Nice state park with 4 loops. We stayed in a pull thru in the Quail loop at $30/night. Some shade trees, adequate room between sites and good restrooms/showers. The town of Cottonwood is very close with everything you need. Good location about 20 minutes to Sedona in one direction and 40 minutes to Prescott in the other. A nice, quiet spot for a day or longer. We'll return. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very spacious park. Nice pull through sites. Close to showers and restrooms. Gravel drive and level. Some shade more if you're closer to the river. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park. Electric and water at sites w/ dump station at exit/entry. Some sites have beautiful views of Cottonwood below or Jerome on mountain. Nice level sites with plenty of room between. Fishing in ponds and horseback riding is available by concessionaire in park. A nice place to spend a couple of days. Very convenient base to visit both Sedona and Jerome. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Location is close to old town Cottonwood, but feels miles away. Tables, BBQ, fire pit, level asphalt site pads, nicely spaced. Very quiet. We'll come back. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

More shade in lower numbers, nearer the river.

We loved this place and would return frequently if it weren't just a little too far from home for us. We stayed 7 nights. 50-amp service and water worked great. Verizon coverage is great. There are good views from nearly every site and the hosts did a great job of keeping the place clean. Our site was level. Some of the pull-thrus are a little close to each other, but most sites are spacious. The park is just outside of town and there is a dog park just a few minutes from the campground (next to the ballpark you pass on the way in). The hiking trails are nice and the fishing lagoons were very peaceful.

The only reason I gave this a 9 rather than 10 is because the dump site is so far from the campground (approx 1.5 miles round trip). I made 4 trips total with a 15-gallon tote and it took some time! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are widely spaced, and most are long enough for our 40 ft. Rv + toad. Some sites are more level than others (70 and 82 are pretty level). Lower loop has shade, but requires local knowledge on tree interference. Upper loops are open. Water and electric are fine. AT&T LTE is strong. We stayed a week and love the place. It's very quiet, even though close to town. There are many walking and biking trails. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There's an off leash dog park less than a mile from the park.

We were supposed to be here a week, but left after 3-nights. We were in the wooded Quail loop but found it too close to other campers and just not that nice overall. We had spent nights in other AZ state parks before getting here so our expectations were higher than the reality.

Next time we would choose the upper loop- it is sunny, not shady but there is more separation between sites and nice mountain views.

Water and electricity at each site, but no sewer. There are two dump stations at the park entrance/exit.

The park is 15 miles from Sedona which is very beautiful. The town of Cottonwood where the park is located has good stores and such, even a Home Depot. Plus, there's an "old town" section with some surprisingly good restaurants and watering holes. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground. We were in the Coopers Hawk loop which has electric and water. The site we had was long enough to keep our toad attached if we wanted but there is not a lot of room between sites. There was a picnic table and grill/fire pit. There was a wide selection of cable channels but no WI-FI at the campgrounds. There was a restroom/shower house but we did not use them. There is a campground host but only saw him once and waved as he passed on his golf cart. It is easy to get into and out of the park. There is a dump station near the exit to the park. There are numerous trails in different location throughout the park and a place for horseback riding. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful state park just outside of Cottonwood, good hiking trails, spacious sites. This is the second time we've stayed here and probably won't be the last. Verizon and AT&T worked well. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great restaurants / shopping in town, Camelot RV repair just up the road is also a good repair shop, although he seems to have a huge waiting list but is good at fitting in an emergency repair.

Great park in a lovely setting. Many hiking trails in a variety of terrain. They are a little behind on tree trimming, though, so watch overhead clearance in some sites. Good big rig access with many pull through sites. Fire pits and picnic tables at all sites. Firewood for sale at camp host site. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Quail Loop has lots of shade, the other loops do not. The views from Coopers Hawk and Red-tailed Hawk loop sites are pretty spectacular, but no shade at all.

Cottonwood is a big town with all the amenities and services. There is a great off leash town dog park on the road into the park.

Loved this park, lots of hiking trails, spacious sites, good Verizon and AT&T coverage, close to town for groceries / supplies but very quiet and feeling that you are a long way away from civilization in the campground. Loved it, will return, already have a stay planned here next spring. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great location for exploring Sedona and Jerome and the National Monuments in the area.

We had a wonderful stay! Everyone we encountered was very nice & friendly. Our site was a pull through with a picnic table. Very quiet park with trees and very close to Sedona. We would stay again! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of things to do and places to go around this park. Very conveniently located to Sedona!

This probably one of our favorite parks of all time. The views were awesome. The birds were awesome and the hosts were attentive. A storm set in one day when we were out and they rushed over to close our small awnings. Walking in the park was a treat with all the wildlife. We would definitely return and would love to in the spring during bird migration. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park, though a little crowded when full. Some of the campgrounds have more shade than others. We stayed five nights during the Verde Valley Birding Festival. The campground was very quiet at night. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park was good. We had a great place to launch out from and see nearby Jerome, Montezuma's Castle and Sedona. The sites were a little closer than we like but not too bad. It was quiet most of the time, but it was a good change for us to hear the families and kids enjoying camping out instead of the 55+ campgrounds we are normally used to. Some site were a little (I mean little, not severe) uneven so we blocked under our front tire and had no issues. I loved the fact that we had a campfire. We will be back and see more of the area and take more hikes. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.
