About

National Forest

While much of the Forest is open to dispersed camping, there are several sites set aside as designated dispersed camping sites, listed below. Pick up or download a free Motor Vehicle Use Map to know where it is legal to drive. See Guidelines for information and policies, and Specific Sites for more details and contact information.

Know before you go! Be aware extreme winter weather or flooding risks can necessitate the closure of forest roads at different times of the year. Many forest roads that lead to dispersed campsites may be closed during seasonal road closures, so please check the Forest Road Status web page for more information about the status of forest roads in each District.

NO LONGER LEGAL TO CAMP HERE!

So sorry tobbe the bearer of bad news. As of May 2023, dispersed camping is not allowed within 20 miles of Flagstaff. We were not aware of this new regulation and so set up camp at the Schultz TH parking lot. Local police officer filled us in and was very nice about it. Bummer!

You might get away with 1 overnight if you're in a pinch. Parking lot is large, flat and gravel. There is a nice portapotty.

Quiet spot

Dirt parking lot. Fine for a single night. Clean toilet available. Internet connection was good.

Good for a quickie

Dirt parking lot at the trailhead for overnight parking. Not for long-term camping. Frequented by the locals for the walk.
