The park is known for its friendly staff and well-maintained facilities. You’ll find full hookups for your RV, including sewer, water, and 50 AMP electric service.

    The park has a patriotic theme that some visitors find charming. There’s a heated pool, a large outdoor chess game, and a playground for the kids.

The on-site store is handy for picking up essentials, and the BBQ dinners and ice cream socials are a hit with many guests.

    The sites are gravel and pull-through, making it easy to park even the biggest rigs. While the spots are a bit close together, the overall atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.

    Jamestown, New Mexico

    Welcome to Six Mile Canyon, a dispersed camping area nestled in the Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands in New Mexico. This spot is a hidden gem for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle. The area is known for its peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery, with green canyon bluffs and rolling hills providing a picturesque backdrop.

    One of the standout features here is the sense of seclusion. Visitors have noted that the campsites are spaced far apart, giving you plenty of privacy. It's a great place to unwind and enjoy nature without the crowds. However, be prepared for a bit of a rough ride getting in. The road can be bumpy and muddy, especially after rain, so a vehicle with good clearance or 4WD is recommended.

    While the area lacks amenities like toilets, showers, and drinking water, it makes up for it with its natural beauty and tranquility. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a cozy campfire under the stars. Pets are welcome too, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure.

    For those who need to stay connected, some spots offer decent cell coverage, though it can be spotty depending on your provider. If you're lucky, you might even catch a stunning sunrise or sunset over the canyon.

    Whether you're setting up a tent or parking an RV, Six Mile Canyon offers a serene escape with plenty of room to explore. Just remember to pack out what you pack in and leave no trace to keep this beautiful area pristine for future visitors.

The area is remote with no services. Please be prepared with plenty of food, water, shade, sunscreen and cold weather necessities.__ Traveling to Chaco__ Two roads access Chaco Culture National Historical Park. From the north, Road 7900 turns off of US Hwy 550/44 three miles east of Nageezi and fifty miles west of Cuba. Continue on Road 7900 for five paved miles then turn right onto Road 7950 where the payment will continue for several miles. The rest of the sixteen miles are unpaved. From the south, turn north onto NM Rt. 57 for twenty miles of rough unpaved road. When the unpaved roads are wet (rain, snow, etc.) they can be difficlut to traverse and vehicles can become stuck in thick mud or slide off the slippery road. Please keep in mind that there is no phone service and it is sometimes difficult to get tow service along these roads. Please contact us at 505 786-7014 for the latest road conditions. __ Marijuana on Federal Lands Posted: May 27, 2022 With the legalization of marijuana in the State of New Mexico, Chaco Culture National Historical Park would like to provide clarification regarding the use and possession of marijuana on Federal lands. The recently passed New Mexico State law, which allows for limited recreational marijuana use under certain conditions, has no bearing on Federal laws which continue to identify marijuana as a Schedule I illegal drug, and prohibit its use.__ Possession of marijuana or use of any amount of marijuana is still prohibited in Chaco Culture National Historical Park, its facilities, concessions, and campgrounds.
