Overall Rating

Nice little USFS campground on the bank of the Rio Grande river. Most (all?) of the sites are within sight and earshot of the river, so although this campground is not far off highway 149, you can't hear the road at all. Very popular with fishermen.

Downsides are about what you'd expect from a free campground: no drinking water, no trash service, etc. The pit toilet is also quite primitive.

Also, the last part of the entrance road is narrow with curves and some steep dips. Large RVs (or those with a lot of overhang) may not do well. And the turnaround at the end of the campground is quite tight; full-size pickups need to reverse to make the turn, which is problematic if you're towing anything.
