Great first trip with the kids.

Had a great time, dispersed camping, free spot, lots of spots, clean. Just a short drive to some great watering holes. Took a star off because there was no water within walking distance, and not much of a view from our spot. I also took a star off because it was busy and loud.

Private and calm

This camping spot is so calm. It was easy to find. Lots of spots open. Lots of space between camping spots. It can be a little noisy but that is kinda nice to me. There are a lot of cows roaming around and they did wake us up kinda early but I didn’t mind.

Fun Spot

Lots of campsites available and a good location between Sedona and Flagstaff. It tends to fill up quick, at least in the summer months. Privacy can be an issue, especially when you have to use the bathroom. Cows walk through the site though!
