“Gorgeous place, with views of the lake”

Overall Rating

I stayed here for a few nights in July 2017, and loved it! I was passing through Chimayo, and found out about this campsite nearby, and it worked out great!

It's a small campground, and the best sites are perched right above the lake, with marvelous views. Sites have shade structures and picnic tables, and there is a pit toilet. I also had excellent T-Mobile cell service.

There's a hiking trail down to lake level, which takes you to some lovely shady spots around the south side of the lake. All in all, a great place to stay, and well worth the $7!

There's just a bit of dirt road to get up here, but it was in good condition when I drove it.

Beautiful campground, overlooking a lake, with snowy mountains in the background and an incredible sunset. We were the only ones there! Pit toilets there if ya need 'em.
