Overview

Overview

Camp Rucker Group Site sits in the beautiful and remote Chiricahua Mountains of southeastern Arizona. The group camping area offers mountain views and plenty of space for group camping for up to 150 people.

Natural Features:

Located at an elevation of 5,533 feet, Camp Rucker is situated in a grassy area with plenty of open space between the oak, juniper and Arizona walnut trees that provide welcome shade on a summer day.

A short distance from the camp, Rucker Creek runs intermittently throughout the year. Monte Vista Peak to the northeast and a number of other minor peaks and foothills provide a scenic backdrop.

Recreation:

The Rucker and Tex Canyon scenic drive takes visitors over the southern reaches of the Chiricahua Mountains through beautiful canyon country, several forest campgrounds and a number of trails into the Chiricahua Wilderness. History buffs might want to stop at the historic Rucker Military Camp and Ranch, a remnant of the region's warring between U.S. Cavalry and Chiricahua Apaches.

Facilities:

Camp Rucker has one spacious group campsite that includes eight picnic tables, two large serving tables, campfire rings with grills, bear-proof trash containers and vault toilets.

The site was designed for groups. However, if the area has not been reserved by a group, individuals are permitted to camp.

Nearby Attractions:

Campers can take a day trip to Chiricahua National Monument. The monument protects some of the most scenic areas of the Chiricahua Mountains, a wonderland of rocks and forests with many opportunities for hiking and photography.
