Cave Springs Campground is the largest and one of the most popular campgrounds along Oak Creek in Arizona. The campground is also located the furthest from the busy road running through the canyon, which makes it a bit more relaxing compared to nearby Pine Flat Campground. It is surrounded by the high canyon walls, ponderosa pines and other trees like cottonwoods and sycamores.

There are 84 campsites at Cave Springs Campground with a fire ring and picnic table, including a single tent-only campsite. Drinking water and coin-operated showers are available onsite as well. The campground is open spring through fall.

What To Do

Hiking  – There are a few trails near the campground for exploring Oak Creek Canyon.

Slide Rock State Park  – This natural water park is just up the road and is a great place to cool off in the summer. Be prepared for crowds though in the summer.

Grasshopper Point – This is a great alternative to Slide Rock for playing in the water. Located about 9 miles south of Cave Springs, it is a more relaxing swimming spot with hiking trails along the creek.
