Buffalo Crossing Campground

Apache-sitgreaves National Forest, Po Box 640, AZ 85920

At the southern end of the East Fork canyon is Buffalo Crossing Campground, an old Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) era site which actually boasts the largest campsites along the river. This campground can accommodate larger recreation vehicles. The East Fork meanders through the forested valley shaded by tall ponderosa pines and bordered by grasses, alders, and streamside hardwoods. Campsites are located a few steps from the stream to protect the Black River’s unique riparian zone, but access to the river is easy as the undergrowth serves more to enhance the river’s picturesque nature than to obstruct easy passage.
