Showers Point Group Site
Forest Service / BLM
Number of Sites: 3
About: The cool shade of tall ponderosas and an overlook of Palisade Canyon located at the campground's edge make this forested area a popular place for groups to spend a weekend or an afternoon. In addition, one of the most dramatic overlooks in the Santa Catalinas, Showers Point, is within easy walking distance. From this towering bluff, views include the lower slopes of the Santa Catalina Range and the Santa Cruz Valley stretching toward Mexico. Tall, pyramid-shaped Mt. Wrightson of the Santa Rita Mountains stands prominent on the horizon. For a closer look at the Santa Catalina backcountry, the Palisade Trail departs from a nearby trailhead and drops down the southwestern slopes of the mountain range to the popular Sabino Canyon Recreation Area . The three group campsites at Showers Point are well spread out over this spacious location and include large, leveled tent pads and ramadas. A paved pathway to one of the sites provides access to persons with disabilities.
