Sedona AZ Camping Suggestions

Hello,
Looking for Sedona area Camp Ground suggestions for Mid March.

We have a 27 DSRL White Hawk... Prefer State / Federal Locations to commercial. But open to all suggestions.

Thanks much!

If you don't mind staying about 30 minutes from Sedona I'd recommend Dead Horse Ranch State Park. Beautiful there!

I second Dead Horse. Sedona is extremely crowded and getting through the traffic and round-abouts is not fun in a car, mush less a rig.

I am an hour south in Prescott. There are a lot of nice places near Sedona. Dead Horse is real nice, Zane Grey in Camp Verde is a nice spot. Williams has 3 or 4 RV places.

If you do stay in the Sedona area, I would surely avoid the Rancho Sedona RV Park. They have a list of rules that make catholic school seem lax.. one of them is during quiet hours, you have to be in your rig.. no sitting outside enjoying a book or a drink or the stars.

-"QUIET TIME is 10:00PM to 7:00AM, you must be INSIDE your rig so not to disturb your neighbors."

I have been at most of the sites between here and the Grand Canyon.. hit me back if you want some input.

Just pulled this off their site:

"Sewer hoses CANNOT lie on the ground, even just to dry, unless you are dumping. You must unhook and put your sewer hose away as soon as you have completed dumping. (Mandated by the Health Dept)".

Must be a place where the local gov't feels they have to control everything.

Hello,


Just FYI.. we decided on Dead Horse Ranch.. after looking at the numerous "private" options, I was left unimpressed with the restrictive policies that were referenced above, and appear to be quite common across the board.


Thanks again for the inputs!

As long as you are in the area check out Prescott and White Spar State Park. Can reserve on line, check the weather Prescott is near 6000' can snow there!We have been camping in Prescott since the 1990s. Thanks

DW and I have been vacationing in Arizona over twenty years now. We've seen a few not-so-nice private RV parks, but never a disappointing state or national one. We're going back again next month. Incredibly beautiful state, where the geography seems to change every fifty miles.

And thank you for your service, sir.

Yes, grew up in AZ, spent another 30yrs in NM. AZ, UT, CO and NM all have amazing scenery, from low desert to spectacular canyons and you can even get above the timberline. From 80 deg in Phoenix to below freezing in the White Mountains in just a couple of hours driving. Hot and sunny to several feet of snow.

If you visit from the 'low country' be prepared to acclimate yourself if in the mountains. We lived at 6700ft outside of Albuquerque.

So many areas to camp. Like others have said, private CG's are hit and miss. There are some really nice tiny ones, eg, a place in Alpine, AZ had cabins for rent and about 10 RV spots. Really nice couple ran it until a few years ago, now a bit run down.

Winter season in many of the lower areas of AZ get flooded with snowbirds so make your plans accordingly. Sedona is a HUGE tourist spot. Watched it change from a nice quaint little town (1960's) to the mess it is today. FWIW, we used to tent camp along Oak Creek for many summers when I was a kid.

Cottonwood and Prescott are much nicer places to stay.
