KP Cienega Campground – White Mountains

KP Cienega Campground
Camp Arizona - KP Cienega Campground

KP Cienega Campground turnoff is located 4.6 miles south of Hannagan Campground on scenic U.S. route 191. A small campground with only 5 units, KP is next to the small KP Creek which holds some small trout. KP Creek begins in a nearby spring and flows through the wonderfully green meadow that the campground sits in.

There are several hiking trails in the surrounding mountains and some that lead into the Bear Wallow Wilderness and the Blue River Canyon in the Blue Primitive Area.

There is a restaurant and country store with very limited supplies in Hannagan Meadows. The next closest services are in Alpine. The vault style restrooms are handicap accessible.

4WD vehicles can try out the roads 1.6 miles south from the campsite. For 175 mile views, check out the Blue Vista View point area 1.5 miles to the south of the KP turnoff. You can see as far south as Mount Graham 70 miles away as the crow flies or Humphrey’s Peaks 175 miles away.


From Alpine travel south on U.S. route 191 27 miles to the turnoff then 1.3 miles to the campground.
