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.

Great scenery and sunsets
Great scenery and sunsets at Peaks Valley Preserve! Nearby Chiricahua National Monument & Fort Bowie NHS have wonderful hiking with vistas galore. Thanks Micheal for creating such a nice campsite for Hipcampers!!
Peace and quiet
First off, those were the most accurate directions I've ever used in my life. Do not rely on google. Just take a screenshot of the directions and use those, you'll get there. Looks way more remote and middle of nowhere than it is, there are people around, they're just kinda far. The site was great! Very happy to see there was a generator and I could plug in my phone. Was also able to use my phone as a mobile hotspot and plug in my computer and use it. Great sunset and loved having a picnic table.
Beauty in the dessert
After following excellent directions on bumpy ride on dirt roads we came to our campsite. The campsite was graveled and level. We had the place to ourselves. We walked on the road for a bit to stretch our legs. We enjoyed looking at birds, seeing a jack rabbit and hearing coyotes yip in the night. The sunset, stars and sunrise were beautiful. Great site for one night.
