There is plenty of dispersed camping along the road up to Taos ski area/wheeler TH, good car camping there and only 10-20min drive to TH. Road from Taos ski area to Trailhead is easy dirt 2WD road IIRC.

Excellent couple of free riverside campgrounds with toilets along the road to the trailhead and ski area.
