Your intuition is correct, Jemez Falls Campground has a waterfall! The campsites themselves are located amongst ponderosa pine trees and forest meadows, plus they have easy access to the East Fork Jemez River. Within a short drive, you can also visit The Valles Caldera National Preserve and Bendalier National Monument. Please supply your own water and pack appropriate clothing for hot days and cold nights. Icy Hot patches are optional.

This is one lovely camp spot. I enjoy the tall shady pines pointing to the night sky chock full of stars. I experienced truly good camp hosts who enforced quiet rules and monitored the area with frequent cart tours. They cleaned the vault toilets every day. There are lovely trails throughout for easy to moderate hiking, a few rock mounds to clamber and explore. Be quiet and respectful, leash your dogs and discourage barking. Nature loving people are here. I will always return here.

This old Raven made his rounds every morning.Sunny spots are plenty among the tall trees, car camping is welcomed.Nights are pleasantly cold.Jemez Falls, a short hike down to a steep climb is well worth it.

Note: As of late 2018, ALL campsites are reservable. Open sites are for one night only. We hosted here for the 2019 summer. Beautiful area.

Such a hidden gem. We loved this, just make sure you bring leashes for the dogs as park rangers will ask you to keep them tied up.

The falls aren’t as big as I wanted then to be, maybe the water wasn’t flowing as hard but more water would have been a nice site.

We camped here and loved it. We almost always camp on Sun-Mon-Tues and usually the campgrounds are pretty deserted! There were a lot of spaces to choose from. Our site had lots of trails behind it-perfect to take the dog for a walk! While we didn't hit the hot springs at the campground, we DID hike up to San Antonio hot springs which was a bit more remote and beautiful. New Mexico is known for raining in the Summer months, so be prepared and take a tarp or something for shelter. Most of the sites in the forest don't have any covered picnic areas. The sites here had plenty of space, along with picnic tables, vault toilets and water faucets near the restrooms. Check out Valle Caldera if you're in the area-stunning!

CampsiteWe loved being in the trees-it helped with rigging a tarp over our tent too.  Major thunderstorms during the night!Our campsite was very spacious.There are beautiful hiking trails full of wildflowers in the campground.  Pet-friendly campground too!
