“Beautiful campground that we discovered by accident.”

Reviewed Apr 18, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here in April 2018, site #17 in A loop. Check-in is by an automated kiosk machine - credit and debit cards only - no cash. To pay by cash, you must drive 2 miles to the visitor center during their open hours. Previous review said vault toilets, but the two restrooms have flush toilets and sinks with work water (rare for NPS c... more

“Great rustic spot in National Park”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2018

Overall Rating

The campsite has 3 loops- we opted to stay in the B loop and found a spot that had some great hammock trees and good sun for the solar panels. There were trailheads walking distance from the campground. The spots are primitive with no hook ups but there is potable water and vault toilets throughout the campground as well as a dump stat... more

We stayed here first part of October 6th weather was great now that I'm older (AARP) age finding out October is a great time for traveling less people to enjoy our time but did find things were filling up at campground by 6:00 pm. Camp ground is part of the Bandelier Park and located at the entrance they have a self check in that take... more

“This is close to home and is a go to spot for us!”

Reviewed Oct 12, 2017

Overall Rating

Bandelier National Monument is a great place to camp. We have stayed here in tents as well as in our popup. So far we have stayed in loop B. Loop A has a little less shade and cover. Loop B a little more - mostly junipers and scattered ponderosa. Loop C is the best for shade with thicker ponderosa coverage - and as such it seems t... more

“Great Trees for Stringing a Hammock”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2017

Overall Rating

Juniper Campground at Bandelier has three loops - A, B and C. During my visit loops A and B were open but under renovation so there were no bathrooms or other services. As such, loop C (where I stayed) was packed full. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The campground is full of great pine trees, perfect for stringing a ha... more

“Peaceful. Privacy is available if you choose wisely.”

Reviewed Mar 09, 2015

Overall Rating

Great campground at Bandelier National Monument. Wasn't crowded at all during my stay in June, 2014. Stayed at site 39 in the Coyote Loop, which offered great isolation. You pay via a self-pay automatic kiosk where you enter the site number and it will tell you if it is, or isn't available. Online reservations also available. Du... more
