After my visit to Sedona and Camp Verde, I traveled south to Prescott. I swung through briefly ten years ago on my year long road trip around the USA, and wanted to revisit. Thanks to a National Geographic guide I met on a Mongolia trip, I had insider’s information on where to camp.
Camping on Thumb Butte Road
Liam, who went to college in Prescott, suggested I camp anywhere on Thumb Butte Road. It is just outside of Prescott and was a great suggestion! Small, designated pullouts lined the potholed dirt road. And it was just steep and rutty enough to keep the big rigs out.HAPPY HIKING!
