Table Mesa Recreation Area

Sunday, July 10, 2016

Alt Names

Little Pan Campground, Hassayampa Field Office, Cottonwood Gulch, Moore Gulch, Little Squaw Creek, Agua Fria River, Black Canyon Trail System

Last Known StatusOpen

Located north of Phoenix, Arizona, this large area offers about 55 miles of trails. The Little Pan Staging Area offers plenty of level parking, spacious room for primitive camping and a vault toliet but no water or shade so come prepared. The main staging area also has a small ATV warmup loop designed for beginners.

There is no fee charged for camping but machines must display a current AZOHV decal. Future plans include adding more single track trails for dirt bikes.

The area also offers many miles of non-motorized use trails which are popular with mountain bike and horseback riders.
