Description

Primitive campsite with rock fire pit. Dirt pull through site with slight slope. Lots of trees around but nice big clearing for solar. Lots of room for a larger rig or multiple rigs in this spot. There are several other spots to camp in this area as well. Pretty quiet with occasional road noise (not much though).

The turn off is between mile marker 49 and 50. At the brown wooden sign you can go right or left. The left track is very rocky with lots of ruts - best for a high clearance 4WD. We only saw a few small turnouts that seemed mostly like a place to turn your vehicle around.
The right track has many places to camp, and is more accessible with a 2WD vehicle. There are still some rocks and ruts further in, but as long as you take it slow it should be fine. RVs up to 30 feet can most likely fit - definitely the spots at the very entrance.

Had 2 bars with T Mobile and 1 bar with Cricket. We didn’t see any animals but heard a lot of coyotes very close by.

Always a bummer to find trash! Please remember to do your part in leaving no trace so that we can continue to enjoy these beautiful places in nature for FREE.

Made it to a little spot off the right fork in my 2WD van. Big ridges in the road past a certain point so couldn't go too far. Didn't hear any coyotoes :)

Report Check-In

As described. Took one of the first sites on the right fork in the road and made it just fine in my 2WD SUV. Very quiet and peaceful with the tall trees and full moon. 1-2 bars of Verizon LTE generally, although it goes in and out, so don't expect reliable signal.

Report Check-In

Report Check-In

Nice area with multiple camping areas in Santa Fe National Forest. Just off Rt4. Our camping area had a rock fire ring, and was surrounded by tall pines.

Report Check-In

Beautiful spot with lots of trees. We were climbing at Las Conchas and this spot was just up the road past all the busy established sights. There are a lot of campsites here with fire rings. Not a lot of people here and minimal road noise. Had great service with Verizon, we were streaming music the entire trip. The roads were a little washed out, we had no problems with light rain. However, lots of rain would probably mean 4wd as roads are all dirt. Would return and recommend to anybody trying to camp/climb in Jemez

Report Check-In

Very nice; wind rustling thru the trees. Little road noise. Generally level, good cell signal.

Report Check-In

Despite the fire pits, it is illegal to have a fire here. Insanely busy lately with all the people suddenly interested in the outdoors due to CV19. Lots of human waste laying around from the weekend warriors. Come late for a spot and you’re SOL. Don’t even waste your time on a weekend.
