The vibe at Black Canyon Campground
Drop some Black Canyon Campground knowledge on us.
This is a very nicely renovated forest service campground. The sites are all very level, electric sites are available and all sites have one of those posts with a hook so you can hang a lantern. There are so many things to do in the area it's hard to decide where to start. Santa Fe is just 8 miles away down the mountain. Hyde Memorial State Park is next door with hiking trails. There are lots of trails to choose from both above and below the campground along the highway. At the top is the Santa Fe Ski Area with more trails and chair lift rides. Try the lift when the fall leaves are at their peak!
It’s nesteled up the hillside with loads of shade with sites really nicely spread out between trees so it feels quiet and secluded. Grab one of the outside spots at the top of the hill to get the scenery to yourself. And make sure to explore the trails nearyby, they wind all over the hills.
