May 20, 2015 Memorial Day 2015 Is Upon Us. All campgrounds within the Santa Fe National Forest, Jemez Ranger District, including Fenton Lake State Park , are fully open. Vista Linda Campground (13 sites, no hook-ups), Jemez Falls Campground (52 sites, no hook-ups), Redondo Campground (60 sites, no hook-ups), San Antonio Campground (21 sites reservation only including six with electric and water), Paliza Campground (30 sites, no hook-ups) and Fenton Lake State Park (30 sites including six with electric and water) are sure to provide plenty of improved camping opportunities for this busy three day weekend. In addition, all forest roads are open and provide opportunities for dispersed camping.
Memorial Day 2015 has the potential of being one of the best in recent memory. Copious amounts of spring snow and rain have made for low fire danger, lots of green, dust free roads and higher stream flow with better fishing. Streams and the lake have been heavily stocked and are awaiting your baited lines.
As always, Memorial Day Weekend will be the busiest three days of the year. Please respect your fellow campers and your forest. Be safe with your activities and your fires. Trash…pack it in, pack it out.
Amanda’s Jemez Mountain Country Store is open 363 1/2 days a year….closing on Christmas Day and a half day on Thanksgiving. Our summer hours are 8:30 am to 8:00 pm every day. Come on up and say hi. We’d love to see you.
