Pitch your tent on our pea gravel pad with a breath taking view of the Catalina Mountains. Enjoy nature while camped along Woodland Wash with direct access to hiking. Situated 1.5 miles from trail heads, Mount Lemmon, and shopping which gives you the best of all worlds. Located at the back of our 4.5 acre property, you have privacy and will enjoy Sonoran nature all around. Amenities include access to private full bath in our bunkhouse (with a shower!), fire ring (including fire wood), picnic table, water at the camp site, and a view of some pretty cool horses. A couple of them are neighbors to the camp site. This is a working horse barn. You will see horses moved about, see them go out on rides, and hear and smell them. The property is well maintained allowing our guests to enjoy the western feel without being overpowered. Traveling with your own equine friend? Stalls available for them as well. Just ask.
We have a large dog, Max. He is very laid back and enjoys hosting campers. He thinks they are all his friends. You will see him and he may wonder through your campsite while you are here. If you prefer not to meet him, no worries at all. He doesn't take offense. Just let us know.
This site is designed for tent camping only. It is not well suited to people sleeping in their cars, roof top camping, or camper vans. We encourage those guests to consider one of our two RV sites.

Excellent tucson getaway
What a great place to stay!!! My daughter and I stayed two nights over the Memorial weekend. The property description is accurate. This is genuinely a camper's paradise if you are headed to Tucson. The animals on the property were adorable and added to our adventure. The tent area is as pictured, and we felt very safe from wild creatures and rogue humans. Keep in mind this property is active daily with horses, and that means Mark and Julie need to move around cleaning, feeding, and, the best part riding their horses. Car camping would not be best for this location as the parking spot is in a busy location. I would recommend pitching a tent and enjoying the amenities and ambiance.
Excellent site near natl park!
The campsite is in the back of Julie’s property, and is an awesome setup with a nicely elevated tent platform, well water spigot, picnic table, and firepit. The bathroom was easy to access, and the charging plugs and WiFi were a great bonus! The best part were our bunk mates, Julia’s horse Rocky and dog Max who were both friendly and loved a few pets on the head! Julie and Mark we’re both welcoming and easygoing, would definitely recommend their site and would stay there again!
Quiet camping with horses
We loved staying at Julie’s place! Nice little corner with a tent pad, fire pit, water source, and picnic table. We loved saying hi to our nayyy-bor (Rocky the horse)
Julie and Mark were wonderful hosts and went above & beyond to make me feel welcome! Great location to explore Saguaro NP and Sabino Canyon. The campsite is tucked behind a few of the horses with a beautiful view of the mountains. Would definitely stay here again!
Highly recommended camp site!
We had an incredible 6-night stay at La Hacienda Chuparosa and highly recommend it to other campers!
The tent site is located at the back corner of the property and offers a private feel while still being close to the bathroom facilities. A horse pasture fence and horse stall abut the camp site and closeness to the horses is very much a part of the experience. The site consisted of a well-groomed sandy area with a raised pad filled with gravel for our tent. The camp site was spacious and had a stone fire ring (that we used morning and night) as well as a picnic table. Two plastic Adirondack chairs were available for our use. A hose with potable water was also available at the site which we used for cooking and cleaning dishes. A trash can and recycle bin were available at the center of the property, just a short walk away. We looked forward to frequent visits from Max, the sweet-natured ambling farm dog. Other visitors to our site included ground squirrels and rabbits, and we enjoyed the nightly singing of coyotes.
The bathroom facilities on this property are fantastic—especially for camping. A small bathroom is located in a “finished” (like a house) portion of the barn where saddles are kept. This area includes a toilet, sink, and shower in a self-contained bathroom with swinging doors. There is also a mini fridge and microwave available for use. The door to this area can be locked from the inside and provides a clean, quiet, and private area to shower, get changed, etc.
My girlfriend and I loved camping on Julie's ranch. At this ranch, you are the only camper! Once there, Julie was kind enough to introduce us to all of the horses and tell us their stories. It was almost like an added bonus.
The site, washroom, and laundry area are clean. The directions that Julie uses to help find the place are helpful. There is also nearby access to Sabino Canyon and Saguaro National Park.
Definitely a must see if you are planning on camping near Tuscon!
