“Summer storms -> High Winds”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2018

Overall Rating

This was quintessential New Mexico boondocking. It was easy to find, easy to access, open and free and absolutely beautiful with the desert in one direction and the Organ Mountains in the other. Very close to Las Cruces, but you can't see town from the campground. It was near perfect, until about 1am in the morning when a storm came... more

“Great location for visiting White Sands and Las Cruces”

Reviewed May 16, 2018

Overall Rating

The spot is easy to get to and is just outside the city of Las Cruces. Las Cruces was surprisingly nice. I knew nothing about the city before staying at this site. We were only going to spend two nights at this spot and visit White Sands before moving on to Arizona, but the city of Las Cruces was so close by to this site and so nice... more

“Fantastic view in a very quiet place”

Reviewed Apr 24, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived in early afternoon and had no problem getting a great spot. The road coming in is rough but very doable. There are a handful of generously sized pull through spots and there is an overflow area that by the end of the day has about 4 vehicles in. Our site was gorgeous and faced the mountains. There is a cool trail next th... more

“Quiet and easy”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2018

Adored this site - the spots with the firepits were taken on each night I stayed, but I had no problems pulling into the lot where the trail starts and staying there overnight. Lovely people around each time and very quiet through the night. The sunsets against the mountains behind are beautiful and the lights of Las Cruces look cool b... more

Beautiful views! not a whole lot of spots but a large parking lot for hikers & they seem to allow people to set up their trailers there as well. we weren't able to get any further than the parking lot as our vehicles low clearance kept us from going further down the road however I saw several vanlifers trec further down that road.

“Amazing View!”

Reviewed Feb 13, 2018

Overall Rating

The views at this spot are amazing. Rangers patrol regularly and enforce rules on where people can park. There are 5 fire rings and a parking area. You are allowed to camp in any of these spots. There are a couple of confusing spots where the grass has been flattened but they are NOT real spots and we witnessed a couple people bein... more

“Scenic dispersed camping at a BLM trailhead near Las Cruces”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2018

Overall Rating

Great place to post up close to Las Cruces, Organ Mountains and with in striking distance of White Sands. Some spots away from the actual trailhead and a large gravel lot where trail begins. Rangers patroled at least once per day and were friendly. Spectacular views of the mountains and the lights of Las Cruces at night. Sierra Vista T... more

“Stunning Views of the Organ Mountains”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2018

Overall Rating

This was our first boondocking experience and it was an awesome one thanks to Campendium. Since we are in a 37-foot fifth wheel I wasn't comfortable with traveling down the dirt road to camp at the trail head. Luckily there was a "site" off the initial turnaround that was plenty big. As for the negatives: 1) It was super windy but i... more
