Tuesday, June 4 – Fawn Lakes – Carson National Forest, Red River, New Mexico. This is one of five National Forest campgrounds near Red River, New Mexico, on the Scenic Byway, the Enchanted Circle. Most of the campsites are along the river, and there are sites big enough for 30ft RV’s. The best sites are for tenters or those with vans right on the river, but all sites are close to the river. No hookups, but water is available, and the pit toilets were very clean. It is a beautiful campground located under the Ponderosa Pines with some fir and spruce trees. Everyone can hear the river running southwest, and there are some paths along the river for walking to the lake. Fawn Lake (3 acres- four little lakes) is here for fishing which is also opened up to day trippers. Beautiful lake stocked with fish. The night we were there two young women were fishing at the lake and a bear came down the other side looking for food. It is bear country so beware. They now take reservations here since last fall, and the rest are first come. The cost was $17 and half with a pass. Beautiful and peaceful stop for a night or more. The four season town of Red River is less than two miles east on Route 38 which is also on the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway. This is the most popular byway and the one that is heavily promoted in the state of New Mexico. My husband wanted to stay a week here, it was so enjoyable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
