Small campground, 8 or 9 sites overall. Possibly 3 to fit rigs over 35' or so. these 3 sites were all pull thrus. Quiet park. Absolutely no cell service. Near road but little traffic. Didn't use showers but are pay, $1 for 4 minutes. About 1/2 mile away is the Pilar campground which has sites more suited to bigger rigs but no shade. We camped at Orilla Verde Rec Area, Arroyo Hondo Campground BLM in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Taos is about 18 miles away. Very nice visitor center when you come into town. Used seating there for internet access. Trail across highway which connects the several campgrounds along the highway. Nice. Easy although a short climb up hill to access.

The rate, actually $2.50, reflects a 50% Senior Federal Pass discount. This is one of the seven campgrounds within the Rio Grande Lower Gorge (Orilla Verde) BLM recreation area, about 18 miles south of Taos. It is a newly designed Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. Two of the campgrounds, Pilar and Rio Bravo, have water and electrical hook-ups. The others do not. All are gravel, off of a good paved road. A couple of the sites at Arroyo Hondo would accommodate a fairly large RV. There are no hook-ups or water at Arroyo Hondo and there are no dump stations anywhere in the complex. The nearest dump station is in Taos at a commercial campground. You can fill your tanks at one of the other campgrounds but other campers reported that the water was not very good, so you might want to fill your tanks before arriving. The sites at this campground are simple parking spaces, but they do have picnic tables, grills, and tent pads. There is a vault toilet and there is a trash dumpster. A few of the sites have amazing views of the canyon and the river. Satellite is not a problem since there are no trees. We did not have a usable Verizon phone or data signal even with our booster. It is a good place for visiting Taos or Ojo Caliente Hot Springs. We loved our site and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Orilla Verde Rec Area, Arroyo Hondo Campground BLM in a Motorhome.
