Albuquerque was at 100 degrees but we had a campfire in the evening. Site was clean overall and each individual site is level concrete. No power but water available at a communal spigot. - Limeybob

This is a state campground reservable on ReserveAmerica.com. Dry camping in the mountains between Cuba and Jemez Springs on HWY 126, this campground has a great group site that is difficult to reserve, and several individual sites that can be reserved in advance. Weekends are usually booked if not reserved several weeks/months in advance.
Surrounded by tall trees and a small creek that runs on the East side of the campground, this is a quiet and peaceful retreat from the hot New Mexico sun during the summer months. It is at over 8,000 feet so can be very cold in the off-season.
Vault toilets are kept clean and sites are level, although vary in size. Definitely no room for Class A or large 5th wheels, but perfect and spread out for TTs and popups.
We've stayed 10+ times at this campground and enjoy. - skyhawk133

We were in Riana campground about 4 years ago and not much has changed. Only loop Pede has electric and water. The rest of the loops only have water spigots scattered within each loop. Every site has a fire ring and a picnic table with shade covers Only the odd numbers within loop Pede are reserveable the rest are not. All sites within Pede have 50/30/20 amp electrical service. The electrical pedestal and water spigots were on the driver side except for sites 9 and 10. These sites are pull-outs and the utilities are on the passenger side. Most of the sites can accommodate a large rig, especially sites 9 and 10. The electrical voltage was good - hovering around 122. The interior roads are on asphalt and the sites are on gravel. Some sites are more level than others. This loop has a total of 15 camp sites. Two sites are reserved for handicap and another two are reserved for the camp hosts. Pede loop has a bathroom with 2 showers. It also has one vault toilet. There is another bathroom with 2 showers near the 2 dump stations. All of the other loops have vault toilets. There are hiking trails throughout the park. However, the maps the rangers provide are useless. They are attempting to provide trail markers but all that is currently available are blank poles. There is no WiFi within this park. Verizon air card and cell phone reception was good. They have just upgraded the playground adjacent to loop Pede. Instead of using grass, they chose to just rake the dirt. When it gets windy the dirt travels to some of the sites. When it rains, the playground area become mud. We would definitely come back to this campground. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. Note that the water level in Abiquiu lake is extremely low. The park rangers are recommending that only small boats use the lake. - adsaxs

We agree with the earlier review on this being a great COE campground. As mentioned the women hosting is wonderful. We called the day before we arrived and she said if we got here early we would probably get an electric site. Which we did, site 2. We did not pickup any OTA TV, but our Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. When coming in, pull up to the booth as it is not always staffed. The host is probably to your left and directly below. It is a steep grade coming in and not something you want to park on. The CG in general is on a fairly steep side hill dropping down to the lake and sites can vary. In the Pedernal Loop (E & W), sites 2, 3, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15 are mostly level and good for MH's. In the no hookup Chama Loop sites 18, 19, 23 & 24 looked pretty good. If your over 32' I would avoid the Puerco Loop which is just past the dump station. The dump station looked like it could be fairly tight for larger RV's. We did not try it. Overall we had a very nice 2 day stay and would return. - Bob and Inga

This is one of the nicest, if not the nicest, COE campgrounds we have ever stayed in. The location is awesome and the scenery breathtaking. This is a magical, mystical place with tons of places to visit. First and foremost, the host is wonderful, accommodating, helpful and friendly. She truly is the best! The campground sits above Abiquiu Lake and all the sites have a great view of the lake. Sites are paved, large and well spaced with picnic table, fire pit, grill and gazebo. There are only 15 sites with electric and water and the remaining sites have no hook ups. Hiking trails are numerous and easy to follow. Because the lake was lower than usual, entrance to the swimming beach was rocky. We originally had 9 days booked but once we arrived and settled in, we extended our stay for another 5 days. If we could have stayed beyond the 14 day limit, we would have! We will return again and again. - Budmobile

This is a very poorly laid out park. Roads are narrow, gravel, and sites are arranged "helter skelter". Only about 10 sites have hookups, and they are located in unorthodox positions. Better have a water splitter and 50 to 30 amp plug as you will have to tinker to get hooked up and hope your neighbors are congenial as there is little privacy. Pull thru with 6 electric boxes and one water spigot. Odd sewer position. Big rigs stay away! You can get stuck in the Welcome Center parking lot as well as the campground's nooks and crannies. This campground is OK for tents and very small rigs. There are other campgrounds in the area that are a fraction of the cost of Ghost Ranch. The whole area is gorgeous scenery and worth a visit. - Leanie

Nice USFS campground at Echo Amphitheater. Flush toilets, picnic table, bbq grills, but no ground fires. No hook-ups. Can accommodate trailers, medium rigs with toads. Description of the 9 sites: #1 30' but not very level, #2 100'pull-thru, #3 25' not level, #4 our site 35' with toad, #5 60', #6 60' pull-thru, #7 35' pull-thru but tight, #8 40' pull-thru, #9 50'. Campground was free, while Echo Amphitheater was $2 per car. Suggest parking out front where there is plenty of room and navigate campground accessibility for your outfit. Enjoyed our overnight stay. - Graybird

This is a beautiful small campground with only 9 sites. We had no problem camping with our 30ft Class A Motorhome. A number of sights are pull thrus and are fairly level. A great National Forest campground in a beautiful location (only 3 miles from Ghost Ranch). One negative was that the bathrooms needed to be cleaned. Had flush toilets, no showers.
Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was dirt and featured a picnic table. - Blowin-the-Wind

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! - JimfromAR

Fenton Lake is a beautiful location, but the campground was designed when tent camping was the norm. Maybe 10-15% of the sites are suitable for a 20' RV and then you have to deal with tow vehicle parking. Some sites are level, but many require considerable blocking to level. There is a single drinking water spigot at the boat ramp. So bring your 5 gallon water jugs to transport water. No dump station anywhere close. Nearest groceries are available in La Cueva (10 miles) and fuel in Jemez Pueblo (30 miles). No cell service. FYI NM126 from Seven Springs to Cuba has a 15 mile section not yet paved that can be a white knuckle adventure to drive when wet or snow covered. I would not pull my 25' travel trailer through this even when it is dry. This is a popular destination so weekends and holidays are very busy. I do use this park as a base for area fishing during the work week and sleep in the shell of my truck. Quite pleasant! - New Mexico Stan

In late October this park was quiet, and its lake offered the best trout fishing I have seen in years. The hiking trails were easy, and beautiful fall colors were everywhere. It would be an ideal park for someone with a truck camper. If you are visiting with a travel trailer or motorhome it might not be a pleasant experience. Roads are quite bad with many potholes. If you are going up the "RV loop," be careful, as there are a couple spots where you could easily bottom out if too low off the ground. If the only pull through spot, at the end of the loop, is occupied you may have to back up to negotiate the curve to exit the camping loop. There are no showers or dump station. There is no internet, over the air television or telephone service. A map on the bulletin board shows the nearest cell phone service, 5 miles down the highway (which does work!). If you want a peaceful getaway without technology this is a great place to find it. One bonus surprise was that the 6 electric sites all had generous stacks of nice burning free firewood at the grills! - Traveling man

The campground is quite pretty, although there is more dirt and pine needles than grass. The sites are unlevel, and only five have electricity. There is very little privacy between them. The non-electric sites have more separation and privacy. There are no facilities other than pit toilets; the one in the electrical section was very smelly, but the one in the non-electric was nicer; those sites are only $10. Excellent hiking, and fishing for those who are interested. We would have preferred to stay in the San Antonio Creek Campground, but it was closed for maintenance. - Michael.Roadtrek

While this campground is tucked into a lovely Ponderosa pine forest, the mountain view and meadow views as advertised are lacking. The mountain view is the side of the mountain the site is set on and the meadow overlook includes a church, parking lot, trucks and farm equipment. The campground property has large storage containers, garage and more vehicles & equipment. Its located close to highway, so some traffic noise but not too distracting - surprisingly quiet. We had a few site choices when we arrived - we chose the front section near the highway it was a better location than the views of the storage container and garage. Water pressure was weak. Wifi was non-existent. Electric surged quite often at all hours of day & night. We were happy that we had a surge protector. A bit of a challenge maneuvering our truck when another trailer parked in next spot down hill from us. Full hook up and views for $33 was pricey especially since we did not receive what was advertised - campground website makes this place out to be more than what you get.
Will stay at national forest campgrounds when we are in the area again. - SlurLanceALot

Small privately owned (owner lives on property) RV campground that has full hookups and free wi-fi. Park is situated in the ponderosa pines of the Jemez mountains at an elevation of 7600 ft. Unable to acquire satellite due to pine trees and no over the air channels could be found but we didn't care with so much to do and explore in this area. - Gary Sanders

No hookups or dump station. Pit toilets only. There are 4 loops and the weekends are busy, especially in the summer. It's a popular location for hiking and fishing. The falls are a moderate hike over a mile from the campground. McCauley Warm Springs are over 2 miles away via hiking trails only. Several fishing accesses within driving distance, but not at the campground. Lots of space between sites and plenty of shade. Camp hosts really keep this campground CLEAN. There are faucets that provide drinking water, but they are not threaded. - Terry P

This is a big-rig-friendly campground. Plenty of spots for our 32' triple-slideout travel trailer. The area is fairly heavily forested so solar power requires a lot of moving the panels throughout the day.
My only complaints are lack of threaded water spigots and no dump station. You'll need to fill up your tank before arrival. But there is water available for filling jugs, etc. Trash dumpsters are severely spilling over for some reason but otherwise it's clean and well maintained.
The sites are well laid out and for the most part are nicely spread out from one another. Sunday through Wednesday there's been no sound other than birds, thunder, and the breeze.
Some sites have a weak but usable Verizon 3G signal, others have a good 4G signal. Fellow campers with AT&T have no signal. Two years ago we had no T-Mobile signal (can't speak for present day but it's likely the same).
There is one special spot that has sewer, electric, and water. It appears to be a secondary host spot, but is currently not used by a host and is available if you're the lucky contestant. - Brad & Angela

This a wonderful place for camping while you enjoy the activities in the Jemez Mountains, such as fishing, hiking, and enjoying the hot springs. It's an easy hike to the waterfalls from here. The campground is large, with several loops of campsites. There is plenty of room to maneuver your rig. They are planning to upgrade some of the sites in 2013. Reserved sites are available.
