Sacred Springs

5 sites · Lodging, Tents8 acres · Lake Montezuma, AZ
Sacred Springs A phenomenal, sacred riparian corridor. Sacred Springs offers a retreat for seekers of serenity and spiritual renewal. Just up the creek from the iconic Montezuma Castle National Monument and down from the enchanting Montezuma Well. Your journey will begin long before you arrive, as you enter into the sacred river valley and embark on the primitive road that leads to our desert oasis. From our campsites, you'll have the remarkable opportunity to witness the echoes of the past and the pulse of the present, as the nearby I-17 highway traces the path of this ancient route. As travelers journey along this prehistoric corridor, their footsteps echo those of countless generations who traversed these lands long before us. —Driving atop the mesa, you'll feel the powerful frequency of the desert enveloping you and by the time you reach Sacred Springs you’ll sense, the immense potential for transformation and connection that awaits you.— Our campsites have breathtaking, panoramic sunrise and sunset views overlooking a powerful confluence of Wet Beaver Creek and Dry Beaver Creek. While Sacred Springs offers a breathtaking retreat amidst the beauty of nature, it's important to note the inherent dangers of our unique landscape. Perched on a cliff 60 feet above the creek, our property boasts stunning views and serene surroundings—but it also requires vigilance and care. The terrain here is steep and unforgiving, reminding us to slow down and savor each moment mindfully. (Please, remain on trails at all times.) With every step, it's crucial to remain fully present, ensuring proper footing and safe navigation at all times. —As you explore the wonders of Sacred Springs, let this be an opportunity to hone your senses and cultivate a deeper connection with the earth beneath your feet. Embrace the challenge of traversing the rugged terrain, knowing that every cautious step brings you closer to the heart of this sacred sanctuary.— This land holds the echoes of a prehistoric ancient community that thrived right here, utilizing irrigation for farming and dwelling in cliffside abodes. Picture yourself immersed in the rich history of the Hisat'sinom, sitting in a cave dwelling pondering about the daily lives of the ancients. You'll have the opportunity to reconnect with yourself, and to heal. Relax fully immersed in a natural riparian corridor as you hike along the creek, find your peace in one of our hammock swings next to the creek, or witness the breathtaking sunrise and sunset, from the best seat in Arizona. —With mindfulness and respect for the land, may your visit be one of discovery, growth, and profound reverence for the natural world.

Beach camping in Arizona guide

Overview

Don't let the desert and lack of ocean shores fool you, beach camping is actually possible in Arizona. You may find cabins, glamping tents, RV and tent campsites just steps from rivers, lakes, and ponds. Head up to the Mogollon Rim to find 10 high-altitude lakes for a cool summertime getaway. Hiking, biking, fishing, and paddling opportunities abound. For a desert lake vacation, Saguaro Lake, Canyon Lake, Patagonia Lake, Lee's Ferry, and Apache Lake are popular destinations. Arizona state parks, national parks, and national forests offer public campgrounds with beach camping, while private campsites take you to hidden gems or put you a short drive to the shores. Other destinations include Lake Mead, Lake Havasu, or the Colorado River. Beach camping in Arizona may be a luxury glamping experience, with wifi, hot tubs, and deluxe patios. Or, get away from it all in a rustic campsite, just steps from the water.
