If you're looking for a family and pet-friendly RV campground in central Arizona, one that is close to both urban comfort and the untamed wilderness, then Black Canyon Campground is exactly what you need. After more than four decades of providing camping opportunities to the general public, Black Canyon Campground knows exactly what you're seeking and how to provide it. This RV park has a solar-heated outdoor swimming pool and a hot tub to match, plus books, games and movies you can borrow, and a playground and doggie park for everyone in your travel crew. You can use the laundry facilities as soon as you arrive and freshen up using the restrooms and showers.
Individual sites have cable TV for your enjoyment and Wi-Fi so you can web surf or catch up on email (or both). You can choose between 30 amp and 50 amp electricity when you book your site, and you can also stock up on propane or anything else you require at the camp convenience store. Sites can be rented by the day, week, or month, or for longer terms if you require a seasonal stay; the camp offers a number of discount programs, and you can contact them to find out more information about their rates and discounts. There are cabins for rent as well, and some of the sites are designed for tent camping.
As you move outwards from Black Canyon Campground, you'll find a number of attractions worth taking a closer look at. Wranglers Roost, located just a short distance south near New River, was a stagecoach stop in the late 1800s but was converted to a dude ranch in the 1930s and ran successfully during the Great Depression. Today it serves as a resort and horse rescue operation. Sunset Point, north and just shy of Bumble Bee, is a highway rest stop where you can picnic or take in the sunrises and sunsets. From the point, you'll have an unrestricted view of the Hoodoos, the most famous of them being Thor's Hammer, plus there are trails where you can hike. You'll also have a chance to watch the resident bird species such as swallows, ravens, and hawks soar beside the vibrant orange, yellow, and red limestone cliffs.
RV rentals in Yavapai County are how you will experience the Arizona countryside in comfort. Take advantage of this and start by heading to Phoenix Sonoran Preserve, a short 25-mile ride away. The preserve is a cultivated hiking area with well-marked trails and signs providing necessary information and points of interest; it's located on the outskirts of Phoenix where you can indulge yourself when your hike is done. Most of the trails are rated an easy level and shouldn't pose a difficulty for the average person, but remember to pack water.
Lake Pleasant Regional Park is a year-round recreation area where you can combine both land and water activities. The lake is a reservoir that draws water from the Lower Colorado River and diverts it to more arid places, causing the lake level to fluctuate at times (it's typically lower in the fall and higher in the spring). Bring your RV rental with you, and you can enjoy its creature comforts between going for swims and hiking. Fishing is allowed on the lake, and if you decide to picnic, you can prepare something fancy in your rental RV and then enjoy it outdoors while taking in the incredible scenery provided by the landscape and the resident wildlife.
Prescott National Forest is where you'll want to head in your RV rental if you want to experience a wide diversity of landscapes. At its lowest levels, the park consists of desert terrain which then transitions into chaparral as the elevation rises. Proceed higher, and you'll run into tree stands of piñon pine, juniper, and Ponderosa pine. The park was once renowned for gold panning in Lynx Creek, but today it's a popular location for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. If you feel a need for an adrenaline fix, you can also go tubing, canoeing, or kayaking in the Verde River (tubes can be rented if you don't have one with you). Rock climbing and hang gliding are also allowed.
When its time to turn your attention to urban attractions, Prescott is a mid-size city that was the capital of the Arizona Territory in 1864. This city has a historic downtown core with numerous buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There are cafes and restaurants, boutiques, summer events, and plenty of shade in the courthouse square. The city is also the home of the annual Prescott Frontier Days celebration which includes a parade, a rodeo, and fireworks, and is one of many events that take place here.
Morristown is within the borders of Surprise and has chartered sailing adventures, paddleboard rental businesses, and much more to offer. You can take a ride on a horse-drawn carriage through the Sonoran Desert or to Old Wickenburg while listening to the driver recount the history and culture of the area. Morristown has a long list of restaurants that will satisfy your appetite, including venues focusing on Mexican and Armenian cuisines, among others. One of the local seafood establishments has an eye-catching view of Lake Pleasant.
Whatever you're looking for in the friendly state of Arizona, you're likely to find it, and camping at Black Canyon Campground is where you should begin.
