Nice & Scenic

Campsites are well-developed and maintained. The facilities were clean and stocked with tp. Was only half-full on weekend. Many beautiful trails and forest roads nearby.

Relaxing weekend getaway

Came recommended by a friend. Beautiful secluded spot in the Manzanos. Nice kid-friendly trails adjacent to the campground. We had a nice shady site, some others seemed more exposed.

Nice location

This is not the state park campground. This is the NFS campground in beautiful setting. No reservation required. Right next to trailheads. Great Mountain biking on forest roads that link canyons. Toilets but no water so come prepared.

Great place in the woods

Great camp with most hook ups. They don't have sewer but they do have a dump station. Mostly back in spaces so pay attention what side your door is on and opens to. Very nice place. Good water pressure. Great TV reception from Alb, NM TV stations. Lot of radio stations too.

Free for 2 More Years!

This is a FREE campground but plans are in the works to started charging in 2 years at $10/night. There are gravel tent and parking pads, picnic tables,…

Humble but still pretty nice

We live in Albuquerque, but wanted to spend a day hiking the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. Kiva RV Park is just a 5 minute drive from the NWR, so we stayed there on a Friday night, so we could get up bright and early for our hiking the next day.

The folks running the place were very…

A solid stop

Every year, we drive from Texas to Apache National Forest. Cibola is halfway. Every year, we make sure to stay the night at Water Canyon. First: the views. Secondly, the amenities. A level spot, with a fire ring, table and maintained vault toilets for $0. The most spacious spots are the first two,…

Better sites up the road

Campground itself was closed due to the Covid-19 stuff going on. Decided to drive into the mountains more instead of turning right into the campground, and didn’t regret it. Took us out to copper trail 10 and there were 4-5 sites with fire rings already there. Beautiful area in the valley, and old…

Nice for overnight

Nice place for an overnight stay. Owner is nice, laundry, showers & restrooms. Close to highway, which you hear, but nice stop for just an overnight. Takes Good Sam & Passport.

Pleasant place, strange people

Have to agree with an earlier review of this site--the place is great, everything you'd want in a campground, but we encountered some strange visitors as well. We almost didn't stay because of the seemingly sketchy activity going on here, but it ended up being alright, and the campground itself is…

Great sites... sketchy visitors

This campground was great! Trails nearby, picnic tables, fire pits, and pit toilets.... Nice trees, good shade! We enjoyed smores that night! Lots of flies though...

However... while we stayed here there was a lot of strange traffic. We are guessing drug deals? All night long cars would come and…

  • Climbing down the road!
  • Hills nearby.

cibola national forest

Although there was no camping at all in the park. There was beautiful scenic trails. Lots of rock climbing opportunities and spectacular views and photo oppurtunities. My family had a blast and spent the whole day hiking and discovering our newest adventure.
