Black Jack Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This campground is at 6,300' elevation. 12 camping units. Please pack your trash out. The nearby Coronado Trail Scenic Byway makes for an interesting day trip. All Forest Service campgrounds have a 14 day stay limit. There are grills on the campground, but no drinking water is available. This is a nice large area for groups, with a pretty view at south end. From rocky bluffs above Blackjack Cave to the campground under the Ponderosa pine and oak trees, everyone can find something of interest. This campground is located about 10 miles east of the New Mexico State Line. Shortly after crossing into New Mexico, you pass through the area known as Mule Creek and enter into some beautiful rolling grasslands. Keep an eye open for antelope in this area.
