Slice of heaven

Always a family favorite. No phones (a short ten minute drive if you need it), just fishing and family fun. Large property, fun to walk, hike and the Chama river is beautiful with fishing on the property or a short walk to quality waters.

Large party Group

The area is small but there a few ponds I wouldn’t call them lakes full of trout. Lots of trash in the area looks like a trailer park where you could but meth wish the state would in force laws up in this parts The roads around and leading to are washboard and washed out in places from the rain

Sitedidn’t stay too much trash

Beautiful Scenery but at a Slope

A long dirt road takes you winding up switchbacks into a beautiful mountain scenery. I managed to get through alright in a newer model Honda Civic Sport, but wouldn't suggest it if there was any snow on the ground.

In some of the pull offs into the designated sites you may or will need a 4x4 to…

Great spot right on the river

Spent two nights here in August.  There were 4-5 spots in this area, which is right on the San Juan River.  I was here on a Sunday night / Monday night and it was not crowded.  There were a couple of other folks who were there.  There are a couple of trailheads (about 1/2 mile up the road).  I took…

Great Spot with Bathrooms

This was a great spot right along the river with bathrooms only about 20 mins/8 miles from the Hwy. This spot has a lot of potential to make it however you want, had we of had more time we would’ve gone further up the river because I think there were better spots along the river about a mile up but…

Great place

$10 for non-electric sites. $14 for electric sites. Sites are well spaced apart. Not very busy, even in the month of August. Showers, etc. Would definitely come again.

New Mex. State parks have a great deal

This is a beautiful part of the state. Not to hot, as it is above 7000 feet elevation. Trails, lake, boating, and wildlife watching.

Boondocking in a Parking Lot

Set your expectations to an asphalt parking lot with spaces marked off for campers/rv/tents. If you can pull in facing the lake it's a fabulous view!! We stayed 4 nights Latter July the nights were cool with lows of 49- 55. We will be back for a few days now and then!

All paved, no trees

There might have been some grass and trees elsewhere but the large area we were in is all paved with a little dirt area for picnic table. The lake was nice.

Lots of trails to explore

Clean bathrooms, well for water wasn't working but area was awesome and little trails to explore were fun and a rock that was perfect to lounge on made the stay worth it. We were in our rooftop tent , worked out great.

Day or Overnight Trip

Tent and RV sites are large and spread out. Some sites have livestock pens, but I’m not sure on the campground policies. Hopewell Lake has tables for day picnics and is a popular fishing location. Be prepared for summer monsoon rains.

Beautiful site in the middle of the woods

We actually showed up with a downed tree blocking half the site from a recent storm, but the camp host quickly took care of it. This site is thickly wooded with a beautiful river flowing close by. The campsites were clean and well maintained, and the campground did not feel crowded. My only regret…
