Things To Know Before You Come
There are no camping facilities within the park. Motels, stores, trailer parks, and campgrounds can be found in the nearby towns of Wilcox and Bowie. Another campground is located at Chiricahua National Monument, 25 miles to the southwest.
Hunting is prohibited within the park. So, too, are metal detectors, digging tools, and guns. Keep wheeled vehicles on roads and do not climb on the fragile walls and mounds. Pets must be leashed.
Did You Know?
Did you know that California troops who thought they were marching to a Civil War battle ended up fighting Cochise’s Apaches warriors in Apaches Pass? That July 1862 battle led to the establishment of Fort Bowie.
