The FR618 Dispersed Camping area is located along FR618 in Coconino National Forest in Arizona. There are no designated sites, but plenty of camping spots near the banks of Wet Beaver Creek and other tributary streams like Deadwood Draw. This is good alternative to the now closed Beaver Creek Campground. There is a vault toilet at the parking lot for the trailhead.
