Terrific campsite, right on top of the Santa Fe National Forest. If you follow the road until you can't go any further, you've made it. The campsites are close to the restrooms, adjacent from the big parking lot by the Ski Resort. There are two streams near by and multiple trails to choose from. The campsites are quite big; allowing the option to pick and chose where to pitch your tent. Make sure to stop along the way up at the view points!
