Primarily serving backpackers on trips into the Pecos Wilderness, Aspen Basin Campground is located close the Santa Fe Ski Lodge and is only 15 miles from downtown Santa Fe. This campground provides access to an ultra scenic area, so it can get popular during the summer and fall aspen viewing seasons. Please be prepared to supply your own water.

Drop some Aspen Basin Campground knowledge on us.
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!
