Heron Lake,NM
Great campground with everything from full hookup to no hookups. Clean showers and bathrooms, as well as pit toilets in sites without water, great gravel roads and large sites. The sites across the dam are perfect for boon docking, with excellent wide open views, fairly level pads, picking tables and fire rings. Lake is low, but lots of deer and not many flies nor mosquitoes!

Great Park, However ....
We use the Blanco and Willow Creek campgrounds many times each year. Blanco campground is a loop with camp sites on both the inside and outside of the loop. Before Covid there was a sign at the entrance to the loop that said, inside loop sites left and outside loop sites right. Now the old sign is gone and has been replaced by a DO NOT ENTER sign to the left. But the sites are laid out for clockwise traffic! Some sites are very tight for a large rig to make the turn from counterclockwise traffic to be properly oriented on the site. The camp host does not know why the signs were changed. However, they will escort you in a clockwise direction to your inside loop site. Still, we will be back many times in the future.

What's Not To Like
Spent a week before the Memorial Day holiday truck bed camping. The park was practically vacant. My wife and I enjoyed beautiful lakeside sunsets, long hikes, campground dinners and amazing proximity to a hot shower and restroom. We paid $10 a night. For $2 more you can get water. For another couple bucks, electricity. Very affordable. Tierra Amarilla is close by. Chama 20 minutes further. I plan to come back. Yes, my wife and I enjoyed roughing it at Lake Heron.
