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

“Campground isn't the right word for this one”

Reviewed Jan 02, 2018

Overall Rating

There's really just a couple "official" camping spots here, but you're right at several really beautiful trails in the Organ Mountains. Next time we'd probably try the actual BLM campground on the other side of the mountains since the rangers were actively discouraging camping here, but we'd definitely return to the area for the scener... more

“Sketchy neighborhood, nice site”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here one night on our way to White Sands NM. The site itself was fine - we were really just there to sleep so didn't do any exploring. The downside was the road getting to the site. We were arriving about 9pm, and apparently Baylor Canyon Rd is where all the local kids hang out. We passed about 4 groups who were all just ... more

“Beautiful location! ”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2017

This was such a great spot that we didn't want to leave! We stayed 8 nights. It is dispersed spots along a road to a trailhead, and we had 1-3 neighbors at a time, but the spots are spread far apart. There was a little noise from Dripping Springs Road, but it didn't bother us. Our favorite part was the spots had fire pits made ... more

“Clean, quiet, and an excellent view”

Reviewed Mar 09, 2017

Overall Rating

For a free camping experience. I'd recommend this place If you're in NM. It's clean, it's neat and it's got a fantastic view as the sun goes down. There aren't too many sites but I spoke to a ranger who said as long as I'm parked slightly off road he's fine with where I go.

“Nice free BLM spot and easy access for a night.”

Reviewed Mar 02, 2017

Overall Rating

We camped here in late February and just needed a campsite for a night as we headed east on I-10 and came across this BLM site. It's just a short jaunt from Interstate 10 and very easy access. We arrived after dark, so we did have a bit of trouble spotting the turn for the BLM site at first and had to do a very tight turn-around at t... more
