Located on the sunny shores of Lake Michigan. Swim or relax on our beautiful sandy beach and stop by our beach house for lunch or maybe just a snack. We offer: developed campsites, semi-developed campsites, boardwalks, camping, cabins, observation decks, hot showers, picnic areas, clean bathrooms, outdoor grills, dump station, play ground, large lots, and a concession stand.
This is one of our fav places. Below the Caballo Dam along the river, this campground offers green grass, a low number of goats heads, and the ability to boondock along the river without giving things like showers.
Here are links to campgrounds we have spent time at and some of our thoughts.
Coyote Creek State Park, about an hour southeast of Taos, is nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains along a meandering stream. Enclosed by a forest of spruce and pine, the small valley displays abundant wildflowers and beautiful fall foliage. The park is ideal for fly fishing, camping, hiking and birding.
We see some great fires! This is our neighbor at Lake Dallas on Lewisville Lake (a bit confusing but I guess the lake changed its name but the town did not). We love a good fire but often find ourselves in places where fire is prohibited. We didn't remember how much of a workout fire - and fire cooking - can be.
We have used this as our home base for landing in TorC for 3 year now. Great park, lots of hiking, water for a desert, and with the New Mexico camping pass is only $4 a night for an electric and water site.
He's our Mascot and butt warmer in the middile of the night. He's also had so many photos taken of him over the year let's just say he has an attitude. Check out some of the best of his road experience.
Well this week sees us back in one of our very favorite states - New Mexico - and absolutely one of our favorite mountain ranges, the Sangre de Cristo mountains near Taos. Although we can barely breath up here it still feels like a load is lifted when you step out and gasp for that first deep breath of mountain air. Gorgeous.
This Saturday, our last day at Coyote Creek and Halloween weekend, we were comfortable that we had a neighbor staying over. It was after 1:00 p.m. and they were still there. We had discussed how it would be a bit fun and spooky if we were left alone on our last night.
Coming back to one of the coolest state parks in New Mexico, Elephant Butte State Park, I found myself looking forward to getting reacquainted with the quail and that terrific view of the beautiful night sky.
Trinidad Lake is a wonderful place to escape the crowds and establish a basecamp from which to explore the great outdoors. Miles of trails winding through ancient and interesting local history, and spectacular scenery provide visitors and nature enthusiasts with great outdoor exploration opportunities.
