Big Boondocking Area

Was exploring for a weekend campsite and turned north on hwy 485 just south of Jemez. After a few miles you get the opportunity to pass thru the Gilman Tunnels along the Jemez creek. For the next 11 miles there are numerous dispersed camping areas; however, vehicles are not allowed between road and river. After the 11 miles the river designation changes and becomes smaller. Continuing north there are countless opportunities for dispersed camping with sites on both sides of road. The road will eventually lead into Hwy 126 with several developed campground. The place we chose was about 4 miles south of Hwy 126, a large area designed to accommodate up to perhaps 40 sites. It was across from some tent rocks which also had a campsite. Cool area and especially good for large groups. Several large campers could make a weekend community here.
