Orilla Verde Recreation Area

Fodor's Review

You can hike, fish, and picnic among trees and sagebrush at this beautiful area along the banks of the Rio Grande, 10 mi south of Ranchos de Taos, off NM 68 at NM 570. The area has four developed campgrounds with running water, flush toilets, and showers. Three primitive campgrounds have vault toilets only. To pay the camping fee, leave cash in an envelope provided, drop it in a tube, and the rangers will collect it (or a volunteer sometimes is on hand to collect payments).
