Located at over 7,000 feet of elevation, Lobo Canyon Campground’s pinon, juniper, and ponderosa pine provides some fine shade and privacy for its visitors, meaning a little boom-chicka-wow-wow isn’t out of the question. There is one group site and a group picnic area first built back in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC). Take a scenic drive and you’ll see Mt. Taylor, the highest point in northwest New Mexico. It’s a sacred place to Native Americans, so just pinky swear that you’ll be on your best behavior.

This campground is not well reviewed on other sites, but I'd like to make the case. Beautiful tree cover, a really sweet group cook/picnic building, and several small camp sites. Now this is great for us as we have a small bus. I would not recommend pulling your gigantic Torque Fifth Wheeler up there, you won't be able to turn around. On the road in there are some terrific boondocking sites along Lobo Canyon Creek that are more forgiving of larger campers. Great location, free camp, vault toilets and picnic area - it's free, what's not to like? Check out our links to free campgrounds on fearlessbus dot com.
