“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!!”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“Beautiful place.”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“Most gorgeous sunset and next to white sands! ”

Reviewed Mar 08, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“Spacious and clean”

Reviewed Feb 25, 2018

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

Pretty location on the lake with plenty of sites to choose from. Tight entrance if you are coming in from the east, but doable if you go slow.

“Beautiful Lakefront Camping near White Sands”

Reviewed Feb 22, 2018

Overall Rating

The entry gate is actually at GPS 32.803973, -106.122940 (the posted GPS is the main parking lot but Google maps was a little goofy for us with those coordinates). As others have said, the entry gate area is a little tight, but we were fine in our 33' motorhome with tow car hooked up. I hopped out to help guide through the gate posts ... more

“Beautiful boondocking spot next to White Sands National Monument. ”

Reviewed Nov 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Some reviews said it was smelly but on our stay on November 13, 2017 it wasn't. We parked at the beginning since we have a 35' diesel Class A and toad. Enjoyed nice weather and a beautiful sunset.

“The Frill is Being So Close to White Sands”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2017

Overall Rating

Sure, this spot lacks frills. There are no amenities, you won't get a lot of privacy, and the "pond" does have a slight odor. But! It's minutes from White Sands, my neighbors were quiet, the road noise is minimal, and the sunset over the water is quite pretty. The Military Police swung through to give a wave but didn't stop to s... more
