2012 Best Campgrounds for Stargazing
In no particular order
Alamo Lake (Saguaro Lake)
Alamo Lake State Park is one of Arizona's best kept secrets. The stark desert beauty is reflected off the water. Cacti dot the mountainous landscape that surround the lake. Nestled in the Bill Williams River Valley away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Alamo Lake State Park offers outdoor fun, premier bass fishing, rest and relaxation. For nature lovers, spring rains bring an abundance of wild flowers and the lake environment attracts a variety of wildlife year round, including bald and golden eagles, waterfowl, foxes, coyotes, mule deer and wild burros. Stargazers are sure to enjoy the unbelievable view of the night sky with the nearest city lights some forty miles away!
Toroweap Point (Grand Canyon)

Point Campground is just for you. This might be
one of the most secluded campgrounds in the country. Toroweap

of Fredonia. Just being secluded isn't the reason you come
to Toroweap Point, it is the views!
Primitive Campground at Mitten View (Northeat Arizona)
