Fishing and hiking are the activities of choice at El Rito Campground. And once you’re tuckered out, there is plenty of space to grill up a mouthwatering burger or breakfast burrito. The only question is, are you going to top it off with red chile, green chile, or Christmas style (a mix of both)?

This spot was way better than I imagined. The camping is sort of dispersed but there were bathrooms where we stayed. We pulled in past some RVs and down a dirt road a little and then this beautiful, grassy oasis nestled between trees and the river and these crazy orange rock formations came into view. There was a picnic table under the tree, a log to cross the river, and stars forever. You can tell by how easy it is to find firewood that it doesn't get a lot of traffic, so it had a nice maintained yet secluded feel to it. It's an easy drive to any of the rock climbing areas and that cobblestone is top notch! The campsite is closest to Little River Wall (beautiful, quiet, and you are practically belaying from a stream).

The landscape on the ride into El Rito is a real treat.El Rito is a premier rock climbing destination and Super Slab is the place to be to warm up in some great morning sun.You really are right on the river.The crag is very dog friendly :)
