
