|An older, quiet campground, this campground is good for wildlife watching, especially birds. Iron Creek is also close to the trailhead for the Railroad Canyon hike.|

Getting to the campground:
Head west on NM 152 from I-25 (near Caballo). Go through Hillsboro, Kingston, and Emory Pass scenic vista (which is worth a stop). The campground is about 8 miles past the scenic vista.
About the campground:
Here is a representative campsite. Note that you park and walk in to the picnic table. This is not a bad thing, and for tent campers it is convenient.
You can also somewhat see the crumbling of the picnic table in the large version of this photo.
