Only 2 sites, pullthru w/water and electric.

The host will accommodate you for dry camping.

This park is isolated! Super quiet, and WOW stargazing.

Show up early in the day and hang around to see what

the host can do fer ya.

Highly recommend! We camped at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site in a Motorhome.

Beautiful setting, very quiet. More than 21,000 petroglyphs can be seen from an easy hiking trail. There is also a short trail to some pueblo remains. The price is for a site with electric and water, reflecting Federal senior pass discount. Without hookups it would have been only $3.50. We camped at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site in a Travel Trailer.

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 at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site 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 at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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 at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site 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.

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 at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site in a Motorhome.
