Welcome to Camp Verde, Arizona's Base Camp to Adventure
Camp Verde is rich in history with the Sinagua -- an Ancestral Puebloan people, the Native Americans, the U.S. Calvary, and the settlers all coming together. The stories illustrate the many challenges faced by everyone, the conflicts and the suffering, the trail of tears of the Yavapai & Tonto-Apache, and the growth of Camp Verde through it all.
If you are visiting us or planning to relocate, welcome to our town and our history. Take time out to visit our Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center located on Main Street to learn more about us and our history.
Our weather is unique, being at 3147 feet elevation and surrounded by mountains. The mountains shelter us and the summer rains make our valley green and lush. In fact, verde is the Spanish name for green. And while you are here, enjoy our many attractions, events, shopping, and restaurants, too.
Camp Verde is Centrally Located and is only 90 miles north from the center of Phoenix and 42 miles south from Flagstaff. You can visit any of the other cities from Camp Verde: 20 miles to Sedona, 26 miles to Jerome, 16 miles to Cottonwood, 5 miles to Lake Montezuma, and 40 miles to Prescott. You can even make a day trip to the Grand Canyon from here.
