Lake Alice campground in Sugarite Canyon State Park is open year-round, and conveniently located near the road. You can reserve many of the campsites here over the web or via phone. However, for a nicer campground, check out the nearby Soda Pocket campground.

Here you can see site 6, another with hookups.
Across the road are six sites for overflow camping. Oddly, on Labor Day 2004, people were camped here when there was still one open site at Soda Pocket Campground.
