Flagstaff Sept 9th thru 12th, “Sunset Crater National Monument Cordless Rally”
Sunset Crater National Monument preserves the largest vent of an eruption that occurred in 1085. Sunset Crater is the youngest volcano on the Colorado Plateau. The volcano's red rim and the dark lava flows seem to have cooled and hardened to a jagged surface only yesterday. As plants return, so do the animals that use them for food and shelter.
Nearby Wupatki National Monument features an ancient four-story pueblo, a masterpiece of Ancient Puebloan stone masonry. Construction of that prehistoric condominium began around A.D. 1120, and at one time it contained as many as 100 rooms housing as many as 125 people.
Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monuments have visitor centers and feature self-guided, and interpreter-guided tours.
Another popular activity is to hike up O'Leary Peak Trail to the O’Leary Lookout Tower where the Forest Service spots wildfires.
The O’Leary group facilities offers many amenities for hosting large group gatherings, such as electricity, trash collection and drinking water. Our campsites are dry and shaded; bring your generators.

Park and setup your campsite:
Rally-loop-style parking requires Members to wait patiently until you are directed by Host/Parking Assistant to proceed to one of the three loops in a clockwise or counter-clockwise manner.
Our setup will support easy tow vehicle ingress-egress during the rally and allow unassisted early camper departures. We limited the number of participants to reduce trailer congestion.
Check in time is 2:00 PM. If you arrive after 4pm, do not self-park, locate host. Hosts will try to be on the lookout for late arrivals.
After exiting AZ89 onto Forest Service Road 395 loop, turn left on Forest Service Road 545A. We plan to have a sign to indicate the turn. (If you reach Bonito Campground or National Park entrance you’ve gone too far)
