|A nice campground in amongst Aspen and Fir. Most of the campsites here are across the stream from the road, reducing the road noise somewhat.|

Getting to the campground:
From Taos, take US 64 towards Angel Fire. After 10-15 miles, the campground will be on the south side of the highway.
About the campground:
This campground has tall trees (Aspen, Fir, Cottonwoods), chokecherries (with berries 8/11/00), clematis, thimbleberry, and lots of wild roses. The tall trees provide lots of shade to many of the campsites.
The road is not far away, so road noise may be a problem.
Site 11, at the end of the campground appears to be the nicest. Site 8 is also nice. The photo here is of campsite 4.
