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.

Upcoming Fire Ban

From our Walker Fire Chief

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.

This is simply a request. We have no ban on private property in Walker until Yavapai County tells us we do and again, that has not happened yet.

A Foot of Snow And A Power Outage

After getting a foot of snow in Walker, the power went out in a couple places.

I heard there was a power pole down, but I can’t confirm.

Last update is that power will be restored by 11:00pm this evening.

I’ll sit here being grateful for our “whole house” electric generator.
