“Peaceful stop”

Overall Rating

This is a perfect little (FREE) stop on your way to or from ABQ. Peaceful campground right within the National Monument which has several great trails for exploring. We loved it here!

“Beautiful, clean, convenient”

Reviewed Jan 03, 2018

Overall Rating

Great little campground, well maintained and clean. Lots of tree cover, so choose your site wisely if you need sun for solar charging. I wouldn't bring a big rig here (stated max is 27 feet, I think that's pushing it), but it's a charming spot to enjoy El Morro. The National Monument is fantastic - hike up to the top and enjoy the ... more

We stayed on 10-31-16, a Monday. No trick or treaters in sight. Only 1 other camper. Nice amenities as described by others but water already off for the season. Interesting hiking from visitor's cnt past yr's old grafitti & if you take upper trail extension, past Anasazi ruins & great views. Left after only 1 day as we'd traveled from... more

“Quiet little campground near El Morro Monument”

Reviewed May 16, 2017

Overall Rating

Tent camped here for 2 nights; when I arrived on Sunday the campground was almost full but by Monday most sites were vacant. Nice place esp. since there is no charge. This time of year (May) was windy. The campsites are large compared to other places and the tent pads are gravel which is a nice change. There was no water and NPS sa... more

“Very nice small campground, removed from the traffic of the El Morro Monument on a private loop”

Reviewed Sep 14, 2016

Overall Rating

I am sorry I did not take more pictures of the camping area. I found that it was clean and there were only two campers in the campsite so we each had plenty of room. The Elk bugled in the evening and early morning and it was a beautiful sunset and sunrise. Being the week before Labor Day the weather was beautiful, with rain showers on ... more

“Yes – nice little campground!”

Reviewed May 02, 2016

Overall Rating

It is a small loop with only 9 sites of varying size; they state “Max 27ft vehicle” but I think it can take a bit bigger depending on availability. Our RV is 28ft nose to tail. Friday Late April we arrived with only one site taken by a tenter. We took site 6 as it was tree-free for our solar panels, and was quite big enough for RV an... more

“Nice little free campground.”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2015

Overall Rating

Nice little place, quiet while I was there, though I hear it can get crowded over the summer. Each site has a tent pad, picnic table, and fire ring. There isn't room for a big rig but a small one would fit nicely at most of the spots. The pit toilet was clean, there's trash and recycling available, though the water was turned off for t... more
