|A less-improved campground in a ponderosa pine forest about a mile from the Pecos river. This campground appears to get the overflow from other campgrounds such as Mora and Terrero as well as people who just want a less crowded camping experience.|

Getting to the campground:
From the town of Pecos, NM, take New Mexico 63 north. Near the Terrero General Store (which offers showers for $5.00), the road makes a sharp right turn, but there is really no other place to go. A little past the store, but before you get to the old mine tailings on the right, take Forest Road 646 to the right (approximately eastward). After a few tenths of a mile, a small road takes off to the left. Do not take it, but remain on the main road. After about 0.8 mi, you will arrive at the campground.
Note that the road from Pecos is narrow and it has many sharp turns. Expect to take a good part of an hour to get from Pecos to the campground.
This campground also has the most unusual entrance sign I have ever seen. This ``temporary'' campground has obviously been around for several years.
About the campground:
The sites have picnic tables, and they are in better shape than those in the Mora campground.
One of the best features of this campground is the forest and the less-crowded nature of the campground.
