Water Canyon Campground is a surprisingly scenic getaway tucked in a small box canyon just 22 miles southwest of Socorro. It is an ideal family campground, with bicycle trails and one hiking trail that leads to the top of the canyon.

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.
