Located on Mt. Lemmon just northeast of Tucson, Arizona, these campgrounds and lakefront day use areas are a great way to escape the summer heat.

  • 1st March 2014 Hope all of you have had a great winter so far!! Rose Canyon campground will plan on opening on Friday April 11th for the 2014 season. Whitetail and Showers Point group areas are planning on opening Friday April 18th. Spencer Campground will open Friday May 2nd.
  • 9th October 2013 We just received word that our water will be turned off by tomorrow evening. Therefore our campgrounds will be closed for the remainder of the 2013 season. This decision was somewhat forced upon us due to someone in Washington giving a direction to stop any use of federal resources, which apparently includes the water supplied to our campgrounds. Please understand it is not our company or the local forest service making these decisions. Thank you for visiting our campgrounds this season and please come back next year. We are planning to open the 2014 season around mid April. Please check back here later for the actual opening date. Have a safe and wonderful winter!
  • 3rd October 2013 As of now, Rose Canyon Campground, Spencer Campground, and Whitetail group use area are CLOSED. Please check back frequently for updates as to whether or not we will reopen to finish out the season. We are truly sorry for this inconvenience.
  • 1st October 2013 Rose Canyon Campground, Spencer Campground, and Whitetail group use area(by reservation only) are currently open. Should the government shut down affect these campgrounds a notice will be posted immediately. Thank You
