Vault toilets, trashcans, and drinking water (in the individual camping area) are provided. While Moenkopi Road is paved, the roads throughout the campground are gravel.
Red Rock Canyon's unique geology with multicolored sandstone atop of gray limestone creates a unique environment with seasonal springs and streams. There are 54 year-round water sources in the Spring Mountains. It's also home to threatened desert tortoise and living cultural reminders of the pioneer past, wild burros and horses. The campground is in a quiet bowl near some of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the country, providing privacy with limited shade under the group picnic pavilion.
