“Free Camping Minutes Away from White Sands”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We chose this place for its proximity to White Sands National Monument (5 minutes away) and the price (free!). What we got was a bonus as our spot was right on the lake and we had good Verizon cell service to boot. We didn’t experience any bad smells from the lake/pond when we were there (March 2018) and I have an overly sensitive nose... more

“Perfect home base for exploring the area”

Reviewed Nov 03, 2018

Overall Rating

We pulled in and got set up just in time for sunset. There were a couple of others campers already there and a few more that came as the night went on, mostly car campers. We found it to be pretty clean of trash with a nice view, we didn’t experience any odors from the lake that others complained of. The military jets are flying overhe... more

“Ugly sites and noisy.”

Reviewed Oct 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Ugly sites, highway & air traffic noise, the lake smells and the water looks putrid (no swimming posted). The vistas were nice. The place was packed by 7pm on a Wednesday. Tolerable for one night though we wouldn't consider it again.

“Perfect for a White Sands visit”

Reviewed May 08, 2018

Overall Rating

It's great to stay this close to White Sands, because it can be all-day-long-mega-windy here, which makes visiting the National Monument extremely unpleasant. Camp here and wait for the wind to die down before visiting the dunes. Definitely check the forecast (use the Holloman AFB weather station) before coming. The wind here can be br... more

“Serene setting and terrific proximity to White Sands Natl Monument”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here for three nights and although we faced 35mph winds (with gusts over 45mph) for an entire day of our visit, this is one of the most peaceful and pretty settings we've camped in across the country. Value: Tremendous value for how scenic it was. As you would expect for a free site, there's no hook-ups and it takes a li... more

“Beautiful camping just outside of White Sands National Monument thanks to the USAF!!”

We loved this spot just down the street from White Sands National Monument. Thanks to the United States Air Force and the Holloman AFB Commander for allowing free camping here; USAF Vet and I just couldn't help it. :) Although the lake was awesome, the sunset was absolutely amazing and the cell coverage allowed us to work without in... more

After visiting White Sands we thought ending up at Walmart in Alamogordo. Campendium gave us a better place. The first lake was empty but in the second lake was plenty water for the birds and small animals we saw. Super nice place, we stayed a second night. Be careful with long vehicles the entrance is some narrow with an angle.... more

Wow! As we pulled in the most gorgeous sunset took place over the water. Even better yet; wake up, roll over, open the windows and take in the sunrise over the mountains to one side and the lake on other. Great location; Right down the street from White Sands National monument. Do the sunset stroll! Connection; We we’re able to... more

We arrived on a weekday and there were only 3 or 4 RV’s. We found a spot right by the lake with plenty of room. It wasn’t too busy while we were there. We enjoyed this site! It was clean and the water didn’t smell too bad. Full LTE service and not too much noise from the road. We slept well each night and enjoyed how close it w... more
