Description

You’re going to love what you see at Mills Canyon Campground. It’s remote, the scenery is top notch, and its right by the Canadian River. Plus, the remnants of brick buildings add a nice touch. It is recommended that you bring high-clearance vehicles (not cars or vehicles pulling trailers) as the road leading to camp is very narrow, steep, and winding. The nearby village of Roy was used as a filming location for the Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker flick, Did You Hear About The Morgans?

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!

There are two campgrounds, one upper and one lower. The lower requires four wheel drive but is well worth the trip. The Canadian river runs thru the lower and it is less populated.

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.

The scenery on the drive down is incredible.The canyon cools down quickly once the sun falls below the canyon walls.
