Take your fur-baby to discover the mountains of New Mexico at Jemez Falls Campground. This facility is central to many of the area's sights and attractions, and it offers on-site perks as well! Stay deep in a Ponderosa pine forest and watch the East Fork Jemez Wild and Scenic River wind past the campground.
The daily rate for this campground is $10. The area is made up of 51 different lots, accommodating trailers up to 20 feet in length. Be prepared to go without all of your at-home comforts, as there are no showers or hookups on the grounds. What you will find are picnic tables, campfire rings, drinking water -- and bears! Be bear aware throughout your stay and store food and toiletries hidden away in your vehicles. While there is no firewood for sale in the park, campers are permitted to collect dead wood from the forest floor. The pine trunks don't offer much in the way of privacy, but the sites are situated with some space in between them.
If you're visiting Jemez Falls Campground, you can visit -- you guessed it -- Jemez Falls. These waterfalls are located just a short walk through the woods away (which we know your woofer won't mind) and allow you to view the largest waterfall in all of the Jemez Mountains! Nearby, you'll also find hot springs, an archeological site, and many different creeks to cast your line in. Be sure to bring your camera along as the sights from this high up are truly breathtaking.
Jemez Falls Campground is pup-friendly, but they do ask that you keep your furry friend on-leash throughout your stay. As this is bear country, do not leave your doggo unattended. Also, be a good pet parent and always clean up any waste your canine leaves behind (and remember to bring poop bags to do so!).
If you and your pooch want to get up-close and personal with an incredible waterfall, make sure to check out Jemez Falls Campground.
