Camp at Cuchillo del Medio

Details

Added by Jenna Mulligan

Free camping in the Carson National Forest, secluded from the road and yet easily accessed from Taos or Arroyo Seco.

Drive towards the Taos ski area, passing through Arroyo Seco on NM-150 North. Four miles up this road, the Cuchillo del Medio campsites will be on the southeast side of the road.

There are two sections of campsites, with side-by-side entrances. (Note: the southern section is currently closed due to tree-fall concerns).

At the north section, there is one pit toilet and room for four different groups. All of the sites have access to the creek - the "Rio Hondo" - and have plenty of forested space to ensure privacy. There are also fire pits and picnic tables.
