    Welcome to Joe Skeen Campground, a gem nestled near Grants, NM. This spot is a favorite among campers for its simplicity and natural beauty. Open year-round, it offers a peaceful retreat with some fantastic amenities for a free campground. Each site comes with a cement pad, picnic table, pavilion, fire pit, and BBQ stand, making it a comfortable place to set up camp.

    One of the standout features here is the vault toilets, which are kept clean and well-maintained. However, be sure to bring your own water, as there is none available on-site. Trash bins are conveniently located, so you can keep your campsite tidy without much hassle.

    The campground is first-come, first-serve, with ten spots available. If you're towing a trailer, be cautious of the dip in the road near the entrance. Some visitors have mentioned that it can be a bit tricky to navigate, especially with larger rigs. But once you're in, you'll find plenty of space, even for bigger setups like a 34' toy hauler.

    For those who enjoy a bit of connectivity, some cell service can be found near the top of the loop, particularly at site 8. It's not the strongest signal, but enough to get by if you need to stay in touch or stream a bit.

    The scenery here is stunning, with beautiful sunsets and a rugged landscape that offers a true escape from the hustle and bustle. The campground is fairly exposed, so it can get windy, and there's not much shade, making it ideal for spring and fall camping. If you're into hiking, there's a BLM dirt road near the entrance that's perfect for a stroll.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure. Just be mindful of the sharp lava rocks if you plan to explore the trails.

    Overall, Joe Skeen Campground is a fantastic spot for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors without breaking the bank. Whether you're in a tent or an RV, you'll find this place to be a welcoming and serene getaway.

    Jamestown, New Mexico

    Welcome to Six Mile Canyon, a dispersed camping area nestled in the Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands in New Mexico. This spot is a hidden gem for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle. The area is known for its peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery, with green canyon bluffs and rolling hills providing a picturesque backdrop.

    One of the standout features here is the sense of seclusion. Visitors have noted that the campsites are spaced far apart, giving you plenty of privacy. It's a great place to unwind and enjoy nature without the crowds. However, be prepared for a bit of a rough ride getting in. The road can be bumpy and muddy, especially after rain, so a vehicle with good clearance or 4WD is recommended.

    While the area lacks amenities like toilets, showers, and drinking water, it makes up for it with its natural beauty and tranquility. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a cozy campfire under the stars. Pets are welcome too, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure.

    For those who need to stay connected, some spots offer decent cell coverage, though it can be spotty depending on your provider. If you're lucky, you might even catch a stunning sunrise or sunset over the canyon.

    Whether you're setting up a tent or parking an RV, Six Mile Canyon offers a serene escape with plenty of room to explore. Just remember to pack out what you pack in and leave no trace to keep this beautiful area pristine for future visitors.
