Camping in Flagstaff

There are several campgrounds in the Flagstaff area to choose from. The campgrounds listed below are typically open during the months of May-October, which means a camphost is there to collect campsite payment as well as maintain the restroom facilities and drinking water supply. Once the campground is "closed" it is still available for free public use providing the road is open, but restrooms and drinking water will no longer be provided. The rates shown below are per night for up to 8 people in one vehicle. Extra vehicles are additional $8-$9 per night. Click on the name of a campground for more detailed information regarding location and available recreational amenities. Reservations are not required at any of these campsites, though during the summer months, these campgrounds do fill up often. If you'd like to reserve a spot at a campsite that does take reservations or would like to reserve group camping, you can do so by calling 877-444-6777 or go to Recreation.gov and submit a reservation request online.

There are over 12 million acres of BLM Public Lands in Arizona to visit, enjoy and explore along with 17.5 million subsurface acres within the state. Camping is free on BLM land, but there are fees and permits required for certain recreational activities. Aravaipa Canyon, Paria Canyon and Coyote Buttes are three areas that require visiting/camping permits in order to preserve the areas' delicate ecosystem. When visiting BLM, please practice "Leave No Trace" etiquette as this land is rarely maintained on a regular basis.
