Have you checked out Coconino NF? I'll be keeping an eye on this thread, as I will want to be doing the same thing soon.

I've been to Sedona, AZ a couple of times. It is wall to wall houses for most of the area. Now sure if there is any camping around Sedona, AZ

You can hit any of the lakes east of 17. I favor Ashurst Lake. Even "Closed" you can still camp there, just no camp host to collect fees. Or camp at any of the tanks (and a few lakes) southwest of Flag. Some of the tanks are stocked. Very little pressure and lots of fun. Have not tried to camp around Sedona. Just too many folks.

As you come in from the highway ( I-17? -runs Flagstaff to Phoenix) there are areas by Beaver Creek and on the other side of Sedona going towards Jerome-Prescott by way of Mingus Mtn ( 89a I think ) there are some just outside- maybe 10 miles- of Sedona on the backside of Oak Creek and there are Indian ruins there too and on forest road 89b These are all dirt roads. Sedona itself is kinda off-limits but I have stayed on a school ground once.Most of the area requires a permit just to stop on the side of the road. There is a FS/NF called Red Rock district FS Information center there coming in from Beaver Creek with info. They are online also

Take a look at the map on this webpage:
http://freecampsites.net/attribute/states/az/

The closest to Sedona would be FR 525 and FR 89b which are basically across the street from each other (off Hwy 89A just a few miles west of Sedona). Another very easy place to boondock is off the Thousand Trails Rd south of Cottonwood off Hwy 260 (shown on the map). This place is about 20 miles from Sedona.

twodog's suggestions are good, but farther from Sedona.

If you come into Sedona via Hwy 179, do stop at the Ranger Station Visitors Center for more info/maps, etc. (plus a nice view!)

What time of year and how far of the main road will you go?? Sedona is surrounded by national forest land.

The best for boondocking in the area is along Hwy 260 east of Cottonwood. There "was" and area just as you would enter the Thousand Trails RV park and also along 260 on the south side across from this entrance. I say, "was" because regulations are always changing so best to check with the Coconino forest service for any updates. If you would like an excellent state park nearby, check out Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood. It's a beauty. All these areas are within a shortish drive of Sedona. We've stayed in all of them. Have a good trip!
