This campground is situated in what was once the historic railroad logging and sawmill town of McGaffey. McGaffey Campground was built in 1937 and lies west of the Continental Divide in the Zuni Mountains, at an elevation of approximately 8,000 feet. It is the largest of the Mt. Taylor Ranger District campgrounds and has a volunteer host on site. Mature ponderosa pine trees provide scenic settings and shade, while small hills provide some privacy. Follow the road past the entrance, staying to the right to access the Oso and Page overnight sites.
Remember to pay attention to road conditions and your vehicle's abilities before driving off of the main road. Please be respectful of our historic heritage as you explore the area.
