“Nice park with many advanced mountain hiking features and 30 mins from White Sands Nat'l Monument”

Reviewed Mar 29, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a very rugged location about 20 minutes outside of Alamogordo, NM and about 30 minutes away from White Sands national monument. The Dog Canyon trail is worth it but be prepared if you want to hike the whole thing to take the warnings on the trail very seriously. The hike is not super difficult but in the first 1.5 miles I was t... more

“Wonderful State Park with Amazing Views”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here while visiting the White Sands National Monument. I wasn’t going to book here original because the white sands were about 40 minutes from this location. However, I am glad I made the choice to stay here and do the short drive over to the white sands. The sites are spacious and the views are amazing. We didn’t have sewer ... more

Reviewed Feb 25, 2018

We arrived on a Monday (Presidents Day) and there were several open spots. This park has a certain number of sites that are first-come-first-serve (our spot was first-come-first-serve) and the rest are by reservation only. When you pay for your stay, understand that there are no refunds so if you're not sure about how long you want to ... more

This is a great park, and I would stay here again many times over. Its a great place to take a long hike if your health and and adventure level is high enough. We did the 6 mile round trip to the cabin which includes 1500 feet of elevation gain, and it was great. Its not the best trail for dogs, so only take your pup if its level of... more

“Lots to Explore From This Campground”

There are only a few reservation sites here so we worked hard day after day checking the site to make sure we had one secured. We camped over New Year's and last minute one came open. We stayed in reservation spot #3 and it was gorgeous. We had a view looking at the whole canyon. We have a 24 foot camper and it fit great. There was a l... more

We drove up around 4 o'clock on a Friday and still found a great, large, fairly level site with amazing views of the Sacramento mountains and Tularosa Basin. It was a nonelectric site so only 10 dollars!!! A vault toilet and water was conveniently close by but other campsites felt very far away. Dog Canyon is beautiful with wonderful h... more
