Lots of camping sites through out. We camped 3 miles off road. Couldn't really hear the 89A, quiet and clean. Camp sites are marked and designated. Great for big rigs and trailers. We were tenting but enjoyed neighbors with trailers and still had LOTS of space. Not many big trees, enjoyed an Juniper that was big enough for a couple camp chairs. Road was a bit rough in places but for most part our Dodge Van had no problems. Closer too the historical sites the road gets really rough and sandy.
Zane Gray RV Park is a hidden gem! The sites are shady, spacious and sparkling clean. There are hiking trails that lead to a nearby creek, beautiful bird feeders throughout the property, a nice dog run for furry friends and plenty of lush green grass for an impromptu picnic. The campers are friendly and the entire staff goes above and beyond to make your experience one to remember. We didn’t want to leave, but took solace in knowing we’ll be back soon.
Sure theirs some nice views, but you have to take turns viewing them. I’ve never seen so many rv’s in one area in the last 3 years of boondocking. If that’s not enough, the atv’s are stirring up a lot of dust. It’s like a little city out in the middle of no where without any amenities. ￼Then again if you don’t mind squeezed in like a sardine, it is free.
There are multiple spots to choose from along this dirt road (Bloody Basin Rd) to pull off and camp. The road is nicely graded and fairly smooth with a few sections of washboard and rocky spots. We did fine in our 26 ft class C but drive with caution as some of the pull outs do not have turn around areas and there are deep ruts and washouts to navigate around.
There is no water, garbage or any other amenities so pack in and out whatever you bring, and pack out some more if you’re so inclined. Lots of debris left behind by shooters.
Nice area with trails to hike or bike around. There are quite a lot of ATVs but they were not as bothersome as some of the areas we’ve camped in. You can hear the highway noise and see light pollution from Phoenix but it was not horrible. We did see some shooting garbage, targets and shells laying around but did not hear any shooting when we were there. My dog did get sprayed by a skunk during the daylight about 10 yards from our spot so be aware of wildlife!
We did see a park ranger while we are there which is always nice.
Weak but usable Verizon and AT&T coverage but not enough to stream anything.
Stayed here last night for just the night, decent amount of bigger RV’s when you first pull down the road but if you keep going up the dirt road you can find a great secluded spot to set up camp. I went about 3-4 miles down the road and found a great spot on top of a ridge to have a fire and set up our tent. Beautiful view in the morning, and everyone seemed friendly. Good spot.
We are always pleased with our stay here. The park has so many different activities from hiking, horse trail, lakes and access to the verde river. We stayed in spot 97 this time and had some privacy with the bushes and trees from our neighbors. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. There is a fun bike track for the kids or even adults up by the tent loop. Cottonwood is just a few miles and lots to do in town.
We stayed here for a night over the holiday weekend. We were able to find a spot but were within a close distance to other campers. The road had traffic all through the night and during the day there was a lot of atvs and side by sides. Great for dispersed camping if you don’t mind traffic and dust.
It was a little off-putting how I called (you have to call, they don't have online reservations) MONTHS ahead of time and was told that I could request a waterfront site but there was no guarantee… odd that they couldn't assign me a site then or that I wasn't allowed to choose. They called the day before and asked that I give them an arrival time before 5pm(that's when they close) and this added a bunch of stress because we were coming from a ways away and weren't used to how slow-going RV driving was. We felt like we couldn't have a relaxing drive across AZ because we needed to get there by 5 and cut it close. They gave a"waterfront" site(the place was super empty) but that's a stretch to say because you couldn't see the water at all- it was a short walk through trees/rocks. But once you got there the river was beautiful and peaceful. There were definitely other(empty) sites that had somewhat of a view of the river, so I'm not sure what the deal was with that- I felt like we were at the mercy of the owner's whim. We walked around and they have a little spring/pond and had I known I would have rather gotten one of the few sites right on that. oh well. The second night they parked someone in the spot right next to us- so odd since the whole row was empty! Don't expect privacy in between the sites- at least not the ones along the water. I walked down to where the primitive tent sites on the water are located and they are pretty cool- right on the edge of the water. They're squished together though and you would need to carry everything a bit because they aren't drive up sites, but unique if you had a group and could take a few close sites together. The bathrooms were clean and the showers are hot- always a bonus! A couple alpaca greet you as you come in and that's always fun. We used it more of a home-base for a day trip to Sedona that isn't too far away. Funny though that the best surprise was the little winery nearby- Oak Creek Vineyards.
