Santa Fe National Forest Announces Changes To Cuba Ranger District Camping Areas


SFNF News:

SANTA FE – The Santa Fe National Forest today announced administrative changes to three of the most popular camping areas on the Cuba Ranger District. 

The changes will be implemented immediately:

  • Clear Creek and Rio De Las Vacas campgrounds are now available for reservations through the Reserve America reservation system. Visit the links above or call 1.877.444.6777 for availability. There will still be alternate camp sites available on a first-come, first-served “walk-in” basis. 

  • Travel Management has been implemented in the Church Meadows dispersed camping area off of FR 70. The area within 150 feet of FR 70 and FR 70AA will remain open to motorized vehicle use; however, no vehicles will be allowed past the 150-foot mark. Future plans include a fence at the 150-foot mark to encourage campers to stay within the designated motorized camping corridor. This corridor is open only to vehicles going to and coming from a campsite.

  • Visitors wishing to take vehicles into an area closed to motorized use to camp must contact the Cuba Ranger District to obtain a Special Use Authorization.

 Additional information about the Cuba Ranger District is available on its webpage. For information on camping facilities and other recreational opportunities, contact Maia Snelson, recreation specialist for the Cuba and Coyote Ranger Districts, at 575.289.3264 or
