The mountain is covered with huge pine trees! Just outside of Kingman, Arizona (Kingman still is the largest producer of turquoise), we drive up about 6,000 feet to enjoy the beautiful scenery and clear air!
There are 16 cabins - all made of stone; built in the 1930's. The place looks pretty much like a tiny Yosemite.
The best time to go for rates is Sunday through Thursday - from $45 to $110 for a 4-day stay.
There are r.v. campsites and tent campsites; the r.v. sites rent for $12/night, and the tent sites for $7/night.
The name Hualapai comes for the Native-American tribe that once inhabited the area and it translates to 'Pine-tree folk'.
In 1932, members of the park built 3,470 fire towers; 97,000 miles of roads and planted more than three billion trees!
There are 70 campsites - only 11 r.v. spots, so we have to call 'ahead' and book early. The number that's in our address book is: 877-757-0915.
There are 16 miles of trails - spectacular views!
The Day Use fee is $5 - sometimes we just drive up early in the morning, and come back as dusk falls.
A great place for a family reunion!
Highway 68 to Kingman then I-40; exit 51 and Stockton Hill Road, South gets us there. We travel about 15 miles on Stockton Hill Road to reach our destination - a favorite and beautiful place indeed!
Each year in August (around the 18th - for 2 or 3 days), they hold a MOUNTAIN LODGE ARTS AND CRAFTS FAIR - we find authentic art; crafts, photography, newelry - hand-made items by the Indians. There's always an abundant supply of great food.
