Hyde Memorial State Park
A nice campground in the Sangre de Cristo mountains outside of Santa Fe. This campground/picnic area is popular, and with good reason. The trailhead for the Hyde Park Loop is nearby, and part of the loop is through the campground.
This campground is right next to Black Canyon.

Getting to the campground:
From the Santa Fe Plaza, head north on Washington Ave. Just past the pink Scottish Rite Temple, turn right on Artist road; the sign says that Hyde State Park and the Santa Fe Ski Basin are this way. Drive about seven miles and you will see the sign for the Hyde Memorial State Park on your right. There are a couple of entrances into the park, which lead to dirt roads which more-or-less parallel the road you drove from Santa Fe on.
About the campground:
Most of the picnic tables are covered by shelters like these. They will come in handy when the summer thunderstorms arrive.
The stream in the next picture is just off the left of this picture.
A stream runs beside many of the campsites. You can see the stream here as it passes campsite 10.
