Description

Campsites here are spread among a stand of exceptionally large Arizona cypress trees. These venerable old water-loving conifers lend a unique character to this mountain camp nestled along the banks of Rucker Creek. Since campsites are arranged among the trees, trailer size is limited to sixteen feet. Some sites are quite spacious, however, with ample room to pitch a big tent and fly.

Cypress Park Campground is on the Rucker Canyon spur of the Rucker/Tex Canyon scenic drive, so it's a good place to spend the night if you’re taking your time touring the mountains. A short distance up the road beyond the campground, find old Rucker Lake bed and numerous hiking trail heads.

There are a number of Forest trails in this area that lead from the road into the Chiricahua Wilderness. The closest one to the campground is the Monte Vista Peak Trail #221 which climbs 6 miles to a magnificent view of the Chiricahua Range and the Sky Island region of southeastern Arizona.
