1 Review of Cimarron Canyon
Beautiful Canyon

We stayed here on the way to Taos New Mexico. The canyon is along highway 64 in between Cimarron and Taos. The Cimarron Canyon State Park runs for about 8 miles along the base of the canyon. The park has 4 small roadside campgrounds which have good facilities and camp hosts. The sites aren’t the best but the nightly fee is only $10. We found room at two of the camps during the summer peak season without a reservation. The canyon has suffered from major wildfire events in recent years, especially on the eastern side. The forest is in better shape as you rise in elevation closer to Taos. The elevation is around 7500. So the temps stay fairly moderate even in the summer. The Cimarron River runs through the canyon with great fishing as well.
