Although it's only about 15 miles as the crow flies from Grants, it takes a good hour to make the drive to Ojo Redondo. The first portion is gravel, transitioning to a somewhat iffy dirt road once you get inside the National Forest itself. It's doable with a car, at least in dry weather. There are several spots where the road appears to have washed out and been backfilled with gravel, though, so I don't know how passable it is in bad weather. The campground itself is pretty standard Forest Service fare: Vault toilets, no water, and no trash collection. It has plenty of shade, and the sites are easy enough to get into (unlike, for example, the nearby El Morro National Monument). I don't recommend anything bigger than a small trailer, though, because the spaces are short and narrow. I actually had to park my SUV on the side of the road after unhooking, because it would have stuck out into the roadway otherwise. The campground really seems better suited to tent camping, in my opinion. If you get there and find that it's full, though, don't despair. There's a ton of dispersed camping available in the area.
