Traveling to Sedona in Sept.

Hello All,

My DW and I will be traveling to Sedona AZ in September for my nephews wedding. I have a 40' MH and tow a Jeep. I am just wondering what kind of campground accommodations are available in or near Sedona. I have read both good and bad posts about Rancho Sedona. Has anyone ever been to one south of there in Cornville, AZ called LOLO Mai ? Thankfully the wedding is taking place after labor day, so I am hoping the area campgrounds wont be fully booked. Any one with info on this area your opinions would be appreaciated.

If it were me, I'd stay at Dead Horse Ranch State Park, about 30 minutes south. A great park, with lots of room for your rig.

We passed through that area last year on our way back home from Yellowstone the third week in September. We were unable to get into Rancho Sedona as they were booked. We were told by the manager that September is the beginning of their season. We ended up staying north of Sedona in Flagstaff at "Greers Pine Shadows". We wouldn't recommend this place. Spaces are narrow and tight. The park is fairly old and not as well maintained as we would have liked. We drove to Sedona in the toad. The 89A is narrow, steep and windy. We were glad we had not tried to take the MH into Sedona on that road.

Check rvparkreviews.com and google earth places you are considering, everyone is looking for something different for their RV experience.

Dead Horse Ranch, without a doubt. We stay there 1-2 weeks each year. An easy ride to Sedona from there. Don't forget to get a hamburger at the Haunted Hamburger in Jerome.

We stayed in Sedona once and even with the AC running it was too hot. We found Fort Tuthill Cocinino. County Campgrounds on 17 below Flagstaff on the way to Sedona. It wasn't crowded at all and at a higher elevation we didn't need AC during the day so we stayed in the dry camp spots. It's was exactly what we wanted . Easy drive to Sedona or Flagstaff.

If you want to boondock and since you have a Jeep. You may consider one of several campsites on Schnebly Hill Rd. You will need to access it from HWY 17 exit 320. To get to Sedona the quickest way go back to 17 south to exit 298 hwy 189. This may be further than you want to be and Schnebly Hill rd is a dirt rd. This end is well maintained. But you definitely would not want to follow it to Sedona in your MH, the Jeep yes. for a day out sightseeing & side roads for off roading.

Great Feedback so Far

Hello All,

We are still looking for spaces, and so far it appears that Dead Horse is the one, I'd love to do some 4-wheeling in the Jeep while there, but on this trip, that will be doubtful since we are going for my nephew's wedding and we will have my DW sister along as well, But !!!! for a second trip that sounds like a must do. And I can tell you that my DW and her sister are going to want to have some of the amenities that the MH offers so there are no hairs out of place. Those of you that have been to Dead Horse, what loop did you find you liked the best ?

Thanks for the info so far

We stayed at Ranch Sedona a few months ago. Had a great visit and will go back. We had no bad experiences there.

We have been to Rancho Sedona twice and were impressed both times. It is in the center of Sedona, but seems isolated because of the topgraphy. Very short drives to most interesting landmarks and to some good restuarants.
