The Mimbres Store is the closest store to the campground. It is also the last place to get gas before going to Black Canyon. It is open from 8AM to 5PM.

No designated campsites, and this is not a large campground.

Due to the road condition of FR150, which is an improved dirt/rock road, RV''s may find it very difficult to reach the campground. A high clearance vehicle is recommended.

FR150 is a good mountain biking road. Generally, it is a light-traffic road.
