Loved it! New Mexico campgrounds often feel rural, even in the middle of summer! It was a bit hot, but we had shade & were able to soak our feet (and our dog!) in the lake. People were fishing on the lake, and the fish were popping out of the lake. There were owls and frogs/toads too! Do go on the very short hike to see the dino footprints... awesome!
