We got to the park at just before 10 a.m. Sunday and found not a soul anywhere to register and/or pay to go hiking. No list of hours or attractions ... nothing. So, we left.

I can't recommend this campground. You MUST call ahead for reservations (505 722-3839 - if the phone is answered), and an employee will meet you to provide a key for bathrooms - if the employee shows up. Lots of deferred... More
