Amazing views from 9000 feet

This first-come, first served National Forest Service campground has three areas, not including the group area. One area is for horse campers and is right next to the trails that enter into the Pecos Wilderness. Finally, there are lower and upper camping loops. The campground is at the end of the road of the canyon and is up a fairly steep, narrow road. However, it is paved and in fairly good shape and should be passable for most RV’s. Many of the sites are shorter and many of the sites are far from level, so not really a campground suitable for very large RV’s. Several of the sites are set up as double sites for two RV’s. It is a beautiful campground with views of the high peaks in the Pecos Wilderness set among evergreen and aspen trees. At this elevation of around 9,000 feet, it is cooler even on the hottest summer days. There are very clean pit toilets and garbage receptacles, and there are picnic tables and fire rings at each site. There is no potable water and no dump station, nor is there water or a dump anywhere close by, so plan accordingly. There were very polite, helpful and diligent camp hosts during our stay. Since it is non-reservable, plan on getting there early as most sites are taken on the weekend with its proximity to Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
