Experience SAWUURA! The 100 acre UU Woods.
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 UU’s and friends? Then welcome to SAWUURA. Located five 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 Tucson, Flagstaff or Phoenix is approximately 4 hours.
Tent sites are nestled in the trees close to the creek bed. Picnic tables and shade awnings are provided in a central gathering area with a complete outdoor kitchen. There is a nice cabin, The Winter Cabin, with a wood stove and basic amenities, two Summer Cabins that are being refurbished and The Original Rock House, which we plan to refurbish soon. There is a gravity-fed water system that brings water to sinks and solar showers near the campsites. SAWUURA will feed your soul and spirit.
