This park is closed. I have never camped there but I have stored my RV there during the winter for years. It changed hands last year. This year when I called the phone was disconnected. Curiosity made me drive out there. All sites are empty. The signs are down and the gate is closed. There is a for sale sign. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park is well off the main road and it is quiet. I can't understand the very high ratings previously posted, the campground is basically a dirt/gravel lot with a few small trees in the middle of the desert. No cable TV, no office, no staff to speak of, although a lady met us and just had us park and fill out a self registration envelope and put the money in it. Easy access for big rigs. Very basic with no nothing to offer, so if this is what you are looking for, this place is it. Three or four sites were long term, and besides ourselves and our traveling companions, the campground was empty. Would choose somewhere else next time. The rate was for Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located well off the road and quiet. A small park with most spaces filled with permanents who were not a problem. A good value for the PA rate. Park has wide, long and level spaces. Rest rooms and showers could use a deep cleaning. Water pressure could be better in the shower. Washing machines need to be wiped down. Hard water. Very wide interior roads. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Daily rate is based on Passport America rate. Roads and pads are gravel. Park is some distance off the main highway. Restrooms and showers were very clean, but there is only a single men's and single women's room. No shade, but great for satellite. Self registration. Some traffic noise due to proximity to freeway. Free Wi-Fi but we were never able to connect. Made for a great base to explore the White Sands area. Park was a good value for the money, and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Being a Passport America member we are skeptical of some of the parks that are off the beaten path. This park was a great surprise. We used their laundry facilities which were clean and all of the machines worked. There is also a large selection of books in their book exchange which is in the laundry room and the men's bathroom. The parks power, water and sewer were very good. Our Verizon cell and Aircard signal was very strong. The site was almost level and wide enough not to be hemmed in. This a great little park for what it is. We will stay here again when we are passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A good basic campground that makes a great home base while touring the White Sands, Lincoln County ("Billy the Kid") and Alamogordo areas of New Mexico. Nothing fancy, but it is very quiet, has friendly owners and even has a hair salon on site. We were going to stay only 4 nights but extended when we found the place to be so quiet and so much to do in the area. Don't know how you could find a better value for the Passport America dollar! We camped here in a Motorhome.
GN park. Chg extra for dogs. Dogs loved walking in nearby pasture grass. Close to White Sands, Indian picture rocks. Quiet park, most helpful staff. Wonderful Mexican food restaurant in Tularosa. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park does not have a lot of bells and whistles but it does have full hook-ups, level pull-thru sites, pretty views, lots of peace and quiet and clean restrooms and laundry. The hair salon on site is an amenity you don't often find. We liked it a lot, have stayed there twice and will return if in the area again. Passport America park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I gave this park a nine because it was quiet, (no train or road noise) well maintained, good phone and satellite connection. It doesn't have all the amenities as large parks, but it had all we were looking for, for a couple of days rest. The owner, manager has her own beauty shop and I got a great haircut!! I can't remember what I paid, but I do know it wasn't very much. She was also very nice, and we would stay there again if we are in the area. We had North American Camping Club for the $10 fee. That's half off the original price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful. We pulled in intending to stay for the afternoon, not knowing there was camping available here, and ended up staying for the night. There are 2 huge pull through sites with water and electric. Views are amazing. Hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a BLM campground and well kept. There are level gravel sites, 2 with power and water. I rated this as a BLM campground, not a resort. Host is friendly and makes sure you're happy. The petroglyphs are very interesting. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a forest service campground not a RV park. There are no hookups and no showers. The nearest dump site is either south of Tularosa behind the large large truck stop on the west side of 50/70 or north at Valley of Fires in Carrizozo. This campground is 13 miles off US 54 24 miles south of Carrizozo or 18 miles north of Tularosa. Turn east on FR 579. There is not a campground sign but there is a store/gallery at corner. The campground is 13 miles from the turn. The last seven miles are are unpaved. You will pass the Three Rivers Petroglyph site and cg at 4.5 miles. I love this Three Rivers because it is totally off the beaten path. There are no road sounds. The hiking is wonderful. The scenery is beautiful. The host has been there for years and will bend over backward to help you. There are several good RV sites and many good tent sites. This is a first come campground. No reservations. It is popular with the locals on weekends. If you feel that this place may be too rustic for you stop for one night at the Petroglyph site. Then drive down and check out Three Rivers. If it looks like your sort of place tow your rig down to it the next day. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is not a fancy place so don't expect it to be a KOA. There are no trees. This is high dessert country. It is a Bureau of Land Management campground. They tend to be very basic. They are destination sites not 5 Star motels. What it does have is 20,000 petroglyphs created between 900 and 1400 AD and well maintained trails for viewing them. Dogs are not allowed on trails. The campground is low usage but the trails are heavily used. People come from all over the world to visit the petroglyphs. Banning dogs from trails is fast becoming standard at national parks i.e. Bandelier, Big Bend, Rocky Mountain. Dogs on leashes are welcome in the campground. There are 10 sites for tents and small RV's at the edge of the parking lot plus 2 pull thru sites with electric hookups. There are no reservations. This park has flush toilets but no showers. The park is off US 50 17 miles north of Tularosa and 28 miles south of Carrizozo. There is another larger and fancier BLM campground, Valley of Fires, at Carrizozo. Other than that camping choices are very limited between Las Vegas and Alamogordo. This is a good place to overnight. And the price is right. It is safe and clean. I would camp there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Hosts are rude, pets are barely welcome. Water has a funny smell, but is soft. Only two hook-up sites and are usually full. Petroglyphs are nice, but I recommend it as a day visit. Dogs are NOT allowed on trails. A Park Service campground is 8 miles up the road, but has no hookups. Gate here is closed from 7 PM to 8 AM, but not locked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
