Beautiful location, quiet, but come prepared to dry camp. No water available for RVs, no dump station. Closest facilities in Flagstaff. 50% senior discount price is $10. Friendly host but just 1 for 40+ sites, 2 Restroom buildings with flush toilets and sinks, clean. Drinking water at RR buildings to fill a container. Close to Sunset Crater entrance and easy walking distance to its visitor center. Peaceful, no TV reception or cell service unless you hike up the mountain or out near the highway. We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Sunset crater national monument is right there. Shopping in Flagstaff at mall/shopping center, about 10 miles. Fascinating geology with lava and cinders everywhere under tall Ponderosa pines. About 7000' elevation so nights are chilly.

Very scenic and quiet spot, located on the Bonito Lava Flow just outside Sunset Crater Natl Monument. All paved spots, some back-in and some pull-offs. Most seemed small to medium size. We took one of the longer pull-offs and needed it all for our truck and 23 ft trailer. Park had just opened for the season, so one of the 3 restrooms was still closed, but midweek this was no problem. Totally dry camping, with no cell signal whatsoever. Limited water, so they ask that you not fill RV tanks. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, as well as Sunset Crater and the Wupatki ruins. Rate reflects Senior Pass rate. We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Travel Trailer.

A great place. Ranger programs weekend evenings. All paved roads and sites. Hosts extremely helpful and they enforce the rules, which are simply common sense. Rate reflects Golden Age Pass. We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

Forget the Parking lot RV parks and stay here if you are in the area. This is a beautiful place in the huge pines of Flagstaff AZ. Restrooms are clean and there are 3 of them, no showers. Large spaces for tents or RV's. No hookups, water or dump that I saw, so come ready, and enjoy the quietest night of your life, breath in the pine scented forest, take the short walk to the Sunset Crater NP Visitor Center adjacent to this campground. I just love this place. The price of $9 is senior rate, normally it is $18. With the exception of the tall pines, everything here looked very new. We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

Very simple park, good for a couple of nights. It rained on us both days but they are in monsoon season, so it was to be expected. The hosts were very helpful. We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

This camp is in the Coconino National Forest. To add to the previous reviews, this is a lovely sylvan camp, well maintained, with helpful hosts. There are around 15 pull-through sites and a few are set up for wheelchairs. We enjoyed the drive and photography opportunities in Wupatki National Monument, as well as into Flagstaff Old Town. We would definitely return. We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

This is a great "dry camping" type campground in the cool pines. Located about 10 miles north of Flagstaff on Hwy 89. Campground is adjacent to the Sunset Crater Visitor Center. The $9 rate reflects Golden age pass otherwise $18 night without the pass. Sites and roadways are all paved. We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful, well maintained National Forest Service Campground adjacent to Sunset Crater Volcano and Wupatki National Monuments. Sites are very large with lots of space between them. There are pull-along sites for very large rigs. Restrooms only, no showers. Ice and firewood are available. Good paved roads; concrete paths to restrooms and around picnic tables. Across road from Sunset Crater Volcano Visitor Center (16 miles north of Flagstaff on US-89). We camped at Bonito Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.
