    Ojo Caliente, New Mexico

    Welcome to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa, a gem nestled in the high country of New Mexico. This spot is perfect if you love hot springs and vintage campers. The campground offers a mix of tent, RV, cabin, glamping, and yurt accommodations, making it a versatile choice for any type of camper.

It's a bit pricey, but many visitors say it's worth every penny. If you plan your visit for early or mid-week, you'll find it less crowded.

    The campground itself is equipped with electric hookups, drinking water, and a sanitary dump station, though the latter comes with an extra fee. The bathhouse is well-maintained, offering hot showers and flush toilets. For those who need to stay connected, there's electricity and Wi-Fi, though cell service can be spotty.

    Foodies will appreciate the on-site restaurant and pub, which has received high praise for its delicious offerings. If you're into hiking, there are trails right from the property and the nearby national forest offers even more outdoor adventures.

    Pets are welcome, and there's a market on-site for any essentials you might need. Just a heads-up, the nearest full-service town is Espanola, about 30 minutes away, so plan accordingly.

    Overall, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa offers a unique blend of relaxation and adventure, making it a must-visit destination for anyone looking to unwind and explore the beauty of New Mexico.

    Natural Features

    Bandelier National Monument protects over 33,000 acres (13,355 ha) of rugged, beautiful canyon and mesa country which features evidence of human presence going back over 11,000 years. Petroglyphs, dwellings carved into the soft rock cliffs, and standing masonry walls pay tribute to the early days of a culture that still survives in the surrounding communities.____ Bandelier National Monument sits at the southern end of the Pajarito (Spanish for "little bird") Plateau. The plateau was formed by two eruptions 1.6 and 1.4 million years ago. Home to the Bandelier Wilderness, Bandelier ranges from 5340 feet (1628 m) at the Rio Grande River to the south and 10,199 feet (3109 m) at the summit of Cerro Grande to the north, almost a mile (1.6 km) of elevation change in just under 12 miles (19 km). This elevation gradient creates a unique diversity of habitats specific to Northern New Mexico. The diversity of habitats and quick access to water supported a relatively large population of Ancestral Pueblo people. Currently, Pi__on-Juniper woodlands dominate in the southern parts of the park transitioning through ponderosa pine savannahs and forests, finally reaching mixed conifer forests at the highest elevation. Scattered throughout the park are desert grasslands, montane meadows, and riparian areas in the canyon bottoms. Over 70 miles (113 km) of trails at Bandelier climb in and out of deep canyons and cross large flat mesas, showcasing the entire spectrum of volcanic geology and ecosystems found within the park.The park is home to over 55 species of mammals including mule deer, Abert's squirrels, mountain lions, black bears, and 16 species of bats. Reptiles and amphibians of all shapes and sizes can be seen. Birds such as Steller's jays, canyon towhees and mountain chickadees stay year-round, whereas turkey vultures, western tanagers, and black-headed grosbeaks are summer residents.

    Tesuque, New Mexico

    The Aspen Basin Campground is located adjacent to the very large parking area at Santa Fe Ski Basin. There are 10 units, Picnic tables, and fire rings. There is a vaulted toilet at the far west end of the parking lot. This campground is less developed than most, and primarily serves those who use it for an overnight stay before embarking on a backpack into the Pecos. There is ample space for trailer/RV camping, but no dump station is available. There is no potable water and no Campground Host. The entire area is very scenic, and NM 475 is also designated as the Santa Fe Scenic Byway. Because of the scenic quality and the easy access from Santa Fe, the area is very busy, especially in the summer and in the fall aspen viewing season.
