There's a pawtacular campground in the Pinaleno Mountains. Make reservations at Upper Twilight Group Site with your family and friends to take a vacation in one of the sky islands. This facility can house up to 50 people and six vehicles. You can camp in your tent or bring RVs up to 40 feet in length here, but there are no hook-ups. There are pit toilets, a fire ring, and grills for your use. If you have over 30 people in your party, you'll need to bring one additional porta-potty for every 15 people.
A canopy of ponderosa pines covers the campsite. You're at an elevation of 7,400 feet here. The climate is a refreshing escape from the desert below. This area offers scenic views, opportunities to watch wildlife, and hiking. There are some trailheads near the grounds that you can use to explore your surroundings. Watch for hawks, quail, flycatchers, woodpeckers, and other birds in this forest habitat. Mammals that live in the area include white-tail deer, mule deer, and bears. For your safety, pack your food and other items with a scent in sealed bags. Keep the containers in your trunk at night. You can also suspend your supplies from a bear pole or on a rope tied between two trees. The ranger station has materials that provide other safety measures for camping out here.
Four-footed friends can join you in the Pinaleno Mountains. The Forest Service requires that they stay on a cord or leash any time that they're outside. Immediately collect their waste and dispose of it properly.
Enjoy the serenity of this part of the forest when you come to the Upper Twilight Group Site. There's no fee to use the campground. To ensure your spot, make reservations for your trip. Some area activities may require a Coronado Pass, which you can purchase at any district office.
