Camp Verde, AZ
Our campground was just south of Sedona near Camp Verde, AZ. The Verde River ran alongside the campground, with a large empty river bed left behind by past run-off years to explore. I found an arrowhead nestled among the river rock one day while we were walking the dogs. The kids spent many hours building forts by the river and carving their own arrowheads out of sticks.
The location was a great jumping off point for so many activities in the area. Montezuma's Castle (ancient cliff dwellings) was just a few miles down the road, Sedona was about a 30-45 minute drive (depending on traffic), and so much more. There were amazing things to explore in just about every direction.
We met a really nice full-time family from Florida here at the campground, and the kids had SO much fun playing with their kids during our week-long stay. They have a fantastic web site to document their full time rv life - https://alwaysbecampin.com

Near the top of Cleopatra hill, between Prescott and Sedona, is the old copper mining town of Jerome. The town is built up on the steep hillside, and you can see Sedona's red rocks, Flagstaff's San Francisco Peaks, and even the eastern Mogollon Rim country.
We stopped by the museum and loved checking out all of the old mining equipment on display. We also explored around the Historic Audrey Shaft Headframe of Little Daisy Mine. We were able to look down the old mine shaft through a glass floor - nearly 1,900 feet to the bottom!
