This is one of several BLM campgrounds in this area. If you need to shower you go down the road to another one. This is an absolutely beautiful area. We were there in September and I imagine it is quite crowded during summer months. They do not take reservations. It is within easy driving distance of Taos. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar Campground BLM in a Motorhome.

This campground is in close proximity to Taos. Though close to the access road, it was quiet and well-kept with level, easily accessible sites. The hosts suggested that we hike the trail that went off from the campground which turned out to be the highlight of our stay for our boys! We suggest not taking 567 north out of the gorge unless you have a truck with 4-wheel drive that can handle a serious climb in gravel (though if you do, the view is spectacular!). We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar Campground BLM in a Fifth Wheel.

Truly spectacular Bureau of Land Management (BLM) campground just a short drive south of Taos, New Mexico. Rio Grand River across the street. Spotty cell service and poor Mi-Fi. The nicest BLM campground I have ever seen. We stayed for a week, and I could have easily stayed a month. Long pull-through sites. Rate is based on Access pass. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar Campground BLM in a Motorhome.

A very nice park. The park host was friendly and helpful. Very quiet. The Rio Grande River is just across road. Great for star gazing after dark. Will be going back. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar Campground BLM in a Motorhome.

This campground only has flush toilets. To shower you must drive down to Rio Bravo CG. The BLM does not have a dump site in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar Campground BLM in a Fifth Wheel.
