Nestled at the end of a primitive road spur in Coronado National Forest, lies an idyllic and picturesque stream-side dispersed campsite. This densely wooded, higher elevation area is an excellent getaway, although it can get cold in winter despite its southern location. Accessible by stock vehicles, it's recommended to have a four-wheel drive if the road is muddy, which can happen during small stream crossings. The site is spacious enough to accommodate larger vehicles such as vans and comes with a primitive stone fire ring for a great camping experience.

This serene location offers a peaceful escape from everyday life, with no cell service and a short drive to Chiricahua National Monument for hiking and scenic views. The area is also popular during peak season, which is worth noting, but it's a minor inconvenience when compared to the beauty and natural ambiance of the place. The hiking trail that passes through the campsite offers a great opportunity to experience the surrounding nature, and the spot is perfect for your Winnebago Revel.

Overall, this campsite provides a perfect haven for those seeking solitude in nature. The picturesque location, coupled with the amenities, makes for an ideal camping experience, and we highly recommend it to anyone in search of a peaceful retreat.

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.
