Cosmic Campground is located in New Mexico


The campground is located 8 miles north of Alma, NM off US Highway 180. There is a brown Forest Service sign opposite the entrance; about half way between milepost 37 & 38 and marked by the “Friends of the Cosmic Campground” signs. Turn, cross the cattle guard, and drive about 1.3 miles.  Cosmic CG Locator Map
