“Isolated and quiet ”

Reviewed Sep 07, 2018

Overall Rating

There’s not another person camping in sight! We drove 5 miles from the entrance off of hwy 89A on 525 until we found the left turn onto 525C. It was nerve jarring on a washboard dirt road. We passed several nice flat turnouts that were already occupied so we kept going until we found the gps coordinates as listed in the description. ... more

In my never ending effort to rank and file everything, ensuring all beings, matter and nonsentient campsites are fully aware of their position in my world, I deem this road the best camping in the Sedona / Cottonwood Disneyplex. While there seem to be less “spots” on this road, for vans and tenters, the spots available come with th... more

“Very peaceful and unbeatable night sky”

Reviewed Apr 27, 2018

We found a spacious site about 3 miles down this road on the left next to a dry creek bed. It was beautiful and peaceful - nearest camper was probably a half mile away. Quite a few vehicles went past us but it didn’t really bother us. Mostly those pink Jeep tours. The night sky was incredible. We saw coyotes, even little baby ones... more

Stumbled upon this great site by accident. 525c is also called Sycamore Pass road. There are several spots large enough for 3-4 large RVs. Very quiet despite pretty consistent traffic I found the other campers extremely friendly and willing to help others-even shared potluck and campfires, but folks are here for privacy. Not too... more

“Great night skies but ...”

Reviewed Apr 09, 2018

Overall Rating

These spots feel out in the middle of nowhere, if that's what you're looking for. Road is a little rough. Night sky is stunning. We were disappointed, though, that many of the multi-RV sites were taken up by one RVer spreading out to ensure no one else can share the spot.

We spent New Years eve plus 2 more nights in this beautiful site. Sedona on one side and Jerome on the other. Got to watch the full moon rise and enjoy the open sky. Sites are big with fire pits and pretty flat. Sites are spread out so you feel like you are all alone. Lots of places to bike and hike. Road in is not paved but my 31 ft c... more

This is a great spot - the entire road is open for camping, so there are a lot of spots. We did see quite a few campers, but we just kept driving until we found a good and private spot. The views are incredible, there is hiking near by, and it's not that far from town. Probably my favorite free campsite yet. A lot of tour jeeps do d... more

We stayed just past the intersection of 525C and 9549M. There is plenty of hiking nearby. The spot we were in was far enough off the road so traffic wasn't annoying, but there is enough of it. Lots of cars, Jeep tours, and ATVs. We had ok cell service, but it wasn't consistent. There are a number of spots large enough for multiple veh... more

“Situated between Cottonwood and Sedona”

A big thank you to Campendium. This was our first boondocking spot, and we found it here. Stayed for 14 nights in April. Go west on 525, a.k.a. Loy Butte Road, from 89A. Plenty of spots along 525, but continue to the 2nd cattle guard and take a left to get to 525c. Our 31' 5th wheel had no issue with the roads, nor did we need 4WD. ... more

We picked a spot where 525C meets 9549. The drive out 525C was pretty smooth with some washboard areas interspersed. We have a 4 x 4 pickup and a tiny camper so it was no trouble. Not sure how larger rigs would do. Our site was relatively level and had a nice juniper tree that provided shade for us and our dogs in the afternoon. It wa... more
