Cutthroat Campground Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest Arizona

Cutthroat Overview

Cutthroat 010

Cutthroat Campground has 18 tent-only/walk-to campsites and is located among large ponderosa pines next to Big Lake. The sites are pretty well scattered and have some nice space between other campsites. All have parking spots and some of the parking areas are located just off the road (vs. within the campground).

Campground amenities include drinking water and flush toilets.  An RV dump station is about a mile away and a boat ramp is also nearby. Each campsite also has a table fire ring and grate.
