Probably the most popular camp in the area, Black Canyon Campground is just eight miles from downtown Santa Fe. There’s a choice one mile hiking trail loop from the campground if you need to break the hiking boots in, and nearby trails are also available for mountain biking. A friendly campground host is available for any questions or assistance, and an RV dump station is available next door at Hyde Memorial State Park. A small fee applies.

Love it! Not far from Santa Fe, well maintained campsites and surrounded by trees :) They have no water this season, so make sure to bring your own!

It’s nesteled up the hillside with loads of shade with sites really nicely spread out between trees so it feels quiet and secluded. Grab one of the outside spots at the top of the hill to get the scenery to yourself. And make sure to explore the trails nearyby, they wind all over the hills.

This is a very nicely renovated forest service campground. The sites are all very level, electric sites are available and all sites have one of those posts with a hook so you can hang a lantern. There are so many things to do in the area it's hard to decide where to start. Santa Fe is just 8 miles away down the mountain. Hyde Memorial State Park is next door with hiking trails. There are lots of trails to choose from both above and below the campground along the highway. At the top is the Santa Fe Ski Area with more trails and chair lift rides. Try the lift when the fall leaves are at their peak!
