Beautiful spot, beautiful forest! We were blown away, you would never guess this is all in the US, much less New Mexico. Lush forest and so many canyons and hiking trails. This spot is beat enjoyed by hiking up the stairs by the waterfall and picking an area to set up camp, it is easy to spot a few places tucked around where others have stayed before. It is well worth it to carry your gear, in the first spot we chose at the bottom our neighbors, though friendly, had a generator running all night, not cool! We couldn't hear it above. The area has access to trails as well, we saw many elk on our morning hike. There are bears too, we didn't see any but you will want to raise your food or keep it in the car. Gross bathroom is the only downfall

This is our setup, we camped along the creek.View of the area from the road, hike up above the waterfall for the best spots!One of the meadows near the springs, all potential camping spots!Early morning hiking up into the canyon

Visited, didn't camp at Bluff Springs

In fact, we heard about it through a nice couple at Academy and decided to go while we were prepping gear in El Paso. To say the least, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The waterfall is bit smaller than anticipated, but the surrounding area is amazing and worth the drive.

Here's a quick Aerial/Drone footage of the area:

This place was beautiful! Even though we were right off the road, we loved it! Next time we'll take advice and carry our gear up over the waterfall for a spot with a few more trees. Nobody else camped here the night we were here, so it was extremely peaceful. The next day we drove further up the road and really loved those dispersed camping sites as well. Well worth seeking out if you desire something a bit more remote!
