“Great place through the week but the "toys'" roll in on the weekends”
Reviewed Feb 15, 2017
Mescalero Sands North Dunes OHV Area was a great couple day stay for us. We pulled in on a Thursday (2/9/17) to an empty BLM property. We disconnected the “toad” and went exploring the area. There aren’t to many places to set up our motorhome so we took the first picnic/camping area just a 1/4 mile in. The road is meant for trucks pulling there toy’s so we went slow because of the washboarding of the road. None the less it’s a wide road and no worries about getting in at all. The area we set up in was more than ample for our rig and toad to get in and set up. We were parked right next to a table under a pavilion and a rather large sand dune!
We found plenty of hiking in the area with/without shoes. The sand was great to walk on but we had wished there was more of it. Plenty of ATV/OHV paths to hike for a different one each time we took off. The sand dunes offered a great way to look at the tracks all the wildlife made.
We could see the road from our spot but only heard the traffic only intermittently. On word of caution though, the wind here can get pretty strong. We incurred it’s wrath the night before we left and had a hard time sleeping. We ended up bringing in the slides to ride the storm out. (REO reference implied).
The toy’s started rolling in for the weekend of fun so we were kinda glad our plan was to leave. This is their area and we were just visitors.
Staying through the week seems like a safe bet but the weekends might get a bit noisy.
