The vibe at Mills Canyon Campground
Drop some Mills Canyon Campground knowledge on us.
This place was HOT! Granted, we decided to camp here in the middle of July-probably not the best choice. There were a lot of flies too. But I think it would be gorgeous in the off-season. The old ranch house and canyon made for some lovely photographs, and it wasn't bad once the sun went down. It was so hot we took a dip in the very muddy river-at that point we didn't care! We had the place to ourselves-not sure if it was because it was mid-week or due to the weather. At any rate, it was a nice place. Quite different from any other place I've been in New Mexico. It was very quiet and the stars were incredible!
I was a little concerned about the access road into the canyon. I found it to be easy to navigate when dry in a loaded pickup truck. A few of the sites have some good shade trees but most sites are most exposed during the day. Campsites were well equipped and the toilets were clean.
