Campground Description

Be extremely cautious with fire and use only the fireplaces provided. please do not cut down trees or shrubs; they provide natural scenery and shade-not firewood. Please do not carve on the trees. Carving leaves a wound where fungus can enter and kill the tree.Please do not deposit fish remains in the lakes and clean fish away from the water faucets. Please wrap fish remains and other highly spoilage meats, food, etc., in small plastic bags, bread wrappers, or newspapers before putting them into garbage receptacles. By tightly wrapping the remains flies and odors can be eliminated or greatly reduced. Please do not put unwrapped remains into the garbage receptacle.Please crush and compact boxes, milk cartons, cans etc., before putting them into garbage receptacles - more garbage will fit into the containers if compacting is done.Please pick up litter around your campsite and put it in the receptacle. Also please read and comply with the posted regulations.Thank you for your help; enjoy your visit!!

    Our family of 6 LOVED this area. It is away from the rest of the world, with only a short and beautiful drive from Santa Fe. The kids ages ranged from 2 to 10. The creeks were too much fun for them. We bought fresh eggs along the way, saw cows, heard coyotes, and even saw a bear. It is our favorite place to vacation and we will be back every single year.
