Perfect tent camping spot

This sky island campground in Mt Lemmon is perfect for a quick weekend getaway from Tucson. The weather here is 10-15 degrees cooler than the city. This campground is small, with tent sites tucked away between pine trees. A vaulted bathroom is at the center of the parking lot.

Beautiful Creek Certain Times of the Month

Basic and messy

I have stayed there multiple times, and every time that i have people bring their dogs to run in the woods. No leashes and no poop bags. i have had to clean up stranger's dog poop in front of my tent.

The trek in we found…

  • In the lower area of the hike in you will find a more desert look to the landscape, a sharp contrast to the upper area which is more forest like.   Makes for an amazing dramatic hike

Cactus magic

I love this National Park. It's beautiful and mysterious. Despite close spaces to camp, it was a lot of fun. It was quiet and people were respectful. Land landscape is amazing and the cactus forests are beautiful. My tent was surrounded by coyotes, which was wonderful.

GHC

This campground was actually pretty good. it was better than I expected and my boyfriend actually didn't want to come to this one. There are 11 sites and are spaced pretty close together so privacy is a no in this campground. There is no supervision of these campgrounds so sometimes there is loud…
