Set within the cool mountain country near Payson, Ariz., the camp borders the Tonto National Forest, which provides the first two syllables of Tontozona. The state of Arizona offers the last pair.
Mountains skirt the camp with water, contributing much of the beauty to the area with clear-running Tonto Creek just a moment's walk from the practice field.
Three man-sized waterfalls and clear-bottom swimming holes serve as refreshers to the Sun Devils. Wildlife is another prominent specialty of Tontozona; deer roaming the surrounding country and hawks circling the morning and evening skies are not uncommon sights.
Just minutes away by car are other attractions such as the spectacular Mogollon Rim and its breathtaking view and countryside that provide a haven for campers, horseback riders, hikers and picnickers.
