Description

Located in the scenic “whale’s vagina" canyon, ok actually the San Diego Canyon, Vista Linda Campground offers exactly what its name implies – pretty views. Enjoy the red rock canyon and mesa panoramas from your tent year round. Expect to experience warm days and cool nights in the summer and chilly winter temps. If you can bear the cold, there is some excellent fishing to be had on the Jemez River, which is conveniently located next to the campground, just make sure you have a valid State fishing license.

Great spot, offers picnic tables with a roof over them. Beautiful views of the red rock canyons, you're right there with them! Very private campsites, you're in your own little bubble of trees. It's in the Jemez mountains so you're close to the Gilman Tunnels, Fenton Lake, and a historical landmark where you can walk through some ruins. Very neat spot! We came here when we weren't able to get a camp site at Fenton Lake and from what the woman at the bath houses told me, there are always open spots here because not many people know about that campground.
