RVer report confirms 5 earlier reports from Aug 2016 thru earlier in May 2019, & info provided by USFS. Overnight RV Parking & dispersed camping are allowed on this USFS Land. These GPS Coordinates are at the first turnout on FR 525. NOTE: This USFS Land does not fall under USFS Forest Closure Order # 09-249, which has eliminated camping near the Verde Valley Thousand Trails preserve. There is additional dispersed camping further along FR 525; we recommend scouting this road in toad or tow vehicle before taking RV there. This is a small, circular turnout, too small most rigs to turn around without backing up. Level, or near enough to be easily manageable; unlighted. Appears safe, but has noise from SR 89-A & FR 525 traffic, & from hikers using this spot as a trailhead. Further along FR 525 will have dune buggy traffic during the day. One RVer advised against leaving a camping chair out to reserve your spot, as here this means 'FREE CHAIR - TAKE ME.' 2019 rate: Free.
Directions
From SR 89-A, ~ 8.9 mi NE of jct with SR 260 at Cottonwood, AZ, or ~ 9.7 mi SW of jct with SR 179 at Sedona, AZ, turn NW on FR 525 & go ~ 0.2 mi to gravel turnout on R.
