Hopewell Lake Campground, San Juan and Jemez Mountains, New Mexico

Custom Search
 


Hopewell Lake is a beautiful, well-located Campground. Be advised several sites offer little-to-no shade/shelter from the elements. Something else to be very aware of: rules are not enforced. Over Labor Day weekend, in a single campsite we counted six (plus) vehicles and well over the maximum number of people. Also tolerated are lots of noise (one RV'er ran an emergency-purpose -- read: EXTRA LOUD -- generator during ''quiet hours'' on a daily basis),
 
    campsite ''hopping,'' and pets galore. Unfortunately there is no separation between RV and tent sites, so if you're tent campers like us, be prepared to deal with rule-breakers who do so with no consequences. Otherwise, a nice place.
 Recommendations: 1) Pick a site nearer the front (1-15), and 2) Go when fewer campers are there. Follow these guidelines, and you're sure to enjoy yourself. Says G White (Tue, 4 Sep 2012)

Once you arrive at this primitive campground you'll realize it was well worth the effort getting here. It is extremely beautiful here at this primitive campground, and at this primitive campground you can get a finer wilderness experience than you would get at a more
 
    civilized campground. Of course services are few in a primitive campground such as this. Hopewell Lake Campground is a popular spot with people from Vallecitos.
Lots of people stay here when they come to go to Carson National
  Forest. There's more to do right next door to Hopewell Lake Campground other than just hanging out such as relaxing, and whitewater paddling, so running out of enjoyable stuff to do won’t happen.
This camp ground is located in the picturesque San Juan and Jemez Mountains. There are so many enjoyable things near Hopewell Lake Campground, and a lot of people love to come here to escape.
