We did not enjoy our stay at this dusty, trashy BLM site. $15 a night gets you an electric/water site with no sewer. Nearest dump is 30 miles away. You pay extra to shower. We had partial shade. Two unhappy campers. Stayed 2 nights; had planned to stay 7 nights. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Rio Bravo Campground BLM in a Travel Trailer.

This is a BLM site near the river in the Rio Grande Gorge. In march we were only neighbors with the campground host most of the time. If it rains the park can get a little muddy. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Rio Bravo Campground BLM in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This is bighorn sheep country and the last two visits in March 2015 and 2016 we saw sheep near the Taos Junction bridge up river. Excellent hiking and knock-your-socks-off views. No cell or internet. Quiet.

We were at Rio Bravo campsite, the host was super friendly. We stayed for one week.on the next to the last day I went for a ride on my motorcycle and about 1/4 mile outside my camp a Bighorn sheep jumped across the road in front of me.(AWSOME)if you get a chance go to Rio Bravo. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Rio Bravo Campground BLM in a Tent Trailer.

BLM Campground in Pilar AR. Lights, water and 25 cent showers with hot water. Very nice but only 7 spot with hookups. We stayed here in July in our Airstream. We would have stayed longer but a church group from Texas moved in across the road from us. They were loud and kept asking to plug into our trailer to run their crock pots and fans and what ever. Tiny bugs came out at night and we had to plug up all the gaps in our windows (airstream owners know what I mean). Buy some tubes in Taos and float the rio grande. We had a grand time until..... we would stay here again! We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Rio Bravo Campground BLM in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is part of the Orilla Verde Recreation Area operated by the BLM. Two of the campgrounds have W&E: 4 sites in Rio Bravo and 6 in in the Pilar campground. Rio Bravo has shade so it is the most popular. There is no reservation system. All 5 of the campgrounds fill up on summer weekends. So try to arrive on Thursday before noon. There is no dump. We dumped at the Taos Valley RV Park on 120 Este Es Road. Cost $10.70. We loved this campground so much we extended our stay. It is 18 miles to Taos but the nice peaceful campground was such a relief after the crowds in Taos. Spring and fall are better times to visit. Fewer people and less heat. Don't worry about the campgrounds being near the road. No one but campers and fisherpeople use the road into the Rec area. There is no traffic at night. We would camp here again. We loved it.
