Welcome to Walker Community!

Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.

Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.

Everyone loves it here. The community is great, with pancake breakfasts and things like that.

We’re all friends, (except for a few crazy ones.)

Internet is best by https://www.walkerwifi.com/. They are solid and dependable, with fast speeds and no data limits.

Cell phone is best through “Call by WiFi” on your phone, through your personal router connected to Walker WiFi.

Verizon does the best straight cell service, but it’s dicey. The higher you go, the better cell reception you get.

TV is by satellite or streaming Internet. We have DirectTV.

We are unincorporated, so the building department is through the county, not Prescott city.

Water is from wells or hauled water. Wells can be private or shared by multiple parcels.

There are a few companies that haul water, and a few more that drill and maintain wells.

The higher the parcel, the better the view, and the farther you have to drill for water, and the more you pay for the well.

Everything is on septic. Make sure you get a permit from the county, which will mandate set backs and other stuff.

Trash collection is dumpsters at the fire station. You pay a yearly fee for the combination to the locks to dump your trash.

Mail delivery is at group mailboxes around the area. FedEx and UPS deliver to your door in most places out here.

We personally have a PO Box in town for important stuff. That’s a personal preference.

Here’s a list of people that provide services in Walker: https://www.walkercommunity.com/walker-information/

Here’s a list of all of the property for sale in Walker, houses and land, although you can filter that.

Two of the passengers were flown out to Valley hospitals. The driver and one passenger were ground transported locally and, tragically, the other was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

Big Update On Walker Fire’s Type 3 Engine!

We have big news about our new Type 3 Engine!

We were expecting to have a 15-24 month wait period before we’d be able
to take delivery. Another department somewhere had to back out of the Type
3 engine they ordered so the manufacturer reached out to us, and we of
course said yes. We expect it to be here in September.

Roger will be at the pancake breakfast tomorrow if you’d like to stop by
to learn more.

Please consider going to walkerfire.org to make a donation toward Engine
83.

Thank you!

ILLEGAL DUMPING AT WFPA PARKING LOT

Email from WFPA.

Over the last few days we have had several instances of people dumping
illegally on the WFPA parking lot. One was a dump trailer full of slash.

The WFPA parking lot is not a dump.

The Chip and Haul program has been finished for several weeks.

We continue to have people abusing the garbage dumpsters as well.

This practice has to stop.

New cameras will be installed this week and violators will be reported to
the Yavapai County Sheriff’s office for prosecution.

Chip and Haul Finally Finished

Email from WFPA –

Whew! The Chip and Haul pile is gone. Well almost, but it’s now just a
matter of some clean up that the county equipment couldn’t handle. Like a
root ball someone added to the pile and some rock and dirt laden material
some commercial contractor left us.

As anyone who has been by the Fire Station knows, this process was extended
by what we are calling the Perfect Storm effect. We depend on Yavapai
County for the equipment to load and grind up the pile. This year the
Crooks Fire disrupted EVERYTHING. The equipment was not available, the
county could not get employees […]

Bear Walking in Walker

I was showing a property to some clients, when they said “Hey! There’s a bear.” I pulled out my trusty iPhone and took this movie.

In 9 years of living in Walker, I have never seen a bear. Until Saturday.

I’ve been hearing of more wildlife sightings in Walker. I assume that the fire destroyed where they normally live, so they are out and about, looking for new places to hang out.

If you’ve seen any wildlife recently, please let us know in the comments below.
