    Dispersed Camping off FS 542 is a hidden gem nestled in the Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands in New Mexico. This spot is perfect for those who love a bit of adventure and don't mind roughing it. The road leading in is pretty rugged, so if you're driving a low-clearance vehicle, take it slow and steady.

    Once you get here, you'll find a peaceful area with plenty of space between sites, offering a good amount of privacy. The place is known for its quiet nights and stunning views, especially under a full moon or the Milky Way. There's no shortage of natural beauty, with trees providing just enough cover to make you feel secluded without being completely isolated.

    Campers have noted that while the area can get busy, especially on weekends, it generally remains quiet and respectful. The lack of amenities means you'll need to come prepared—there are no toilets, showers, or drinking water available. But on the plus side, you can have a campfire, and pets are welcome.

    Cell service is surprisingly good here, thanks to a nearby cell tower, so you can stay connected if needed. The area is also free to camp in, which is always a bonus. Just remember to pack out all your trash and leave no trace.

    If you're looking for a spot to unwind and enjoy some solitude, Dispersed Camping off FS 542 is worth the bumps and scrapes to get there. Just be sure to arrive before dark to navigate the rough road safely.
