8 Top-Rated Campgrounds near Tucson

    General Hitchcock Campground

    General Hitchcock Campground

    Beyond Molino Basin Campground on the Sky Island Scenic Byway, at an elevation of over 6,000 feet, General Hitchcock Campground is the first campground along here with some tall ponderosa pines and an alpine setting. This location has just 12 tent-only campsites, all first-come, first-served, but the setting here is beautiful. Large boulders are strewn about the landscape in among the trees and sites, and pine needles carpet the ground. Each site has a fire pit and standing barbecue. There is no water at this campground and only pit toilets.

    The Green Mountain Trail, open to hikers and bikers, leaves from the campground. Beyond this campground, the highway is quite dramatic. The road hugs the mountainside, sometimes on bridges, and the canyon becomes quite narrow in some sections.
