Status – OPEN

We’ve been here in-person, but it might have been a while. To our knowledge, this spot is currently open and accessible, but that can easily change, so always have a back-up plan!


Experience a hilltop dispersed campsite featuring a stone fire ring, surrounded by juniper trees for shade and shelter. Despite limited cell service, the site accommodates three vehicles, requiring some leveling on uneven ground. Enjoy peace and quiet with good privacy, offering a view of the Santa Rita mountain range to the west and rolling hills to the east.

While satellite connectivity may be limited due to dense vegetation, access is straightforward via a short forest road offshoot. Suitable for any stock four-wheel drive vehicle, larger vehicles may not fit due to close proximity of trees. Discover a landscape dotted with historical and active mining claims, with great hiking opportunities nearby.

This hilltop campsite serves as a simple retreat in southern Arizona, providing a tranquil escape surrounded by juniper trees and scenic views. Strongly recommended if you're looking for an idyllic backcountry campsite offering solitude and great views.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
