Wild Cow Springs Campground is a small oak and ponderosa shaded campground high in the Hualapai Mountains southeast of Kingman, Arizona. The Hualapai Mountains are essentially a green oasis rising 6,300 feet out of the hot desert floor. With a significant temperature difference from the desert floor in the summer months, Wild Cow Springs is a popular summer camping destination. Hiking is fairly abundant in the area, with trails leading to Hualapai Peak and Wabayuma Peak.
The campground itself is fairly wide open, so you may hear and see neighboring campsites fairly easily. Wild Cow Springs Campground offers modest amenities, including picnic tables, fire rings, and access to vault toilets. High-clearance vehicles are recommended for accessing Wild Cow Springs Campground.
