Really beautiful but crowded and noisy

Got the last spot on the road this app leads to. Got stuck across the way from a bunch of loud preteens. Lots of trails nearby and sneaky pincushion cacti. Watch your step or wear thick shoes. Arrived in the early afternoon on a weekend in mid-October. Beautiful views and weather, obnoxious neighbors. Lots of alcohol related trash near the fire pits.

Solid Spot

This is a solid spot with many different areas to camp. Some of them have fire pits. Some have a lot of ruts in the ground. But there are trees and it’s somewhat private. Verizon service was low but AT&T not bad, I was able to work!

Stunningly Beautiful

This spot is so gorgeous!! A little bit of “traffic” mid-day but nothing too crazy or loud once the sun started setting. There were only 2 things I would say were bad. Mainly that the people who were at the spot before us decided to us their campfire ring as a trash can and then pile broken wood on top of it as to “hide” it. And this is why we can’t have nice things! Second, the forest roads you turn off of 89A onto we’re quite steep and on the edge of the mountain. The first road had guard rails but the second one did not! If you’re afraid of heights I don’t recommend making this drive or at least don’t do it unmedicated lol. Otherwise it was beautiful and peaceful. It was really nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the city(Phoenix) and THE HEAT!

Warmer than Flagstaff? Cooler than Phoenix

High up in the Prescott National Forrest. The drive is incredible but once you get there it's like any forrest. You can't tell that you are at 7500 feet. Perfect September weather.
