Great Views

We arrived after dark. The road was easily accessible for a car. The site was cleared and ready for a tent. Las Cruces city glow is visible in the distance at night. The stars were out. We heard coyotes at some point in the night. The morning brought a brilliant sunrise over the mountains in the…

Quiet spot with amazing views

Nestled a few miles off the main road, this campground has incredible views. The sites are spacious. The sites are on a steep hill and some sites have a few steps up or down from your car. The facility is incredibly clean.

You are very close to White Sands NP.

Las Cruses is a few miles away.…

Affordable Rates for passing through

The rates were very reasonable and the park seemed to be safe. However, the pads are extremely close together. If you are staying longer than one or two nights, I would prefer a quieter place. The park is located right next to I-10 and along a road. Unfortunately, it is very noisy all night from…

Peaceful & Relaxing

Stayed for 2 nights in early May. A few spaces left available each night. Quiet, extremely well maintained and clean toilets. Beautiful views and sunsets. Great and strenuous hike up Dog Canyon from the campsite with beautiful views, about 5.5 miles but the recommendation is to allow 8 to 10 hours.…

Lovely Campground

Beautiful campground near Las Cruces NM and White Sands National Park. Love that the camp site all have covered structures over the picnic tables. Definitely keeps the sun off. We stayed in site 25. Plenty of room. No large RVs because they can't get up the road. Lots of folks camping in vans.…

Sacred Place

Hueco Tanks is truly a sacred place and the campground is serene. You enter Hueco Tanks knowing it’s something special, knowing it’s something special both culturally and physically. Humans have lived here for centuries due to the natural holes that hold rain water in the stone, and the Boulder…

Late night stop

Pulled in after dark without a reservation. Luckily there were a few spots left as I couldn’t drive another mile. Easy access from the I-10, park looked really nice, even in the daylight. Great views as the park is on the hilltop. Would use again if passing through.

Convenient

Like most KOAs this one is well maintained. Right in town so not scenic but close to shops and restaurants. They have gravel tent sites for $30 which is high for tents but typical for KOA.

Nice/central to White Sands

Good, clean state park campground central to Alamogordo and White Sands.

Pros:

  • Location/easy to get to
  • A good mix of pull through and tent sites with plenty of room to drive in.
  • Views on both sides are spectacular
  • Reasonably spaced, not super private but that is pretty much any paid…

Great state park to visit

The camping spots have a (mostly) level concrete pad to park your rig on, be it trailer, van or tent. We had water, electricity, fire pit and an Adobe structure covering the picnic table. Some spots were a little close which would be great if you were visiting with friends. The restrooms were just…

Great little spot

First come first serve with clean pit toilets and trash bins. It has beautiful views and great hikes. I will be coming back!

Beautiful but primitive

This is a lovely park. Unfortunately, we had to bail on our reservation since previous reviews (and reviews on other sites) and the reservation system led us astray. We booked an electric only to arrive and find out it was a non-electric site. Talked to a great camp host who tried to help but…

Nice flat spots

Just stayed here one night. We stayed in spot number 6, 30A hookup. The space and the view of the mountains was very nice, but the bath house may as well have been non-existent. The ladies room didn’t have any functioning showers and only one working toilet. The men’s room had one working toilet…

I've been on a nationwide roadtrip for a few months that now and I have tent camped alone in many sites from Florida to Arkansas to, now, New Mexico. I chose Aguirra because of its close proximity to White Sands National Park. It is a First Come First Serve site and you must pay in cash. I was…
