Pitch your tent, hike around Spruce Mt. hang in Prescott National Forest... ringtail cats, spotted owls, mt lions, javalina, horned toads all still alive. Go into Prescott, Jerome, Sedona... all within 1 hr... Phx and Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, within 2 hrs... It's in the exact center of AZ. Great climbing et al on Grinite Dells, Granite Mt, Thumb Butte call to discuss... Call me and ask questions... particularly about how to get there.. Many have tried and failed... It used to be the wilderness... now neighbors are 1/4 mile away. This is a 6 Acre site.. 1 Hipcamp booking at a time. Good place for family, or group. There is a cabin and Barn that is not yet available. There is a composting toilet building that is available.  This is a wilderness type place that I built and off grid homestead at. Most days you will not see anyone.. I'm the only person that uses the road, which has been erased from official maps. GPS will NOT get you here, so call... The google map is acurate on photo view. When you get here you will see a barn and a two story Octagonal small home. I'm often not home, so you have the place to yourself. Gold bearing creek runs through middle.... very happening in spring or after monsoons get going. Tall pine trees, cedars, agaves and scrub oak forest

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.
