Information on Saguaro National Park

Over the last twenty years or so, the staff at Saguaro National Park has developed a number of informational pamphlets we call "site bulletins". These site bulletins are designed to aid visitors in planning their visit to the park or in learning about our fascinating natural and cultural history. All of these site bulletins are available at either of the park's visitor centers, or right here on the web. Click on the appropriate subheading to view or print the site bulletins that interest you.

The Saguaro National Park newspaper "The Saguaro Sentinel" is also available to print.

All our site bulletins are in PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Foreign translations are listed below.

General Site Bulletins

View the site bulletins that detail planning a visit to the park, employment with the National Park Service, accessibility for persons with disabilities, educational opportunities for teachers and students, camping in the Saguaro Wilderness area, camping in the Tucson area and Junior Ranger programs at Saguaro National Park.

Camping in the Tucson Area

Note: The public camping areas listed below charge entrance fees and/or camping fees. Call the area you are interested in for campsite availability, up to date fee information, fire closures, or any other information you need to plan your trip. For private campground information, contact either the Tucson Chamber of Commerce or the Tucson Visitors Bureau.

Dispersed Camping

Dispersed camping is not allowed in many areas of Tucson. Contact the United States Forest Service (Coronado National Forest) at (520) 749-8700 for more information. Because of recent fire in BLM areas and Forest Service areas, many areas that were previously used for dispersed camping are closed indefinitely.
