Always love driving thru here. Ended up camping out here for a night. Meet some great people. Just don't make the mistake I did and read all the bear poster warnings right before bed. I hardly slept a wink in our little pup tent. Laid and listened to animals moving about all night. (My fault. ) lol

We camped in Maverick campground and really enjoyed our stay. The camp host was very friendly and helpful. We did manage to catch a few fish for a meal but hoped to catch more. Very beautiful setting and very clean bathrooms. Would have appreciated a shower but we made do. Great place to share nature with the kids and have... More

In an incredibly beautiful area, Cimarron Canyon is one of the most beautiful; any time of year. We've seen deer, wild turkey, and even a bear. It's also home to world class fly fishing. Lots of nice camping areas.

This was our second visit to Tolby Campground. We tent camped and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The scenery is gorgeous. We stopped at several places along the road to fish and take photos. Even though it rained every night during our stay, we found the park to be beautiful no matter what the weather is like.

We arrived at midnight so we just pulled in and parked. The next morning at 6:38 the host banged on our door like it was a SWAT raid and said "ya'll ain't got no tag." To which I replied "no, we got in late and we will pay on our way out!" He said "you better pay before the Ranger... More

Plan on a slow drive through the canyon to take advantage of the scenery. There are nice sites for picnicking. We saw a lot of people fishing at various places.

Rode through with a group of friends on motorcycles. Great way to take in all the views. The views are amazing. There are several places you can pull over to take pics or just to take it all in. One of the highlights of our visit to Eagle Nest. Cant wait till next time we visit.

This is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. The fishing could have been better. The water flow of the stream was very low. It appears water is being held in Eagle Nest Lake. Eagle Nest lake looks better than I have seen in over two year.
