“Good National Park Campground”

Reviewed Jun 19, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here for a week and a half in the middle of June 2019. We are a 30 ft travel trailer with a Ram 2500. I’d say between all three loops, there were probably 8-10 sites where we would fit. Some of those spots were taken when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon, but we were able to snag spot #9 on the Abert’s Squirrel loop. It w... more

“Beautiful campground & amazing park”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2019

Overall Rating

This campground is just lovely, situated amongst the trees. I arrived on a Sunday and had a good choice of sites so I picked one with no neighbors, trees around for privacy and a gorgeous view onto a meadow with rocks behind. Unfortunately while I was off on a hike neighbors arrived who don’t know how to use their camping voices and... more

We LOVE this place!! Typical National Park campground; dry camping only, no hookups. Sites are small, geared more toward tent camping. I think we snagged the only available site that could accommodate our 30' Airstream. Lots of Juniper Trees, thus lots of shade, but we were able to get enough sun to charge our solar system.

“Beautiful campground that we discovered by accident.”

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”

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

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

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
