Many people head to Red River to get closer to nature, and what better way to do that then by camping? Luckily camping doesn't have to mean "roughing it" anymore. Red River has two full service RV parks that offer riverside lots for RV's, trailers, or tents, and just outside of town you'll find six US Forest service campgrounds with direct access to the mountain's hidden gems. Yurts (fully furnished) have also become a popular way to spruce up your camping adventure. However, if "glamping" isn't what you're looking for there are 12,000 acres of national forest surrounding Red River calling your name.
