Site Name    LC-1    LC-2
Vehicles    2    2
Persons    10    8
Horses    4 (4-horse trailer,

How to Get There
The La Clocha campsites are located off of the River Road East 2.6 miles from the main paved road to Rio Grande Village. The La Clocha access road is 0.7 miles in length.

Usual Road Conditions
The River Road is maintained for High Clearance Vehicles only. After rains, the River Road and La Clocha road are extremely muddy and may quickly become impassable to ALL vehicles. 4-wheel drive may be required.
Current road conditions...

Ground Cover/Shade
LC-1 is located above the river on a gravel terrace. There is NO shade and very sparse vegetation. LC-2 is near the river's edge, has partial shade under vegetation, and a sandy base..

LC-1 has magnificent views of the Rio Grande, Chisos, and Sierra San Vicente. LC-2 has obscured views due to dense river vegetation.

River Access
LC-1 has foot access to the river. Boat launching is possible from LC-2.

Cautionary Notes
To minimize the possibility of theft, secure belongings when away from the campsite and while sleeping. Do not leave site unattended for long periods of time.

Check current road conditions with a ranger. 4-wheel drive is required after any rain.

A backcountry use permit is required (available at visitor centers). Campers are responsible for regulations listed on the permit. Camping is in designated sites for minimal impact on the surrounding vegetation.
