    Molino Basin Campground

    Molino Basin Campground

    Molino Basin Campground is the first of a series of campgrounds along the Sky Island Scenic Byway, east of Tucson, also known as the Mount Lemmon Highway. This campground is set at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet, but despite the altitude, it still has a very desert-like feel. Small to medium-size trees (oak and mesquite) are scattered around the campground, but the landscape is mostly long grass, often a golden color. This is one of the nicest campgrounds in the area. Scenic hills surround the area, sites are well spaced and offer plenty of privacy, and most sites are level. Many are perched on a small hill, out on their own. Molino Basin Campground has 37 campsites and is best suited to tents and small trailers. Some sites have shade covers, but many do not. A small number of sites are walk-in. Facilities are limited to pit toilets and there is no drinking water at this campground.
