“Wonderful and free National Forest dry camping. Quiet and full of wildlife.”

Reviewed Jan 10, 2019

Overall Rating

Semi-rough dirt road, but okay for any vehicle. Close to Flagstaff with lots of sites, some in the forest and others in the open. There was very light OHV traffic while we were there; and hardly anyone else around. We stayed May 2018 and the area was clean. 3 bars Verizon LTE and we stayed in an open area for solar power. We dum... more

Washboard road. Drove about 2 miles before hitting really rough road that turned me around. Couldn't find a suitable spot. Did pull in a very small site right on the road and in the sun. Sat for about 5 minutes before deciding not for me. So I moved on elsewhere. Looks like many of the campers had taken up root here. It's a maybe for m... more

“Too popular.”

Reviewed Sep 29, 2018

Overall Rating

Late September and the place is packed. Nice area though except for the constant rumbling of trains. Getting away from the main road with a larger RV is challenging, lots of spots for small rigs and car campers. Lots of household like garbage near our site (bags of diapers, old clothes, etc).

“Peaceful ”

Reviewed Sep 02, 2018

Overall Rating

2 miles past the cattle gate, and past the tent camper, we found a very peaceful spot far from anyone. There are a lot of pull in spots with fire rings near the main dirt road. If you take a left at the second fork you can go further into the forest. Cell service is good until you make the left turn but the serenity is well worth it. ... more

“Great Forest close to Flagstaff”

Reviewed May 03, 2018

Overall Rating

We were pleased to find this spot within the Forest with T-Mobile service! Close to the city. You are high in elevation, so it can be cold at night. It was below freezing Mid-April. You go on the road and pass a large area with possibly a lot of people, go further. There's plenty of space along the road with nice views. We didn't s... more
