Overview – Groups are drawn to Grapevine Campground’s unique setting and expansive facilities. The site’s location near Roosevelt Lake’s shoreline and nestled in the Saguaro cactus-studded Sonoran Desert and facilities such as a boat ramp and event area provide a perfect setting for fishing tournaments, family reunions, and even weddings year-round.

Natural Features – At an elevation of 2,200 feet, each group site has stunning views of the blue water, the Sierra Ancha mountains, and sunsets against three mountainous wilderness areas.

Recreation – In addition to camping, Grapevine provides opportunities for boating, fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, and exploring peaceful coves from non-motorized watercraft. Additional activities include a playground for children, sports field, and a shoreline trail for hikers and mountain bikers.

Facilities – Nine group sites accommodate a wide range of facilities. Each group site includes flush toilets, water hydrants, and shelters with group-sized picnic tables, grills, and fire rings. The group sites also include individual camp units each with a fire ring/grill, picnic table, and parking. Additional facilities include showers, boat ramp with platform to assist individuals getting in boats, and an event area.

Nearby Attractions – Multiple opportunities for enjoying spectacular scenery and learning about the area’s pre-history, history, flora, fauna, or geology include visiting Tonto National Monument cliff dwellings (National Park Service), driving portions of the Apache Trail Historic Road (State Hwy 88) and Desert to Tall Pines Scenic Road (State Hwy 288) or visiting the Tonto Basin Visitor Center.
