Fisherman’s Point Camping

Known for its rocky cliffs, Fisherman’s Point offers a few good places for camping. You’ll need a 4WD vehicle to get here because there are soft places along the road, and especially so if there’s rain.

At the end of Fisherman’s Point road is a turnaround on the top of a hill that offers spectacular views of the area. You can camp here because hardly anyone comes here.

Camping at Fisherman’s Point offers lots of quiet and views of wildlife and flora. You can enjoy the sounds of water trickling along the Gila River. There’s plenty of hiking along the riverbank.
