Orilla Verde Rec Area

Orilla Verde Rec Area
Intersection of SH 570 and SH 68
New Mexico 87571


The park is located along the Rio Grande within the steep walls of the Rio Grande Gorge, and because of the evidence of ancient cultures and the diversity of the area, it is popular among vacationers, nature enthusiasts, and anthropologist. The Taos Valley Overlook is about 900 feet above the park and offers stunning views of the gorge and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Great fishing, whitewater rafting, picnicking, and hiking are just a few of the recreational opportunities. There are five campgrounds, each with tables, fire grills, restrooms, shelters, and drinking water. Primitive camping is only allowed at designated sites.

Please note: While we strive to keep our listings updated, we recommend that you always call ahead to make sure the place you are visiting is still in business, at the same location, and has the same hours of operation.
