For Flagstaff folks

I'll be thru Flagstaff in early April looking for a place to stake my tent overnight. Major parks are closed and I'd rather stay fairly near I-40 in town. Any suggestions? WS hosts not available.

Flagstaff use to allow camping in City parks but has since changed policy to protect homeless from frigid conditions during winter. You can instead camp in forest lands anywhere nearby town. If you are looking for a pull-thru park I believe Kit Carson is the only one that stays open year round. I have heard positives about the Grand Canyon International Hostel in Flagstaff. Check out their website.

Thanks. Three choices. Wild camp, the hostels, or a place on E. Butler called Woody Mountain Campgound. The hostels look nice.

Woody Mt. Campground is on West Highway 66, not E. Butler. I just didn't want you to end up on the opposite side of town from the campground! As was already mentioned, Flagstaff is surrounded by Forest Service land and, unless otherwise posted, camping is allowed just about anywhere on FS land. Have you checked out Ft. Tuthill? There is a campground there but I don't know when it opens for the season.
