Report: Decent campground. Your only feet from Williams creek. Not many trees but the sites are very far apart so you get some privacy, however the road is within view so probably get some road noise. Of the 4 campgrounds in this area, this is the first you come to and in my opinion would be the least desirable, though the competition is pretty tough. I'd say the major plus to this place is the proximity to the creek. Other than that, I didn't think it was that great.
Conditions: Memorial day weekend, only 2 sites left friday at like 5pm when we arrived, pretty much every site had 2+ RVs in it, so it was crowded. Seemed to be a popular place with larger groups since there is lots of room at the sites.
Water Availability: Drove through campground, didn't actualy stay there, but I think pump water is available.

Report: PLEASE CALL FIRST,DURING THE BIG GAME 2002 SEASON THIS CAMPGROUND WAS OPEN UNTIL THE 2ND RIFLE SEASON WHEN THE FOREST SERVICE CLOSED IT, SUPPOSEDLY FOR MAINTAINANCE, WHICH WE SAW NONE OF, THIS WAS VERY UPSETTING FOR THE SIX OF US COMING FROM OHIO PLANNING TO CAMP AT THIS SITE. WITH ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT IN THE HUNTING SEASON WE SAW NO REASON TO CLOSE THIS SITE, ESPECIALLY AFTER OBSERVING THIS SITE FOR THE NINE DAYS WE WERE THERE WITH NOTHING BEING DONE! SO PLEASE CALL AHEAD AND HAVE ALTERNATE SITES PICKED OUT AND OTHER HUNTING AREAS. THE ONLY CAMPGROUND THE FOREST SERVICE LEFT OPEN WAS WILLIAMS, WHICH HAS VERY LIMITED ACCESS TO HUNTING AREAS DUE TO THE LAKE.
Conditions: WITH ALL CAMPGROUNDS CLOSED EXCEPT WILLIAMS, TRASH DISPOSAL IS ALL UP TO YOU SINCE THE DUMPSTERS AT WILLIAMS WERE OVERFLOWING.
Water Availability: BRING ALONG PLENTY OF WATER CONTAINERS SINCE THE WELL WATER PUMPS HAD THEIR PUMP HANDLES REMOVED. WATER CAN BE FILLED AT SOME GAS STATIONS IN PAGOSA SPRINGS.
