Rio Chama Overnight

Winding through the heart of Northern New Mexico, the Rio Chama is one of this states real treasures. Designated one of America’s “Wild and Scenic Rivers”, the Chama is a wonderful river adventure. You will have plenty of time for drifting and swimming during the day, as well as hiking some of the many side trails. The camping is exceptional on the Chama, with most sites nestled among large trees and featuring wonderful views of the sandstone cliffs which line the river. The Chama is a favorite among New Mexico fishermen; remember to bring your pole and a current fishing license. All meals are provided during the trip. Since the Rio Chama is a permitted river and flow is regulated by El Vado Dam, there are only specific dates on which it is runable.
