Santa Fe National Forest Campgrounds, Picnic Areas Open For Summer Season

SFNF News:
 
SANTA FE  Warmer weather and the upcoming Memorial Day weekend are the unofficial launch of the summer recreation season on the 1.6-million-acre Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF). 
 
The SFNF offers a multitude of recreational opportunities to its visitors. Developed sites for camping and picnicking are among the most popular, offering scenic vistas, access to fishing and hiking, and perhaps even a little peace and quiet.
 
Forest visitors are asked to follow campfire safety guidelines and adhere to the Leave No Trace principles of outdoor ethics. The 2016 Motor Vehicle Use Maps, available at all SFNF offices and online, designate roads and trails that are open to motor vehicle traffic. 
 
Unless otherwise noted below, the Santa Fe National Forest’s campgrounds and picnic areas are open for the 2016 season. Additional information on each site is available on the SFNF website’s Recreation page. Reservation sites may be booked at Recreation.gov
