“Plenty of trails”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

Desert mountain 'scapes are always breathtaking and you will find numerous places to hike and explore. We were here late in February and experienced weather typical of Arizona. The days were fairly warm when the wind did not blow. We didn't have to have heavy jackets until late afternoon. Outdoors and in the sun, it's hard to ask for more when the scenery is this diverse.

“How to know you have arrived”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Such a variety of plants and trees. The Ponderosa Pines are amazing and the golden Alpines in October look so beautiful splashing color all over the forest. The large boulders and pockets of cave like crevices are intriguing. Red rock that pops up out of nowhere completely captures your attention to continue looking for more eye popping views. What a great time exploring.

“Words are inadequate!”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

We took the "long way" to flagstaff and the Gramd Canyon National Park and couldn't have been happier that we took the time! It is a beautiful drive with several places to stop for photo opportunities. At one location, there was even an Indian crafts fair. There were no services because of the government shut down but it didn't matter because Sedona was nearby.

Lots of fall foliage and rock formations! Beautiful drive! We plan to return again as soon as we can! Many free attractions in the area - nature at its best!

“Cave Springs Campground - Perfect!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

A very nice campground in the Coconino National Forest in Oak Creek Canyon between Sedona and Flagstaff. We stayed four nights and it was perfect for us (three year-old and two adults). We would stay again.

There are 82 sites, of which 11 are reservable. Very quiet as radios are not allowed.
Coin-operated showers (Minimum $4.00 for 8 minutes - very hot water).
Tables, fire pits and cooking grills, wood for purchase, paved roads and spurs, vault-type toilets (stinky - bring air spray so you don't choke and antibacterial wipes), and drinking water are provided.
Store on site for necessities and basic groceries you may need.
