There is also a restaurant/1880's saloon. Kids can be there until about 10p.m. The actual campsite is about seven miles out of town. They're very sturdy lean two's with a fire pit in front to keep out the evening chill. All campsites are within walking distance from one another so visiting your neighbor to  talk about the days events is no big deal.

This year we will be running the 400 miler backwards so that we can enjoy the Hot Springs. check it out http://www.trails.com/tcatalog_trail.aspx?trailid=XFA022-026 we will be camping at the Verde river campgrounds. In the past the AVC stopped camping at the hot springs because of some nudity at the Hot Springs, But I understand that the forest Service has really cleaned up the place and put a stop to the nudity..
