2 Reviews of Fawn Lakes Campground
This is a great spacious campground in the Carson National forest near the Questa ranger station. It is one of the bigger sites with quite a few amenities and many options for sites. There are two small lakes and the river running through the campground that make for good fishing. Plus there are a few hiking trails connected to this park which is super convient!
They have vault style restrooms and a few wash stations with potable water. This camp is located between Questa and Red River where you can find groceries or resturants. A great place to camp with a lot to offer and amazing views!!!

We hung out in the adjacent day use area and trails around the creek and the lake during the day. This area is gorgeous and worth spending time in. The campground wasn't open for the season yet but we walked around it. There are sites right on the river and multiple sizes to accommodate rigs and tents alike. There were vault toilets. There are hiking trails connected to the campground.
The area is beautiful, if we are in the area during season we would definitely stay here for a few days and just enjoy it
