Mingus Mountain Campground
Mingus Mountain is located at 7,200 feet and it has some fantastic views of the Verde River Valley and red rocks of Sedona.  It’s also about a 30 minute drive from Jerome ghost town.  The campground is very nice and sits among a beautiful forest of large pine trees. Keep in mind that you’ll need to take a 3-mile dirt road to get to the campground. It has vault toilets, but no drinking water. It’s a great place to ride your OHV, horse, mountain bike, hike or stargaze!
