“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

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.

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

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

This is a great area and three days was not enough. We’ll be back to see more. The campground is nice and the bathrooms are adequate. Some space between sites with a little privacy. Site had water and electricity and a dump on the way in/out of the park. I would probably avoid Quail loop. Sites are very close and lots of low ha... more

We enjoyed this park thoroughly and will be returning for two weeks in November. You can see Jerome from many of the sites. It is a large park with a couple of small lakes and good hiking within the park. The nice thing about it's location is that you are around a 1/2 hour drive from Sedona and all the great hiking there. It is right n... more
