“Nice park, just don’t follow Waze GPS”

Reviewed Mar 25, 2019

This is a nice park. It is a terraced park against the Sacramento Mountains with valley views. Our WAZE GPS had us turn on Taylor RanchRoad off of US 54. Don’t go that way. Part of it is gravel. Just turn onto Dog Canyon Rd off of US 54. Dog Canyon dead ends at the park. We have a 38 ft DP with a toad. We found a spot on a Friday a... more

We planned to visit White Sands National Park and chose this spot for the location, and for the value. $10 for a site without hookups BUT right near our site (#30) was a water spigot, 2 trash cans and a shower just a short walking distance away. There are other sites that have water and electric at $14. Our site was fairly level, had a... more

“Gorgeous views, great campsite”

Reviewed Mar 14, 2019

Overall Rating

We ended up here because White Sands was having a missile test and there was no camping. This site had great reviews and it definitely lived up to them! Check in was easy with the help of park staff members, and the tent only sites have a level platform for tents (always a plus!). Try to get a spot facing west for an amazing sunset 😊

“Rough week of weather. Want to return when better. Had wonderful few hours of calm to visit White Sands.”

1. Based on other reviews not read until later, it must be said that the showers are HOT and not push button. In fact, new faucets and shower handles were installed the day before we left. 2. No site available on arrival. Want others who may experience same & are OK with dispersed to know of BLM just down the hill from the park. ... more

This by far was our favorite camp spot to date. The views are just spectacular in this campground. It is at the base of beautiful mountains. Sunrises, sunsets, and moon rises are a real treat here. We ended up staying longer to watch the lunar eclipse because it was the perfect location. Campground is very clean ,very quiet. Staff is s... more

This state park is easy to locate. It’s about 4 miles off the main highway nestled right up against a range of beautiful and very large mountains. There is developed sites with fire rings and some of them have small pavilions for $10 a night. Some sites also have water and electrical hook ups for $14 a night. There were a good hand... more

We loved this campground. The views were incredible. Early October, it seemed quite busy although there seemed to be plenty of non-hookup sites. Very interesting visitor center with information about Oliver Lee and "Frenchy." Close to both White Sands and Cloudcroft.

Quiet park well outside of town. We were surprised to find only two open electric sites when we arrived in early afternoon on a Wednesday in early March. The site presented some major front-to-back leveling issues with our 32' travel trailer but we got it done using all 30 of our leveling blocks. We only stayed two nights but would hav... more

When you arrive, your destination will not be advertised until the actual turn; so, have your GPS ready or be on the lookout. The campground itself is off the main road a few miles. It backs up right to the Sacramento Mountains. We were already done with the whole desert experience by this point, but the mountains did make a beautif... more
