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 Forest Service is banning campfires for land under its jurisdiction as of tomorrow at 5pm.

The WFPA is asking that you not have any campfires or warming fires or do any other sort of burning on your property until after the fire season ends which typically happens with the monsoon rains in July. We understand these fires are a tradition and it will be a sacrifice for some.
