Great dispersed camping

Camped here for two nights in two different spots. Both were great, plenty of distance between me and other campers, quiet and peaceful. There were some motor bikes and ATV’s over the weekend but nothing crazy. Good free camping that is easy to access and peaceful!

Clean but crowded and expensive

Based on previous reviews, I had much higher expectations for this place. It's located in a nicely forested setting, but the layout, at least where my site was located, is weird with huge and tiny sites all jumbled together. Maybe to protect the trees, then it would be ok. We had 20 amp…

Large Spots

There are large pull through spots and people seem to respect your camping space. Its a wash board about 500 feet in and it smooths out a bit after that. There is fair Tmobile signal here. Saw a humming bird multiple times. They will fly right up to you and stare at you. Nice breezes at…

Great views, wrong coordinates

Great views, west side closer to Sedona is a lot more rocky while east half is pretty easy. The location here is wrong and that's probably why there are bad reviews.... You can access off i17 by taking exit 320 and then driving down the forest road toward Sedona. Camping is only allowed in about…

Pretty view and safe

It was somewhat busy, but still quiet. You can faintly hear a train at night. I felt safe in my rooftop tent, but did hear coyotes around midnight. The view was pretty.

Fun Time in the Ponderosa’s

Great time. Beautiful campground. General store that sells beer and wine and a cafe with great food for breakfast and lunch if you are not into cooking in that moment. It is on old Route 66.

aka, Forest Road 552 Dispersed Camping

Nice, quiet, very widely spaced sites We have a 36’ Class A with a Cherokee Trailhawk tow and parked and dropped near the entrance, then went to scout for a site that would accommodate us. We found a site about a mile in or so, left on Schultz Pass Road and off of a little side road to the right…

Pleasant surprise

Was traveling west to Williams AZ and needed a break. Have been out a week and this is hands down the nicest place we've stayed. Glad we stopped here.

Expensive but needed

We had to pull in here unplanned due to a sandstorm. Many 18 wheelers had to pull over. This is a sandy place, zero grass. There are a few trees to block the winds, showers, fenced dog area, trash, and landrymat/lounge. Paid $43 with discount for Good Sams.

Pay at stop sign at entrance

Look for your overnight camp spot then go back to the entrance and pay for your site. The pay kiosk is at the stop sign at the entrance. No working showers.

Decent for beginners, amazing stargazzing

Just left this spot today after one night.

This place was fairly quiet, mininimal complaints! There are lots of areas to set your own car and tent as well.

The service road goes out quite a bit and you can pull into each branch line and see if you like the terrain.

Everyone kept to themselves…
