Perfect little campground to check out Bandelier Monument. Sites were well spaced and had a decent amount of privacy. We visited during the end of January and the camp was pretty empty.
Nice fire pits, $1.00 per log.
Don't miss this national monument! Not only are the archeological treasures there well worth the effort, the campground is pleasant, well groomed, and easy to get to. We camped in our 17-foot Casita RV. While there is no water or electricity at the sites, we conserved by using the centrally located flush toilet and double-sink wash station for dishes. Sites are well spaced and private. Staff at the visitors center were friendly and masked.
I loved Bandelier and Juniper campground. Site rental and firewood purchase are self-service on your way to the campground. We went on a Tuesday and there were very few people there. Made the place feel even more special. Hiking to the historic Pueblo’s from the campground wasn’t too difficult and it was a totally beautiful and unique hike! No showers, but there are bathrooms and dishwashing stations.
Bring comfortable hiking shoes, as there is a trail between the campground and the Indian caves. It’s maybe 4 miles round trip, but scales the mountain with several switchbacks. It was a beautiful morning hike. Oh yeah, the campgrounds were great with very clean facilities. Can’t wait to go back.
Awesome campground located inside the gates of Bandelier. $12.00 for a paved back in or pull trough site. So much to do in the area. Hiking, biking, camping, it’s all there. My wife said the bathrooms were clean, fire pits at each site along with Bear boxes. If it would’ve had water I would’ve given it a 5.
The Juniper campground is perfection. The layout of the campground allows for both RV and tent camping, while still having you own quiet area. Plenty of water filling stations, and bear boxes. The evening ranger presentations, held at the amphitheater, are informative and interactive.
A lot of open spaces, quiet, good hiking
