Great Getaway

Easily accessible from Tucson, Sliver City, El Paso and even Phoenix, this 10 space campground is one of a few in Cave Creek Canyon. The sites were spacious and my fussy wife said the vault toilet was the cleanest she had ever visited.

During our visit some of the nearby campsites were closed…

Gorgeous Views from Every Single Direction!

There are some campgrounds that just stick out in your mind for their beauty, location, and proximity to other cool stuff.  Sunny Flat is one of them. As the name implies, here’s a place where you can put out your solar panel and charge up. But the experience re-charges more than just your camper…

  • Lots of sun here in Sunny Flat, but an extension cord on your portable panel will help get it completely out into the sun.
  • Even the reflections are gorgeous.
  • Chollas in bloom!

About This Campground

Campsites are clustered around a grassy meadow in this relatively open streamside camp. All sites are shaded, some more than others, and all are reasonably close to Cave Creek. Birdwatching is good right in camp (as it is in all Cave Creek camps) with elegant trogons and many other interesting species sighted regularly among the sycamores and oaks that border the creek. The open character of the area makes for exciting views of Cave Creek Canyon’s famous rock formations which tower over the area. Other recreation attractions in Cave Creek Canyon, such as birding areas along South Fork and a number of hiking trails, are just a short drive from this campground, which is along the Cave Creek Canyon/Portal to Paradise Loop scenic drive. Some attractions you may want to take advantage of while you’re camped at Sunny Flat are the scenic Vista Point Trail located a short distance downstream of the campground, and the Cave Creek Visitor Information Center a little farther downstream. The Center, is open year-round, offers interpretive information, books and pamphlets on the natural and cultural history of the area, and a few examples of local wildlife species. Note: Black bears in area.
