  1. This campground was a great find. We were at another campground but where we couldn’t reserve an additional night and, in looking for a FCFS campground, we came across Vista Linda. We arrived pretty late and were happy to find several spaces to choose from. We stayed in a space that was close to a restroom and a water spigot and it also had a covered shaded structure. It was definitely really hot both days that we were there and there aren’t a lot of trees to provide, so it was good that we were able to get one of the shaded structure campsites (#9). The river is a very short walk behind the campsites and the red rock mountains to the Northwest were imposing and beautiful. I kept thinking about how we were on sacred native land and about the importance to honor and respect not only the ancestors, but the current native people of this land who live nearby.
