We had the pleasure of meeting a family out here during our contract this past winter. They had an excellent site set up in Gold Canyon near Apache Junction where she was a travel nurse on contract. We stayed for two nights here and would definitely go back. There was plenty of space to spread out and the views at sunset were incredible.
A permit IS required and can be found HERE. It is $25/year for a family and you will need to print it and place it on your RV and in your Vehicles.
