Nice campground with creekside sites. Sites are a bit close together but could be worse, it certainly helps to get there early to pick the best site. Close to town and not far out of Santa Fe. Downsides are that it is pretty popular and people don's seem to want to haul their trash out so lots of broke bottles around. Road to get there is potholed but passable by smaller vehicles.
There were a lot more spots to camp (with a tent) than they advertise!
Stayed labor day weekend 2020. Make sure you drive in and find a camp site before you pay. It was VERY busy. No water or showers available. It is a very beautiful place, with a lot to see and explore. We loved it and can not wait to go back.
We spent the day here hiking and picnicking. There is a fee for day use ($8) same price each night for camping. Vaulted toilets and bear proof trash cans. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table. There is a group site that needs to be reserved. We plan on coming back to camp.
Nice, shaded spots with fire pits and picnic tables. Clean vault toilets but no water, be sure to take your own. Plenty of nearby hiking and fishing. Gets busy on the weekends so get there early to get a spot. Saw a deer walk right by our campground during the evening hours. We will definitely be going back. So many stars at night!
Amazing campground right next to the Pecos river! Get there early, Friday or even Thursday, it does get filled fast. Beautiful hiking trail nearby. No water though, but toilets are clean and campgrounds are nice. Forest Ranger is nice, came by every day. Fee is $8 per night, but totally worth it. Plenty of fish for fishing as well.
