Campground Details

Open: Open all year
Number of Sites: 7

About: A stream flows through it. Located on the west side of the Chiricahuas, Sycamore Campground straddles the banks of West Turkey Creek, a small perennial stream that cascades into the campground down a series of small waterfalls and through a rocky cleft decorated with wildflowers.

As with its next door neighbor, West Turkey Creek Campground, Sycamore Campground is more like a cluster of dispersed campsites than a developed campground. These sycamore- and oak-shaded sites are located near the end of Turkey Creek Road in an area that serves as a jumping off place into the Chiricahua Wilderness. A number of trails start in the vicinity of the campground and climb to destinations and connecting trails high in the mountains. If you’re a hiker or an equestrian, you’ll find this an excellent base of operations with enough nearby trail miles to keep you busy for quite a while.

Fees: Free

Water: None

Restrooms: Vault Toilet

Directions: From Tucson, take I-10 east for 72 miles to US 191. Turn south 21 miles to AZ 181 and drive 12 miles east to the Turkey Creek turnoff (Forest Road 41).

From Douglas, take US 80 two miles west to US 191. Go north on US 19 13.5 miles to Sunizona. Take AZ 181 east approximately 14 miles to where it makes a sharp left turn. Continue east on Forest Road 41. Follow FR 41 approximately 9 miles east to the campground.

Forest roads are rough and dusty, and may be muddy and slick when wet. There is a flash flood danger at water crossings following summer and winter storms.
