Getting to the campground:
Take NM 35 north from Mimbres. At the sign, turn left. Follow the main dirt road; there are several smaller side roads which you do not want. At a Y, there is (or was when we were there) a sign with an arrow pointing right. Take the right branch. The campground is only a little farther.
About the campground:
There is not much to this campground but the ponderosa pine forest.
However, at least when we visited, this campground is one where you are less likely to be bothered by any neighbors. However, the Forest service says that the campground receives moderate use.
