Peaks Valley Preserve was created to be a space where people can camp out in the wild, but still have amenities- like power (solar power generator, not enough for RV though), water, and a bathroom. This 5 acre property was developed with nature in mind, and we aimed to keep it as natural as possible as most of the land was left wild, for your hiking and viewing pleasure! Primary vegetation are Mesquite trees, Cholla cactus, Turpentine bushes, Yucca. Tons of privacy, as there are few neighbors nearby and the roads bordering the property are lightly travelled. Road was recently expanded to be levelled and widened. Feel free to hike around the 5 acres, boundaries are the road to the South and East, and private property signs to the North and West.  This is a natural area, so be wary of wildlife dens, tracks, and scat.

Settled only a few miles from the gorgeous Chiricahua mountains in the charming rural community of Sunizona, there are ample opportunities to see wildlife (coyote, javelina, jackrabbits, unique birds and more have all been spotted on the property), and explore the area. From the nearby Turkey Creek (runs in the summer and must be crossed to access the property), to the 360 degree views of "Sky Island" mountain ranges, this property is centrally located to allow full exploration of everything Cochise County has to offer! In the winter, be sure to see the Sandhill Cranes during their migration- an incredible sight to behold. There is plentiful hiking in the surrounding areas, and on occasions you can spot Coatis, mountain lions, eagles, and maybe even a jaguar!

Immerse yourself, not only in the beautiful nature, but also the rich history this area has to offer. From the Native American tribes who called this place home, to the rise and fall of the Wild West, journeying through this land certainly takes you back in time! Be sure to see the world's largest Rosebush in Tombstone, you won't regret it. There are numerous ghost towns in the area as well, worth the visits!

The weather in this region is wonderful- just be wary of heat in the early summer and monsoons/storms in the mid/late summer. AWD/4x4 vehicles recommended, but not required as the property is off a well maintained dirt road. During monsoon season, the creek may flow, making SUV/trucks recommended.

Nearby towns: Sunsites, Tombstone, Bisbee, Sierra Vista, Portal, Tucson (1.5 hours away)

Nearby attractions: Chiricahua National Monument, Dragoon mountains, Cochise Stronghold, Dos Cabezas Peaks, Whitewater Wildlife Draw, Ash/Ramsey Canyon (hummingbirds galore!)

Perfect spot. A bit off the main road but so worth it. The site is well thought out; gravel parking, pristine tent location, a picnic table with a cover, AND a water tank! Exceptionally quiet and a lovely place to call home while exploring the area.

Beautiful views, super private and quiet, close to Chiricahua, Cochise Stronghold, etc ! We loved our time at Peaks Valley so much we stayed an extra night. Simple but just what we needed. Great Verizon was a bonus for working!

What a pleasant comfortable little spot in the desert. If your traveling to check out the surrounding mountains this is a great option to have a peaceful nights rest.
Road in is fine for a regular car. Picnic table, outhouse, and water is all we need for a good stay, but they provide more, like solar lights, nice crushed stone to camp on and our favorite was the nice candle they have on the picnic table. Enjoy the ambience!

Solitude, sunsets, stargazing...

If you're looking for peace and quiet (the only manmade sounds will be your own), solitude (we had one car drive by in 3 days), sunsets and night skies that amaze, and surroundings that will have you imagining you're in the Serengeti or the Australian bush, this is the place for you! Peaks Valley Preserve offered a very accommodating space for our 19-ft trailer and our socially challenged dog, with a 300-gallon water tank, a picnic ramada, an extremely clean port-a-potty, a fire pit, and graveled parking and walking areas to minimize tracking dirt and dust. And it was a convenient (the 5+ miles of dirt road is well maintained, not highly traveled, and our trailer did just fine), yet private, base camp for adventuring into the nearby Chiricahua and Dragoon mountains, as well as, many historical sites and ghost towns. We even enjoyed wine tasting from the area vineyards.

Spectacular night sky.Or, just a trip to the port-a-potty.On a walkabout in the Australian bush?Having a cell signal made it fun to identify those bright stars (yes, there's an app for that). This was the planet Venus.

Central to tourist sites

Very nice, well maintained, and private site with extra amenities including power (supplied by solar charged generator) and plenty of water (tank). Centrally located between tourist sites such as Cochise Stronghold, Chiricahua National Monument, Johnny Ringo's Grave, and the ghost town trail. Caution: Gravel roads lead you to the Preserve, and long rigs may struggle to make some of the turns. Great mobile service, but family really appreciated the privacy of this location. Host Michael was very responsive to questions.
