This area is Open
 

The campground offers a respite from the heat in a setting of aspen and mature ponderosa pine trees, approximately 6 miles south of Fort Wingate.  This is the most recently renovated campground on the Mt. Taylor Ranger District.  This area has a rich history of railroad logging, and the original town of McGaffey was built in the vicinity of McGaffey Lake a few miles down the road.  Remember to pay attention to road conditions and your vehicle's abilities before driving off of the main road.
