Drop some Upper Karr Recreation Area knowledge on us.
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.
This campground is free and not that far from the ranger station and Cloudcroft. There is 6 camping sites, but sometimes the locals (teenagers) will come during the weekend and make there own site deeper in the woods but close by so they may walk by your campground or accidentally into. There is a restroom that is often cleaned and has toilet paper. The cleaner will even take your trash for you. Easy access to the sites. They have fire rings and benches, but sometimes they will move them around. Best spot would be the site on the left side, on the top, close to the trees. You will have a little more privacy and easy access to firewood. Went there for my birthday with family and friends so plenty of room. One of my favorite spots :)
