Plan a trip to Camp Verde, Arizona
Camp Verde’s central location, along with its temperate year-around climate, abundant outdoor recreational opportunities, and bucolic setting on the banks of the Verde River, make it one of Arizona’s premier tourist destinations.
Less than an hour from Phoenix, Flagstaff, Prescott, and Payson, Camp Verde and the surrounding Verde Valley offer numerous venues for visitors interested in history and cultural heritage, boating, hiking, biking, wine tasting, or just taking in the landscape. Add to that mix the Out of Africa Wild Animal Park and Cliff Castle Casino and you can begin to see why Camp Verde caters to all ages and every taste.
A Dark Sky Community
In June 2018, Camp Verde became the 20th Dark Sky Community and received their Dark Sky Community recognition from the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA)!
Celebrate with us at our annual Dark Sky Festival on Saturday, October 5th. Event details.
The Camp Verde Visitor Center and the Camp Verde Historical Society Museum are located at 435 S. Main Street, a few paces down the street from the Verde Valley Archaeology Center and around the corner from Fort Verde State Historic Park. Stop in for a taste of the area’s rich past, some friendly advice on how to make your visit more enriching, or a cool drink of water.
