About West Turkey Creek
West Turkey Creek is a dispersed campsite for Tents Only.  This small, out-of-the-way disperse campsite is located on the banks of West Turkey Creek, a sprightly stream flowing from the Chiricahua high country, which supports healthy populations of silver-barked Arizona sycamores. Rocky, flat-topped peaks form the rim of the canyon here, and Forest trails branch off from the road to follow the side canyons. All of those trails are just a short drive away. This is black bear country: Never feed or approach bears. Please dispose of all garbage in the bear-proof containers.

Arizona Waterfalls!

This is a fantastic spot! Turkey creek flows right next to the campground and offers fantastic hikes along it's banks. There are multiple small waterfalls and pools to splash in. There are several dispersed areas offering a bit more privacy both below and above the official campground. This little out of the way spot has never been busy during our multiple visits. Plan to stay more than one night because you'll be sad to leave.
