Horse Springs Campground is the largest campground on the East Fork of the Black River. With recently upgraded facilities, including a group ramada and a picnic area, this makes for a real nice camping experience.

The campground is just a few steps away from the river.

Fishing the East Fork definitely has its rewards. An 11 pound 7 ounce rainbow trout was taken in the summer of 2003 just above Aspen Campground. Most of the East Fork of the Black River is fishable, and this is very much fly fishing heaven in Arizona. Rainbow trout are regularly stocked at several locations along the river starting in spring and continuing through the summer months.

Wildlife is predominate in the area, Bighorn sheep, waterfowl, bears and elk can be seen in the surrounding area regularly, so make sure you pack everything up at night to avoid any confrontations.
