Campground Details

Open: Seasonal
Number of Sites: 2 + dispersed

About: Popular camp at 8,133 feet in elevation has 2 sites and dispersed camping with trailhead for hiking seven tough miles to Mt. Withington Lookout. While historic logging and mining days are all but over, many other opportunities exist on the district. Recreational activities include hiking, camping, horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, hunting, and four-wheeling to name a few. To host these activities, the district has five small-developed campgrounds including Water Canyon, Springtime, Luna Park, Beartrap and Hughes Mill.

With limited use of the campgrounds primary recreational values are the many dispersed, primitive, and unconfined acres. Created in 1980, the Apache Kid and Withington Wilderness' are located in the San Mateo Mountains. Some 190 miles of trails are located throughout the district centered primarily in the Magdalena and San Mateo Mountains. Maintained roads total about 500 miles with another 600 miles of unimproved roads. Thompson Canyon is a noted popular rock climbing area with the challenging Enchanted Tower.

Directions: 26 miles southwest of Magdalena via US 60 & FR 549
