Camp Verde, located in the geographical center of Arizona, is an interesting and economical stop when planning your next trip or considering relocation. Camp Verde, the oldest settlement in the Verde Valley, settled in February 1865 and is the home of a historic military post, Fort Verde State Park. August 1865, Fort Verde was built as protection for the settlers against Indian raids.
Still a rural farming and western ranching community, you will find our town friendly and relaxed.
Our weather is beautifully 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. While you are here, you can enjoy our many outdoor activities, such as horseback riding, van tours, fishing, canoeing, hiking and camping. A complete calendar of events is available upon request.
Camp Verde has a wide variety of clubs, civic organizations, churches, and a very active senior center. Within our town limits are three Indian Reservations and an Indian owned Casino and Visitor Center. We have lodging accommodations including motels, RV parks and genuine pitch-a-tent camping. A wide variety of restaurants serve up choices including country cooking, Mexican and Chinese food, and traditional western fare.
