Chavez Crossing Group Campground is in the picturesque Red Rock district of Arizona, with famous red rock formations and breathtaking painted sunsets. Placed beside a creek and surrounded by sycamore and cypress groves, the campground's location offers a fresh sense of the great outdoors. It's also conveniently close to developed entertainment like golf courses and stylish restaurants in the resort town of Sedona. Drive through Oak Creek Canyon to view majestic red-hued cliffs, buttes, and canyons. At night, relax by the campfire at your site or take advantage of Sedona's trendy shopping and nightlife.
Go wading or fishing in the crystal clear waters of Oak Creek or take a stroll with your camera to photograph the unique flora, fauna and rock formations. Cathedral Rock and Bell Rock are famous nearby attractions, perfect for exploring or photographing.
The campground's location makes it a convenient place to mix outdoors time with shopping trips in the resort town of Sedona. Three group sites are available, and all three can be reserved for a total capacity of 110.
Chavez Crossing is in a high desert region situated at the base of the Mogollon Rim, a 200-mile long slope that ranges between 5,000 and 7,000 ft elevation. The unique landscape creates erosion that has shaped spectacular canyons and buttes that make the region an appealing attraction.
A variety of hiking trails and swimming holes are a short drive away. Seek out your favorite panoramic views at Munds Mountain Wilderness, or explore the Red Rock/Secret Mountain Wilderness area in the heart of Oak Creek Canyon. Here, you can find abandoned dwellings and rock art from early inhabitants.

You need a 14-day notice to camp here. Don't bother trying to show up without notice and expect to be let in. Despite their HUGE campground, they will not accommodate quick overnight guests. Twice I've been turned away by very rude camp hosts. (Friends and I tried camping there while Oak Creek was closed in 2014). If everything else along Oak Creek is occupied go camp at Clear Creek or up to the dispersed camping near Lake Mary. Honestly, even if I had a great group, I'll take them elsewhere, their lack of hospitality ruined this once amazing campsite.
