Come experience SAWUURA!

Do you seek the quiet of the backcountry, a quiet punctuated only by the sound of the wind in the trees and bird song?

Do you want to see the banner of the Milky Way strung across the night sky? Can you imagine warm days and cool nights nearly year round? Can you imagine the peace of camping alone with your family in a forested valley or together with other UUs and friends? Then welcome to SAWUURA. Located seven miles south of Young, Arizona at an altitude of 5500 feet, SAWUURA is a beautiful 109 acres of wilderness nestled in the heart of the Sierra Ancha Wilderness and surrounded by thousands of acres of national forest. Driving time from either Phoenix or Tucson is
approximately four hours.

Tent sites sites are nestled in the trees close to the creek bed. Picnic tables, shade awnings and an outdoor kitchen are provided in a central gathering area. There is one cabin open to members and guests & a Caretaker Cabin. There is a gravity-fed water system that brings well water to sinks and solar showers near the campsites.
