Springs Campground was built by the CCC in 1934.
It is located 20 miles north of Cave Creek/Carefree on
Forest Route 24. The campground was being renovated when
I was there in 2005. There are 23 campsites with tables,
grills and water available during daylight hours via
a solar powered pump. The road can be a little bumpy,
but well worth the trip during the spring and fall. Water
flowing through seven springs is minimal and only several
inches in depth. Shade is plentiful with many sycamore
trees lining the valley floor and the campground.
There is a private ranch
just before you get to the campground with a warning sign
reminding you not to trespass.
During the rainy season,
be cautious of flash floods.
From Carefree, take Cave Creek
Road (FR) 24 for 20 miles north to Seven Springs. The
last 9 miles of FR 24 is an all weather gravel road. The
gravel portion of the road is narrow with blind curves.
