Verde Valley AZ Trip Report

Here's a trip report from our visit to the Verde Valley or Arizona last month, including Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome, and Camp Verde. What a beautiful area!

That must have been a very satisfying outing, great scenery, great food and peace and quiet when needed!


Were the apple trees in Sedona blooming or getting ready to do so?


Congratulations on a nicely planned, implemented and documented outing.


Thanks for taking us along vicariously! A total smiles outing for me.

Thanks so much Diesel-Lover! We had a great time there. It must have been a little early for the Apple blossoms as things were just starting to turn green. It was great to see the trees turn from brown to green while we were there.

Glad you got to enjoy a slice of heaven

The area is one reason we bought S&B when we came off road FT


Camp Verde may have to change it's name....
400+ CG, Large RV Storage Facility, RV/Car Wash and a Large 2-3 bedroom Planned Community -----all owned by a conglomerate
Soon to be known as 'Contemporary'

You live in a great place! I have mixed feelings about the pace of development, but I have to say we enjoyed the new RV park, Verde Ranch. It seems well done and well managed.

We just spent a week at the Verde Valley park, (Thousand Trails), and loved the area. We had some friends that spent a week there in March and we went from Goodyear up to there to visit. All 4 of us took a Jeep tour and had fun doing it. We even took our Dachshund with us and he had fun during the trip. He got out of the Jeep when we stopped and walked up the side of the mountain behind me and looked out over the valley. Sadly he passed away this past Friday while we are in Alamosa, Co.
We went into Jerome, expensive wife spent some on items there. Then we took 89A down from Flagstaff back to Sedona one day beautiful drive. Wife never wants to ride a motorcycle, but now she wants to rent a slingshot and drive the 89A again. Go figure.

You guys do such a nice job showing off every area you visit. Thanks for that. We feel very blessed to have retired to Sedona. It was nice seeing the area through your eyes.

Sorry about your Dachshund. Its hard to lose a good friend and companion. I think 89A on a motorcycle sounds like fun. I dont think I could convince my wife of that, though! Regardless, what a beautiful drive.

Thank you for your comment! We find interesting people, places to visit, and things to do everywhere we visit. Thats one of the things we love about RVing. Always appreciate ideas for our next visit. Since you are a local, let us know if we missed a great place to hike or eat!

Well done (again)! This is a wonderful report on the area. Being based in So Cal, we enjoy Tucson AZ at least once (sometimes twice) a year. We try to avoid lower elevations in AZ from May through August. Just too hot for us. Above 3,000 foot elevation it is doable. AZ has everything that an adventurer could ask for.

Thanks, HavingABlast! Its amazing what a difference a few thousand feet in elevation can make. We plan to be at the FMCA rally in Tucson in March. It would be fun to meet a few folks from iRV2 there!

Could not convince mine about a Jeep tour, but she took one then scheduled one for Apache Junction later on another day. She is the one wanting to do the slingshot ride, could never convince her to do a motorcycle, but once again it was her ideal for the slingshot. She is even trying to find one here in Colorado Springs to ride up Pike's Peak this week plus she wants a Jeep tour here as well. GO FIGURE.
