Verde River RV Resort & Cottages
Verde River RV Resort & Cottages is located in the very heart of the Arizona region where pine forests, broad valleys, and scenic canyons abound. Visitors to this area can see much of the same scenery that the explorers, prospectors, cowboys, Native Americans, and cavalry found awesome a century or more ago. Fort Verde State Historic Park commemorates Fort Verde when it was a typical mid-level U.S. Army post during the Indian Wars in Arizona. With four of the original buildings restored, Fort Verde is the best surviving Indian Wars period military post in the state. By driving along the General Crook Trail, near Camp Verde, you can follow the path the Apaches took when they were marched out of the Verde Valley to the San Carlos Reservation in Eastern Arizona. It’s a modern highway that climbs in altitude and winds into the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine in the world.

More Info The Montezuma Castle National Monument contains the ruins of what has been described as one of the more magnificent of the prehistoric cliff dwellings. The five-story dwelling, believed to be inhabited by the Sinagua Indians, contains 20 rooms and was only accessible by ladders. Recessed into the bluffs high above Beaver Creek, it is one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in Arizona. The Tuzigoot National Monument, near Cottonwood, has preserved and restored the ruins of three pueblos that were occupied by the Sinagua Indians. Using the more than 110 rooms and several hundred burial sites, archeologists have recovered shell beads and bracelets, several varieties of pottery and storage ollas, textiles, and stone and bone implements that are displayed in the Tuzigoot Museums. Astronomers will enjoy a visit to the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, to the north of Camp Verde. One of the best-known discoveries made at the observatory was of the planet, Pluto, in 1930. Nightly viewings are available February through November.
