Evergreen Valley, NM – $Free ♥♥♥♥
Dirt road – Fire rings – No traffic – River – Wild berries!
At the trail head to Elk Canyon in Evergreen Valley. This is one of the most beautiful drives we have seen so far. It’s a long winding forrest road but the end is so worth it. Signs say no camping at the trail head but you can camp off the trail. We stayed on the road anyways and nobody came by or cared.
Comales National Forest Campground, NM – $11 ♥♥
Paved road – Fire rings – Table – River – Toilets – High traffic
Campground was okay. We would stay here again in a pinch but it was windy and access to the river was a bit difficult. There was a lot of traffic on the road. The price is steep for what you are offered.
Capulin National Forest Campground, NM – $6 ♥♥♥
Paved road – Fire rings – River – Table – Toilets – High traffic
This camp was actually pretty nice. If it wasn’t for the close highway and high volume of people, we might have stayed an extra night. It’s tucked back off of a beautiful section of road. We originally planned to stay at Las Peticas but it was full.
Lake Como Road, CO – $Free ♥♥♥
Dirt road – Fire rings – BLM land – Low traffic
Just parked here after the Great Sand Dunes for a quick night of sleep. It was flat and dusty but we were not expecting the extraordinary sunset, one of the best we have seen so far. If we end up at the sand dunes again we wouldn’t hesitate to pull of on this road.
San Isabel National Forest (Co Rd 360), CO $Free ♥♥♥♥♥
Dirt road – Fire rings – River – Dispersed
We took the turn off towards Ophir Creek and seeing the main campground was closed opted for this dispersed camp spot. It was truly peaceful. A few cars passed thoughout the day but it didn’t bother us too much. There are a few pull-offs to camp on this road. Totally worth the drive.
Buffalo Creek, CO $Free ♥♥♥♥♥ 
Dirt road – Fire rings – Low traffic
This place was great not only to camp but also had easy access to hiking and biking trails. We met up with a few mountain bikers here and would definitely go back to explore a bit more. Seems to be a lot of people who come out with bikes!
