To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the USFS has issued a closure for Spencer Campground until May 1, 2020 (group campsites until May 16, 2020). This closure may further delay opening. For inquiries, please call (520) 576-1477. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
This mountain campground is located at the head of a shallow, forested canyon a short distance off the Catalina Highway. Spencer Canyon faces the city of Tucson and the Santa Cruz Valley, both of which are visible as a distant panorama through openings in the forest canopy.
