Great place to hike away into your own campsite

They're a few areas that have a camp site established there but we chose to hike off into the trees and find our own spot. There are plenty of trails and campsites in the trees. Not a super popular area so they aren't too many people to fight over campsites with. They're are bathrooms there near…

Upper Karr Canyon Campground is located in New Mexico


From Cloudcroft, take NM130 south and turn right onto NM6563 (Sunspot Scenic Byway).  Continue along the Sunspot Highway for around 7 miles and to your left, just over the ridge you'll see a sign for the Upper Karr Recreation Area.  This road can be difficult to spot so keep your eyes open.
