Canyon Point lies in a forested area above the Mogollon Rim at an elevation of 7,500 ft. The Mogollon Rim, pronounced by locals as "muggy-own," is a 200-mile long escarpment in northern Arizona that ranges between 5,000 and 7,000 ft in elevation. The unique landscape was created by the uplift of the Colorado Plateau followed by erosion and faulting that has sculpted spectacular canyons and buttes. The rim serves as the geographical divide between the cool high country above and the hot, dry desert below. Summer daytime temperatures are generally 20 - 40 degrees cooler than the greater Phoenix Area. However, the rainy season often brings afternoon thunderstorms from late June through August. Visitors should come prepared for possible rain and cool nighttime temperatures.
Hikers enjoy staying at Canyon Point because of its access to trails to the Sinkhole and the edge of the Mogollon Rim, which offers a spectacular view. Its proximity to Willow Springs Lake also draws boaters and anglers. Families who stay on the weekends often attend educational programs given by Forest Service rangers at the facility's amphitheater.
Take Highway 260 east from Payson toward Heber. The campground is located at milepost 287 on State Highway 260 approximately 4.5 miles east of the Rim Visitor Information Station, and 20 miles west of Heber.
