The campground is owned by the City of Show Low and is run by a concessionaire. It has both no hookup spots and electric spots. I was there during February in a no hook up site and paid $18 a night which is the lowest rate. Rates are higher for pull thru and electric. Since it is owned by the city, there are no US Govt card discounts or any other discounts and the rates are the same all year. Show Low is snow country in the winter and so what is special is this campground is open all year. It is right across from the Lake and has good cell service. Providers are Verizon and Cellular One which may roam for ATT, depending on the ATT plan. It is very busy in the summer and spots are close but it is dead in the winter. All water facilities are shut off in the winter so that leaves one pit toilet, no tap water and no dump station and there is no reduction in fees. I was in the main campground by the office. The other areas were closed for the season. My travel trailer is 25 ft and it would fit in most if not all of the sites in my area. There are trees making it tricky to get solar for the whole day. The big pluses are the winter season, close to the lake and right in the Town of Show Low. The negatives are the cost for so little facilities in the winter and not really a backwoods experience. We camped at Show Low Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Trout fishing in Show Low Lake across the street. Come in the back way by turning off highway 260 at the Home Depot. It is a lot easier than the turnoff closer to Pinetop.

Nice campground that's similar to a forest service campground. 8 electric sites. Sites were not level but we had no problems leveling out. We were in site # 31 with electric. We were able to get our dome satellite in and we had a decent cell and air card signal. A fire ring with a grate and a pedestal BBQ along with a nice picnic table is provided. Campground is open year round taking reservations during their high season. We arrived mid Oct. and the sites were first come. Discounts are given with the Golden Age Pass that you can purchase at a Rangers Station. We paid $15.00 because we used our pass otherwise an electric site is $26 a night. Dump station available and potable water is available near the restrooms. Play ground is fenced in and next to the campground office/store. Lake is across the road with a boat dock but people were using it to fish off of. Stores are close by with lots of restaurants to choose from. We camped at Show Low Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

We've been coming here once or twice every year for 6 years. It is still as nice as ever in terms of facilities, service, and atmosphere. They have instituted a reservation policy so beware. If you don't have a reservation you might have to jump sites in the middle of a stay. We were here early in the year, and the CG was not crowded, but some other campers had to move in the middle of their stay. We camped at Show Low Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

About a mile south of town, this park has some sites with 30 amp power, but none with water or sewer. There is a dump station and central water source. Interior roads are brand new gravel--it hadn't packed down yet when we were there, so our heavy RV created some ruts. Some of the roads can't be navigated by a big rig, and probably only a quarter of the sites are large enough for a large RV. They are mostly back-ins. The sites are generally quite large, but the relatively narrow roads make it difficult to turn a large RV into them. Each site has a picnic bench, fire ring, and barbecue. There are different rates for pull-throughs, lakeside sites, and electric sites. Our rate reflected the federal Senior Pass rate for an electric site. The rates are spelled out on their web site. The handful of lakeside sites are across the road from the vast majority of the sites, and they are all quite small. At 6,600' the weather is pleasantly cool here when it is blistering in Phoenix. There are warnings about bears. There are many mature trees, screening some sites from one another. There is a boat launch. Excellent Verizon voice and data signal. It's easy to find a spot for a satellite dish, and the trees are short enough that a roof-top dish will work in most sites. We were the only visitors in the park one of the two days we spent there. We would definitely stay there again in the off season, when the sites big enough for us are available. We camped at Show Low Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
