Big Tesuque Creek is a walk in campground not conducive to trailer or RV camping.
There are 10 units, picnic tables and grills, and vaulted toilets in the parking lot.
There is no potable water and no Campground Host.
The entire area is very scenic, and NM 475 is also designated as the Santa Fe Scenic Byway. Because of the large stands of aspen, the area is very busy, especially in the fall aspen viewing season.
There are additional recreation opportunities along NM 475, both above and below Big Tesuque Campground, including hiking and biking trails, picnic areas, and in the winter, both nordic and alpine skiing.
Tesuque is pronounced “Tess-U-key”
