Horseshoe Reservoir Campground is just south of Horseshoe Reservoir 23 miles north east of the town of Carefree. The campground is well shaded by mesquite trees. The main attractions are fishing and boating. The reservoir is a major source of water for valley residents. The fluctuation of water can be so much that SRP often runs the reservoir empty during the summer months. When there is enough water, the Ocotillo Boating area provides a boat launch for smaller boats.

Horseshoe is a first come first served campground. There are no fee's to camp or day use at this campground.

Directions

This site is 23 miles northeast of Carefree. From Carefree, take Cave Creek Road for 7 miles to Forest Road (FR) 205. Turn right on FR 205 and travel for 6 miles to the junction of FR 205 and FR 19. At this junction, FR 205 turns left and becomes a maintained unpaved road. Follow FR 205 for 10 miles towards Horseshoe Reservoir. At the junction of FR 205 and FR 205A, turn right and travel an additional ½ mile to the site.
