The Playground Group Site is located in the pines at 7,500 feet atop Mingus Mountain in the Prescott National Forest. The site is shaded by sycamore & located near many trails. The site has tables, grills, trash dumpster, vault toilet, is fenced in but does not have water.

Plan to arrive anytime after 1:29 pm on Friday, September 23rd. The gate will be locked before that time. Once we arrive, we keep the gate closed. Just lift the right side, in the middle and push it open. Drive in & pick a place to camp. Our campsite is near Jerome, Sedona & Prescott Valley. Check out time on Sunday is 11 am.

Coffee will be brewed each morning starting at 6 am. Please bring your favorite mug. Sugar & creamer supplied.

Hans is coordinating a Saturday evening potluck. He will contact you once you register & pay to manage the menu. 

Not into camping? Join us on Saturday & stay for the potluck. Be sure to register & pay and Hans will contact you about the potluck.

Remember to bring food & drinking water. Your well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Some things to do: Mingus lake is a short walk away and a little farther is a lookout from the side of the mountain where you can see the Verde Valley.

Things to know in advance: Quiet time is from 10 pm - 6 am. The hosts will be connected to the only 30 amp outlet. You are welcome to use their microwave. A power outlet is available for phone charging, skillets & crock pots.
