Places to Camp near Flagstaff, AZ

Flagstaff, Arizona is surrounded by national forest land, with Walnut Canyon and Sunset Crater Volcano National Monuments taking up small swatches of space within them. Northern Arizona is a popular ski destination, but it holds up as a solid outdoor town year-round.

The best camping near Flagstaff is in the surrounding national forests, though you can get to the Grand Canyon in less than two hours. Granted, if you’re looking to spend significant time at the Grand Canyon, you’re better off getting a campsite there or staying near Tusayan, AZ. The Flagstaff area has more than enough in the way of outdoor activities, with tent and RV camping options being plentiful. If you’re looking to take full advantage of the Flagstaff area, find a campground near the mountain you plan to climb and wake up near the trailhead rested and ready to go.

    It is labelled as East Pocket on a map, but known to locals as “The End of The World,” the perfect nickname to describe this climactic viewpoint. Flagstaff sits upon a lofty plateau carpeted in high-elevation pine forest, but just south of town, the bottom drops out. Below a craggy rim of volcanic rock, the land takes a precipitous plunge into an entirely different world of red rock and sandstone towers. This is the realm of Sedona, and End of The World overlooks all of it.
