“Ideal combination of back country access and proximity to town”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2019

Overall Rating

We loved being able to hike into the back country directly from our site, while being just a few short miles from charming Old Cottonwood and all the services one could ever need. We camped in the Coopers Hawk Loop, which is set on a ridge above town and offers long views towards the mountains to the southwest. Even though we were on t... more

“Great State Park, Great Location”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2019

Overall Rating

This is our second time here. We stayed here a year ago and liked it so much we came back! We stayed in the Quail Loop as we did before. The sites are nicely spread out, pads are kept and are mostly level, bathrooms and showers are super clean and everyone we have met at the front entry, hosts, and other campers have all been lovely. ... more

“Clean and well kept”

Reviewed Nov 25, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a great Stte Park. It was a little crowded over Thanksgiving. The sites are nicely spread out.
Clean restrooms and nice hot showers.

Stayed in overflow the final night ($20 - dry camping). Nice location. Nice long trails - like - hiking - biking - fishing - kayaking.

“Fantastic State Park”

Reviewed Oct 25, 2018

Overall Rating

This has to be one of our favorites. Nestled along the Verde River and only a stone’s throw to old town Cottonwood gives a quiet and remote feel while still being close to town amenities. The park is immaculate. We stayed in Quail Loop closer to the river with more trees; the other two loops are higher up with long range views but few... more

We stayed here March 10-14, 2018. Our first time in the Cottonwood/Sedona area. I will be back to this park someday despite the 2 errors I made. I will never book Site 95 again, as was horribly unlevel front to back. The reservation website may have mentioned it, but I was probably super happy to get a site at this really busy campgr... more

It was mid-Winter and I had convinced her to join me on a journey to wherever and for as long as she’d like in my Volkswagen Bus, about two years and three and a half months before a cultural revolution would hashtag Vanlife the Southwest into a big ol’ VW resurgence.

“Nice Clean State Park”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2018

Overall Rating

One of the nicer state parks, clean and consistent. As with all parks, location is everything...the park was booked and didn't have a choice of many spots. I chose site 73 which was across from bath house and not the best site...look for an outside spot along the loops, roomier than inside spots...didn't get out and around but you are ... more

“Great for an overnight or two.”

We stayed two nights, but not consecutively. First was when we arrived in the area before heading out to dry camp and the second was after dry camping to dump and refill. Our first stay was in the loop at the top of the hill and if given an option I wouldn’t choose to stay there again. Although it is close to the hiking trail, which ... more
