The vibe at Bluff Springs Dispersed Campsites
Drop some Bluff Springs Dispersed Campsites knowledge on us.
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
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!
The best spot to camp is at the top of the stairs, but only if you are backpacking. There is also another trail to the left before going up the stairs that will take you to great backpacking spots. Or just a good dar picnic. Easy camping with access to your vehicle and a toilet would be below near the stream, but there are no trees for shade. There is also a ATV trail further down the road.
