Thanks, both of those seem really nice. Do you boon dock on the east shore sites at Black brook cove? We have never boon docked but that seems like a great place to do it. Want to set the TT up for it but we are in the process of an upgrade TT, so that will have to wait.

This will work for years on part time use. Not sure how the codes are in your area.
I like the set up, we do have a "cowboy septic" system installed on the property, unfortunately I don't know what the previous owners used for the holding tank...............I need to dig it up to see what's lurking under the surface.

BTW, that's quite the construction site you have there!

If you have something I would use it until you have a reason you can't. The tank I put in leeches, I put like 500 half inch holes in a plastic drum and surrounded it with rocks. I have a friend with the same setup and he is going on 12 years with no problem. As far as construction go's I AM DONE! This year. I am trying to put the pieces back together now. I still need to run my water and power lines. Maybe next year.

They changed their website I couldn't find the campground map. I am not sure if they have a site on east shore that will fit your TT. I would call for info. I just happened to keep the map I saved from the old website.Click image for larger version

Good point. With proper drainage these will work for 20 years or longer. If it aint broke don't fix it or mess with it.

Nice land - Juniper and Pinion and looks very flat. As a native NM (one of the few) I'd there are a quite a few areas this could be. Mind giving the general area?

Our friends have a piece up near Heron lake where they leave their trailer all summer. They haul water in a 100 gallon tank in the back of the truck. Put in an outhouse for #2 and let the #1 and grey drain into a hole down the hill a bit. About every 10 years they dig a new outhouse hole. They have electric. Works well for them.

Chakara, we are located approx. 10 west of Quemado on US 60 at an elevation of 7800'. I love the area; open, quiet, peacful. Nothing beats star-gazing from anywhere in New Mexico.

Great area. Quemado remains my coldest camp ever were all weekend we hit the 15F mark. Were camped in the parking lot above the ramp. Nice hike behind the lake up to the top...views to die for. Fishing was slow when we were there, but did net some goldfish when they came by
