Pine Flat Campground

Area Status: Open
Entrance drive into Pine Flat Campground

Pine Flat Campground in scenic Oak Creek Canyon is one of the Forest's most popular campgrounds. The scenery is unmatched, the stream is stocked with trout. If the fishing aren't biting, you can always go swimming, hiking or birdwatching. Slide Rock State Park (listed in Life Magazine as one of the nation's ten best swimming holes) and the thriving resort town of Sedona are only a short drive away. It comes as no surprise this area is so popular.

Campsites are located in a shady stand of ponderosa pines in the upper reaches of the canyon. Many of the campsites are located right on the banks of Oak Creek, and none are very far from it. There are several hiking trails in the vicinity. Some lead up the canyon slopes to offer good views of the surrounding scenery. The creek is bordered with paths that lead along its picturesque course offering great bird watching and good fishing.
