The Coconino National Forest a part of the United States National Forest, is located in the vicinity of North Arizona of Flagstaff.

Coconino National Forest And Lava River Cave Reviews & Ratings
Called to voice a concern about access to water. Talked to an incredibly rude and surly woman named liz. So rude unhelpful and unfriendly she hung up on me. Water is fundamental human right and the national forest and all of its entities are tax payer funded so getting access to a good amount of drinking water should be no problem, she made it seem like it wasnt. Shocked this happened what a rude nasty woman.
We arrived just barely after hours, and a woman was still willing to help us on her way out.
I've generally had nothing but great experiences dealing with National Forest folks, and this office was no exception - many thanks to George for the excellent camping tips! Had a great time in the forest.
The freedom to be able to park in camp anywhere you wanted within a small limit you could find fire pit that was already made and just stop and kickback and just pick up and start over the next day and find another one it was it was fabulous highly recommended highly recommended
