Dispersed Camping

Loy Butte Road


USDA Forest Service

Coconino National Forest

While much of the Forest is open to dispersed camping, there are several sites set aside as designated dispersed camping sites, listed below. Pick up or download a free Motor Vehicle Use Map to know where it is legal to drive. See Guidelines for information and policies, and Specific Sites for more details and contact information.

Know before you go! Be aware extreme winter weather or flooding risks can necessitate the closure of forest roads at different times of the year. Many forest roads that lead to dispersed campsites may be closed during seasonal road closures, so please check the Forest Road Status web page for more information about the status of forest roads in each District.

Fire restrictions may be in place. During fire restrictions, campfires, fires, and charcoal fires are not permitted in dispersed camping areas. This includes both Stage 1 and Stage 2 Fire Restrictions. Gas operated devices with an on/off switch are allowed.

Busy but good spot

Had to drive farther down on the road than marked. Didn’t allow camping in first few lots. Very full but found enough space even arriving after dark. Porta potties were available.

Dirt Parking lot

It worked as a place to sleep for the night in our van and the view was rather majestic in the morning but it was very crowded with more than 30 cars and RVs. They did have two porta potties

Great open area

Great site! This is was my first site I used on my road trip. There is about a 2 mile road from the main road and 1.5 miles of that is rough but my mazda did fine. Just go slow. Had a nice breeze and views of the mountains. There are a lot of off roading that goes on in the area but it stops before dusk.
