Pitch your tent on our six acres and take a hike around Spruce Mountain and Prescott National Forest. The property has a gold-bearing creek that runs it and is full of pine trees, cedars, agaves and scrub oak forest. You'll likely see ringtail cats, spotted owls, Mt lions, javalina, horned toads and more wildlife.

We're within a 1 hour drive to Prescott, Jerome, Sedona and 2 hours to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. It's in the exact center of AZ. 

Great climbing nearby on Granite Dells, Granite Mt, Thumb Butte.

This is a great place for families and groups, as there is only 1 campsite so you'll have privacy. There is a composting toilet building that is available.  

This is a wilderness type place that I built and off grid homestead at. I'm often not home, so you have the place to yourself. I'm the only person that uses the road, which has been erased from official maps. 

GPS will NOT get you here, so please call me ahead of time. The google map is accurate on photo view. When you get here you will see a barn and a two story Octagonal small home.

Six acres of goodness tucked against Prescott National Forest. Lovely views and exploring opportunities at every turn. Listen to the wind blow through the canyon as you breathe in the rich smell of pine. A truly magical experience in the mountains of Arizona. 4x4 is a must to get to this site.
