Great spots, but a little too close to other people.

FSR 181 B is a dispersed corridor, and on the little stretch of road there are like 6 sites. They aren't super close, but closer than I expected from dispersed camping. Travel further down 181 across the little canyon and there are more spread out sites, but they are also more exposed.

  • Our site, kind of in the middle.

Caters to smaller camp trailers and tents

First, this campground is clean and well kept; Pavement throughout. However, if you are coming with a large RV, you may not find a suitable space. They advertise up to 40’, but there are only a few sites that can accommodate anything that large. We have a 25’ fifth-wheel and there were a lot of…

  • we fit in this space with barely enough room to park our truck. 😩

Very clean & nice camp host

My family stayed here last weekend at site 29 (a tent-only site like 27&28). 26 is handicap and 27 and 28 have shade all day. 29 does not have shade however you can go up behind the site where there’s a nice clearing where we set up a few chairs and table to play board games. These sites have…

Lovely escape from the desert

Jemez Springs is a little over an hour from our house. The drive and the entire area are astonishingly beautiful, towering red cliffs, meandering river. Small campgrounds are along the river.

At Jemez Falls, the campground is trees and forest floor. Fragrant and cool. Reservations are needed and…

Beautiful

This is an artist paradise. So many beautiful land formations and gorgeous sunsets. The campground includes a bath house with laundry room and electric hookups if needed. $30 to tent camp (no electric). Lodging, yurts and cabins, are also available.

Small area, nice creek

Sites were far enough from everyone else, but where right on the only road in and out. This is a popular spot between angel fire and taos. Not too primitive.

Jemez perfection

Spacious campground with big old pines with a beautiful creek flowing through. Access to good trails for day hiking. One of the best camping spots I’ve visited. Stayed on a Sunday night - was quiet and peaceful.

Very nice campground. Camp host, Dawn, was very pleasant. No luck fishing but several people around us were catching very nice sized trout.

Vault toilets were well stocked and clean. Trails near b for hiking and biking

Extra dispersed campsites up dirt road from campground entrance

Nice camp hosts

The campgrounds is nicely laid out and decent. There isn't much for shade or privacy. The camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. There are nice trails that you can hike or mountain bike. Some are near cliff edges and not for the beginners. The lake is nice for New Mexico and sees a lot of use.…

Wonderful

It was great. We felt VERY safe and noticed regularly patrolling park rangers. I walked into the restrooms and they were in the middle of cleaning them. It was very clean and no trash anywhere on the grounds. Water spigots are everywhere, too. Well-stocked lake.

Great for a river trip

We visited memorial day weekend 2021 with a group of 6. This spot is beautiful with a good amount of tree coverage. It's an easy dirt road drive down the river and you will pass many dispersed site and a couple of defined camping grounds. The sites are all close to the river and at most a quick…

Close to Bandelier and Los Alamos
