Beautiful spot to stay, only 4. - 6 level spots depending on rv length. We stayed with a 36 ft pulling a Jeep 4 door.

This is our first night ever boondocking and we couldn't be happier. We are parked with one other trailer here. There are a few cars in the parking area of people hiking. Not noisy or intrusive at all. The view is gorgeous and we even saw a few stray cows hanging out. We would recommend this site!

“Beautiful spot and great hike out our doorstep”

Reviewed Jan 06, 2019

Great place for an overnight. We were originally just going to stay 1 night but ended up doing the 6 mile hike to the top of Baylor Pass and back so stayed 2. Parking lot has an area off to the right side as you enter that is more out of the way of the main parking area which is active with hikers coming and going. The lot does slope q... more

“Awesome place to stay overnight. ”

Reviewed Dec 22, 2018

Overall Rating

As opposed to what the previous guy said, I think the place is great. It is a trailhead, but it’s the trailhead at the base of the Organ mountains, so you get an amazing view at sunset and sunrise. Great spot, had no problems. Free and pretty secluded.

“Hellacious wind and traffic”

Reviewed Oct 16, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived here to find decent parking area and trailhead. The wind has been gusting to 50mph since we got here. People come and go from this place constantly, and nearly none of them are here to hike the trail. Cars were in and out all night long, leaving us to wonder if illegal activity is taking place. Cows all around, but are n... more

“Great overnight stop "close" to White Sands. ”

Reviewed Mar 15, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed down the road at Aguirre the night before but their gate gets locked at 6:00 PM (may change to 8:00 PM now that's daylight savings has changed). We wanted to see the sunset at White Sands and knew we would not make it back before the gate closed so we stayed at Baylor Pass. We highly recommend seeing the sunset at White San... more
