    right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The beautiful scenery
of Coconino/ Navajo County and the water flowing gracefully down Chevelon Creek attract people from near and far.
