Carson National Forest Camps

The Carson National Forest is located in the north central mountains of New Mexico near the community of Chama.  This area holds high elk numbers with great odds on drawing a license.  Here you have the choice of a large tent camp or modern cabin accommodations.  The Carson’s terrain is less demanding physically and can be hunted by most people.  Temperatures can reach into the high 80’s during archery season and drop down to below zero during the last rifle hunt.  Elevations range from 7500 ft in the sage brush country to 11000 ft at timberline.  Vegetation includes sage brush, pinon, juniper, pine, spruce & aspen.
