The reasons to own Flagstaff real estate vary pretty wildly depending on the person, but a common underlying theme seems to be a love of nature. With springtime approaching, now is a great time to highlight the top camping spots around Northern Arizona that you'll have the best access to when you're living in the pines of Flagstaff, Arizona.
1. Grand Canyon
Just a short hour and half north of Flagstaff is the world known Grand Canyon National Park. It just wouldn’t be a list of top camping locations without the Grand Canyon! There are quite a few campsites in and around the Grand Canyon, but there are a couple worth highlighting over the others: Indian Garden Campground and Bright Angel Campground near the South Rim and the less known Cottonwood Camp near the North Rim. These trails are not the faint of heart - adventurers welcoe! There aren't any giant motorhomes to block your view here and drown out the sounds of nature. While you're in the canyon be sure to visit the beautiful Havasu Falls!
2. Lockett Meadow
If you've lived in Flagstaff for awhile, chances are you already know about Lockett Meadow! Just minutes outside of Flagstaff, with trails leading into the famous San Fransisco Peaks, these primitive campsites are a great spot for those who are seeking the feel of true remote mountain camping in Flagstaff. The Inner Basin trail begins here in Lockett Meadow and will provide breathtaking views deep into the peaks and heart of the mountains. The sites cost $14.00 per night with no reservations. There are 17 single unit sites, fire rings, picnic tables and vault toilet (no drinking water).
3. Kaibab Lake Campground
Just 35 miles west of Flagstaff and 60 miles from the Grand Canyon, lies Williams, Arizona. For those of you who prefer "glamping" in your RV or travel trailer, this spot may be what you're looking for. Especially if you're looking for the perfect pit stop on the way to the Grand Canyon. With 60+ campsites surrounding the beautiful, peaceful Kaibab Lake this is a great relaxing retreat. No hookups are offered but there are group areas, a small boat ramp, recycle collection/garbage bins, composting toilets and pit toilets, potable water, wheelchair accessible fishing pier, sewage dump station and even an amphitheater with occasional entertainment! The spot costs $15 per night.
