Burro Creek Recreation Site

The Burro Creek Recreation Site is situated along Burro Creek within a very scenic Sonoran Desert canyon at an elevation of 1,960 feet. This peaceful area has long been a favorite stop of travelers on nearby Highway 93. Visitors here are invariably fascinated with the contrast between the deep blue pools and tree-lined banks of Burro Creek, and the saguaro-studded hills and cliffs of its desert setting.

The recreation site features a campground, picnic area, and desert garden containing a large variety of native cacti. A large area of scenic wildlands are located upstream, providing day hiking and backpacking opportunities. As of January 2022 the campground will be taking reservations for the group site, sites 7 & 9, and sites 10-17 through recreation.gov. See the link on this page to make your reservation.
