Freidlein Prairie Campground Professional Review and Guide

"Freidlein Prairie Road climbs along the southern flank of the San Francisco Mountains above Flagstaff, through a dense mixed-conifer/aspen forest dotted with small clearings. Freidlein Prairie itself (sometimes spelled Friedlein or even Friedlund) is an irregular patch of aspen-rimmed grassland that, especially in fall when the trees blaze with gold, can easily be seen from town.

Wildflowers abound in season, and elk and mule deer graze here throughout the year. This beautiful spot in the Coconino National Forest may have been named for an Arizona pioneer family: in 1894, the local newspaper mentioned the theft of a horse from the Friedlein brothers, as well as one Will Friedlein’s successful duck-hunting trip to Mormon Lake. Dispersed camping is allowed through most of Arizona’s national forests, providing some of the state’s most beautiful and serene camping experiences."
