Mingus Mountain Campground is located in the Prescott National Forest offers spectacular views of the Verde River Valley, the red rocks of Sedona, and the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff. You’ll need to drive about 3 miles on a (nice) dirt road to get there, but the drive is worth it and not an issues for RVs or trailers.
The first-come first-serve campground has 30 campsites for tents, trailers and RVs (19 with electric hookups). Campsites 1-11 are tent only. Campsites 12-30 are for tents, trailers and RVs. There are also vault toilets, but no drinking water (so bring your own). Each campsite also has a table, fire ring and grill.
