    Rose Canyon Lake Campground

    Rose Canyon Lake Campground

    If you are looking for a quick weekend camping getaway from Tucson during the warmer months, Rose Canyon Lake Campground is a wonderful destination. Not far from Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley, this campground is centered around scenic Rose Canyon Lake. At an elevation of about 7,000 feet, the area has a real alpine feel, with stands of huge ponderosa pines and Gambel oak. The campsites are back from the lake but well spread out, with plenty of space at each site. The campground has 70 sites and is the most developed of the five or six campgrounds in the area. Sites are a mix of first-come, first-served and reservable. Facilities are limited to pit toilets and central water taps. While it seems a world away from the city, way up in the sky island, it is only 22 miles from Tucson.
