Benny Creek Campground is located just north of Bunch Reservoir and is within walking distance. If you have trouble getting a campsite at the more popular Rolfe C. Hoyer campground this makes a great place to set up camp.

Fishing is excellent in the surrounding area. The "Greer Lakes" which include Bunch, River and Tunnel Reservoir are all well stocked with both rainbow and brown trout. The Little Colorado River creates all three lakes and is fishable both above and below the Greer Lakes.

Benny Creek reservations are for the group site only.

Behind the end loop of the campground is a small beaver pond if you want to show your kids some local wildlife. You can spot the beavers swimming around by the V wake in the water.

Nearby in Greer, you can grab a fantastic meal at Molly Butlers Lodge.

For a great drive, head out from the campground onto the 373 and head south (left, towards Greer) go past Rolfe Hoyer Campground and take your next right on FR87 which will take you on a nice scenic ride over to the 273 at which point you can turn left to go to Cresent, Lee Valley and Big Lake or turn right and go over to Sunrise Lake.
