Campground Review: White Spar Campground, Prescott, Arizona

Campground Review: White Spar Campground, Prescott, Arizona

Why we chose here: We had visitied Prescott before and stayed at the very well run RV park in town Point of Rocks. When we tried to get in there it was full, so this was our back up. It is a National Forest Campground, but is right on the edge of town. 

Location: This is forest land just a few miles from downtown Prescott.

Sites: The sites were excellent quality, with paved slabs and gravel sitting areas with fire rings and picnic tables. They were very well separated from each other. All sites are dry. Some of the sites are more wooded than others. We managed just fine for solar power generation in our spot and several of the sites would be fine. Some of the site are really unlevel, and we had to move from our first choice because of that.  

Facilities: There are pit toilets which we didn't try. There are some trails from the campground. They collect trash but no recycling. 

Groceries: Prescott has Trader Joes, Whole Foods and other grocery stores. 

Reservations: No, this is a FCFS campground.  

Cell coverage / WiFi: We had good coverage in our spot #28 at the back of the campground. There is a dead spot in between town and the camground location, and some of the spots closer to the road may have little or no signal. 

Price paid: $14 (drops to $10 in winter when they turn the water off)

Date of visit: Oct 2016

Would we visit again? Yes definitely. In fact we would choose this over Point of Rocks now, as it is really a perfect mix of nature and convenience to town.
