Best Arizona Campgrounds to Visit this Summer

Arizona is a beautiful state, and there are tons of campgrounds where you’ll discover things you never expected. Whether you’re an Arizona native or you’re just visiting, here are some of the best Arizona campgrounds to check out this summer!

One campground is Bear Canyon Campground, which is located on Bear Canyon Lake and surrounded by trees for a secluded experience. If you’re looking for a spot on the water, another option is Hilltop Campground, which is on Lynx Lake in the Prescott National Forest.

The Dairy Springs Campground in Coconino National Forest is near Lake Mormon and is teeming with plenty of gorgeous hiking trails. Coconino is actually home to quite a few beautiful campgrounds, like Pine Flat Campground near Oak Creek and Manzanita Campground.

Christopher Creek Campground in Tonto National Forest is on a first-come first-serve basis and is located on the Mogollon Rim. If you want to stay at the Grand Canyon for a while instead of just taking a day trip, camp overnight in Grand Canyon National Park at the Desert View Campground, which has 50 available sites.

How to Prepare Your Car for Summer

Summer is right around the corner and that means it’s time to prepare for the heat! Keeping your car in top condition for the season doesn’t take much work provided that you prepare. If your car has any problems, they’re likely to grow in summer due to the heat. Here’s how to prepare your car for summer from us here at Quebedeaux Mitsubishi!

  • Oil – If you drive often, odds are you already change your oil. While you should follow the schedule in your owner’s manual, getting an extra oil change for summer isn’t a bad idea in the slightest. If you plan on taking long trips or towing a trailer, an oil change beforehand is highly recommended.
  • Tires – Summer tires can go a long way when it comes to hot roads. Designed to provide better handling and increased fuel economy, switching your set could be beneficial if you plan on driving a lot. Either way, examine your tires for tread wear, uneven wear, and proper alignment!
  • Battery – Now that the spring rains and winter freezes have come and gone, it’s time to give your battery some attention. Pop the hood and scrape away any corrosion, tighten the connections, and have a professional check to see if your charge is weak.
