The vibe at Camping at Sedona Oasis
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Sedona Oasis is exactly that- a rustic tent camping spot with unexpected amenities nestled on a hillside over looking an incredibly lush valley just 20 minutes outside Sedona. It’s hard to believe you’re in the desert since the area is surrounded by green vegetation, beautiful wineries, and a creek that we enjoyed swimming in to cool off.
Jim is an affable and informative host, as he is also a tour guide in the area. He showed us the two tent sites- one more private, down the hill with a fire pit which requires a short walk from your car, and one on top of the hill right near the community area. We chose the top spot since we loved the community area. Jim and his adorable puppy Whitepaw live in a camper camper that is right behind the community area, but I felt we had more than enough privacy.
Our tent site was basically just sandy earth bordering a carved out hillside, which prevented the wind from rattling our tents. The real gem was the community area itself, which is as quirky as it is beautiful. It’s a deconstructed house (Jim removed the roof and walls), revealing exposed beams and arched doorways through which you have an incredible view of the hills and lush vineyards below. There’s a table and chairs for eating or playing games, a beautiful fireplace which we did not use due to the current fire ban, a sink with running water, a grill, a cool zero gravity chair for your lower back aches, and a small indoor area that contains a mini fridge, tons of books and games, and potable drinking water that Jim so thoughtfully provided for us. There is no toilet (you’re welcome to pee on the land), but there is a utility closet with a bucket inside with toilet paper and sawdust for emergencies.
We had a fun night playing cards at the table beneath quaint fairy lights, and spotting constellations once the stars came out. The nighttime is very serene and mild temp wise. In the morning we were treated to birdsong and a stunning sunrise coming over the hillside. This is a special place with lots of personality. Jim has big aspirations for it and I’m excited to see how it evolves. It’s definitely a work in progress, but we found its quirks very endearing. I think it’s a great spot for friends, especially if you’re traveling to Sedona or want to visit the nearby wineries. Thanks again, Jim!
Jim has a wonderful thing going. His vibe is so chill, he has a chill dog, the land is chill, he respect environment. Stay here if you have the opportunity.
With that being said this place isn’t for everyone, it isn’t gamping but isn’t camping, but more so camping you shit in a bucket it’s not bad, you also have like a kitchen area, and a patio area.
Great place for a base camp, go swimming go check out the magic that is Sedona.
We loved it, would stay here again.
This spot is beautiful at sunset and provides a nice place to relax, have drinks and meals, and sleep. We were able to shower and use a refrigerator which were nice features, but there was not any drinking water available, which fell short of our expectations. This is a pleasant place to stay, but make sure you are prepared with your own drinking water and also know that the outdoor shower is pleasant but not private.
My friends and I loved the overall environment of the Sedona Oasis. Some complaints I have are small annoyances-- there wasn't any clean water in the designated vessel (host was away upon arrival) and the hose stopped working so there was no chance to use the outdoor shower. We also weren't clear that it was a shared campsite, not a private site, but that didn't bother us. The location is great though and the setup is cool.
Only stayed for one night, so did not get a chance to meet Jim. The terrain was rather hilly and rocky with a lot of thick brush, though there is some softer flat area for a tent (no good hammock spots). Was difficult to figure out where amenities were as the person who was supposed to be there to help us was not available. All-in-all, was an ok stay, not as nice as expected, but the price is great compared to an Airbnb etc... and very easy to get to Sedona and other attractions.
