There are frequently park rangers on Camelback, especially during peak season (Oct-Mar) when parking moderation is required.  Through our experience we have witnessed every rule broken, sometimes causing safety issues.  Thank you for keeping these rules in mind when visiting Camelback.  These rules are designed for the safety and enjoyment for all visitors and residents of the surrounding areas.
