Agua Piedra Campground
Carson National Forest
Due to COVID-19, we are hoping this campground will open in mid June, but do not know the exact date. When it does open, we will strive diligently to keep our facilities disinfected, but cannot guarantee our facilities will be 100% free of coronavirus. Please bring your own hand sanitizer, and if you are feeling ill, help protect other campers and our employees by staying home.
No fires are currently allowed in this campground. For more information, visit the Forest Service website.
