We really loved this place. Beautiful setting, hiking trails all over, there are people around but you feel like you have your own space, and of course free. Very quiet.
Easy access from road for larger vehicles. There are pullouts as you are driving in for your own space. However, it gets crowded and spaces are taken quickly. Beautiful area, Organ Mountains to the east and city lights of Las Cruces to the west.
Good Verizon and AT&T reception.
This location is convenient enough to go back into town for things you need. We went to Holiday World RV (which I highly recommend) to get a repair done and returned to the area. We were lucky enough to get our same spot back. Feels like a campground, other campers friendly and respectful of normal noise restrictions you’d get at an actual campground. Good place to stay if you are planning on going to White Sands. BLM ranger stopped by about once per day to check on things, which was nice. Really beautiful sunset.
