Description

Bog Springs offers some exceptional scenery, either right from your campsite or a short walk away. Many visitors unfamiliar with Arizona will be surprised by the high grasslands that climb the slopes of the Santa Rita Mountains, the thick oak woodlands, and the conifer forest that covers the mountain tops.

Three trails leave from the campground to nearby springs and seeps and the small desert oases they feed. At Madera Picnic Area, just a short walk away, there is access to a nature trail, part of which is paved and barrier-free.

Within driving distance are over 65 miles of Forest trails that lead into the Mt. Wrightson Wilderness, a mountain bike ride around spectacular Elephant Head Rock, and three scenic drives, one of which visits the Smithsonian's Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory.

This oak-shaded area provides the only campsites available within the Madera Canyon Recreation Area.
