West Sedona Designated Dispersed Camping & Day-use

Image of west Sedona

These designated dispersed camping areas, slated to open summer 2022, will provide eight main areas for dispersed camping that will accommodate up to an estimated 200 campsites in total.

This system will protect natural resources, keeps the landscape being dotted by the creation of dispersed campsites, and still provides many places for visitors to camp and enjoy the beauty of west Sedona.

Dispersed camping in these designated areas will remain free and are on a first-come, first-served basis that allow up to 14 days of camping. Dispersed camping outside of these designated sites and all campfires will be prohibited when full implementation is complete in the summer of 2022. For more information on how this area was designated, the public scoping process, and the Decision Memo, please visit the West Sedona Designated Dispersed Camping and Day-use Area project page.
