Beautiful view of Abiquiu Lake from the campground. To launch a boat on the lake, you have to go outside the campground to the boat ramp. The playground is one big sandpile and they have had two tractors plowing and grooming it all morning! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a no reservations campground 17 miles north of Abuiqui (10 miles north of Ghost Ranch) on US 84. It is an "iron ranger" set up. We camped here off season , so restrooms and water pumps were turned off. (No sign was posted to this effect, however.) Campground was monitored by a US Forest Service employee, who came round to empty the iron ranger in the morning. Very pretty, unusual setting and nice walk up to the amphitheater itself, which really does echo. After about 7PM, traffic noise from US 84 died down and it was very quiet at night. Beware very unlevel sites, though. Nearby Abuiqui Dam is a much nicer, developed campground, but this is nice in its own way. We heard from locals that dispersed camping in the Carson National Forest (just south on US 84, turn right at the monastery sign) is very nice, too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
