Booked reservations online about 2 months in advance and was lucky to get 3 spots in a row in the quail loop. We had 2 pull throughs and a back in. All spots were very level. The backin site had a height restriction and they were not kidding. We were just barley able to get the trailer under the tree branch. The camp ground was clean and the hosts were very nice. The lake and river is close by and there are lots of trials to hike on. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

My new favorite place. Great location to stay at and explore the area. Park is large and clean. Had a pull thru slot and worked great for us. Not a lot of shade. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful spot! Sites are large, easy to get into, some with amazing views. The lagoons are lovely and there is much to do. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because there's no sewer. But there is a dump station right at the entrance. Verizon reception is good, but not ATT. Still, well worth the price of admission! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful state park minutes from the cute town of Cottonwood. If you like mountain views stay in Quail Loop sites 1-10. No sewer but nice bathrooms and easy dump station. A short 30 minute drive to Sedona with lots to see along the way. We stayed 2 nights and wish it was longer! We will go back some day! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice place in a lot of ways. Leveling issues are possible and roads in Quail loop a little tight. My big complaint deals with day use areas. They close them at 7pm, actually made us leave at 6:45. Never experienced a day use area not being available to overnight campers. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Coopers Hawk Loop, water and electric only. Most all other reviewers have covered the many amenities offered in this park. This site (101) is paved with dirt/gravel on side area where picnic table and fire pit are located. Plenty of room for our 40' MH with 4 slides; we did unhook our tow; it fit nicely across the back of the site. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, but they looked very clean when we checked them out. Several camp hosts clean the sites and bathrooms daily. This was our second time to camp here; we'll definitely stay again. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park, well maintained and sites are large and some wooded. Trails to ponds are great for dog walking. Very good location for enjoying Sedona, Cottonwood and Jerome. Blazin M ranch next door has a wonderful dinner show. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice state park with paved roads, fishing ponds and several spacious camping loops. There is a long, level area near the front gate for hooking or unhooking a toad, but people often park cars there as well. Most sites have nice views and privacy. The bathrooms were sparkling clean! I noticed that water escapes from the shower stalls, but someone must have been meticulous about mopping it up because it never lasted long. We also observed the camp hosts cleaning and raking sites between users, and generally being visible and available. There are a number of pleasant but not spectacular hiking and mountain bike trails. In order to stay 5 nights we had to move twice (three different sites). We noticed this was a common theme. Every morning it seemed that 25% of the camp was moving to another site. Perhaps there is a different system of reservations that would help with this problem?? Otherwise we love this place, and I guess lots of others do as well! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice Arizona State Park. Great level all paved trailer pad. Table and fire pit on dirt. Water and electricity. Pay attention to site arrangement and try and back up to hill behind you. Close to Cottonwood and Sedona. Would definitely stay again. Good Verizon service and satellite worked well. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Located just north of the city of Cottonwood. Nice State Park with many sites. We stayed through a weekend, Campground was full with locals and social groups. Great hot water in showers. Great hiking trails around lake and along Verde River. Good base for exploring Sedona, Jerome, etc. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in Quail Loop Site 22. Our site was too close to site 23, but we had friends in site 21, which had great spacing. We used their campfire ring. Sites were clean and fairly easy to back into, although I don't think there is a level site in this loop. Water and electric comes with the site. A nice Dump Station at entrance to park. The CG was full and most people were quiet, however there was one very noisy group staying up and making noise well past the curfew. Attempting to contact any of the hosts about this was a failure, they were awakened, but refused to answer the door. Nice hiking trails, easy access to town and overall for us, a pretty good weekend.

Lots of cool things to do in the Verde Valley. Drive up Mingus Mountain to Jerome, an historic mining town, visit Cottonwood for antique shops, take a ride on the Verde Valley RR and see Bald Eagles, visit Tuzigoot, or take a day trip to Sedona.

This is a very nice state park campground. It would rate higher if it had sewer hookups. The sites are paved but most are not level. We had no problems though. Park roads are easy to navigate for big rigs. Generally pretty quiet during the week but busy on weekends. 14 day stay limit. Verizon service was 2-3 bars but the data throughput was not that great.
