Stockton Pass is a great place to camp out for groups traveling through Arizona's Pinal Mountains. The site is located up in the high desert, offering all visitors some spectacular views of the surrounding mountain peaks. You are allowed to bring up to 110 of your closest friends and family when you stay at this group site -- and all of the Fidos and Fifis, too!
This site is an excellent place to crash if you are with a group that loves to get out into nature. Nearby, you will find many different hiking trails where both people and pooches can observe the amazing sights and smells that this part of Arizona has to offer. Remember, there are bears here, so you'll want to keep your doggo close to you at all times. The site provides bear-proof trash cans to help prevent an unwanted encounter during your stay.
Most types of campers can be accommodated at Stockton Pass, as long as they are fewer than 22 feet in length. No hookups or drinking water are provided, so be prepared to rough it a little bit throughout your stay here, and please come prepared with lots of water! Amenities provided include campfire rings (equipped with grills), picnic tables, and pedestal grills -- all to help dining al fresco be as easy as possible.
Nowhere is it posted that dogs need to be on-leash, but as there is potentially dangerous wildlife nearby as well as some walk-in sites close to the group site, it may be a good idea to bring a leash along, and only let your pooch off if they are excellent with voice commands. Be sure to bring a stash of poop bags with you to make cleaning up your fur-baby's waste a mess-free experience. Also, please keep in mind that this is the desert and the area can be prone to extreme conditions. Make sure your doggo always has plenty of water and a safe place to lie down.
