    Water Canyon Campground is a great place to basecamp for exploration of the Magdalena Mountains and the stupendous hiking trails in the high country, a true island surrounded by desert seas. The campground is popular with locals, which is great. The campground is less than a half hour from Socorro and closer to Magdalena, so it's not so hard to restock food or ice as needed.
