Prescott Basin Designated Dispersed Camping

It was a lot of fun a little difficult to find a spot flat enough but were also 26’ long. Designated spots but no trash or bathrooms some fire rings though. It’s close to gold water lake which has some hiking fishing and boating <20hp I think. Dirt roads but nothing to bad. We stayed at spot 10/11 on FDR 79

Lots of places around Prescott to disperse camp. One of our go to's, and favorites. Take Old Senator Hwy south from Downtown Prescott towards the Wolf Creek campground. Prescott National Forest has a nice map that I see you attached at the bottom.
Just make sure you are camping where there are marked spots. Probably not too busy yet with temps dipping down into the 30's at night. We went in late May last year and it got down to 28 degrees. It was chilly and we were in a tent at that time too.

My sister is in star valley and is jealous of our good weather. You all could head out into the outdoors instead of looking at ur 4 walls. But still too cold
Yup. Cold and wet but that’s April around here. Sunday night we had a thundersnow storm then rain. We don’t really start camping until early June
