GENERAL COMMENTS:
The elevation is 9,000 ft.

This peaceful and tranquil campground is one of three in a 
"recreation area."  Furthest of the three campgrounds from 
State Rt. 244, it is located in a grove of mature Douglas fir.  
The campground is configured in a single loop with sites in 
the center tending to be closer together than those on the 
outside.  Privacy between sites is poor to fair.  Interpretive 
programs are offered each Saturday evening at the amphitheater.  
Four pleasant day trips are visiting the town of Cloudcroft, 
Sunspot Observatory, Bluff Springs and Trestle Recreation Area.  
Firewood is available for a fee.

Cloudcroft has several craft and variety shops to include a
miniature golf course.  The Sunspot Observatory is at the end of
the 16-mile Sunspot Highway or Scenic Byway.  You can take a free
self-guided tour of the various observatories and watch the
scientists at work - a great place for the whole family.  Bring a
picnic lunch.  The Trestle Recreation Area has the Cloud-Climbing
Rail Trail with several scenic overlooks and a replica of a train
depot.  Bluff Springs is a trail leading to a waterfall.  Pick up
literature at the Chamber of Commerce in Cloudcroft.

This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques.

CAMPGROUND NAME: Deerhead VISIT DATE: 05/12/1999 UPDATE DATE: 4/3/2013 STATE: New Mexico REGION: Southwestern RANGER DISTRICT: Sacramento NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Cloudcroft RESERVATIONS: No DIRECTIONS: In Cloudcroft, NM, take State Rt. 130 south 1.2 miles to campground sign. Turn right at sign into campground. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 8,800 ft. The campground, with two spurs that end in loops, is adjacent to State Rt. 130 nestled among Ponderosa pine and Douglas fir. The shorter spur, to the left of fee board, is tucked up against Rt. 130. Campsites along this spur experience more traffic noise and because sites are close together, less privacy. However, it is a good spur for multi-family camping. The spur to the right stretches down a draw, away from the highway. This spur is quieter and a little more sunny. The separation between campsite rather than vegetation accounts for fair privacy. The narrow interior road makes the parallel parking pull-through aprons inadvisable for recreation vehicles with slideouts. Elk are frequent visitors along with an occasional black bear. Gophers abound, so much so that one should be careful not to twist an ankle on one of the many mounds. Day trips are visiting the town of Cloudcroft, Sunspot Observatory, Bluff Springs and Trestle Recreation Area. Cloudcroft has several craft and variety shops to include a miniature golf course. The Sunspot Observatory is at the end of the 16-mile Sunspot Highway or Scenic Byway. You can take a free self-guided tour of the various observatories and watch the scientists at work - a great place for the whole family. Bring a picnic lunch. The Trestle Recreation Area has the Cloud-Climbing Rail Trail with several scenic overlooks and a replica of a train depot. Bluff Springs is a trail leading to a waterfall.

In the middle of Butterfly Loop is a fenced meadow. This protected area is the home of the Checkerspot Butterfly found only here and in a few other areas around Cloudcroft.

The only tent pads in the campground are located on this loop. Chipmunk Loop, on the left of fee board and up an incline has a limited turn around. Motorhomes should detach dingy before exploring this loop. Towering Ponderosa pines provide some shade but most sites will be sunny for part of the day. The lack of middlestory results in fair to good privacy. Firewood is available for a fee. This is a good campground for hikers who want to explore the forest via the Osha Trail. Day trips are visiting the town of Cloudcroft, Sunspot Observatory, Bluff Springs and Trestle Recreation Area. Cloudcroft has several craft and variety shops to include a miniature golf course.
