Just 13 miles north of Taos is Cuchilla Campground. What it lacks in number of sites it definitely makes up for with fishing access to the Rio Hondo and hiking in the Columbine Hondo Wilderness Study Area. While you’re here, why not take this tour of labyrinths in the area?

Great little campsite on a creek. Easily accessible, on the road from Taos up to the Ski area. The best sites (in my opinion) require carefully crossing the creek. This drowns out any road noise and all you can hear is the gentle sound of the water running by. No cell service (a plus!), but close to town, if you need WIFI/service/supplies. Great little trail along the creek going upstream worth checking out - perfect for morning meditation!

The sites by the creek fill up fast but it is well worth it. Also, going across the road and up the mountain is easier places to get firewood.
