Enjoy the Beautiful
Sacramento Mountains.

Nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Lincoln National Forest, and at the center of a working cattle ranch, from its location at 7,600 feet above sea level, 16 Springs Canyon RV Park remains one of the Southwest’s most beautiful natural environments.

Summer days are warm enough for shorts and short sleeves; however, guests should always come prepared with jackets and warmer clothing, as a sudden rain shower in the afternoon can chill the mountain air.

Located less than 30 minutes from Cloudcroft, NM, the park is readily accessible year round.

Originally homesteaded in 1887, we're off the beaten path, but well worth the drive.

Family owned for 130 years.

Off The Grid
Unplug and disconnect.



Disconnecting from the chaos of our modern world can be the ideal antidote to the stress of day-to-day life and help you forget about your smart phone. 

16 Springs offers the chance for a digital detox by unplugging and giving the brain a chance to slow down, reconnect with nature and enjoy each and every moment for what it is. The only traffic to be found here are cows and elk walking the fields.

WiFi and cellular service is a 5-minute drive from the park.
