Perched at 8,500 feet in the two-million-acre Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, Greer is a classic mountain getaway.

Right Now

Think Arizona is all desert? Many visitors do. But Arizonans cherish the small towns of the White Mountains as a year-round destination. In summer, Greer is an escape from lower elevation temperatures. Wildflowers sprout in alpine meadows alive with native wildlife including antelope, deer, elk, turkey, and black bears. Autumn means burnished leaves and crisp temperatures. And winter transforms the town with snow and a visit from Santa during winter celebrations.

Recreational opportunities abound in every season. Water is a centerpiece of a trip to Greer: the clear waters of the Little Colorado River run right through town and three lakes offer sport fishing for trout. There’s also hiking, hunting, horseback riding, and skiing.

Accommodations include the oldest lodge in Arizona, the Molly Butler Lodge, rustic cabins, and camping. And don’t miss the winged beauties at the Butterfly Lodge Museum, nestled on a pine-studded knoll and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
