Lovely place to camp

We enjoyed our stay here. The campground is close to area attractions such as Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma Castle National Monument which I both highly recommend. Campground is also close to the towns of Jerome and Clarkdale which are fun places to visit for the day.

Impeccable campground

We really love this state park. Each site has electric and water hook ups. No sewer unfortunately but if you camp there it’s free to dump. We stayed this time in quail loop in spot 33 which has good shade throughout the entire day. Mesquite trees so not full shade but better then most. You are close to the trailhead that leads down to the verde river with some great swimming holes. The camp hosts are friendly and keep the grounds very clean. There are showers at both loops. And even a designated tent only loop. You are within 2 miles of Cottonwood if forgot something.

Very Nice, but...

Our campsite loop was 50% shaded and unfortunately ours was not. Very clean, especially restrooms! Beware of gusty winds in the afternoons! Camp hosts, Oscar & Laurie were great!

Great trails and river access

We have stayed here before but on the lower Quail loop. This time up at the loops above. Not much shade at these but some more spread out then others. Electric and water hookups only. But free dump station comes with paid Rv spot. Cell service was great. No swimming in the lagoons but you can walk to the verde river and swim in there. Bathrooms have running water and showers.

Great facility

I've camped here twice, once solo in a tent and once in a cabin with my family and dog.

This facility is clean, quiet (depending on your site neighbors, of course), close to town, and has great amenities.

The tent sites had decent separation from each other with adequate shrubbery in between.

The cabin loop is wonderfully private from the rest of the park and a great getaway for anyone looking for some peace and quiet.

Bathrooms are well maintained, lots of trails, good fishing opportunities in the lagoons.

Absolutely will camp here again.

Hidden gem in a city

This little campsite was a nice get away from our home in Las Vegas, NV. Clean bathrooms and water stations at each campsite which was nice. Lagoon was in walking distant from campsite and had lots of easy trails along the way.

Just perfect

We planned a last minute trip for a first time visit to this state park. We can not say enough great things about it. You have electric and water hook ups. Each spot doesn’t have a lot of room in between but this didn’t bother us as we enjoy hiking and being out and about. There is a table, fire ring and charcoal bbq grill. There are 20+ different trails throughout the park. There is 3 small lagoons that are stocked with fish. Dump station available for free if camping in park. I highly advise reserving a spot online. Playground with zip line down by the lagoons and many day use areas available.

One of our favorites in AZ!

Where to begin? Bring your bicycles, kids, horses, and a great attitude and you and have nothing but fun here very clean very well maintained nice helpful people.. it's close to anything you want to go to Jerome the ruins the casino Sedona it has all the amenities that you would want to take care of you your family or any gifts that you have with you..

Really nice facility. Great bathrooms and showers. There's an area to take the little ones down to river where they play in the water safely,. Dogs are welcome and the playground has a really fun mini zip line. The place is well-maintained, especially the restrooms. Camp hosts were welcoming and knowledgeable about hiking. Fun place to hike.

A new gem

For being so close to cottonwood you would never know it. Nice ripairen area along the Verde.

Amazingly beautiful

Such a peaceful and beautiful camping environment. The grounds are exceptionally clean. The bathrooms as well. Very well maintained by camping host on site. We had a wonderful time, at this dog friendly campground. Good space between campsites. We can’t wait to go back!
