Arizona is one of our favorite places to dry camp. There are so many diverse options. Desert and forest, it has it all. Plus in each location there is a lot to see and do and if you love the outdoors as much as we do, then you are entertained at all times. Plus, there is an area for all four season. When it is too hot in the north, head south and when it's too hot in the south, head north.
Free Camping in Arizona
Some of our favorite camping spots are as far north as Sedona and as far south as Tucson. Each different and unique in their own right.
This location is the best if you want to get to Grand Canyon National Park. The area provides a good base camp and the nearby town has a Mexican restaurant that is worth stopping at.
This was such a fun spot. We met up with friends and you can walk for miles right outside your door. Close to town there there is so much to do, it's worth hanging out for a week or two.
Everyone has heard of Sedona, Arizona. One of the most beautiful places in Arizona and it has a lot of boondocking to offer. Then once there you have choices of hiking and biking trails that rival the best in the US. Plus it has some of the most beautiful sunsets we have ever seen.

You can see the progression of change in Arizona. The north is forested, central Arizona is desert but has the beautiful reds and then southern Arizona has the wide open brown desert.
