Camp beneath the dark skies above while surrounded by beautiful desert plants at Twin Peaks Campground or Alamo Canyon Campground. They have different amenities and offer campers a choice between modern comforts and rustic wilderness. You may see the desert dark sky subtlety illuminated by countless stars or shadows that are awakened under a full moon's glow at either campground. Songs of coyotes or the hum of a breeze may lull you to sleep. Awaken with a blazing sunrise and hike one of the trails that begin at the campgrounds.

Campsites at Twin Peaks Campground (including the group sites) and Alamo Canyon Campground are reserved through or by calling 877-444-6777.
