State: New Mexico
County: Santa Fe
About: Adjacent to and just above the campground is the Rio Medio Trailhead, one of the major trailheads into the Pecos Wilderness.
The campground is rather primitive and little used, and is much less developed than most. It is primarily used for picnicking by locals from nearby communities, and also serves those who use it for an overnight stay before embarking on a horsepack or backpack into the Pecos.
There is ample space for trailer/RV camping, but no dump station is available.
Directions: Twenty miles east of Española NM. To get to Borrego Mesa, take State Road 503 out of Pojoaque through Nambe and Cundiyo. Just past the turn off to the west to Santa Cruz Lake you will see the junction with Forest Road 306. Turn right on FR 306. Just after nine miles turn right on Forest Road 435 into the Borrego Mesa campground.
