Very pretty state park

We had a great time here at Dead Horse Ranch SP. We fished at the well-stocked lagoons and did some hiking too. The views are quite pretty. As for the site we got, it's big enough for us and, as expected of a state park, has only water and electricity. The park does have a good dumping station near the gatehouse so the lack of a sewer wasn't really a problem. The park doesn't have a dog run, but the city park was close by so we didn't find it an issue either. Tuzigoot National Monument is nearby and well worth visiting.

We stayed here in a Class C Motorhome.

A great park for hiking

The atmosphere in Dead Horse Ranch is so quiet and peaceful that it's easy to forget that it's just outside the city. The SP has access to the Verde River and has lot of hiking and walking trails around. You can also go on a guided ride on horseback as they've got an equestrian concessionaire now. Our site had electric and water hookups as well as nice shade trees. Since it's a state park, no cable TV or wi-fi available. No sewer hookups either, but there's a dump station near the entrance of the park. The rangers are friendly and even though they are strict, they usually leave you alone.
