Chavez Crossing Campground Review

 This summer, in the AZ Trip, I got the chance, among other things, to go camping at the Chavez Crossing Campground in Sedona, Arizona.

I have not been camping in the last 10 years, so I had no idea what to expect or if I will enjoy it and I was pretty sure I forgot everything about setting up a tent.

Truth is that setting up the tents was not that hard (it was a team effort) and that going camping can be both fun and relaxing. I totally enjoyed the two days we spent there.

Things to know about the Chavez Crossing Campground:

  • It is a clean campground.
  • Plenty of space for camping and for outdoor activities near the tents.
  • The Oak Creek flows through the Chavez Crossing Campground and if the weather is good, you can even go for a swim.
  • There are plenty of things to do and places to see, close to the campground.
  • The bathroom/lavatory areas can be improved, in my opinion.
  • There is some sort of a policy on playing music on the campground, so make sure to check that, if you are thinking about music, fun and S’mores.


When camping at the  Chavez Crossing Campground, here are some ideas on what you can explore nearby:

  • Oak Creek –  the Oak Creek flows through the Chavez Crossing Campground, so you can enjoy it by day and if you set up your tent in the right place, you will enjoy the sound of water flowing when going to sleep.

  • Cathedral Rock Trail – the trail is not that far, and is definitely worth experiencing it. Read more about Cathedral Rock on this post.
  • Downtown Sedona – you must visit Sedona while camping at the Chavez Crossing Campground. This city is simply charming!

  • Bell Rock Trail – I had no time to explore this trail as well, but it’s on my list for when I will be visiting again.

The Chavez Crossing Campground was a lovely place, but after two days, it was time to hit the road and head towards Grand Canyon.

The Starbucks coffee from Ignacia was exactly what I needed to call my morning perfect – thank you, Ignacia!
