Sunrise was nothing more than a dirt lot on the side of the road with electrical hook-up, so we passed and ended up at Horseshoe Lake on the White Mtn. Apache Reservation. You need a permit from the tribe for $8 per day and they did come around and check ours! $500 fine if you don't have.

We found several spots on loop 8 with pump water on site. We landed this great spot in the aspen trees with a partial view of the lake!




Our pups loved Horseshoe Lake!



We then headed to Woods Canyon Lake on the way back down to phx and stayed here in spot 81 in Aspen Campground.

Looks great, Shawn and Tiffany. How were the temps? Can't wait to get up on the Rim on the 4th of July weekend.

The Rim seemed a little warmer into the high 80's than the White Mtns but it was very nice at both. The nights were very cool probably into the low 50's. Nice enough that we could have the windows open and sleep under the covers. The daytime in the AS were a little warm unless you had every window open and the fans going. It was cooler outside on the tables than interior of the AS.

Temps:

We just got home today from a 9-day trip that included 3 nights at Luna Lake just west of Alpine (7960 feet)... nice campground, dry camping, with water available, a little dusty and a bit far from the lake, but nice anyway ... lots of fishermen/women...quiet...mid 80s during the day, mid 40s at night...

From there we went to Big Lake (9100 feet) and stayed in Rainbow Campground for 3 nights...mid-70s in the days and low 40s at night...great dry camping campground, paved roads and pads, dense woods of aspen and several types of pine, and a big fishing destination. After we left we heard they had some lightning strikes...

Then three nights at Rolfe C. Hoyer Campground near Greer (8300 feet), dry camping, campground refurbished in 2009 (no functioning dump station yet, but nicely done)...high 70s during the days, mid 40s at night...very nice time... it rained early monsoons 2 days in the early afternoon then cleared up...nice. (Glad you commented on Sunrise, NicheVintage...doesn't sound good at all...)

We passed by Horseshoe Lake but we needed to get home...next time...it looks nice from the pics above!

Thanks for the more detailed info, especially Big Lake. We will probably get up there sometime this summer. I wish I had a month to spend a week at Big Lake, a week at Hoyer, a week at Winn and a week around Alpine.
