Sedona, Jerome, Prescott, AZ

Due to the Govt shutdown, we will not be making our anticipated trip to Utah in a couple weeks. Instead we will be spending time in the Parker, AZ after attending a boat race on Lake Havasu. We will be staying at River Island SP.

We would like to spend a couple nights somewhere around Sedona, Jerome, or Prescott area, before heading to Phoenix. Any cool places, campgrounds, RV parks, dry or not?

Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood is an excellent base for touring all the areas. It has nice large sites. You don't want to take your RV up to Jerome...very narrow hwy and curvy.

Thanks for that. I had seen it on the SP website but didn't know anything about it.

How about the Prescott area. Do you have any experience there?

Fairgrounds RV Park. Prescott Valley. $15.48 a day with Passport America. Nothing fancy but gets the job done. That's my location now.

x3 for Dead Horse Ranch. A beautiful park with hiking, fishing, horseback riding. From 2 of the loops at night you can look up at the lights of Jerome or down onto Cottonwood. We loved it there and will return

It's right between Jerome (take the car), Sedona (also take the car) and a reasonable ride from Flagstaff and Rt 66

Thanks for the help. I reserved a spot at Dead Horse Ranch. Going from one state park to another.

The state parks may be busier than normal due to all the Feds being closed. I have a friend that owns a share of a houseboat on Lake Powell. This was supposed to be his week on the boat. He was told that he could go out to his boat (since it is his property), but could not move it from it's mooring.

Sounds like a lovely place to camp. However, the roads to get there seem challenging (mountain directory west) if coming from Phoenix, which way would most rvers take? Or from the North, same question

What highway are you looking at to get to Dead Horse Ranch from Phoenix or from the north? You mentioned the Mountain Directory...From either Flagstaff or Phoenix the best way is I-17 to Camp Verde Exit and west to Cottonwood. It's all excellent driving with no concerns. Have a good trip!

When I went onto the Dead Horse Ranch site and clicked for directions, it looked as though they took you down 89 and then 89a, which didn't seem a good choice. So from Vegas we would go I-40 to Flagstaff and then I-17 south and as you say I-17 north from Phoenix. Thanks 👍

Oh yes, you want to AVOID 89. The right way to go is the one listed by twogypsies. Get to I-17 and take that exit.

Thats the way we are planning to go. Lake Havasu City - Kingman - Flagstaff - Camp Verde. Google maps shows a southern route through Wickenburg to I-17, just north of PHX, but the northern route looks more interesting.
