“Breath Taking”

Reviewed Oct 24, 2018

Overall Rating

I spent 7 years in the Northwest corner of NM (Farm9ngton) in the early 70's. I had truly forgot how breath taking Angel Peak is. You have to experience it to understand. I know there are many treasures across this vast country and A.P. is one of them
We will come back

“A great surprise!”

Reviewed Oct 24, 2018

Overall Rating

Angel Peak was an unexpected surprise on a stopover through New Mexico. I almost turned around once leaving the highway...6 miles of really bad washboard. I'm glad we stuck it out and made it to the end. It was such a beautiful view that we decided to move some days around on our trip and spend a second free-of-charge night. The vi... more

We were here the last week in August 2018 - was planning on staying 2 nights but was so peaceful and beautiful that we stayed 4 nights - we had the last and largest spot right on the edge of the canyon - gorgeous views and no security lights or street lights to block the amazing night skies - there was only two other campers there... more

“Boondocking with a view!”

Reviewed Oct 17, 2018

Overall Rating

We were looking for a CG in the general area to break up a long drive. We prefer boondocking spots as we're self-contained. We stayed on a weeknight in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a beautiful, primitive CG! We noted the sign to Angel Peak Scenic Area/ RD 7175 heading east 15 miles south of Bloomfield. The 6-mile unpaved r... more

“Great experience 09/18”

Reviewed Oct 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We were headed to Chaco Canyon only to find a star gazers convention and the campground was full. Taking the long grueling trip back to 550 we opted for Angel Peak. This is a vista you should not pass over. Covered tables and o.k. outhouses. Will stay here again, great spot to stay and recharge your battery, we had been on the road fo... more

“Very unusual place to camp”

Reviewed May 06, 2018

Overall Rating

All in all we liked this spot. There are only 2 or 3 spots that we could fit into and the one we got was huge, I believe it could be used as a double but the campground wasn't busy so we had no problems. The road in off the highway was quite 'washboardy' which I don't like. It took us a while to drive the 10Km (6 miles) in because we ... more

“What a find! ”

Reviewed Mar 19, 2018

Overall Rating

I was driving late at night on the adjacent highway and I saw the sign for the Angel Peak and I gave it a try. When I got there it was so dark I didn't know what to expect in the morning. I was in for quite the surprise! The view is simply amazing! You can camp right on the side of the canyon and you can see the snowy peaks in the back... more

“Potential for very underrated beautiful location”

Reviewed May 28, 2016

Overall Rating

GPS Warning: if approaching on 550 from the south (eg Albuquerque) do NOT take the ‘7225’ road the GPS might advise – it’s not the right road! Take the ‘next right turn’ further north – there is a brown BLM “Angel Peak Scenic Area” sign - the 7175 (but sign was knocked over when we came there, mid May2016) across cattle grid. Past so... more
