Juniper Basin Campsite #3 is located within Juniper Basin Campground. Site three does not have a bear box, but hikers can put food items in the other two bear boxes at Juniper Basin campground. It has a stone fire ring and can accomodate up to 6 backpackers.
This campground is a strong day hike up the Tanque Verde Ridge over 6.9 miles (11 km) and 3,000 feet (914 m) of gain. Exceptional views can be seen throughout the hike, and habitats change quickly from desert scrub to oak savanna and pine/ juniper woodlands.
Water here is very seasonal, and often dry during the spring and fall. Fires are allowed here, only from collecting dead and downed wood.
You must camp within your assigned campsite.
