Roaming the Roads: Sedona & Xscapers!

  • Boondocking in Sedona

    Sunny skies, upper 70's during the days and 50's overnight with Sedona views are hard to beat. What could make it better? No reservations needed and we camped for free (a.k.a. 'boondocking')! Curious about the location? The area can be found HERE.

    About the site

    We arrived in the early afternoon and the area was busy. This is a well-known spot for ATV's and they were there in abundance. The road is dirt and can be quite bumpy in spots, however we saw all types of RVs parked among the many campsites in the area. Most spots for camping have room for several rigs - we only passed by one area that was a solo spot. Be prepared for the red dust and dirt to cover everything! If you are looking for a site that has picturesque views head up at least 3 miles from the main road.

    Another free campsite, this one was located at the Navajo National Monument in Shonto, AZ. We stayed at the Sunset View Campground, which is one of two campsites on location. This area is restricted to rigs smaller than 28' long. There is a restroom and a dumpster on site. First come, first served - no reservations.

    We arrived at the beginning of the season, so we were not able to sign up for one of the guided ranger tours down into the cliff dwellings, but we were able to take a brief walk down to an overlook. No dogs are allowed on the paths, but it is completely handicapped accessible.

    Moab here we come!

    The Xscapers RV group had a convergence in Moab, Utah with a few spots left open, so we signed up and made our way to an abandoned airstrip just south of the city where the event was being held.

    More than 130 rigs are parked along this runway and it is a sight to see! We are all boondocking for the week in this location and the opening night potluck was amazing!

    We are looking forward to a great week in Moab and a trip to Arches National Park is #definitely on the list!
