This is one my favorite boon docking sites. Arrival was easy, it's off a dirt road a couple miles west of Sedona. The turn off is a bit sharp, but the dirt road is wide. The road is okay, with some pot holes and rivulets, so I drove slowly. There were some shabbier camps immediately into the area, so I just kept going - having scou... more

Assez facile d’accès Après 25 min sur la route forestière. Un site magnifique, extrêmement calme et disposant d’une vue à couper le souffle. Retour en pleine nature. Nous aurions souhaité y rester plus longtemps.

Kudos to Lostagn and Teddi&Roger on the directions from Dry Creek road. While maybe longer based on Google maps, it is way better pulling a trailer/rig with the shorter gravel road segment. I camped just off FS525 on the spur that takes you to Nolan tank. Backed in easily into the site straight off the road and had a magnificent view a... more

This was our first time boondocking for more than an overnight and certainly going this far off road. We read all the reviews and felt confident in taking our large rig in. We entered off Drycreek to cut down on time and the directions that are listed in previous post were accurate and good. I would just add to it that when you think y... more

Pretty much ditto on Roger an Teddy previous review, If you coming in from the north through Sedona, just several blocks past the police station, turn right on Dry Creek Rd. Follow to Boynton Pass, turn left to stop sign , turn left for about 1/4 mile and your there. (6 miles paved to cattle guard, 2 miles unpaved to last stop sign)... more

Thanks to Campendium reviews we scored again! Awesome red rock vistas made the 6 miles of bumpy dirt road worthwhile. There are spots all along FS 525, however if Nolan Tank (FS 9549C) is your goal, do yourself a favor and turn onto Dry Creek Rd in Sedona, then left on Boynton Pass Rd and left again on 525 and ta da, you’re there!

There are many camp sites along the road. We drove about 6 miles up and found a road on the right that went back and had multiple spots. Only one other camper was any where near us. The views are amazing! It would be hard getting down the second road to where we were with a large RV or trailer. We have a cab over and it was easily ... more

So to reiterate all other reviews before us this camp site is amazing. The views were incredible and it was very close to Sedona to partake in all the fun. This was our first time traveling with a camper let alone dry camping so here are some helpful tips we found along the way. 1.) Water tank fill up for free at the Flying J outs... more

About a 6 mile drive down Forest Road 525. Plenty of places to pull over. Some are closed off for restoration, but still so many. The closeness to Sedona is perfect. Everyone is friendly and was usually pretty quiet after 10pm.
