Apache Junction to Tortilla Flats.

Anyone driven this in a 40 ft Class A? I've gone up there in my mother's Buick and there are a lot of hairpin curves, but would love to camp by the lake. Just not sure a big rig would make it. (I honestly dont remember seeing any up at the campgrounds)

Yes, a 40' MH could make the drive to Tortilla Flats but absolutely no further and the pavement runs out and the Apache Trail gets narrower and more rugged. There a place to camp before you get there but make sure they have space for you beforehand. I'm not sure of the name offhand. Another option is staying at Lost Dutchman State Park and doing day trips to the lakes. It's a beautiful park with big rig sites. It's VERY HOT in that area right now. When are you planning?

I have been there in my pickup but there would be no way I would drive it with a 40' with a toad. We were headed there following a 1/2 ton pickup towing about a 30' tag behind and he was having one heck of a time on some of the curve that look like your elbow bent up as far as it goes. We spend Dec. January, February to there a go there frequently. If you take Apache Trail I would recommend going from south to north this way you are on the inside next to mountain. Going north to south is quite scary especially if you meet another vehicle on the grade at Fish Creek. Don't ask me how I know

I've also been there and no way I'd drive my coach up there. Just get a nice campsite near Apache Junction and drive your toad all around that fabulous road for a day's ride right up to the dam and come back by the alternate route.
That is a beautyfull country to visit nice and slowly in a toad...
