West Turkey Creek

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

West Turkey Creek is a dispersed campsite for Tents Only. 

This small, out-of-the-way disperse campsite is located on the banks of West Turkey Creek, a sprightly stream flowing from the Chiricahua high country, which supports healthy populations of silver-barked Arizona sycamores. Rocky, flat-topped peaks form the rim of the canyon here, and Forest trails branch off from the road to follow the side canyons. All of those trails are just a short drive away.

This is black bear country: Never feed or approach bears. Please dispose of all garbage in the bear-proof containers.
