Recreation on Mount Graham

Mount Graham provides visitors a wealth of activity, from sight seeing to more strenuous activities such as hiking, rock climbing, and cross country skiing. There is something for all at this popular retreat. Trout fishing at Riggs Flat Lake is a popular summer pastime, and several of the year-round creeks offer the challenge of stream fishing. Big game (bear and deer) hunting is available, in season. The mountain is the home of the densest concentration of Black Bears in the Southwest.

The Graham County Chamber of Commerce and U.S. Forest Service can provide you with more information. The Columbine Visitors Information Center, operated by the U.S. Forest Service, also offers more information, including scrapbooks with pictures of the activities on Mt. Graham, including the old sawmill camps.

For those of the visiting public that may enjoy camping, below we have provided a link to a camp ground guide, courtesy of the U.S. Forest Service, Coronado National Forest. There are six campgrounds in our vicinity listed under the city of Safford:
