You are invited to a camp-out to one of my favorite places. We will be camping and kayaking and well fishing so grab your gear and let's get camping..

You will need a Tonto pass for every 24 hours you will be there,,,Please bring fire wood.

Apache Lake was formed in 1927 when the Horse Mesa Dam was completed. Outstanding trout and warm-water fishing. Wet winters bring a profusion of spring flowers. This lake is set among sun-painted canyon walls, which form scenic backdrops to the lake itself.

Upper Burnt Corral is located about 5.5 miles from Roosevelt Dam. We have camped on Lower Burnt Corral in the past however this location offers better beach front options and a soothing cove to launch at.

    I really had a great time at this weekend's camping trip!! I'm sure the group of fun and friendly people and the beautiful scenery/venue had something to do with it, as well as Marsha's total excitement over catching the big bass!!! Thanks to Kirk too for the exciting boat rides and exploration of Apache Lake!

    http://www.camparizona.com/camp... This is a great web site with info about where we will be camped.

    Also,, I cannot find the flag so just look for the flag awning and chair. I drive a light blue SUV and there will be a Boxer Dog running around. There will also be a sign that reads AOAG so you will know it is the group.

    Please do not forget you **TONTO PASSES** for each 24 hours you will be camped. You can get them at any markets in that areas before you get to the lake or online.

    If you have not made your donation to the group you can do so at this event.

  • Marsha

    I will be meeting some of you at the parking lot at the damn, there is a over look there at 9am. If you are coming up early and can be there around 9am let me know and we will wait for you there and guide you in. There is one porta-potty thing but it is always better to bring your own. You can get them at Walmart.

    See you up there

    PS, There is no cell service there so if you are having problems call Kathleen at[masked] and she will guide you in

    April 24, 2013

    • Jenny

      Don't think it was us because I don't think I've ever camped there. :) Anyways, sounds great! We're bringing some tubes & floaties to swim in the lake.

      April 25, 2013

  • Marsha

    Ok, I will be there early on Friday to get a great spot. I will have an American Flag awning and a big flag, Look for those. If I can get the spot at the far end of the cove I am going there. (Kathleen was camped there last year) So If the flag is not in the spot we used last year go farther down that dirt road and look for the flag. Please bring firewood.

    getting permanent contact lenses implanted in my eyes on Thursday so it might not be wise to go any where near a lake when you can't see.

    Just to let you know ... Dick's Sporting Goods have kayaks on sale this week.

    Potomac Pathfinder 100 Kayak and Potomac Vortex 80DLX Kayak are both $199.

    April 9, 2013

  • Daina

    Need clarification on location. It says Upper Burt corral but then says camp in at Lower Burnt Corral?? Also noticed that the last 20 miles of HWY 88 is dirt. Is this the best way to get up there or it is better to take Hwy 87 to HWY 188 . (which seem out of the way but might be faster and better roads)

  • Jolan

    I have not been on my kayak for a couple yrs. it's like a bicycle right? Looking forward too it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
