No camping at the put in or take out.

Great camping just up the river from the put in. Heading up river from the put in take the first road on left at pilar yacht club for about a mile. Forest Service camp with showers on left right on the river.

Over the years I have made a bunch of runs on the lower box, pilar and Rio Chama.
Really fun runs. The food up in Taos and in the area is just great. Love the desert rios.

Same for Salt River Canyon. When either my self or a friend got lucky on a Salt permit and lucky on having water, running the Salt River canyon is the best way I know to start the summer boating season. The lower Salt has several Rio camp grounds where the cactus look like an army of guards, especially so on full moon nights.

Both these areas and their Rios are just great places to boat even tho the season is short and water flow comes and goes, these two areas and Rios are about as good as it gets for relaxing float trips. And, Taos has some very challenging runs when the water flow is there.
