Echo Ampitheatre is a fee-based National Monument with some of the stunning scenery in the Georgia O'Keefe /Abiquiu vicinity. It is ideal for photography and getting up close to some of the landscape that is less accessible. Park facilities are outrageously maintained; best to carry your own toilet paper, and finding comfort stops in this area are scarce.

It does not matter if you pass through or just stay in the neighbourhood. You have to stay here for a few hours. It is gorgeous and nice to walk around and go to the echo spot. It is really easy to walk, but very impressive and nicely maintained.

This place was amazing. It's so cool to experience the wonders that we have right in our backyard. Easy hike to the echo spot. Easy hike to get to the top of the rocks also. Bathrooms available on site.

A stop at Echo Amphitheater allows you to get up close and personal with the colorful cliffs of the Abiquiu area. The natural acoustics are super fun for everyone. My son, who can sing opera, but usually won't, actually let loose with a lovely little aria which boomed out across the entire area. There are easy walking trails and benches.... More

A must stop or visit if you are on the way to Chama, or Pagosa Springs or if you are in Lake Abiquiu area. Echo Amphitheater is a natural stone amphitheater formation, located in Carson National Forest, just off Highway 84 (on the westside of HWY84). About 15 miles north of the Village of Abiquiu, and 3 miles west from... More

Once to twice a year my husband and I drive from South TX to Ouray, CO. We drive by Echo Amphitheater almost every time...going and coming. Seldom will we just drive by; it's too great of a spot. The parking lot is nice and big (and usually more empty than full), and with their trash cans it's a great place... More

We were on our way to Chama and stopped off with the kids. You pay a couple of dollars to enter. This was a really cool spot to see. The kids loved singing and hearing the echoes. There is a spot to picnic, and the restrooms are very clean. If you're driving through the area, it's definitely worth a visit.

This beautiful and spiritual place is at the northern end of Georgia O'Keefe Country and just a few miles north of Ghost Ranch. The beautiful colors of this place can be seen from many miles away including the Abiquiu Reservoir. When I was there, there was only one other couple and not one of us clapped or tried to create...

Friends and I took the trip to see the amphitheater & to play our indian flutes,drum & rattle. Acoustics were great &gathered a good crowd a few times... very beautiful area &even in July not hot! Without a pass there is a small fee to enter but worth the stop.
