“Attractive campsites overlooking Lake Roberts”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2017

Overall Rating

As others have stated this is probably the nicest campground in this area of the Gila Forest. It can be windy at times due to the elevation esp. if you are at one of the sites with a view.

“Secluded campground with great views and close to Gila Cliff Dwellings.”

Reviewed Mar 18, 2017

Overall Rating

We camped here in late January and when we arrived there was only one other camper who left that same day, so we had the place to ourselves. The campground is set on top of a mesa off of the 35 with views overlooking Lake Roberts. The sites are well-kept with picnic tables and fire rings. They do turn the water off during the winter, s... more

“Great "back to nature" campground with scenic views!”

Reviewed Nov 05, 2016

If you are coming from Deming, NM on US 180, watch for the turn onto NM 61, then a short stretch of NM 152, and then take NM 35 to the lake. Don't be tempted by NM 15, even if your GPS says to go that way, it is full of hairpin turns and steep grades. Check it out on google maps before you start. I noticed that (on my unit, at least), ... more

“Great place to unplug”

Reviewed May 23, 2016

Overall Rating

Dry camped two nights in Mesa campground. Site 4 nice enough for Saturday night pickings. Moved Sunday when campground cleared out to site 15 for nice view of Lake Roberts. We got to watch helicopters bucket water out of the lake (to fight a fire that didn't impact us at all) so that was different and interesting. We enjoyed two peacef... more

“Unplugged and Wild {NO cell or wifi}”

Reviewed Feb 05, 2015

Overall Rating

First let me say that we camped here in the winter (beginning of Feb) so there was no one else camped here (except the camp host who we never saw). Basically we had the place to ourselves. It could be a different story in summer when this place may get packed. We also drove up 35 from Silver City...if you take hwy 15 you'll have a whit... more

Our stop between Marfa and Sedona was not exactly planned out, so being open to possibility provided the option of the Gila Cliff Dwellings. The National Forest and Monument is located in the midwest s...
