About the Campground
Located at an elevation of 5,533 feet, Camp Rucker Group Site is located on the Rucker and Tex Canyon scenic drive, 32 miles north of Douglas, AZ, Camp Rucker is situated in a grassy area with plenty of open space between the oaks, junipers and Arizona walnuts that provide welcome shade on a summer day. A short distance from the camp, Rucker Creek runs intermittently throughout the year. Monte Vista Peak to the northeast and a number of other minor peaks and foothills provide a scenic backdrop.
Other recreation opportunities in the area include the historic Rucker Military Camp and Ranch, which is left over from the days when the U.S. Calvary and the Chiricahua Apaches were at war throughout this region. Some of the buildings within that outpost are still standing, and interpretive signs spread among them give Forest visitors a glimpse into their history.
Facilities at the Camp Rucker Group Site include 8 picnic tables, two (2) large serving table, combination fire rings/grills, drinking water (seasonal from April to November), bear-proof trash containers and toilets.
