Howdy,
My friend and I are planning to go to New Mexico this week and we're hoping to camp near some hot springs. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good place to go?

Not sure exactely how to get there or what the camping situation is but I know there are hot springs near the put in to the Lower Taos Box. I think you have to walk about a mile to get there (no car camping options) Hope that helps.

Jemez Hot Springs: Several developed hot springs in the town of Jemez Springs.

san antonio hot springs in jemez forest, I think it is 2 or 5 miles hike in [snowshoes]. you can camp right there, at least you could a few years ago. jemez springs are next to the road, I do not think you can camp at them. las vegas hs are a 5 minute drive from the road off of 25 if you take that way - really nice water, swimsuit required, no camping right there. check out the book, "hot springs and hot pools of the southwest"

Sure sounds like a great trip Steep Shots! Give me a call if you are looking for a third!! I think Turkey Creek will be your best bet, but i guess it all depends on where in NM you are heading! Have a good trip!

Looking forward to skiing with you later this month!

Thank you!

Sweet, thanks everybody! Ended up sleeping in the Subaru on Artist Road on the way up to Santa Fe Basin, pretty comfy & close to awesome huevos rancheros for the morning. Most places you wanted to camp at had too much snow to pitch a tent. RiverMalt, we'll for sure have to do some trips in that neck of the woods this summer!
