Camp Rucker Group Site (Az)

Contact Info
N Rucker Canyon Rd
Douglas, Arizona 85607



This campground is tucked away along Rucker Creek. Unfortunately, Rucker Lake silted in after the Rattlesnake Fire in 1992. It is now a dry lake bed slowly being reclaimed by riparian vegetation.

The lake was small but beautiful, formed by a dam across scenic Rucker Canyon. The old Rucker Lake area, however, remains an excellent place to take photographs, do a little birdwatching, or just kick back and relax. With all that to offer, it should come as no surprise that campsites here are in high demand. During the peak of the summer season and holidays, unless you come early during a weekday, you may have trouble finding a site. Campsites are spacious and shady with graveled pull-ins.

Note: Black bears in area.

Accessible to persons with disabilities.
