This is a small, developed camping area in a grassy meadow, right on the banks of the Rio Grande River. It is not recommended for large RVs or long/wide trailers because the access road going down into the site is narrow and steep.  The recently remodeled (2010) area has 7 camp sites with picnic tables and fireplace rings.
