    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.

    Individual BLM Field Offices may have additional or supplemental special camping rules or guidelines. Please call our Field Offices or visit our individual recreation websites for this information.

    BLM's overall policy is to allow dispersed camping on all the lands it administers with the following conditions and exceptions:

    Dispersed camping is generally allowed on public lands in New Mexico for no more than a period of 14 days within any period of 28 consecutive days. The 14-day limit may be reached either through a number of separate visits or through 14 days of continuous overnight occupation during the 28-day period. After this time period, you must relocate to another site at least 25 miles away. The purpose of this is to prevent damage to sensitive resources caused by continual use of any particular areas.

    Camping is prohibited within 900 feet of any developed water source such as a guzzler or watering trough so that the water is accessible to wildlife and livestock. Please do not park your vehicles near these waters or take any actions that would disturb wildlife or livestock from using these waters.

    Campfires must be attended at all times. Campers must comply with all fire restrictions.

    When using a motorized vehicle for camping access please park your vehicle near existing roads or existing undeveloped campsites.

    Camping is permitted within all units of the National Wilderness Preservation System administered by the BLM in New Mexico. However, all motorized and mechanized vehicles and equipment are strictly prohibited in these areas. Campers must not dispose of refuse, hazardous materials, sewage, or gray water, in any manner that would pollute the surrounding area. Please pack it out, and dispose of those materials properly.
