The Elephant Rock Campground is situated among tall trees on a hillside in the Carson National Forest in Red River, New Mexico. The campground includes 12 sites for tents and trailers, as well as ten sites that can accommodate RVs under 18 feet. During your stay, you're just steps from the Red River and Eagle Rock Lake, so you'll never run out of fun outdoor activities to enjoy. If you bring your dog along, keep them on a leash if they're not in your tent or trailer, and always clean up after them. Dogs can join you on hiking trails around the campground, and as long as you carry a leash and use it when around other people, your dog can walk off-leash on the trails.
Each campsite at Elephant Rock has a tent pad, a campfire ring, and a picnic table. Potable water is available on-site, and there's a dump station within a mile of the campground. There are no laundry or shower services at the campsite, but you'll find these facilities within three miles. If you need to stock up on groceries, gas, and other supplies, you'll find them within three miles of the campground as well. Your campsite will cost $18 a night, and this fee includes one vehicle. If you bring a second car, an additional $5 fee is charged.
The Red River is well-stocked for anglers, and it's just across the road from the campground. Eagle Rock Lake is another great place to fish. There's also a half-mile loop around the lake with lovely spots to stop for a picnic. The Fawn Lakes Trail is just 0.3 miles from the campground, and it's an ideal hike for all skill levels.
Bears frequent the area around the campground, so be sure to dispose of waste properly and store your food in locked vehicles. Summer weekends are very busy at Elephant Rock, and reservations are always recommended, but there are some first-come-first-served sites available, too!
