Cave Creek Regional Park is another link in the chain of excellent campgrounds in the Maricopa County park system. A bit smaller than the campgrounds at Usery Mountain and McDowell Mountain parks, it nonetheless offers most of the same amenities and quality level of the campsites.

Set out along a complex set of loop roads, the sites are large, with lots of space for parking and a good distance between most sites. There is some privacy due to the spacing between the sites and the sparse vegetation. The desert setting is spectacular. In addition to the regular loops, there is a section of the campground with 13 sites in an open area which also includes the picnic ramadas. This area is known as "The Village." These sites are not as private as the others, but it's a great area for groups who want multiple campsites together. All of the park’s sites have water and electric hookups, there are showers in all the restrooms, and there are two horse corrals for use by campers. The Clay Mine Trail leaves right from the campground and leads to other trails in the park's network.
