Both a volunteer host and a volunteer custodian are on duty to assist visitors to the horse campground. The horse campground is quite spacious and suitable for even the largest RVs.

The town’s mile-high location in the Grand Canyon State’s central highlands brings four mild seasons, an average annual daytime temperature of about seventy degrees, and over 300 days of sunshine.
