LOVED LOVED LOVED it! Chisos and Rio Grande Village were both full when we arrived so Cottonwood was only open campground. For us, it was the hidden jewel - only 1 other camper. Restrooms were "park normal" - meaning no a/c, no ventilation, no plumbing. Usable for a guy less desirable for a gal. But, super peaceful, serene and so much to do and see around!
