The Ponderosa Campground is located just 6 miles from the Bandelier National Monument and the town of Los Alamos. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Canyon, where you will find acres of rugged mesa country with petroglyphs, carving in the soft stone walls and the standing masonry walls that play tribute to the areas rich cultural past and present. Look out for wildlife such as black bears, mule deer, mountain lions and squirrels as well as birds like canyon towhees and Stellar's jays. One hiking trail extends from the campsite, however, there are other trails just outside the site and excellent rock climbing opportunities at the Bandelier Monument. Campers also venture into town to pick up supplies at the various stores, go ice skating or even visit one of the museums. 

Although there are no RV hookups, there are campfire rings, drinking water, picnic areas/shelters, parking and food storage. A great place to enjoy nature, the Ponderosa Campground is certainly a local treasure.
