Description

You’ll feel like you’re sitting high on the Iron Throne from your camp chair at Iron Gate Campground, which sits up at 9,000 feet in the Santa Fe National Forest. With Pecos Wilderness in your realm, you can freely roam the lands. Have your squire prepare your saddle for some horseback exploration, or just go for a hike. Or just sit around the campfire and talk about Game of Thrones all day, any way you do it, you’re going to have a good time.

I love this place! The road can be a little rough especially after wet weather. The views are great and there are lots of places in the area to explore. This makes a good base camp.
