Sunrise Resorts' White Mountain
Nestled in the beautiful serenity of the White Mountains, Sunrise White Mountain has a variety of scenarios for its guests. This peaceful retreat offers hours of enjoyment in the seclusion of the cool mountain air, at nearby mountain lakes for fishing, on miles of adjacent hiking trails, watching the abundant wildlife, and sightseeing at the many nearby attractions. For year-round entertainment, plan to visit Pinetop-Lakeside, on the edge of the White Mountain Apache Reservation, southeast of Show Low. Because of the elevation, the area is cool in summer for trout fishing, picnicking, and other outdoor activities. In winter, enjoy ice fishing, as well as snowmobiling and skiing on the 100 trails on three mountains. Either season you can visit Hon-Dah Casino, where slot machines, video poker, and keno are offered.
Amenities This campground offers a clubhouse, laundry room, bird-watching areas and wildlife areas, hiking, horseshoes, bingo, Pekeno, and pool table. Dump station.

More Info Follow the Apache Trail (SR 88) 29 miles northwest of Globe, to the Theodore Roosevelt Dam and Lake. The world’s highest all-masonry dam was built with thousands of hand-hewn stones and completed in 1910. To the east of Globe is the Coolidge Dam that creates San Carlos Lake and impounds the waters that irrigate the Casa Grande Valley. Currently under renovation, the multiple dome dam is 250 feet high and 880 feet long at the top. Original construction of the dam was delayed until it was agreed that a concrete slab would cover the Apache Indian burial grounds, thus leaving their tribal cemetery undisturbed. Just north of Coolidge Dam is San Carlos, a trading center and headquarters for the San Carlos Indian Agency. One of the largest cattle ranches in this area is operated by the Apaches. Some of the best trophy-hunting and fishing in the state is on this reservation.
