Quiet and Convenient Highlands Outside of Sedona

You must be a member or a Patreon subscriber to see location.


Located in the Coconino National Forest, this quiet and dispersed campsite is perfect for those looking for some solitude. Although it is not far from the highway, the rugged terrain requires slow and careful driving to access. As a result, this primitive forest road is often overlooked by other campers who prefer easier sites. The high desert mountains provide a low vegetation landscape with the occasional juniper, while the site itself is very exposed with little protection from the sun or the elements. It does, however, offer sweeping views of the canyon and rolling hills to the east, making for a breathtaking camping experience.

This site offers a great view of the sky, which is ideal for satellite connectivity, but cell service can be spotty or poor. There is a well-used stone fire ring and enough room for two or three vehicles. The ground is slightly uneven, so some vehicle leveling may be required.

The site is located about 30 minutes from Sedona, which is a popular city for tourism. So, if you are just passing through or looking for a convenient spot to camp near Sedona, this is highly recommended. Enjoy the solitude and peacefulness of this campsite, all while taking in the picturesque views of the surrounding mountains.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
