Description

Don’t be alarmed by its name: Dead Horse Ranch State Park is located next to the community of Cottonwood in the scenic Verde Valley and is alive with animal and human activity. Perhaps best known as a 'nest' for bird watching, the park is also favored for picnicking, camping, canoeing, horseback riding, and stream and pond fishing. Walking trails meander along the shady banks of a six-mile reach of the river is known as the Verde River Greenway. Its unique ecosystem, the Cottonwood / Willow riparian gallery forest, is one of less than 20 such riparian zones in the world. Life along the river changes with the seasons, giving visitors a glimpse of the numerous species of raptors, neotropical migrants, resident songbirds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. The park, with its full-facility campground is also a good base for exploring other attractions in and around the beautiful Verde Valley.
