Nogales Area Campgrounds Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Nogales is best known as the entrance to Mexico and the city of Nogales, Sonora. But campers and recreationists have opportunities here, too. The beautiful grass and oak uplands of the Atacosa Mountains offer plenty of opportunities for back road explorations, as well as a lake very popular with anglers. Hikers will want to check out Sycamore Canyon in the Pajarita Wilderness. Classic ranching country surrounds the hamlets of Patagonia and Sonoita.
Anglers and boaters have Patagonia Lake, and hikers can spend days in the Mount Wrightson Wilderness high atop the Santa Rita Mountains. If you’re a bird watcher, you’ll want to visit the Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve, maintained by The Nature Conservancy. This world-famous sanctuary, on a major migration route, hosts over 250 species of birds, including nine varieties of hummingbirds. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Bog Springs, White Rock, Calebasas, Patagonia Lake State Park."
