The actual campground is almost entirely shaded since it is right under a canopy of trees in the mountains. You also have views of a dramatic mountain landscape at various parts of the national forest. The main draw of this campground, besides the beautiful cool weather, is the abundance of hiking trails in the location. You have 1.78 million acres to explore that covers part of southeastern Arizona and part of New Mexico. There is also excellent birding in the area as well, so bring your binoculars to view all of the amazing birds and wildlife the area has to offer. People often enjoy having a yummy picnic under the areas of towering pine trees.
The actual campground has access to vault toilets and you can collect firewood in the immediate area to built campfires as there are no restriction or unique fire rings at this site. There are no showers, trash cans, dump station, drinking water access, or any other amenities, making this a true bare-essentials campground for authentic camping in the wilderness experience.
Dogs are welcome on the site. You must bring poop bags with you as none are provided. You are always expected to clean up after your dog and discard the used poop bags appropriately. Proper disposal keeps the park pretty, clean, and sanitary. Plus, it keeps the wildlife safe as well.
Overall, Lower Twilight Group Site is the perfect, primitive group camping site. With tons of trails, stunning mountain views, and some of the best stargazing you will experience, you will not regret your stay at Lower Twilight!
