The Best $5 campsite

We love this area. Amazing hiking and mtb’ing trails. And, a nice lake.

Nice spot

Every site has a metal pavilion! Dusty but quiet! Easy to find! Los of room!

So. Much. Space.

Small campground with massive campsites. This campground could easily squeeze double, if not triple, the sites out of these woods, but someone decided to let everyone breath a little here, and we should thank that someone. Granted, it's a small crawl to one of the only two bathroom huts (each with…

Easy freeway access, close to shopping

Grants NM is about a hour west of Albuquerque. Great location if coming from the west, you’re tired and want a place to stay. The sites are pull through and full hookup. There is a dump station available if you are passing through. The registration process was super easy. Laundry facilities…

Perfect spot for a few days of camping no no

We are doing a trip across the country, looking for cheap to free campsite and this one wast perfect. Right off the Interstate, the sign can be easily missed so keep an eye out. We drove 3 miles down a dirt road before picking our spot. You could easily park anywhere but they have some spots with…

OK place for 1-2 nights

This is a huge complex that contains a convention center, museum, hiking trails, and a rodeo/bull riding arena in addition to two camping areas. The arena is tucked into the red hills so it is a pretty nice spot. There also must be 1000 stalls for horses and livestock, it is really massive. The…

Right next to the highway, but you’d never know it was there

We just needed a place to spend the night and arrived late in the evening, so unfortunately we weren’t able to explore the area. We only drove about 1.5 miles passed the gates, but we saw several camp spots with fire rings. The road is grated and well maintained. We really weren’t sure what to…

Great spot for a night’s sleep

Quick drive to this surprisingly secluded place to spend the night on our way through. Road situation is a little confusing—pin drops up to the left, but as we left in the morning we saw some folks who had taken the right side of the initial fork, so seems like both ways are an option. For the left…

Premium free site

Only 10 sites and all have covered picnic tables, bbq grill and fire ring. Unfortunately maybe 1 or 2 are level sites. A 30’ rv might be the max because of the uneven ground. I have a 22’ TT and had to use extra blocks to level out. When I arrived their were only 2 sites left. The one I didn’t pick…

Easy access, good facilities

Each site has a covered patio with picnic table and a fire pit. We stopped through here for one night on our way to AZ and it worked out really well. No check-in/fees; first come first serve. There were a few spots open when we rolled in around 1800.

Great spot by El Malpais

We ended up camping in the truck bed here after a few other remote sites. The clean showers and bathrooms were greatly appreciated after a few days of roughing it and we were able to restock our water before continuing on. Most people staying in the park seemed to be full time residents. The vibe…

Not open December through March

The road is closed to 6 mile canyon and the dispersed camping there; I stayed outside the fence for the night and had no issues. You can hear the highway but its not a huge issue.

Easy stop on the way to Flagstaff

We stopped here for the night and caught a nice sunset. The gate to dispersed camping is closed but we parked outside of the gate with no issues for the evening

Nice spot to stop

It’s not scenic by any means but, it is close to Mal Pais National Monument (across the street) and the people that work here are super nice. Great price for a full hookup with clean bathrooms and showers.

Yup, it's dispersed camping.

Nothing fancy. Close to I-40 but you can get far enough away to limit road noise. Road is good enough to drag a camper back. Sites are pretty decent sized. Good place to camp for the night of going climbing around Gallup.
