Dead Horse Ranch State Park

A beautiful area with camping, canoeing, mountain biking and more, Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood, Arizona, is a fun-filled destination. A peaceful lake holds catfish fit for dinner, while the surrounding forestry is home to deer, hawks and other indigenous wildlife.

With a 3,300-foot elevation, Dead Horse Ranch State Park offers mild temperatures ideal for camping, mountain biking in the Coconino National Forest, hiking along the Verde River, canoeing, picnicking, fishing, or just wading in the cool water.

A six-mile reach of the river is known as the Verde River Greenway State Natural Area, where you'll find a unique ecosystem and riparian zone. Life along the river changes with the seasons, giving visitors a glimpse of the numerous species of raptors, neotropical migrants, resident songbirds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish.
