Located 32 miles east of Tierra Amarilla, Hopewell Lake cg sits at 9,800 ft. in the Carson Natl. Forest and is a great place to escape the summer heat. It’s located just off hwy 64 which isn’t a very busy road. We came in from Taos which is not as steep a climb as it is coming in from the town of Tierra Amarilla. Very nice campground with threaded water spigots outside of each restroom. There are also trash receptacles located throughout the cg loop. When you first enter the cg you'll notice there’s lots of sites in the trees, but as you continue around the loop it will open up and you’ll find meadow areas with campsites. Very nice and open, beautiful in July with wildflowers everywhere. Continue on and you’ll find more sites that are in the trees again. There are a number of sites that can accommodate 40+ motor homes plus a toad. The sites are pretty level, dirt & gravel, mostly back ins. A picnic table and fire ring with grate is provided. It’s so quiet and away from it all. Plenty of room for slide outs and awnings. No bear sightings in the area. We could hear birds but never saw to many. Only spotted a Flicker. Lots of fishing in the lake going on. You can get to the lake by trail, located in the campground or by car in the picnic area. No cell phone service here. We noticed that there was lots of dispersed camping going on up a little further from the campground turnoff (on hwy 64) and just past the campground loop entrance. It’s free, just don’t go trail blazing. This is truly some of the most spectacular country we've been through in a long time.If you need propane, the Chevron Station in Tierra Amarilla fills bottles and motor home tanks. We will stay here again when traveling through New Mexico. We camped here in a Motorhome.
