This destination paint out will encompass several different paint out sites in the cool and beautiful White Mountains of Arizona. Possibilities include the East Fork of the Black River, Big Lake, Greer, A1 Lake (pictured above), Greer Lake (Tunnel Reservoir), and more.
Your host will be staying in a travel trailer at Rolfe C. Hoyer Campground just outside of Greer. I will be there on Thursday the 16th in the evening. Reservations are available at https://www.recreation.gov/camping/hoyer/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=70471.
If you do not want to camp, lodging is available nearby in Greer, Eagar, and Springerville. Show Low is an hour away from the campground. Please, Google to find lodging that suits you. There are grocery stores, pharmacies, McDonald's, etc. in Springerville. Greer has some very popular restaurants.
We will have a BYOEverything cookout at my campsite on Saturday night, August 18th, and probably other nights as well.
Please, note: This is a high altitude area of 8,356 feet. The temperature range is 73/47 F and it rains. Plan accordingly.
Come for the weekend or spend a whole week. It's a beautiful, relaxing place.
From Show Low, Arizona, take Highway 260 southeast 42 miles to Highway 373. Take Highway 373 south 3 miles to the campground, which is on the right.
