One of my favorite spots in NM

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS :) beautiful scenery and very clean! i liked the set up of the camp ground, very spacious but still felt like a nice community. 10/10 must see.

Love, love, love!

This place is gorgeous! There are tons of spots for dispersed camping. We got a spot along the river which was beautiful but a little windy and noisy from the stream. But we didn’t mind! We came on a Sunday afternoon and passed quite a few people leaving. So other than a few campers, we pretty much had the place to ourselves for 2 nights. It was very peaceful! The road to get there is about 10 miles but it takes about 40 minutes to drive. It’s a little rough and narrow in spots. But totally worth the drive! We will definitely be back!

Nice and cozy

It has 60 RV Spots with hookups, 2 tent areas and some cabins. A playground, pool (closed due to Covid), dog run area and volleyball. The campground is very nice and clean but not too much to do around. They do however have a little store and gift shop and a game room.

Great weekend

Beautiful place to camp. Free campground with plenty of sites. Found a nice trail. Toilets and campground very clean

Beautiful views and Dispersed

We were able to find a very private spot with easy access to the river!(went on a random Saturday) We will be visiting again. Great for our dog too. Some spots are unshaded, so recommend you bring a tent cover or something.

Solid Spot

Road isn’t terrible going up, saw many 2WD vehicles. Good amount of spots but many have no shade/not level. Decent amount of traffic too. For being way out there there’s a lot of day hikers. Overall a fun weekend spot though.

Perfect place to tent camp

We actually stayed down the road about a mile and half from Rio Chama Campground, however we were still in the park and off of Forest Road 151. We camped off-the-grid on a spot right by Rio Chama. We were lucky to have found a spot mid-day and that had a sort of “beach front” type inlet to the river. Definitely a place to launch kayaks or rafts. If you prefer to have bathrooms, head towards the actually marked campground, but if you want to “rough it” then find a dispersed camping lot.

Always remember: PACK OUT WHAT YOU PACK IN!! Please don’t leave your trash at any site and keep the wilderness- WILD.

A really nice spot

We enjoyed our weekend. The creek is very close and accessible, which is probably the highlight. There are plenty of hammock and shade trees. Sipapu resort is very close, so I was able to take my kid for a break from camping to get some “real food” ;) at the cafe. The pit toilets were really clean. My kid mentioned that specifically.

The negatives: Our site was really close to another site, which was not awesome. I prefer campgrounds where the sites are a bit farther apart. The road was not well maintained, but it wasn’t really a problem.

Gorgeous but busy campground

We arrived early on a Tuesday and snagged a tree heavy site on the upper loop. The sites on the outside of the loops are decently wooded, smaller and not well suited to RVs. The sites on the inside of the loops have longer, RV sized pull in and little trees. Vault toilets are well maintained by the very active camp host, Mark. There is potable water from a well two miles down the mountain and trash, but packing out much that can’t be burned is encouraged. Pick up firewood in Pecos, there is enough dead & down tinder at the site. Dogs allowed on leash at all times, quite time begins at 10pm. The closer we got to the weekend, the more crowded and noisy the site became. One night, multiple campers arrived after dark and noisily set up camp. I’m sure the state parks being closed forced more people into the National Forest, but it’s a great site. There are several trailhead and just down the hill is easy access to creeks and fishing. We had great weather, upper 70’s during the day, dipping to low 50’s overnight. Each site has large fire rings with cooking grates and at least one picnic table, some with two. Sites are close together so try to grab one at the end of the loop for a little privacy.

Did not Disappoint

Overall the campsite was great. I think we saw the host but maybe not, however, everything was still very well maintained. At night, when everyone is settling, with a clear sky, you get an amazing view of the stars. The only downside is that you can kind of hear the road traffic in the morning. Not too bad but it’s noticeable. I’ll be coming back for sure though.
