This campground is difficult to get to but sure pays off as it is the jewel of the lower Bradshaw mountains. A 4WD vehicle or high clearance 2WD is needed to traverse the bumpy unimproved road that leads out of Crown King. Crown King is an old west style town with a couple of restaurants and a country store/ service station with camping supplies if you were absent-minded and left something at home. Hazlett Hollow has 3 sided wooden camping shelters with concrete floors in each campsite. You can fish at nearby Horsethief Lake for largemouth bass, sunfish, bluegill and channel catfish.

 

Hazlett Hollow Campground is an excellent place to base your camp for exploring the Castle Creek Wilderness.

Kentuck Springs Campground is just a bit farther up the road but has no water. and is not as developed.

Turney Gulch Campground is the group site among the three campgrounds nestled together in the Horsethief Basin. Turney has potable water and requires reservations at least three days in advance by calling the Bradshaw District at 928-443-8000. there is also a ramada/pavillion and a restroom which is handicapped accessible.

Directions Courtesy of U.S. Forest Service:

The best route from Prescott is by way of Mayer, particularly in winter. Take Main St. through the town of Mayer continuing east to the junction with the Antelope Creek Road. Continue southeast on this road for approximately 9 miles to Cordes. At the road junction in Cordes take Forest Road 259 to Crown King. At Crown King take FR 259A south for 0.5 miles to the junction with FR 52. Take FR 52 southeast for approximately 6 miles to the campground just northeast of Horsethief Lake.

If approaching from Interstate I-17, take the Bumble Bee exit and continue north on this dirt road, taking FR 259 to Crown King. Then take FR 259A south from Crown King to here it joins FR 52. Take FR 52 southeast for about 6 miles to the Horsethief Basin recreation area and the Hazlett Hollow Campground.
