“Inexperienced Campers Abound”

Reviewed Nov 14, 2017

We agree with all the comments about this area, the good and the bad. If you can get over the washboard road and get a spot as far from the road with passing OHVs then it’s not so bad. It’s a treat waking to hot air balloons at sunrise. It’s generally quite quiet, no highway noise, only passing vehicles and OHVs. The most unfortunat... more

“Never again”

Reviewed Nov 12, 2017

The washboard roads were horrible!!! We will never put our darling 23ft airstream through that again! It was crazy crowded, ATV’s, pink Jeep tours, dirt bikes cruising through all the time. The campsite was clean but definitely need max leveling at least at the one we were able to find. The traffic alone was a huge turn-off! The v... more

“Busy washboard road”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2017

Overall Rating

I was here on a Sunday in October and the area was very busy. Lots of traffic, most spots taken. I found a spot by the cattle guard just before the T. Just so much traffic, mostly Jeeps and not very quiet or relaxing. Lots of government traffic really in the morning. Obviously I wasn't in the ideal spot, and based on other reviews, ... more

Video Facebook link of this site, rode & surroundings. https://www.facebook.com/BodyMindSpiritCenter/videos/10159653137260338/" Upon entering is a bit of washboard road, but the rig handled it fine. We read many reviews of this road, and now camping here, can see why so mixed. It depends on your rig. We have a 35ft class A and spots ... more

“Best Bet for Free Camping Close to Sedona”

Reviewed Oct 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Forest Road 525 is a great free campsite located 7 miles from downtown Sedona. The site stays busy, but within the first two miles of 525 there is enough room for almost 20 rigs. The road continues for many more miles, however it is very washboarded. The Main Drag was ideal for us: enough privacy and not a pain in the butt to access... more
