If you’re looking to book an RV in Navajo County or the White Mountains of Arizona, you can’t do much better than Show Low Lake Campground. About two hours' drive from Flagstaff and three hours from Phoenix, it’s an excellent vacation destination for those wanting to escape the urban regions of the Grand Canyon State. At an elevation of 6,500 feet above sea level, Show Low has consistently lower temperatures compared to the rest of Arizona and even gets the occasional snowstorm.
Show Low’s odd name is said to have come from a card game that took place in 1876. At the time, the area was just a large ranch with two co-owners, who felt that it wasn’t big enough for the two of them. To settle the dispute, the co-owners played a game of “Seven Up;” to get the ranch, the winner had to "show low," which he did with a deuce of clubs (now the name of the main street running through town).
Show Low Lake Campground offers Lakeside campers electrical hookups at some sites, and there's a communal dump station should you need to empty the tanks on your RV rental. There are also showers, picnic tables, a playground, and a small convenience store that you can make use of if you don’t want to drive the five miles into Show Low.
You won’t need to travel far for outdoor recreation when you get a camper rental near Show Low Lake Campground. The campground’s namesake lake is a haven for anglers, swimmers, and paddlers. Boat rentals are available in town if you don’t have one of your own, and there are a few hiking trails on its edges if you don't feel like getting out on the water.
For an easy day hike, try the Show Low Bluff Trail just outside of town. The one-mile-long, out-and-back hike branches off of South White Mountain Road and has very little elevation gain, making it suitable for all fitness levels and those who don’t have a whole lot of time.
If you’re hoping to hit the links while camping with an RV, Show Low is the place to be. With three golf courses nearby, you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to getting your 18 holes in. If disc golf is more your game, there’s a course just off the main road.
While there are RV campgrounds that are closer, if you want to avoid the crowds (and sleep in a pleasant climate), staying at a Show Low campground is your best option when visiting Petrified Forest National Park. In the heyday of Route 66, Petrified Forest was one of the most popular national parks (though a national monument at the time), but it sees far fewer today, making it an excellent spot for off-the-beaten-path motorhome camping adventures. You can easily explore the whole park in a day on its one main road, but if you’re up for some unusual backcountry hiking, there are a few trails that branch off into the otherworldly badlands.
Show Low is a great little town to explore, with lots of independent shops along its main street and a good selection of restaurants (and, of course, delicious Mexican cuisine, as this is Arizona). If you need to fuel up the rental RV, your best bet for service stations will be along Highway 66, also known as Deuce of Clubs when it runs through Show Low.
To get a sense of Show Low’s past, check out the Show Low Museum near the center of town. It’s a fairly small museum, but it’s packed with interesting artifacts and exhibits to tell the story of how Show Low went from being a massive ranch back in the late 1800s to the tourist town that it is today. It’s also home to the Silver Creek model railroad club, which has a rather impressive display set up inside the museum.
For a fun or romantic night out when you camp in an RV near Show Low, head over to the Apache-Sitgreaves Observatory in Overgaard. This part of Arizona is known for its especially dark skies and an evening with the telescope is sure to be an experience to remember. If you’re not the best at finding constellations or the Milky Way, the observatory staff will set up the telescope to take all the guesswork out of it.
Not far from there is the Rock House Museum, which makes for a great daytime activity when you’re visiting the observatory. Built in the 1940s, the house is intended to be a time capsule of the World War II era. Tours are typically by appointment, so it’s best to plan ahead if you’re thinking about visiting.
