Camping in Arizona is a year round activity. Pick a day, any day, and you'll find nice weather somewhere within the state. And lucky for you (and me) there are plenty of places to camp. Arizona abounds in campgrounds. Also, much of the state is public land, which is open to free camping. Beautiful forests, deserts, mountains, and canyons - as well as many lakes and rivers can be found within the state of Arizona. For the most part, the west is still wild in the Grand Canyon State!
I've explored Arizona from the Sonoran Desert lowlands to the high peaks above Flagstaff and still feel I haven't even scratched the surface of Arizona's scenic jewels. I have discovered a few gems though and I'd like to share them with you here.
You'll find several pictures of Arizona along with information on spectacular camping sites. And you'll find even more camping areas in my Free Arizona RV Parks campsite directory. Whether you prefer RV camping, tent camping, car camping, or backpacking you'll typically have several camping options at each location.
P.S. check back often, as I'll be adding several more exciting camping areas with camping tips, and many more pictures of Arizona scenery. And if you know of a camping area and would like to share it click here.
