2.3 acres of undeveloped farmland on the banks of the Rio Grande, 3 miles from the charming little town of Dixon, NM, a haven for artists and vintners. Great galleries and wineries, plus a local brew pub within walking distance of the site. Not many amenities, but they're not far away. Access to apple, peach, pear, plum trees, and grapes when in season. Great for tent camping

2.3 acres of undeveloped farmland on the banks of the Rio Grande, 3 miles from the charming little town of Dixon, NM, a haven for artists and vintners. Great galleries and wineries, plus a local brew pub within walking distance of the site. Not many amenities, but they're not far away. Access to apple, peach, pear, plum trees, and grapes when in season. Great for tent camping or a small trailer. Close to beautiful hiking, the Rio Grande Gorge, Taos. New Wave Rafting is nearby, for white water adventures. Gorgeous views, good people if you want company and privacy if you just want to watch the river go by...

Aurolyn was very accessible by phone and very helpful. Suggestion: create better directional signage to campsite. Observations: misleading description provided including site IS NOT on the Rio Grande but next to a small and shallow runoff "creek". The creek is muddy and the bank is conjested with weeds. The creek is uninviting with a very rough rock and pebble shore. You would not want to bath in this water. The local brew pub is a cool hangout but NOT within a safe walking distance. The property owner adjacent to the campsite has a FULL AND CLEAR view and can see EVERYTHING you do. There is no place to hide! The only time I attempted to use the "outhouse" near the site it was locked. I stayed an additional night only because I did not want hassle with taking down the campsite for this additional night.

Mark, I wonder if you were in the right place. Because the campsite goes right up to the river and it's 100 feet wide there -- not a "creek" by any stretch! Water runs too fast for safe swimming (there is white-water rafting). Sorry about the outhouse! I did ask the caretaker to leave it open, but I make sure to double-check in the future. Happy to offer you a free night on your way back to make up for your disappointing time, if you like.
