Came to the park to see the cottonwoods reflections in the lakes, also checked out the campsites/cabins for future planning. This is a very nice state park.....daily fee $7 more »
Just had a family reunion with about 25 people and we used several cabins at Dead Horse as our base camp for excursions to Sedona, Jerome, and Fort Verde. A good location that allows camp fires in... more »
Neat park. We only accessed the park because we wanted to use the trails that start here. My husband had a great bike ride and I had a great hike. The campground looked wonderful, and I'd love to take a horseback trail ride some day. One of the fishing ponds was being stocked while we were driving by - they don't mess around! Lots of fish going in. Neat place all around.
Great place to hang for the day or camp and fish clean restrooms have a fish cleaning station ,horseback, hiking, bird watching, canoeing. It's perfectly priced great for family outing to being by yourself. If you lucky you'll see eagles.
