White Spar Campground

White Spar Campground

White Spar Campground is medium-sized pine covered campground just outside the town of Prescott in the National Forest. White Spar’s proximity to downtown Prescott is one of the things that makes this campground very popular in the peak summer camping season. The surrounding Bradshaw Mountains also offer up some good day hikes.

With 57 campsites for tent and RV camping, White Spar is a small-medium sized campground. Some of the spots are closer to their neighbors than others. Each campsite has a fire ring, picnic table, and access to drinking water and vault toilets. Most of the campsites here have parking big enough to accommodate an RV and a couple vehicles. Supplies and services are located a few miles away in Prescott.

While the campground is open year round, only 12 campsites are open in the winter. Water is also not available in the winter season.
