A nice campground along the Red River in amongst spruce and ponderosa pines. This campground has a separate loop for tents, providing a separate place for those who want to be farther from the RV generators.

Getting to the campground:
From the stoplight in Questa where NM 522 and NM 38 meet, head east on NM 38, toward Red River. After about 8.3(?) miles, you should see the campground on your right.
Note that the campground is not located where the 1995 Carson National Forest map (nor the 1995 USGS Red River quad) says it is; it is after Elephant Rock campground as you head from Questa to Red River.
About the campground:
The campground is close to the highway, as you can see in this photo (that Suburban is on the highway, not in a campsite).
