Prescott National Forest

Formidable place names such as Grief Hill, Yellowjacket Gulch, Lonesome Pocket, Battle Flat, and Horsethief Basin and a deep-rooted southwestern history make Prescott National Forest a great destination to feel like you have traveled back in time.  With nearly 1.25 million acres to explore, outdoor recreation possibilities abound.  The high elevations of the Bradshaw Mountains provide a break from the summer heat and the Sonoran Desert provides a wide assortment of desert life.  Between the two is everything from ancient pine forest to expansive grasslands.

Motorized travel free wilderness areas are interspersed with networks of logging roads to provide access to the deepest areas of the forest areas.  Isolated, primitive camping is available with a permit from a ranger station or one of the self issue kiosks.  A full listing of established campsites is available on the matrix on the back page of the map.

With attractions such as the Bradshaw Mountains, Sharlot Hall Museum, Jerome Ghost Town, Verde River, Connell and Juniper Mountians, Granite Mountain Wilderness, Crown King and Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, there is no shortage of exploring to do.
