Getting to the campground:
From the town of Pecos, NM, take New Mexico 63 north. Right before you would cross the river, there is a sign pointing to the Holy Ghost campground. Take this road, and almost immediately, there is a turn-off to the right which leads to the campground.
Across the river is the Terrero General Store which offers showers for $5.00.
Note that the road from Pecos is narrow and it has many sharp turns. Expect to take at least half an hour to get from Pecos to the campground.
About the campground:
To the left, you can see an average campsite. Between the truck and the cliff/hillside in the distance is the Rio Pecos. As you can see, it is quite close.
To the right you can see the Rio Pecos as it passes near the campground. This picture shows the river closer to the entrance to the campground than the other pictures (which do not really show the river at all).
To the left is an overview of much of the campground. I took this picture from near the gated cave. Our truck is parked to the right, just outside of the frame.
