Where To Stay
There are three overnight lodging facilities providing accommodations in Madera Canyon, each linked to their Website below. During the spring and summer birding season, reservations are sometimes required far in advance. The Santa Rita Lodge has a wonderful gift shop and sells Coronado Recreational Annual Passes ($40). Day Use $8 and weekly $10 passes are available at all Canyon parking/picnic areas where signs and envelopes are located. National/Interagency passes, also acceptable in the Canyon, are available Online and at some National Parks/Federal Recreation areas. A new QR code system has been implemented in some areas. A photo scan will take you to the USFS site where passes can be purchased via credit card.
While these locations offer overnight accommodations in the canyon, there are no restaurants or gas stations in Madera Canyon. Be sure to bring water and any food you will need for your stay in the canyon. In adjacent Green Valley, 12 miles from Madera Canyon, there are many restaurants, several motels, grocery stores, and other facilities readily available.
The Bog Springs Campground in Madera Canyon has 13 campsites suitable for tents or RVs, although no RV hookups are provided. Campsites are available for a daily fee on a first-come, first-served basis. A campground host is generally on site. Toilets and drinking water are available at the campground, and each campsite has a table and fire grill. Bring your own firewood, charcoal, or camp stove. However, please remember that during extremely dry weather, there may be no fires allowed. This is a pack-it-in, pack-it-out facility.
