Named for bathtub-like formations worn in the rock of Rucker streambed adjacent to the area, this campground is located on a forested bench overlooking the old Rucker Lake bed, which silted in after the Rattlesnake Fire in 1992.

Campsites here are shaded by a stand of Apache and Chihuahua pines. Yuccas remind you that the desert is not far away. All sites are walk-in only, so you’ll have to walk to your table and fire grill.

Location: 38 miles north of Douglas.

Access:

From Douglas, take Leslie Canyon Road north to Rucker Canyon. Stay on the main road, which will become Forest Road 74.
From Tucson, take I-10 east 72 miles to US 191. Turn right (south) and drive 37 miles to the turnoff to old Rucker Lake. Turn left (east) and drive 17 miles to the Forest boundary. Continue on FR 74 to FR 74E. Turn left (north) on FR 74E and follow the signs to Rucker Lake. Bathtub Campground is about 6 miles up this road.
Forest roads are rough and dusty and may be muddy and slick when wet. There is a flash flood danger at water crossings following summer and winter storms. Be careful.
