This campground is free! There are only 6 tables and vault toilets but the scenery is wonderful and you can't beat the location. It's very close to Cloudcroft so you can stock up on supplies or hit a restaurant if you don't want to cook. It's basically a big meadow with sites at the perimeter. There's an unsigned trail leading up into the trees that looks like it used to be a railroad bed.

There's a vault toilet, picnic tables and for rings. What more do you need? This no-fee campground is beautiful. There's an old railroad bed that makes a great hike right at the end of the parking area.
