Haak'u Cuervo's  Canyon Camp is located at an elevation of almost 6,000 feet in the historic 80,000 acre Juniperwood Ranch land preserve which at one time was home to Arizonas largest cattle ranch. Its adjacent to the Kaibab National Forest and Prescott National Forest. You will be immersed by ancient Juniper trees with twisted and gnarled branches large enough to stand on as well as  Pinyon Pine. There are also several varieties of cactus, agave and yucca. The camp is set along the side of a red rock canyon that offers a great opportunity for hiking. The trails are abundant in the area as are scenic drives. Just the drive to camp from the entry of Juniperwood Ranch is an experience of a lifetime. I do suggest 4 wheel drive to get here or atleast a high clearance vehicle. I have personally driven it in a car many times but I wouldn't recommend it because the roads can become more difficult in the event of a monsoon. 

There is really no need to leave the camp if you're seeking a sanctuary for refuge and relaxation however if you have a few days and are ready to be adventurous, the Grand Canyon is just 75 miles away.  Historic Williams, a great stop along Old Rt. 66 is only 45 minutes away with Bearizona and the Grand Canyon Railway as well as a few fishing and paddling lakes. Flagstaff with its forested hiking trails and the Snowbowl is just over an hour away and the Red Rocks of Sedona is under 2 hours but will probably take longer because of all the amazing things to stop and explore on your way there. You will also be just over an hour drive of Prescott, Arizona's territorial capitol which has a welcoming downtown or you could head over to the mile high Wild West mining town of Jerome that overlooks the Verde Valley.

Haak'u Cuervo is  a quiet and peaceful place to relax after your day adventures. It's an off grid property with abundant wildlife all around. Elk, deer, antelope, bobcats and coyote have roamed through here. However one of the best features are the magical night skies- some of the clearest in the nation with almost zero light pollution. Bring your binoculars and enjoy and evening on the edge of a canyon gazing at the brilliant stars and who knows maybe some flying object you can't identify.  The nights are always cool at our elevation so you may want to get that campfire going and enjoy the company of family and friends before returning to your tents.

The site was awesome! Lots of space to set up camp, plenty of seating, fire pit and table made any “lounge time” around the campsite comfy. The view over the canyon is AMAZING! There was plenty of space to adventure to see more of the area. The best part of the stay was talking with Sarah and Charles! They were super friendly and gave us some cool history about the land. Plus we got some great tips on good coffee/shopping areas near the campsite. 11 out of 10 would definitely recommend!

Let me at least start off by saying how wonderful our hosts were. Charles and Sarah were more than accommodating from start to finish. Charles met us at the entrance to make sure we had the right directions to their secluded property, and then, Sarah was there to make sure we didn’t miss the turn in. The drive was a good twenty minutes off a paved road, but that’s what you’d expect when you’re booking a a TRUE getaway! Their happy family lives there and are so knowledgeable about the rich history and culture of Juniper Woods Ranch: It really helps you to feel connected to the land. Needless to say the views are more than spectacular. Our campsite overlooked a canyon on their property which served as a beautiful setting for the sunset every day. They had also set up a wash station for us free of charge along with their compost restroom which was very nice to have. We bought a couple bundles of fire wood which provided nice warmth in the cool, fall nights. They also offer other amenities if you find yourself needing them. I would recommend them to anyone passing through the area. I’m glad we decided on camping on their property and hope to go back soon! You won’t be disappointed. There’s so much to say about this wonderful spot, but words can only tell so much.

The site is great everything you need for a getaway. The view was amazing all the nature sounds were great and watching the sunset and sunrise from the over view was so awesome!

I would highly recommend this site for your next camping trip they have so much space to roam around and explore on their property and only an hour 20 min to Grand Canyon.

Thank you Sarah and Charles for a great experience!!

Absoutley amazing. I stayed at site 2 and you can see the drop off as soon as you pull up. I had big lifted trunda and it fit snugged right where we were camping. Sarah & Charles were the best hosts. Gave us a little backround on the area and there lives. Amazing and very genuine people . I also brought my 2 dogs and they loved everything. Alots of trees also so i didnt really need my canopy. The Stars were the best part. You can the whole MILKY WAY.

Wanna get far away? Only hear the wind and be in raw nature? This is the place.
Coming off a long road trip this is exactly what I needed. Sarah and Charles where warm and inviting and made sure I had everything if I needed it.
Even my big ProMaster made it up! But a truck be the way to go!

The site is awesome! I love the ridges one view, hard to get that at most campsites. The hosts were awesome, they actually filled us in on checking out the Williams Christmas parade, which we loved! They lead us into the site as it was dark, which was much appreciated. It can be slightly confusing so definitely follow their directions.
As far as the site, the fire pit was perfect and they had a hand washing station set up on at the picnic table (has chairs!) the compost tool Lief was super easy to use and discreet (LNT!). Didn’t use the shower (way too cold). Plenty of space for our 4person size tent, flat ground. If you get a chance to chat with Charles, do so! He has so much knowledge on the wildlife and area. Definitely must stay!
