Located in Chiricahua National Monument, Bonita Canyon Campground is also known as the “Wonderland of Rocks”. That’s because people love Chiricahua for the striking rock columns as well as fun hiking trails and birding prospects. Here, you get 17 miles of hiking trails - so you and your dog have plenty of room to explore!
Most of the campsites are properly shaded and provide a nice view of the creek bed running through the campground. The campground is set in a pine and oak forest, offering the ideal atmosphere for relaxation. You can use a complimentary shuttle that transports hikers to the many trailheads every morning. You will be amazed by the sweeping views of the surrounding valleys and ranges. Don’t miss this opportunity to click some stunning photographs.
There are 25 basic sites and one, bigger group site. Potable water is available and so are flush toilets, as well as food storage lockers.

There are no utility hookups; only one site reserved for ADA access has electricity, to be used for medical purposes. Peak season is from October to July.
Make sure you and your doggo keep a distance from the prairie dogs and the other wildlife present. You need to keep your dog on a leash when you’re at Bonita Canyon Campground.
