Woodchute Trail Dispersed Camping - Mingus Mtn

Beautiful Junipers & Pines, lots of wildlife and nice camping spots spaced apart. I ❤ this mountain.

Less busy then FR 525 yet great views and easy road to access. 30 min to Sedona. Most campgrounds have fire pits set up by previous campers. You can gather firewood. 14 day max per month.

Red Rocks Heaven

This place is magical. We drove 6.7 miles off the paved turn off to an amazing overlook. The sunset against the red rocks is fantastic. Well worth the drive for free camping. No facilities so pack it in and pack it out but there are two ancient dwelling sites that are open from 9:30-3:00 each day…

Good sites

Where I camped wasn’t necessarily within this same campground but I drove on Tonelea trail that you will see split off to the left from the main road. On this trail we’re few spots which were all taken. It was a really nice environment with hills, grass and all. Where I setup was about 50 feet…

Nice and wild

Nice forested area in Prescott Forest. Few level sites for my rig and lots of nails on the ground from pallet wood.

Cool spot close to lots of neat stuff

Pretty cool spot right on the rio verde river, showers don’t cost extra $. Laundry is affordable, Jerome is just up the hill. Looks like if you had a shuttle car you could probably float the river to or from camp.

Super camping near Sedona

525 is super convenient to access Sedona. It is busy with lots of campers. Only negative is the ATV traffic on the road and kicking up dust. Can ride mountain bikes all the way into West Sedona.

We had a great time!

We pulled onto forest road 525 and drove about a little over 5 miles in to a beautiful large camp site that went in deep off of the road. It allowed for multiple visitors and yet still provided lots of space and privacy.

We showed up around noon on a friday afternoon and was able to find this…

Great dispersed camping

Amazing space to get dispersed camping. We drove in an adventure van with AWD and had no issues accessing the campgrounds. For internet access, the best we could get was always sub 10 mbps, so perhaps not the best spot for video conference meetings.

Busy road day and night

I only stayed one night while visiting Sedona. While it’s extremely busy, I was able to find a spot late Saturday afternoon. This road is used for Jeep and ATV rides so it’s constantly busy. Road is very dusty so when they fly by, you’ll get dust in your area. Be sure to park your door away from…

In the middle of nowhere and yet 15 minutes from town

Really enjoyed this camp spot. There was a decent amount of traffic due to OHVs and Jeeps, but all the spots allowed you to be kind of tucked away by yourself. The road wasn’t too bad either. Rough enough to keep 90% of people out, but smooth enough that my Subaru Forester didn’t have any problems.…

Clean, great host

Basic, but really clean. Xlnt bathrooms. Host is superb. Makes it worth the price which is a little steep. Not much to do at the actual site but good location to get to lots of things and places. You’ll want a vehicle (besides your rig obviously). This is less a ‘hang out at the campsite’…

Senator Hwy Dispersed

These dispersed spots are a good ways outside of Prescott. It’s a nice getaway after being in the busy Sedona area for the past five days. Some mosquitoes were still around but they left me alone after dark. Unfortunately there was quite a bit of trash at the campsite, left by previous occupants.

Spread out

Sedona is crowded so get there early. Found a nice spot just past the fork headed toward the cliff dwellings. Could barely hear the neighbors, nice view of the mountains. Plenty of privacy. No amenities so come prepared. Only noise at night was coyotes. During day there are lots of ATVs going…

It's loud and crowded

This has not been my favorite dispersed place. We had found a spot but then 2 other couples decided to join our spot, which wasn't ideal for us. There is lots of ORV,OHV from 8am-6pm so expect lots of noise. It has a pretty scenery but that was my only positive about the spot.
