About Big Tesuque Campground

Big Tesuque is a walk in campground not conducive to trailer or RV campoing. There are 10 units, Picnic tables and grills, and  Vaulted toilets in the parking lot.  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 large stands of aspen, the area is very busy, especially in the fall aspen viewing season. There are additional recreation opportunities along NM 475, both above and below Big Tesuque Campground, including hiking and biking trails, picnic areas, and in the winter. both nordic and alpine skiing. Tesuque is pronounced "Tess-U-key"

3 Reviews of Big Tesuque Campground
Roadside hillside wide open camp ground.

Quiet at night, not much privacy and road noise.

Absolutely beautiful! If you're tent camping, it's perfect! And it's free. What a gem!!

If you have an RV, Hyde Park Sate Park is where you want to be. If you're tent camping, Big Tesuque is AMAZING!! It's small, but absolutely beautiful. Each site has a picknick table and a tent pad. There are basic toilets. No showers, no sinks. But there are 2 streams bordering the campground and trails leading into the mountains.

When I was there, it was 5 to 10 degrees warmer than Hyde Park! (end of May.)

Creeks!

This campground is beautiful and has two creeks running along either side. There aren't many spots but it is free and there is a toilet.
