Overall Rating

According to their website, this campground is open May to November. It is October 3rd, and the site is closed. :( Not happy about that at all; we’d wanted a cheap place fairly close to Taos, and this certainly fit the bill. It’s just a couple of miles outside of Taos, and had vault toilets along with picnic tables and I believe fire rings (we were driving by and I was trying to look as we drove, so I’m not positive about the fire rings but I am the vault toilets and picnic tables). If there was any internet, it was pretty questionable; it’s right about here that I lost the internet for about 30 minutes or so as we drove.

We’d like to try it again; hopefully they’ll be open next time. It was a pretty area, that’s for sure. Absolutely beautiful.
