Top 3 Things to Do in Camp Verde

  1. Horseback riding: Enjoy an hour-long, guided tour with Wild Western Horseback Adventures. This trip will take you around the valley, including the most beautiful scenery in the area. It’s great for all levels of riding experience. You can take the whole family! Or if you’re in the mood for more adventure, the Ride in the Vines tour takes you through Alcantara Vineyards. The mesmerizing scenery, just 30 minutes from Sedona, includes river crossings, old ruins, and of course the beautiful vineyard. This will for sure be a unique highlight of your trip! 
  2. Fort Verde State Historic Park: Discover the rich history of the Verde Valley! If you’re interested in frontier life and the military history of the area, a stop at Fort Verde State Historic Park will give you a glimpse into the 1800s. You’ll find some of the original buildings still standing and living history programs to bring the history to life! The park rangers are a wealth of knowledge and enjoy answering questions about this time in history. Be sure to check it out!
  3. Predator Zip Lines: We cannot forget the amazing experiences at the Out of Africa Wildlife Park. You can experience an aerial view of the park with their thrilling zip line tours! At Predator Zip Lines, a two-hour tour takes you through five lines in addition to a suspension bridge! As you fly through the park, see how many animals you can spot-lions, cougars, and tigers, to name a few. There are even options for nighttime tours! Not only will you enjoy the zip lines, but your senses will take in the sounds of the wildlife like never before in the thrill of the night! 

We haven’t even begun to dive into the wineries and breweries of the area! The truth is, this little town has so many attractions packed inside its 43 square miles. When you map out your list of things to do, it’s likely you’ll need to divide and conquer within a couple trips!
