Beautiful camping in a mesquite grove, close to the Wild and Scenic Verde River. The host, Gene, is welcoming and quick to respond to any questions. Plenty of places to hang a hammock, pitch a tent, and enjoy the quiet of the Prescott National Forest. Grocery store and other amenities are in nearby Camp Verde, but once you get to Otterlimits you won't want to leave!

Pitch your tent under the mesquite.A porch swing hangs from a sturdy mesquite branch.The stargazing is great any time of year, but especially good in winter when the leaves are off the trees.A stone fire pit is surrounded by benches for seating.

Gene and his property were great! Perfect little set up for the a quick camping trip, close enough to the river we could hear it. The pups loved running around the campsite, which was well maintained. I didn't realize the road was within view of the property, but had little impact as the traffic was minimal during the day and non-existant at night. The firepit was a awesome, as it is difficult to find campsite in AZ that you can do so safely. Thanks, Gene-O, we'll be back!

The property is much smaller than I expected. To me, it would feel crowded if another person was also camping there due to lack of privacy. Another strange thing is it feels like you are staying in someone wooded backyard because there is a house right next to the campsite. Im always searching for more privacy whenever I camp. However, there are many plusses to this camping spot. The river is across the street (dirt road) from the site. The river is pretty clean and we saw many wetland birds and butterflies. There is little light pollution so it does get very dark and you can see stars. Unfortunately, we heard dogs barking into the night. We also heard coyotes, but I’ll take them over the barking dogs. There is no bathrooms, so you definitely roughing it here. Enjoyable moments were walking down the road at dusk with no people or cars in sight and relaxing by the river.
