Located north of Phoenix, this 2,922-acre park sits in the upper Sonoran Desert. Ranging in elevation from 2,000 feet to 3,060, this desert oasis provides any hiker and equestrian majestic views. The Go John Trail loops around a mountain to provide the illusion of being miles away from civilization. In the 1870s, fever stricken gold seekers staked their dreams on the jasper-studded hills. Guided trails to these sites give visitors an opportunity to travel back in time.

Cave Creek Regional Park offers a campground with 38 individual sites and a group camping area. Each site has a large parking area to accommodate up to a 45' RV and is a "Developed Site," with water and electrical hook-ups, dump station, a picnic table, a barbecue grill, and fire ring. Cave Creek Regional Park provides immaculate restrooms with flush toilets and hot water showers. All sites in the campground are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Large groups can reserve the Cave Creek Regional Park Group Campground. The Group Campground is a 2-acre parking area that offers a restroom with flush toilets and hot showers, ramadas with picnic tables, a fire ring and an activity area. The Group Campground can be reserved for a fee and requires a commitment of six units to utilize that facility for dry camping.

Cave Creek Regional Park offers over 11 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Park trails range in length from 0.2 miles to 5.8 miles and range in difficulty from easy to difficult.

If you are looking for an easy, relatively short hike the Slate Trail is recommended. If you are looking for a longer, more difficult hike, try the 5.8-mile Go John Trail.

The trails within the Cave Creek Regional Park are very popular, with dramatic elevations and spectacular views of the surrounding plains.

All trails are multi-use unless otherwise designated. All trail users are encouraged to practice proper trail etiquette.

Always remember to carry plenty of water and let someone know where you are going.

The Maricopa County Parks offer visitors the opportunity for star gazing throughout our park system. We even provide the telescope. You will view and learn about the moon, the planets, deep space objects like star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. Bring your own chairs and snacks. The whole family will enjoy the program. No pets allowed. These programs are conducted by Tony La Conte of Stargazing For Everyone. The cost for the program is only the $6 per vehicle park entry fee.

For more information on specific dates, times, and parks offering these programs, visit our calendar and Stargazing for Everyone's Event Page.

Directions

From central Phoenix, take I-17 north to Carefree Hwy (SR 74). Exit Carefree Hwy. and travel east to 32nd St. (7 miles). Turn north on 32nd St. to the Cave Creek Regional Park entrance.
