“Excellent OHV riding!”

Reviewed Oct 17, 2017

Overall Rating

Camping, hunting, hiking, and riding are all enjoyed here. There are all kinds of places to camp, some with easy access and some with rough roads. Check out Kaibab National Forest website for all rules. Get an OHV trail map from the Williams Visitor Center. Town is just 10 miles away from dry camping, and has great food, shops, and atmosphere. Close to the Grand Canyon.

Bill Williams Loop Road is one of many places in the Kaibab and Prescott National Forests, that you can camp and ride. The Arizona Forestry department does an excellent job of maintaining and labeling the trails. We spent two weeks, drove over 600 miles of trails, and still have so much more to see.

The forest is beautiful, and is "cleaned". You can collect wood for your fire. All designated camping areas have rock fire pits and cleared ground. It can get muddy when it rains, so know your exit plan if that happens.

Easier access camp sites are right off the Forest Road 108, at either the Hwy 73 entrance or the Devil Dog Rd entrance (currently closed for road construction). The best cell coverage is at any spot where you can clearly see Bob Williams Mountain (the one with the towers). The camp sites that are farther in the trees are a little rough to get to, but manageable. Cell service is almost not existent in these sites, but you only have ride/walk a short distance to get a signal.

Williams, the town, has plenty of places to get water, dump your tanks, buy groceries, go out to dinner, or just show the Route 66 tourist shops. At night, everything is lit with sparkly lights and they have horse drawn carriage rides. They are an OHV friendly town, and on the weekends you can see everyone's ride.
