We stay here at least once a year and have always found it to be first class. Great place to camp if like to go wine tasting in old town Cottonwood. Also close to Sedona and Jerome. Dump Station at entrance. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This state park has paved roads and back in sites and is very easy to navigate. The site we stayed on had electric and water and was approximately 80 ft long. There was no internet or cable but there is so much to do in this area this was not an issue. The spacing between the sites were perfect. Overall this s a very large nice state park to stay in when visiting the Cotton Wood/Sedona areas. We would definitely come back here again.

We stayed with our rv group for three days. The sites were level, easy to access and very clean. The only thing we would add is an area for group meetings. We have stayed at Dead Horse Ranch SP twice and are going back there again next year. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here with a small rally of 8 coaches. Lots to see and do in the area. Everyone commented on how much they liked the park. The park hosts were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The park itself was very clean and well maintained. There are many hiking trails throughout the park and also horseback riding is available at one of the several lagoons. We plan to have another rally here next year. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Some of the many fun things to see and do while camping at Dead Horse Ranch State Park: Visit the mining town of Jerome. Tour the Copper Art Museum (pets welcome). Shop, dine and do a little wine tasting in Old Town Cottonwood. Ride the Verde Valley Railway. Explore the ruins at Tuzigoot National Monument. Take a drive up to the scenic, artsy town of Sedona.

Such a beautiful park with lots of hiking trails, biking, horseback riding and fishing in the 3 large ponds. The entire park is kept clean with rangers on site for questions and aid if needed. No wi-fi but who needs it when the outdoors has so much to offer. Close to Sedona, Jerome and several national monuments. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks and just loved it! For the first eight days we stayed in the Quail loop which was $35 a night. The next six nights we stayed in the red tail hawk loop which was only $30 a night. We liked the red tail just as well as the quail loop and if we'd known about the difference in price, we would've stayed there the entire time. There's ample room between each site so it feels very private and quiet. Roads roads are paved as well as your site and are very level. The only thing I can say about the red tail loop is it would be very hot during summer months, as there is little to no shade. Where as the quail loop has more mature trees and shrubs. There are tons of trails which we and our dog just loved! The only thing I wasn't crazy about is most of the trails were considered multi use, meaning they were for both hikers and horseback riders. So you really have to watch your step and watch out for horse poop! Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Bath houses were a bit old but very clean. We didn't use the showers but checked them out. Not sure why the stalls didn't even have a ledge or shelf for you to put your soap and other toiletries. At the quail loop we had a pull thru site, and a back in at red tail. We loved this state park and hated leaving! Oh, and the mountain views are gorgeous! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Be sure to visit Pizzaria Bocce in Old Town Cottonwood! Their pizza is amazing and some of the best we have ever had. Also visit Mai Thai on Main for outstanding Thai food!

Booked reservations online about 2 months in advance and was lucky to get 3 spots in a row in the quail loop. We had 2 pull throughs and a back in. All spots were very level. The backin site had a height restriction and they were not kidding. We were just barley able to get the trailer under the tree branch. The camp ground was clean and the hosts were very nice. The lake and river is close by and there are lots of trials to hike on. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a beautiful spot! Sites are large, easy to get into, some with amazing views. The lagoons are lovely and there is much to do. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because there's no sewer. But there is a dump station right at the entrance. Verizon reception is good, but not ATT. Still, well worth the price of admission! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful state park minutes from the cute town of Cottonwood. If you like mountain views stay in Quail Loop sites 1-10. No sewer but nice bathrooms and easy dump station. A short 30 minute drive to Sedona with lots to see along the way. We stayed 2 nights and wish it was longer! We will go back some day! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice place in a lot of ways. Leveling issues are possible and roads in Quail loop a little tight. My big complaint deals with day use areas. They close them at 7pm, actually made us leave at 6:45. Never experienced a day use area not being available to overnight campers. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Coopers Hawk Loop, water and electric only. Most all other reviewers have covered the many amenities offered in this park. This site (101) is paved with dirt/gravel on side area where picnic table and fire pit are located. Plenty of room for our 40' MH with 4 slides; we did unhook our tow; it fit nicely across the back of the site. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, but they looked very clean when we checked them out. Several camp hosts clean the sites and bathrooms daily. This was our second time to camp here; we'll definitely stay again. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.
