 Events for White Tank Mtn 
<September 2015>

5/26/2015 - Extended due to dry conditions. Please check back after Labor Day for updates.
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park. If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

White Tank Mountain Regional Park offers 240 picnic tables with grills, 80 of which have a small cover.

Eleven Group Picnic Sites are available for large groups. These ramadas can be reserved for a fee in four-hour increments. If not marked as reserved, they are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Area 3 - located near the White Tank Visitor Center. Two, four-table ramadas, three large barbeque grills, an activity court, a fire ring, restroom facilities, and parking for approximately 20 vehicles.

Area 4 - located across the Black Rock Loop Trailhead. Six, four-table ramadas, seven grills, three activity courts, three fire rings, a playground, and restroom facilities.

Area 7 - located at the Waddell/Mesquite Trailhead. This area is great for weddings or receptions because of the beautiful mountain backdrop and desert landscaping. Area 7 also offers an Amphitheater with four benches. Three, two-table ramadas, six grills, one fire ring, and restroom facilities.
