“Remote and beautiful!”

Overall Rating

All of the campgrounds in Rio Grande del Norte National Monument are very similar. They're small, clean and many sites have views of the canyon. Verizon worked with a booster for voice calls, and without the booster reception was spotty. Data was non-existent. AT&T worked fine for data, we actually found that it was better un-boo... more

“Great campground, but this area is no longer a secret!”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2017

Overall Rating

Arrived noon on a Friday and there were, in my experience, lots of people here. 5 of 6 Big Arsenic sites taken, all 4 Montoso sites taken, but only 1 of Little Arsenic's sites were taken. There will be 5 of 6 sites here taken as we have friends in. This CG is quiet, well-appointed and includes water (which was broken last time we were ... more

Good hiking trails. Not a bad site among the several loops/campgrounds we visited. Pit toilets, water available. Camping is $7/night, there is a ... more

“Beautiful scenery but too much traffic”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2017

Overall Rating

Tent camped here 2 nights with my dog. My one complaint is because of the trail there is noise and foot traffic throughout the day including early morning hikers. I moved to the Montoso campground which was much quieter as there is no trail. Nightly rate is $7 but 3.50 with senior pass. Water and vault toilet onsite.

“Spectacular views smack on the rim of the gorge.”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2016

Overall Rating

Small campsite perfect for dry camping, peace and quiet. Only a few campsites here, all along the rim, no services other than very clean pit toilets. Hiking trail that goes down to the convergence point of the Rio Grande and Red Rivers, strenuous but oh so worth it. But the view and the quiet... plus: No noise, no traffic, no crowds, a... more
