Boone, that scenery is absolutely gorgeous! Rio Costilla Park is now on my list of places to take the Airstream.

It is really nice. We have a 22ft and it was a little tricky getting into this spot but there are lots of sites with easier access.

Rio Costilla Park is pretty, but $20 a day seems like robbery. We scouted the region last month for boondock sites further up in Valle Vidal and found nothing possible in the upper reaches of that watershed... Valle Vidal is New Mexico's answer to Lamar Valley. Cabresto Canyon to the south of Rio Costilla has possible boondocking sites, but would need scouting to verify road condition/site access due to the heavy rains this year.

You are right, $20 is normally steep for dry camping but $80 for 4 full days at a beautiful riverside camp with very little traffic in the area is worth it to me. The fee might be one of the reasons there not many people camp there.

I hear ya... - that's a sound argument within context, and the perception of value has more to do with what one's camping background is. I previously was (and am) an avid wilderness backpacker w/ mountaineering experience, so I'm wired to avoid anything called a "campground", and we setup our Airstream for boondocking, hence my prejudice. That said, I'm embracing the idea of some campgrounds for future cross country trips we're planning, so!

Rio Costilla is gorgeous, and your photo captivating!

Hey TC, I'm not on the forum everyday so, sorry I didn't respond quicker it was shot with my iPhone 5s. Not bad. I mostly shoot with a Canon 6D but, was too lazy to set up the tripod for a pano. Thanks for the compliment.


Mark,
