The actual campground is located in a pine forest with plenty of shady spots and large and open spaces to pitch your tent. Hiking and sightseeing are the most popular activities in the park. You are surrounded by lush forest with endless hiking trails and places to walk. If you are an advanced hiker, you can hike some trails on Mt. Lemmon as well. As far as amenities go, you will have access to protected picnic areas for eating and cookouts, fresh drinking water, trash cans, electricity, and vault toilets. There are no showers and no WiFi. You will find grills, food storage lockers, paved roads, security lights, and a campground host if you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance. Peek season is April to October.
You can bring your dog to camp with you, but there are no poop bags provided, so bring your own so you can clean up after your dog. You can discard your poop bags in one of the many trash cans located throughout the park and campground. Make sure to keep your dog on a leash since other campers with dogs are around and wildlife, like bears, live in the area as well.
Whitetail is a great camping spot if you want a place with tons of hiking, trails, and mountains to gaze upon while you camp. With so much natural beauty and dog-friendly activities, both you and your dog will love visiting!
