From the stoplight in Questa where NM 522 and NM 38 meet, head east on NM 38, toward Red River. After several miles, you should see the campground.
About the campground:
The sites are nicely developed, as you can see here.
In spite of how it may appear here, they did not place the tables in a lake. It had just finished pouring and hailing when I took this photo.
