The vibe at Purgatoire Campground
Drop some Purgatoire Campground knowledge on us.
My husband initially camped here with friends; he loved it so much he took me back a few weeks later! It was absolutely, hands-down, one of the most beautiful campgrounds I've been to. It's far enough away that I think a lot of people don't go here. It was almost completely vacant. We had such a hard time choosing a site because they were all so lovely. There were vault toilets. Streams, creeks and lakes all over the place. Wildflowers were growing like crazy. My only complaint is that it rained SO much. Thunderstorms always happen in the NM or Colorado mountains-almost nightly. There was a trailhead in the campground that we hiked for quite a while. Rain got worse and worse and finally we went back to camp. Totally worth it.
