Capilla Peak is ten miles off the main road. The road is pretty well maintained but still a NM dirt and gravel road. This road is NOT friendly to anything larger than a small TT or van. The last three miles are incredibly steep with gut clenching drops off the side of the road. There are two very small turnouts on a narrow one lane track. You will not be able to allow another vehicle to pass on most of the climb. That being said, the views are (there isn’t a word big enough).
The campground is very nice with shelters perched on the edge of the world. All but three sites are literally on the edge of the drop. All have nice sized tables and metal fire rings. The shelters have sealed roofs allowing a small tent to be set up and protected. There is one large and one small modern vault toilets on site.
There a number of excellent hikes in the area and cell coverage is excellent.
Getting to this campground is an adventure of its own, best suited to tent or van campers, but the views...
This is not a “certified dark sky” location, but very well could be.
