Somewhere just off Forest Road 525 near Sedona, Graham and I found a gorgeous site to camp. It was so scenic that we found we were on the path on which many Jeep tours take tourists. We waved to passers-by as they admired our campsite. We just so happened to camp on a free weekend, but otherwise, be sure to get a Red Rock pass, which I believe are $5-6 and sold at many gas stations and stores in Sedona. You are provided with a newsletter that has a map of where you can camp with the pass.
The next morning, we also awoke to see hot-air balloons overhead. It looked like the balloon was descending, so we rushed over to take a look and some photos. It was a more welcome surprise than the howls of coyotes the night before.
The views from this camping area are gorgeous each morning and sunset. I recommend this over other popular Sedona camping sites because you have more privacy.
