I’ve stayed at Sedona View about a dozen times over the past 2 years. It’s very scenic but only if you get one of the “premium” spots along the cliff. Those cost quite a bit more than the others. Worth it though if you’re only stopping for a few nights.
Here’s a tip from a regular (me):
Ask for spots #2 through #10 for the best views.
The lower the number the better the view.
Spot #1 is rented by a permie (permanent resident).
It is basically a big gravel parking lot with zero shade.
The whole place is still somewhat new, only about 3 years old so even though they did plant a lot of trees, none of them are more than about 10 feet high so far and not very wide. I was one of the first people to rent a spot there. I was on the “cliff” and there were only about ten other RVs in the entire park!
This was in early 2020.
The aforementioned gravel is very deep in some areas, especially “the horseshoe” area and I’ve seen numerous two-wheel-drive vehicles get stuck in it. Every single site is unlevel and some are really really unlevel.
It’s also at least a fifteen-minute drive to the nearest gas station or anything else. There’s literally nothing but a car dealership within walking distance. There is a Walmart, a Sonic, and a few other places in Cottonwood but the town is pretty small, so there’s not a lot to do unless you like ATV trails which are everywhere and they have some great ones.
At any rate, it is very dark there at night and pretty quiet. But only about 1/3 of the RVs there ever move. Probably 1/4 of the RVers are permies.
Stay as far away from the southeast section as possible. That’s where all the sketchy rigs are with refrigerators and crap everywhere outside their rigs.
We never had any problems with crime there but I’m just saying. The sketchy junker section is in the south part of the “resort”. Stay as far northwest as you can, and as I said, the best spots are on the north “cliff”, spots two thru ten.
So yeah, pros and cons, but people should hear the bad along with the good, from someone who has stayed there many times.
Personally, we’ll probably head elsewhere next time we’re out that way. There are much nicer parks within 30 minutes that are paved and level and cost about the same.
If you head 45 minutes NorthWest of there, to Prescott Valley, it is a much larger town with a lot more restaurants and shopping.
