In the heart of Arizona, the Verde Valley offers convenient access to Northern Arizona cities, including Phoenix. Nestled between Sedona’s red rock cliffs, the Mingus Mountain range, and the Mogollon Rim, Verde Valley sits at an elevation that ranges from three thousand, one hundred feet up to four thousand, five hundred feet above sea level. This elevation tempers the rim country’s wintry weather and the desert’s harsh summer heat. Verde Valley is primarily State Lands and National Forest; therefore, residents enjoy a multitude of recreation opportunities year-round. Popular outdoor activities in the area include hang-gliding, horseback riding, rock climbing, hunting, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, biking, four-wheeling, hiking, and golfing. Additionally, just sixty-five miles from the heart of the valley is the Arizona Snowbowl offering downhill and cross-country skiing opportunities.
Adding to its allure, there are more than one hundred and fifty miles of rivers and streams passing through Verde Valley, and an impressive list of wild residents, such as Deer, Mountain Lions, Bob Cats, Javelina, Antelope, Coyotes, Red Fox, Black Bear, Great Blue Heron, and American Elk. Verde Valley is also home to several incredible communities with a vast array of housing options. Among those Verde Valley communities is its first to be settled, Camp Verde. Camp Verde was originally founded in 1865 as Fort Verde and today is home to some of the valley’s best swimming holes. Clarkdale is also well-established with humble roots as a smelter town and mining camp, and Cottonwood began in 1879 as a farming community. Today, Cottonwood is Verde Valley’s commercial center and has easy access to the surrounding valley towns. Located between Cottonwood and Sedona, Page Springs and Cornville also started as farming communities, while Jerome began as a copper mining town, home to the Copper Queen Mine with a reputation as the west’s wickedest town. Today, Jerome is a vibrant artists community with just over three hundred and fifty residents. Other Verde Valley communities include Sedona, McGuireville, Rimrock, Lake Montezuma, and the Village of Oak Creek.
