The vibe at Three Rivers Campground
Drop some Three Rivers Campground knowledge on us.
Had a great time here during the month of october! there are numerous hikes close to the campgrounds ranging from all expertise-levels. Definitely reccomend it if you want a quick escape from routine and civilization. Before entering the dirt trail into the camground there is a little store with souvenirs but most importantly wood.
You can't beat $6 a night! The trail starts at the end of the loop where there's parking, a water hydrant and vault toilet. I stayed in site #2 which was big enough to accommodate a larger group. Some sites have tent pads and/or shelters. A few sites require parking at the road and a short hop uphill for a great view. I visited in April 2017 and only saw four other sites in use. There was minimal traffic for the Three Rivers Trail. The trail is a really nice hike but after the first bit is strenuous. It's nice that it's along a creek for soaking the feet!
I found this campground on-line recommended for winter camping but at 6,394ft, it doesn't seem like it wold be suitable. Opinions? That's what I'm looking for--good winter campsite in southern New Mexico. Suggestions?
Wonderful Campground and so MANY Memories there............
I Lived in Cloudcroft back in 2008-2010. Camped here a few times with my boys and rode horses with Christi, the Camphost's John's girlfriend. We came through May of 2013 and was sad to see that John, Christi and his grandson was gone....If anyone knows him and where to find him, pass a message along. Last we heard he moved down to Tularosa.
Let him know me and Johnnie Clevenger was there on our honeymoon trip May 2013 and ran out there to visit with him to find he had moved away......:) would like to get back in touch.....
