Quietest Place On Earth

This small campground about 20 minutes east of Roswell, NM was the perfect place for us to spend a few days relaxing and wandering the desert trails of this OHV area. The campground only offers 5 large and well-kept campsites, on a first-come basis.  Even on the weekend, the area was extremely quiet.

With the landscape falling away toward the west, the sunsets were simply amazing. The area offered miles and miles of OHV trails which were good for hiking and mountain biking as well.

With a picnic table, grill, fire ring, and shelter, you cannot complain for $5 a night. The bathrooms were the cleanest pit-toilets we’ve ever seen and the area had extremely strong LTE (the tower was right there at the edge of the campground).   And, with our portable solar panel, we have always have all the electricity we could possibly need!  There is no water at this camping area, not even a nearby creek, so come prepared.  Roswell, offers all the amenities you could want, with full grocery stores, gas station and water/ ice kiosks. And, don't miss the Alien Museum!

  • Stunning sunsets!
  • All you need and well maintained.  The closest neighbor is 50-75 yards away.
  • ADA accessible facilities that are absolutely spotless!
  • That's Haystack Mountain in the distance, if you are wondering where the name comes from.
  • Lovely hiking, mountain biking, and OHV trails.  Look for animals tracks...there is soooo much wildlife out here!
  • Lots of space and ridiculously quiet.
  • Yep, just $5 for two or more people!
  • Afternoon light over the Chihuahuan Desert.
  • LTE is super strong!  Cell tower on the edge of the campground.  Great for digital nomads like us who need to get some work done while on the road.
