Campground Description

At this creekside campground you'll have a fishing hole for your back yard, and that's not all. Add spectacular scenery, clear water swimming holes, picturesque hiking trails and excellent wildlife watching (in other words the standard amenities of Oak Creek Canyon) and it should come as no surprise that these pieces of recreational real estate are in high demand. Now comes the bad news. This campground is small, so small that trailers and RV's are prohibited. So small that to get a campsite here you've got to be more than early, you've got to be lucky.The decor at this campground is Arizona ash and box elders, gravel beaches and stream-bed boulders. The creek is regularly stocked with trout. Colorful songbirds add a flash of brilliance to the trees. Access is easy. The campgrounds are just a few yards off US 89A and the pull-throughs are paved.

    Very small campground, with a small one-way paved oval to drive around to get in or out. Campsites are extremely close together, but still very pretty area. If you are the type of camper that wants to have people close by, and be within yelling distance of the host's RV, you would feel comfortable here. Personally, I would not go back, I'd recommend trying one of the other campgrounds around Sedona.
