Fellow Snowbirds, family campers, adventure dirtbags - Prescott welcomes you! There is an abundance of places to fall asleep under the stars and awake when the sun rises. And what's even better is that you can camp almost year round! There are times of the year when Prescott may get an occasional snowfall, but the climate here is as moderate as it gets, while still actually having mild seasons. There are a couple of things to keep in mind when camping in Prescott: It is incredibly important to pay attention to the fire alerts and restrictions when camping in Prescott - or all of Arizona on that matter. If you have a fire, make sure you put it out completely, which means there is zero chance of it starting back up. This is a MUST.
Prescott National Forest and Prescott Basin have a high percentage of wildland-urban interface, a mixture of undeveloped and developed land. The popularity of the Prescott Basin, has contributed to resource impacts such as accelerated soil erosion, damage or loss of vegetation, displaced wildlife, increased fire risk, and accumulation of trash and human waste, especially in areas of dispersed camping. Please be respectful. Make as little of a foreign footprint as possible and make sure to pick up after yourself. Do NOT leave your trash.
