The 2018 Pecos Conference will be held at the Hotshot Camp about 10 miles outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. 

The conference campsite will open at 2 p.m. on Thursday, August 9. Camps must be vacated by 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 12, to allow time to break down the infrastructure. 

Take Care of the Forest

Coconino National Forest has allowed the conference to use this beautiful site. Please respect the location and clean your campsite carefully when you leave to ensure that we will have access to this location for future conferences.

The road through the camping and conference area is narrow and has limited pull-out areas. Please obey the posted signs and directions of our parking volunteers and limit the number of trips that you make in and out of the camp area. Consider carpooling into town for supplies or entertainment.

Camping facilities

This is an undeveloped camping area with no facilities, so campers will need to come prepared. The conference will provide potable water, a trash dumpster and toilets for conference attendees. However, there will be no ramadas, tables, grills, tent pads, etc.  Self-contained stoves are permitted and encouraged.

Depending on forest conditions and fire restrictions, several group fire rings may be available, and fire pans will be permitted. Please refrain from building additional fire rings for personal use.

There will be space for RVs and trailers at the conference site, but there are no hook-ups. Those camping in RVs and trailers are requested to turn off generators between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Quiet hours also apply to tent campers.
Dispersed camping is allowed on most Coconino National Forest lands, but new regulations have been implemented for camping and driving off established roads. Please refer to the maps for the recently revised travel-management plan at: <> Paper versions of these maps also are available at forest contact stations and the Forest Service Supervisor’s Office, 1824 S. Thompson St., Flagstaff, AZ 86001.


Pets are welcome at the conference and camping area, but must be on a leash or otherwise physically restrained at all times, per the Coconino County leash law (Regulation #11-1-2), which applies on Forest Service land. Please clean up after your dog in the conference area.
