“We loved it and the scenery grows on you...”

We picked this spot as a base to do White Sands and the space museum in Alomogordo. At first the terrain didn't strike me, but then, after seeing the sunset, the stars and especially doing a hike (from the CG), it really charmed us! Position yourself carefully for your desired views of the mountains and the sunsets. Or just go for it -... more

“I loved the night views!”

Reviewed May 07, 2015

This was a great spot near the top but is reservable and has electric. I am sure I would not mind one of the non-electric, non-reserveable spots now. The views are so amazing, you can see for miles. There is a short nature type trail and the Dog Canyon trail that travels up and around the mountain. I camped here in late April and i... more

We came without a reservation and didn't have a problem finding a site 3rd week in March.

“Great Views”

Reviewed Mar 04, 2015

Overall Rating

After driving past some rather depressed areas of Alamogordo's outskirts, you end up at the state park which is nestled right up on the mountains at the base of Dog Canyon, and pretty much everywhere in the campground has a perfect sunset view of the Tularusa Basin and the Organ Mountains. The campsites are pretty simple (electric and ... more
