Map

Located at the confluence of the Rio Grand and Red Rivers, this recreation area also includes an 800 foot deep volcanic canyon (the Gorge) that features diverse ecosystems, and many trails from easy to difficult to explore. There is a wide variety of plants (even 500 year old trees), animals, and bird life, and land and water recreation, including the Wild Rivers Backcountry Byway, a 13 mile, paved road that allows visitors access to several scenic views and recreational spots. Some of the amenities include a picnic area, grills, drinking water, restrooms, and a visitor center. Camping is available at 5 developed campgrounds, each with tables, grills, drinking water, and bathrooms. Four other trails will take visitors to primitive river campsites.




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. Do you have a favorite natural or organic place that we don't have listed yet? Tell us about your favorite place, or let us know any comments or feedback you have by sending us an email. Thank you!
