    Tijeras, New Mexico

    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.

    Placitas, New Mexico

    Welcome to the Top of New Mexico - Dispersed Site, a hidden gem near Albuquerque, NM. This spot is perfect for those who love a bit of adventure and don't mind roughing it. The area is wide open, offering stunning views, especially at sunset. You might even catch a glimpse of wild horses roaming around, which adds a magical touch to your stay.

    Getting here can be a bit tricky. You'll need to navigate through a residential area and find your way up a winding road. But once you arrive, you'll be rewarded with a vast, open space where you can set up camp pretty much anywhere. Just be mindful of the fragile vegetation and stick to existing paths to help preserve the natural beauty.

    One thing to note: it's windy up here. Almost every visitor mentions it, so come prepared. The wind can be a bit of a challenge, but it also keeps things cool during the day. And trust me, the sunsets are worth it. They're absolutely breathtaking.

    There are no amenities like toilets, showers, or drinking water, so you'll need to bring everything you need and pack out all your trash. Fires are allowed, but given the dry conditions, it's best to be cautious and maybe skip the campfire altogether.

    Pets are welcome, but keep them leashed or under voice command. The area is popular with local walkers, and no one wants a surprise encounter with an unleashed dog.

    In short, if you're looking for a peaceful, scenic spot with a touch of wild, this is the place for you. Just come prepared, respect the land, and enjoy the incredible views.

    Santa Fe, New Mexico

    Welcome to the Sante Fe National Forest BLM-Road 62 Dispersed camping area in New Mexico. This spot is perfect for those who enjoy a more rugged, no-frills camping experience. It's a large area with plenty of space to set up camp wherever you can get your vehicle. The main roads are in decent shape, but the side roads can be a bit rough, so be prepared for some bumps.

    One of the standout features here is the sheer openness and the beautiful views of the surrounding area. Sunrises and sunsets are particularly stunning, making it a great place for photography or just soaking in the natural beauty. Despite being close to a landfill, you won't notice any smell or garbage, which is a pleasant surprise.

    There are no hookups or running water, so come prepared with your own supplies. The only amenity you'll find is a vault toilet near the entrance. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a campfire under the stars, but you'll need to bring your own firewood.

    Pets are welcome, but keep in mind that not everyone keeps their dogs on a leash, so if you're bringing your furry friend, be prepared for some canine visitors. The area is also popular for activities like hiking and shooting, so it can get a bit noisy at times.

    Overall, if you're looking for a free, spacious, and scenic spot near Santa Fe, this dispersed camping area is a solid choice. Just remember to pack out all your trash and leave the place better than you found it. Enjoy your stay!

    Santa Fe, New Mexico

    Santa Fe Skies RV Park is family built, owned and operated. It sits on 17 acres overlooking the beautiful mountains of Santa Fe, New Mexico. We are "Big Rig friendly". Fifty five sites are pull-thrus designed to accommodate large motor coaches and travel trailer rigs. All sites are equipped with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. Water and Sewer are available at all pull-thru and almost all back-in sites. We are "pet friendly". Free Wifi is available.

    The RV Park is within a short driving distance to two major shopping malls (one an outlet mall), several restaurants, a large supermarket and other local businesses. We are located just off the scenic Turquoise Trail, which includes the historic Villages of Cerrillos and the artist center of Madrid. It is only a short distance from the 17th Century Spanish Colonial Living History Museum, El Rancho de Las Golondrinas, which was the last overnight stop for travelers coming to Santa Fe on the El Camino Real from Mexico.

    The city of Santa Fe is located at the base of the Sangre de Cristo mountains at an altitude of 7,000 ft. above sea level. (That is 1,500 ft. higher than Denver, Colorado.) Since the Santa Fe Skies RV Park sits on a ridge just outside of town, you get a panoramic view of the entire Santa Fe area! Not only can you see the historic Sangre de Cristo Mountains, where the sunset makes the mountains shine with a red glow in the evening (hence the name "Sangre de Cristo" or "Blood of Christ"), you can also see the Jemez Mountains to the west, and in the south and southwest the Cerrillos Hills, the Ortiz Mountains and the Sandia Peak at the base of which lies the city of Albuquerque.

Same day reservations are not available for group campsites.

    Recreation

    Bandelier is home to over 70 miles (113 km) of hiking trails most of which are located within federally designated wilderness. Two trails are accessible directly from Juniper Family Campground. The Frey Trail follows the historic route into Frijoles Canyon and descends down the canyon wall to the Visitor Center and the Main Loop Trail.

    Natural Features

    Bandelier National Monument protects over 33,000 acres (13355 ha) of rugged, beautiful canyon and mesa country which features evidence of human presence going back over 11,000 years. Petroglyphs, dwellings carved into the soft rock cliffs, and standing masonry walls pay tribute to the early days of a culture that still survives in the surrounding communities.____ Bandelier National Monument sits at the southern end of the Pajarito (Spanish for little bird) Plateau. The plateau was formed by two eruptions 1.6 and 1.4 million years ago. Home to the Bandelier Wilderness, Bandelier ranges from 5340 ft (1628 m) at the Rio Grande River to the south and 10,199 ft (3109 m) at the summit of Cerro Grande to the north, almost a mile of elevation change in just under 12 miles (19 km). This elevation gradient creates a unique diversity of habitats specific to Northern New Mexico. The diversity of habitats and quick access to water supported a relatively large population of Ancestral Pueblo people. Currently, Pi__on-Juniper woodlands dominate in the southern parts of the park transitioning through ponderosa pine savannahs and forests, finally reaching mixed conifer forests at the highest elevation. Scattered throughout the park are desert grasslands, montane meadows, and riparian areas in the canyon bottoms. Over 70 miles (113 km) of trails at Bandelier climb in and out of deep canyons and cross large flat mesas, showcasing the entire spectrum of volcanic geology and ecosystems found within the park. The park is home to over 55 species of mammals including mule deer, Abert's squirrels, mountain lions, black bears, and 16 species of bats. Reptiles and amphibians of all shapes and sizes can be seen. Birds such as Steller's jays, canyon towhees and mountain chickadees stay year-round, whereas turkey vultures, western tanagers, and black-headed grosbeaks are summer residents.
