Pulling in to the camp ground it wasn’t what I expected. Roads are very narrow and spots are extremely tight. You must have some skill in backing up to get in these spots. Water, electrical, and sewer plus wifi made are available. I would recommend the back campground which is closer to the trail. The positives are how close it is to Watson Lake. You can walk 15 minutes on a trail connecting the two. There is also a kids playground at the Lake and a huge grass area.

Lots of options and great views

If you like a crowd, go north from the freeway. If you want secluded dispersed sites, go south. We went just a mile south and found a great spot just off the road, which is well maintained. Incredible views. We did see a scorpion.

Quiet, Spacey and FREE

My road dog and I have been traveling the country for a few weeks now and this is probably the best campground that we’ve found so far. It’s spacious, there’s not a lot of people and it’s just far enough from the hwy that we can’t hear any traffic. The night sky is lit with millions of stars. It’s a great place to camp, weather you’re in an rv or a tent.

High up and So Cool!

Up in the pines and smells great! Lots of dispersed spots waiting for you but the early bird gets best choice!

Breath taking views!

Easy in and out campsites. Gorgeous views! Close to Prescott.

Spectacular close-up views!

Great views of Granite Mountain and lake! Two parking sites, one with a boat launch and Yavapai campgrounds close by.

Compleat package!

Such a beautiful place! Amazing views of Granite Mt, great hiking trails. Feels out in the wilds but less than 10 miles from Prescott.

The walk to the lake makes this amazing!

The short walk to the stunning lake Watson makes this park a must visit. You’ll feel like you’re in the wilderness of the mountains be able to access trail head just a few steps from your site and yet be a DoorDash call away from pizza at your door. Plus that same walk to lake will bring you to playground and you can even rent kayaks.

Holding back from 5 star review for just two reasons because roads through site were basically dirt making it super dusty when wind picked up making dinners and hanging out outside the camper pretty tough. Plus the laundry facilities were pretty limited in hours for a place with so many sites. Having to do laundry mid-day with last loads in by 2:30 when we were out exploring wasn’t doable for us.

Not impressed

We arrived late so it was very dark. The signage was very difficult to see and no one was available to help us find our spot. Cell reception and internet were terrible. The employee at the entrance told us what spot we were in, but said sometimes people took them, so just find another spot and let them know where we landed. 🤷‍♀️ Which is what happened. We found a spot in area H, hooked up and went to sleep. Woke up at 6:45 with the neighbors dog barking A LOT! At 7:30 another neighbor was blasting AC/DC! And at 8:00 the barking dog people were blowing bubbles for their 3 under 8 years old children, screaming and giggling 5 feet from my RV! Needless to say, we moved to another spot for the 2nd night. It was quieter, but the whole vibe of the park was unorganized and the overall impression we got was an unfriendly, cranky bunch that lived there.

exactly what was needed

the host clifford makes this dispersed site easy to navigate. sometimes finding places like this can be awkward, but his signs and care for the experience make this a fantastic place to be in the northern arizona desert. the sunsets. the sunrises. the coyotes howling. this is a really good spot.
