KaibabDec03-225x300Friendly Pines Camp is nestled in the tall, cool pines of Prescott, Arizona. Our property is located in the midst of the Bradshaw Mountains, and much of it borders Prescott National Forest. At an elevation of 6,300 feet, we enjoy warm, comfortable summers and mild winters. We are just six miles from charming and historic downtown Prescott, at one time the Territorial capital of Arizona. Prescott offers many great restaurants, shops and historic sites to keep counselors busy on their days off. Many enjoy relaxing on the Courthouse Square in the center of our city. Friendly Pines Camp boasts close proximity to many other visit-worthy locations:

The Grand Canyon – just over 3 hours north of Friendly Pines Camp, a visit to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim makes a comfortable day-off trip. Get more information about the Grand Canyon here.
