More About
Camp Verde, AZ

About Camp VerdeCamp Verde was founded as Camp Lincoln in 1866 by Arizona Volunteers to defend pioneers from Apache raids. The fort was renamed Fort Verde a few years later by the U.S. Army. As the area became more peaceful, residents turned their energies toward cattle raising and farming, the two major industries in the broad Verde Valley. Native American ruins and cliff dwellings may be seen at nearby Montezuma Castle National Monument and Montezuma Well.

The Fort Verde Days event in October celebrates the town's cowboy and pioneer history with reenactments, parade and live entertainment around Fort Verde State Historic Park.
