Jack's Canyon Coconino National Forest | AZ Boondocking

Calling all rock climbers! This place was soooo much fun. And even if you are not into climbing, the hiking is beautiful. While staying here we also took a side trip over to Winslow AZ and Petrified National Forest. The road is pretty rocky but if you are a little adventurous it's a rewarding site to stay for one or several nights.

Location Notes:


We wished we had more time to explore the area more. It truly is a rock climber paradise for Arizona climbing. There were several easy routes for our kids and more challenging ones as well. The downside is that it's pretty far away from anything else. We did go into Winslow and to Petrified Forest National Park but it meant leaving the rig over an hour away from where we were exploring for an entire day. Fortunately we did not have any trouble and we only ran into one other RVer during our stay. It was quite cold in December but the climbing was nice as the sun warmed the rock up. There were a LOT of bees though so beware. We talked about going again but we just ran out of time before we had to leave Arizona.
