Yavapai Campground Closing for the Winter
Officials on the Prescott National Forest will be closing Yavapai Campground on November 1, 2022. Located on the Bradshaw Ranger District, in the Granite Basin Recreation Area, it is the most remote of the campgrounds traditionally managed year-round in the Prescott Area. Staffing shortages, both paid and volunteer, the lack of snow removal, remote location, and other factors were considered in making this decision. Yavapai Campground will reopen on April 1, 2023.
Forest visitors are reminded that Alto Pit and White Spar Campground will remain open through the winter. Make your camping reservation online through www.recreation.gov or by calling 1-877-444- 6777. For those visitors who do not need amenities such as restrooms or water, dispersed camping is also available.
