Camp Elliott Barker


Camp Elliott Barker: Your Destination for Troop, Family, and local Day Camp

Angel Fire, New Mexico

On the eastern slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, in Angel Fire, Barker offers 536-acre for camping and hiking, and is near Carson National Forest and Eagle Nest Lake for off-site explorations! 

Camp Elliott Barker is home to a pond, high and low ropes course, a small historic dining hall, gaga ball pit, plenty of hiking trails, New Mexico’s oldest working horse barn, and one primitive outpost. Housing Units include platform tents and cabins with cots or bunk beds with mattresses. Each unit has campfire circles and wash areas with sinks and latrines.

Camp Elliott Barker celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013.  A brand new shower and bathroom facility was installed in the Aspen Glen cabin unit in 2017. Meals are served family-style in Hoffman Dining Hall.

Campers will visit the Wishing Chair, canoe or swim at Blackbird pond, do arts & crafts, visit our on-site observatory, and hike through the Underworld.
