Camp Avalon offers Sedona's only private creek-side campground on the renowned Oak Creek. For over 25 years, our grounds have hosted community events and church gatherings and have been the destination of international pilgrimages, with people coming from around the world to connect with the Earth and the Creator amidst the special environment of Camp Avalon. Ideal for day- or week-long retreats, prayer, and spiritual gatherings, Camp Avalon provides the seclusion of nature but the convenience of a 10 minute's drive to west Sedona.
This is a privately run campground and very well run. Staff was very friendly and helpful getting settled in.
We had a deck campsite to put our tent on and it was great and very pretty overlooking the little river. Had to walk the gear a little bit to the deck but wasn't too bad. Everyone in the camp was very quite which was nice. This location served us well going into Sedona during the day for sightseeing.
When camping with a dog, especially in Arizona, I always look for water nearby. Camp Avalon has a nice creek running through, which is crucial for a desert campsite. There are pit toilets and potable water, which is all we needed. Just a short drive from awesome mountain biking trails, hikes, and town.
Nice campground within a short drive to West Sedona and Downtown. No hiking trails accessible from the campsite, but Oak Creek is if you want to jump in! Campsite is dog friendly. No showers, but portable toilets and well water are available. We stayed in the stone cabin here and enjoyed our stay.
The host was awesome! We had a location right next to the creek.
You get to choose your site. David was awesome and is one of the owners. He pretty much bought a piece of land and created a campground out of it. This was available when all the other state parks were booked. There is potable water and outhouses.
I've camped here there times now. Each time was enjoyable. Cool sites, some you can close a gate around so the Javelina aren't up in your business during the night. The stars are astounding here. My daughter saw her first constellation and shooting star here last year. Port-o-potties on site are decent. There is limited potable water available.
The last time I camped here the person collecting fees encouraged me to visit the ecovillage that owns the campground. I did some research and it is legitimately owned by a cult. So…if you're down with a theory abut aliens ruling humanity or something then I guess check out the ecovillage too. But if you don't want to end up in a straight up cult stick to the campground and maybe not get led to the ecovillage.
