Head north on I-17. Take the Flagstaff exit, which is actually just the end of I-17 where it interesects I-40. Continue on main drag (Milton Ave). Milton will go under a railroad bridge and veer right. Stay in left lane and turn left at next light onto Humphrey's St. Go ~9 blocks and turn left at light with left turning lane onto Fort Valley Rd, or Rt 180. Go a bit over 2 miles and turn right at Schultz Creek Rd - there is a sign before the turn. The road V's around an area of parking under pine trees - Schultz Creek road veers left, and Elden road veers right. Best camping is off of Schultz either just after it turns to dirt or all the way at the top near Schultz Pass (all rustic camping, bring a shovel if you know what I mean). Trails are everywhere! Buy a guidebook or Flag map at your LBS today and have fun!

Check out Jdub347's post, he is asking the same question. Him and I are headed up to Flag from Tucson on Saturday, gonna be up there for about a week, may head over to Sodona too. We are gonna stop off by Absolute Bikes (downtown flagstaff on San Francisco St. just north of Rte 66) to check and see about some recommendations for good camp sites. So far the best advice I see is camping off of Schultz Creek road which is off of 180 on the edge of town.

Well - as fun as hauling down hills sounds, we plan to leave the cars alone and ride eveywhere, putting in as many miles possible even into the towns coffee shops. How many people are going with you and anyone down for some epic rides.
