This is a small, developed camping area right on the Rio Grande River. It is not recommended for large RVs or long/wide trailers because the access road going down into the site is narrow and steep. The recently remodeled area has 7 camp sites with picnic tables and fireplace rings. No trash facilities. Pit toilets, water pump. Volunteer host! The river is right there and is a safety hazard to children if unsupervised. Be careful !
The area offers fishing access to the Rio Grande River, and is a put in – take out point for summer rafting. Even though the grounds sit next to State highway 149, there is little highway noise as the campsites sit down below the road in the river bottom.
