3 Reviews of Side Rock Campground
Near to Sedona... still very magical

While we only stayed over one night it was pretty nice. Busier than I would have expected however it was somewhere we would enjoy going back to again. Very basic camping but it is in a very magical location!

I do not have more to add to from the other reviews- the nights and mornings are cold so plan for drastic temperatures. We went during monsoon season- Late August. Came in during lightening- it probably would have rained had it not been so warm. Very serene and nice.

Oak Creek Canyon Campsites

Great location along the creek. Please note: it's much cooler down in this canyon at night, so prepare accordingly, even if it was hot during the day. No utility hookups but toilets are available, and some sites can accommodate rv's up to 36'. The Coconino Forrest area is amazing. Just about every climate and hiking you can imagine in one location. Sedona's red rocks are within hiking distance. Too hot to hike? Visit Slide Rock or shop the mystic weirdo shops in town. Sites are cheap, but offer few amenities other than level sites, picnic tables, fire rings (check the fire risk at time of stay, however) & grills. Perfect for backpacking. Beautiful.

First to Review

Near Slide Rock State park which is such a unique state park to check out! This is the ‘attraction’ that drew us to Sedona and the slides did not disappoint. It’s a busy place, but still fun. There are a couple areas of the park to check out so, I would say, a full day can easily be spent here- especially if it’s warm and you can play in the water :) We chose to stay a bit out of the park since we assumed it would be a busy place to camp and this primitive campground was perfect. During the day we were around crowds visiting the various attractions and at night we retreated to a quiet, ‘in nature’ campsite.
