The perfect retreat

This campsite is perfection up in the mountains. Dispersed spots give some seclusion, while other sites are clumped nicely for those like a little more “neighborly” camping. No cell phone reception offers a true retreat from every day life. Drive up to the top of the mountain and I promise the views won’t let you down. Careful for wildlife, bears are common and I saw a few elk on the drive. The winding mountain round to get there is gorgeous.

Crowded but fun

This campground has tons of amenities and is not far at all from downtown Prescott. It seemed pretty crowded when we went, so we actually hiked around a bit to find a little more seclusion. Amenities were good and plenty of activities.

Dessert camping

This site was nice and provided a lot of amenities, however desert camping proved not to be my style. Tons or cholla cactus create threat to pets or even people when trying to maneuver in the dark. Easy place for beginners to get acquainted with camping and lots of activities available.

Earth day perfection

Spent earth day here in 2018 - it was perfect. We actually pitched our tent in what is known as Workman Creek - just a little further up the road. Definitely recommend a higher clearances vehicle, although I made it okay in my standard Ford Escape. Workman Creek is a great dispersed camping location and the views from the top of the mountain are unmatched. Careful of fire restrictions in dry season.
