Nice quiet wooded camp

Nice camp. Sites are well separated. Quiet, but some road noise. Can hear cars passing, but very quiet after dark. Large 13x13 foot tent pads. Concrete table Gravel in campsites no dust or mud. Forest service directions say road is steep and twisty. It is, but not more than most mountain roads. Just one 15mph hairpin turn. When coming from Prescott. Much curvier from Jerome. Friendly campers.

Exceptional Activities

Took my Nobo trailer to the B loop specifically B07 spot with electrical hookups. The B loop is basically a parking lot on top of a mountain. I was a little dismayed at first because of how close each spot was. Once we settled in and began exploring we started to acknowledge the wonders of this camping spot. The trails here are absolutely top notch. Amazing views on the Woodchute trail roughly 7300 ft elevation. Roughly 2 miles (10 min drive) is the Mingus Mountain lake which was absolutely beautiful and great spot for a little day fishing ($5 day use fee). The host was nice and has the campground running very smoothly. The A loop spots are much more spaced out and are mainly for tents but some if not most are capable of being used by travel trailers/campers/tear drops. These spots are much more spaced but do not have power hookups. The best way to explain this spot is if you want more privacy with less convenience go with the A loop. If you absolutely need power go with the B loop. There’s several hiking trails to get lost on and that seems to be the main attraction here. Absolutely stunning views of Jerome/Sedona/Prescott. The weather was phenomenal with daytime temperatures in May around 74F and nighttime at 55F.
