Drop some Cabresto Lake Campground knowledge on us.
It's a bumpy ride to this campground-I wouldn't recommend it for vehicles that are not 4wd. We camped in one of the designated camp sites, although there are apparently hike-in sites here too. It's a popular place for fishing-lots of peeps coming and going. It's a gorgeous lake to wake up to in the morning. There was one single vault toilet in the parking lot and no water other than the lake. We feel like we got the best site-to the left and on a little hill right before the day use parking lot. 4x4 made it a breeze to drive up to. We were glad we picked up a tarp in red River (great little camp store there), because it rained all evening. We took a nice walk around the lake in the morning. Popular and beautiful.
This is a beautiful and peaceful campground with many solid camp spots. Getting there is VERY challenging unless you have an AWD and high suspension vehicle. Driving up the hill is on a road not suitable for passenger vehicles and is like driving through a very rough empty river bed. We made it in our AWD Mazda CX5 but it was sketchy and we almost turned around for how rough it was. Plan on driving 2-5MPH and being very cautious unless you are in a truck or jeep.
Once you get to the campgrounds there is a decent parking lot, bathroom, and beautiful scenery. Each campsite has a fire pit and some have picnic tables. If you prefer a more secluded spot, hike around the area and you might find some.
Scenery is gorgeous. Well worth it!
