Just outside the historic birth place of route 66 you will find the quaint small town of Seligman Arizona. Just about 12 miles from town your adventure begins. Getting to the destination will take you over 4 miles of dirt road. An appropriate vehicle is recommended especially if traveling the roads during rain or snow. Once you arrive you will be out and away from the crowds with night skies thick with stars. This is an off grid location in the wilderness great for hiking, horseback riding, ATV or just sitting and enjoying the scenery around you. The property is 40 acres of high desert forest and a deer drink. It sits next to national forest. While currently only hosting an RV and a Tent site, the entire property is available for you to explore. Go find the authentic log cabin and play some horseshoe. Wander over to the original homestead site and imagine living the simple life in the woods. If you want to venture further, the national forest is adjacent to the property. Night skies in this area are amazing and there are miles of roads to explore on ATV or horse.
The hosted sites sit at the entrance of the property for easy convenient setup. This is a dry camp with no septic, power or water hookups. Please read the directions section carefully and understand this is an off road adventure. The RV site is best suitable for a trailer no larger than about 23 feet. The tent site is suitable for tent maximum of about 12 feet wide because of trees. Depth is about 20 feet.
In addition to having a beautiful camp site the location is central to many day trip activities. Seligman is a small town with unique quirky shops and places to eat. Grand Canyon Caverns, the deer farm, Bearazona and road trips to the Grand Canyon, Williams and even Sedona are always a good time. As we have just started hosting, please check back on this listing as we continue to upgrade these sites with amenities and add future sites. Our goal is to open the cabins as well, but we first need to get some renovations complete. If you are interested in staying in them you can send me a message to discuss.
Please Note: (ROAD CONDITIONS MAY CHANGE)
While the roads are easily traveled with favorable weather, the roads become slick when wet and there are rough areas which make having sufficient ground clearance a plus. One section, known as the widow-maker can be a challenge in inclement weather conditions. A car is not recommended with the ideal being a 4 wheel drive. I have a stock Toyota 4 runner (2 wheel drive) and it takes me anywhere I want to go except in rainy or snow. Check your weather forecast.
Please Note: (THIS IS A WILDERNESS ADVENTURE)
This is a beautiful place but it is out in the wild. Stay on the trails and roads and respect the natural beauty. It is easy to get lost if you not familiar with wilderness hiking and wildlife is roaming wild. While deer and jackrabbits are the more docile creatures, the forest is home for coyotes, mountain lion, etc. Don't approach the wildlife, no matter how cute. THEY ARE WILD!
And finally, this is high dessert terrain. Beautiful trees as well as cactus abound. Staying on the paths and roadways along with appropriate footwear will help ensure a safer experience. Large and small cactus are part of the beautiful fauna that encapsulates the land. Its easy to miss the small ones or accidentally bump into the large ones so be careful and stay on the trails. Yes they hurt when you get stuck.

It was the most beautiful camping I’ve ever done. It was a rough trail in but once there it was amazing. A lot of wildlife and beautiful scenery. Mike was great with communication.
