“Nearly Excellent”

Reviewed Oct 03, 2018

I think there were 12 RV sites with water and electricity. No sewer. 3 tent sites. Clean women's restroom (1 person at a time) and a sink between the men's and women's bathrooms to wash dishes. No shower. All RV sites are pull through. The Rio Grande is across the street through a narrow path. Good if you want to sit on the bank and fi... more

“Inside the Rio Grande Gorge and right along the river”

Reviewed Jun 01, 2017

Pilar Campground was the first of a string of campgrounds along the river-side access road. Maybe not our favorite but a great place to stay anyway, and it was the last spot available in the whole area right before Memorial Day. A few miles South of Taos, turn right on Highway 570 into the National Monument area and the Pilar Campgroun... more
