The Camping in Sedona is among the most beautiful that I have seen in Arizona. It rivals only the Grand Canyon in visual ecstasy. Add that to the many New Age Energy Vortexes that surround Sedona, and you will become engulfed in a very spiritual environment!
The red rocks are absolutely gorgeous. There are literally hundreds of camp sites to choose from; primitive sites to highly maintained RV parks. The Climate makes for perfect camping weather in the summer, at 4,400 feet Sedona is about 15-20 degrees colder than Phoenix.
In the winter watch for snow and ice as it gets quite cold. There are many places that have picnic tables and grills and some even have RV hook-ups. Most of the sites are Pay per Day.
We like to go to the top of the rim and camp away from the crowds (nearly 3 million per year!) , there are some cool sites about 5-6 miles North of Slide Rock. Just continue past the Vista View Point about a mile or so and you will see them on the right. For those of you who love to be adventurous there is plenty of room for you. We have found several are places to camp on top of cliffs that furnish some of the most beautiful you will ever see in Arizona, especially at sunset.
Do be careful when camping this close to the rim however, a night of sleepwalking could end up with you at the bottom of Red Rock Canyon!
