Very remote and quiet. Near wonderful hiking trails and nice road for biking. Night sky was amazing! If it had electricity and flush toilet, I would give it a 10. We had a very nice three days. - ryderruns

The actual rate was $3.50 per night, which reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount. This is not a campground you will happen across, but if you do go to the trouble to find it, you will be rewarded. The 13 mile drive from highway 522 is slow but is easy and all on paved roads. Do study the directions on the website as your GPS may take you on a "shortcut" down a gravel road. The campgrounds are laid out on short gravel spurs off of a 6 mile paved loop road. You will want to stop at the fee/information station as you enter the site. The map you will get is critical to being able to find your way around. In terms of sites suitable for RVs, there are 5 areas. They are as follows : El Aquaje with 7 campsites, La Junta with no campsites except a handicap site, Montoso with 4 campsites, Little Arsenic Springs with 6 campsites, Big Arsenic Springs with 6 campsites. Many of the sites are fairly unlevel, but they are all well-separated and beautiful. This is really a campground for smaller RVs. There is fresh water for filling a tank, but there is no RV dump. There are vault toilets. There are no campsites that can be reserved. There is a Visitor Center that is open during the prime season and when staff is available during the off-season. There are great hiking and biking trails. Our Verizon phone worked well. Our Verizon data worked most of the time if we used our booster. This is certainly a campground we will return to. - TheJim

Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $7. Pit toilets, no hookups, but threaded faucets scattered throughout campground. Sites level and very widely spaced. It's a 13 mile drive from highway 522 to the campground areas (there are several, but each just has a handful of sites) but it is paved all the way. Roads in the campgrounds themselves are gravel, but mostly in decent shape. Some were washboard. Campground elevation is 7500 feet. Scenic views abound. Sites have sheltered, covered picnic tables. Taking into consideration that this is a boon docking campground, it still deserves a full 10 star rating, due to the fine views, excellent hiking trails, and huge spacing between sites. - HercMaster

This is a very nice Campground in the Kit Carson National Forest. Located on New Mexico State Highway 38 about 3 miles west of Red River NM at an elevation of nearly 8,600 on the GPS. With paved interior roads, it has four sites with level concrete pads. The remaining 16 sites have paved asphalt parking areas for RV's with their tables and fire rings adjacent in the dirt. About 3/4's of the sites can accommodate big rigs and long fifth wheels. Each site has a campfire grill and a picnic table. Water is available at several locations. Most of the camp sites are 50 to 80 feet from the other sites and masked by trees. Sites are nestled amidst large Ponderosa pines and Aspens. With our Golden Age Pass we paid $7.50 per night. Definitely a campground to come back to. Full on weekends with space usually available during the weekdays: at least that's what the camp host said. - happyflyer

This is a great national forest campground with level concrete pads at each site. It has campfire grill and a picnic table on a paved patio at each site. Water is available at several locations. Each site is 70-80 feet from the other and masked by trees. The campground was spotless and the air was clean and fresh. Sites are nestled amidst large Ponderosa pines and Aspens. Why anyone would camp in a side by side RV park in Red River when this is available is beyond reason. - JWT

This is the smallest of the Carson National Forrest campgrounds in the Red River area. All sites are dusty & gravel, but it is the closest to the city of Red River. We have camped here 4 times before and will do it again. There are pit toilets which are cleaned daily by the camp host, no shower. City water is available from one faucet from which you can fill your fresh water tank. The rate paid includes the National Senior 50% discount. - OpaS

Located close to town and has a beautiful view and Red River flows right through the park, there is a nice pond stocked with trout for fishing. Wifi and cell service is poor. Satalite TV worked well.
This campground needs serious drainage work to the sites and roads! Granted it rains in the afternoons often, but we have stayed in many rainey areas with no problems. This is nothing but an absolute mud hole, our site was covered with two inches of water. After complaining to the owner he got a shovel and tried to hand dig a drainage rut. Refused to move us and no offer of a reduction in rate.
Will will not stay here again. Beautiful area but the grounds are awful! - Jackie thornton

This park is in dire need of interior road and infrastructure maintenance. We were moved from one site due to a water pipeline failure and one of our party suffered a blowout due to a sharp rock in one of the interior roads. The owner's violate their own rules and allow tent camping on RV sites. We would not stay here again. - Altoflyfisher

Still really like this park and the staff. The 8 comes from what the weather left. Had rain all week and the drainage around the site was almost nonexistent. Mud everywhere. I feel certain that when I come back next year for the Motorcycle Rally, the staff will have fixed that problem. - ray brooks

The site we were in was for coaches and was a back-in only with utilities on the driver side. The site sloped forward as not much of the park is level. The hydraulic jacks were extended to the maximum to achieve level. An hour with a Caterpillar would do a lot of good. There were plenty of shade trees on both sides, but that made satellite tv not usable. It is dry there in late July and the roads were dusty. Entry road is bumpy and pot-holed, so drive slow. Staff was OK but not overly friendly. The location is very close to town, but overall the place could be better maintained. - Countryboy99

We stayed for a week having made reservations over the phone. Our camper had a problem with the water and we mistakenly thought it was the campground system. When we questioned management, they became very unfriendly and combative. A second detail that they failed to mention on their website or during reservations was a $2 charge each time we showered. It is a nice location but I don't know if that makes up for the treatment shown customers. - Gary West

Owners/operators are very friendly and helpful. Park is within walking distance to town and right off of highway which can be noisy during the day, but quiets down at night. Not fancy, but the area is level, and bathrooms were clean. The best part is the fishing right out the door of your RV in the stream that runs along the park edge. Make sure your plans are firm, the $50 deposit is non-refundable. Wi-Fi is spotty at times. - Kevin & Liz

Great atmosphere being up in the mountains. Best RV Park in RR for sure. Pine trees and Cottonwoods line the park offering significant shade. Recently graveled spaces. They have relaxed some of the prior rules around the park including unlocking the restroom doors and eliminating the need for deposits for the card key for entrance gate. - drw-cpa

For the price, I expected a bit more. We opted for a river front campsite, but the sites were extremely small and crammed together. There was no privacy at all. Our campsite was backwards with our front door opening into the next campsite, with our utilities, table and fire ring on the back side. The extremely bright yard lights made it hard to sleep. The wifi did not work at all. Overall it seemed like the campground was not well-designed. The people in the office were very nice and helpful, however I don't think I'd stay here again. - Bernalillo_Girl

Our first stay, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The park is rustic in nature very well maintained. Some of the sites are short on outside sitting area. Staff are very nice and helpful. Laundry is available and is kept nice and clean. We tried wi-fi although we do not use it, and it was iffy at best. We stayed in the lower section so we could have a fire. It was very quiet, even during the daytime. Most of the utility connections are on the back end of sites, some are in the middle. There are some privately owned manufactured homes in the park but they are well maintained and owners blend in with the park setting. - BWS

Paid for Cable TV but couldn't get it to work! Quiet place next to a nice small stream. I would guess that there are some trout in it. The host (employee) was very nice but he is so overworked it's a shame.
I have no tow vehicle. - Homawy

If it weren’t for our GPS, we never would have found this campground. The signs out on the highway are very small and easily missed. The entrance is also the exit. It's very narrow and if you're coming in when someone else is coming out, one of you is going to have to back up. The pull-thru we had was big and level, but some of the back-ins would be difficult to get into. There are some sites along the river that probably flood out during the spring snow melt. The laundry has three washers ($2) and three dryers ($2), but one of the dryers was out of order, the rubber gasket around the door of another one was falling off, and the gasket on the other was completely gone. The owners seem more concerned with adding unnecessary things, such as a gazebo, than in taking care of the things that are already there. There was no over-the-air tv reception and no cable, however they did offer to set up a satellite connection if you asked. If we're ever in this area again, we won't stay here. - mrpeepers

This campground is in a pleasant site along the Red River. The sites are level but are poorly marked and many are hard to get into. The owners are working hard to create new amenities,but are neglecting basic daily maintenance. There was trash scattered over our sites. The restrooms and showers were not cleaned, not even once in our 10 day stay. This was gross. - tetonbjb

Nice clean, newer park in the northern ski country of NM. No TV signal, but wifi works great with coverage throughout the park. All gravel park with level sites through out. Mixture of backing and pull throughs. Small stream runs through the park, horseshoes, and also a pond you can fish. Dollar general and small hardware store across the street. Cell service is poor for att and verizon. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

Great new park, opened in 2014. Owner lives nearby and is on-site frequently. He's one of the most friendly and helpful park owner/managers you've ever met. Park infrastructure (electric, water, sewer) is excellent. 23 of the sites have 50 amp service. Campground wifi coverage is excellent; you can get a strong signal pretty much anywhere in the park. Wifi throughput varies depending on how many other people are using it, but it's usually much better than average. Level sites with enough space to maneuver a big rig easily. There is a small pond in one corner of the property, with a couple of large communal fire rings nearby. Although the park was probably 75% full when we stayed there, it was VERY quiet. Many of the RVs are occupied by folks who are working temporarily in the area, so we didn't see them much.
Sites 1-14 are the most desirable, as they are furthest from the highway and back up to scenic open space. We loved Site 8 - with the pond out our door-side windows and the mountains and open space out the back window, we hardly knew there were other RVs here.
At $28/night (regular rate) it's a good value, but the park will also accept Passport America for up to 6 nights. At $14/night it's a steal. They also have very reasonable weekly and monthly rates available. - PlanoPilot

Our RV club enjoyed a 6 night rally here in June. Staff are all very friendly and accommodating. Sites are mostly level but are in some cases a bit more close than we prefer. Camp store is well equipped with necessities and gift items and campground has a weekly list of activities in which you can participate. There is an on-site chuckwagon serving breakfast and lunch items for sale. Bath and shower facilities are nice and well maintained. - G and G from ABQ

We got to Eagle Nest after dark on Dec 30. We were headed to Angel Fire but decided not to take a chance on the road since they had received snow that day. We called ahead and the owner was waiting out front in the frigid temps to help direct us into the park. He helped us get situated in our campsite. We went inside where we met his wife. It was like meeting old friends. They were so nice and just wanted to help. They invited us to the New Year's Eve potluck social the next night. They also told us they would have pastries and coffee at 9 the next morning there in the store/common area. We went for coffee and met another nice couple that were from west of Denver. Super nice folks also.
Bruce suggested a scenic drive for the day. We decided to stay here instead of going to the Angel Fire campground.
We attended the social on New Year's Eve and met some nice people from the town. By the time we left, we felt like we were leaving family. If you need anything, all you have to do is ask. They will do their best to help.
We definitely plan to go back to see our friends.

Basic park. Right on highway so easy on/off access. Hookups were convenient. Very few trees so good line of sight for roof mounted satellite dish. Site was fairly level. - Bob & Jo
