Still known as the Old Pueblo, the city of Tucson is the cultural center of southeastern Arizona. This desert city is surrounded by bold mountains that rise dramatically from the beautiful Sonoran desert foothills to the craggy, forested summits. Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, to the southwest, preserves a unique sample of the Sonoran desert containing the rare Organ Pipe cactus and many other unique plants and animals. Closer to the city, the Tucson Mountains contain Saguaro National Park West, which protects one of the largest stands of giant cactus in the world. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Coyote Howls Park, Twin Peaks, Picacho Peak State Park, Gilbert Ray, Catalina State Park, Peppersauce, Spencer Canyon, Rose Canyon, General Hitchcock, Prison Camp, Molino.

Bog Springs Campground, 13 miles east of Green Valley exit 63, I-19. This USFS campground is spacious, clean, and quite pleasant. There are some campsites that are right on top of each other, but most a well separated. Pit toilets are clean. Water is available near each site. There are innumerable trails up from the campground in and through the surrounding Santa Rita mountains. Access to Madera Canyon is paved, but access to Bog Springs is dirt and gravel. The road is being repaired September 10-17, 2007, and the campground is closed during those dates.
