“Easy, free primitive campground-style camping”

Reviewed Feb 27, 2019

Overall Rating

This area has been developed into probably a dozen designated camping sites with post-and-cable fencing blocking off other areas. It's a nice road, well-graded, with easy access, but not the more dispersed-style camping that is described in many earlier reviews. Though we didn't plan to stay in the campground proper, we were hoping to ... more

“Beautiful views and quiet nights.”

Reviewed Jan 23, 2019

Overall Rating

As previous reviews have said, the camping area is easily accessed directly off a paved highway. The road into the main camping area has been graded and recently covered in fresh gravel. The roadway is wide enough for big rigs (ours is 65 feet when hitched up) and there is a large area to turn around at the trailhead, as long as there ... more

“Beautiful isolated desert camping not far from the city. ”

Reviewed Dec 28, 2018

Overall Rating

We are so grateful to have stumbled across this gem. The access road is well marked with a sign (you can’t miss it) and there are a few camping spots along the road that fit mid sized rigs. Past a certain point, the road becomes accessible only to 4 wheel drive vehicles. We camped on the last spot before the road narrowed, offering ... more

“Great views, recently upgraded”

Reviewed Nov 25, 2018

Overall Rating

As the last couple of reviewers have mentioned, they’ve added in post and cable fencing along the roadway with a few designated camp spots, so a lot of the older pictures aren’t really relevant any more. Fresh gravel makes the drive in super easy. The sites are relatively close together (all are within about a half mile stretch), but w... more

360 View of the Organ Mts! Just beautiful sunrise to sunset! New gravel makes dry camping so easy! Thanks to John G’s review we came here! Be sure to hike to dripping springs via the BLM office if you visit. Come before sunset to easily find your spot.

Magnificent views of Organ Mountains and valley of Las Cruces. Freshly graveled roads. 3 turnout sites and one large site at end of road. Very Quiet. 10 minutes to Las Cruces. Cable fence to keep cattle out, only saw 4 cattle in 5 days, and not very close. Would be happy to return here again and again. Met 2 BLM staff and they were ver... more

“Quiet with a view”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2018

Overall Rating

Drove down past all the easy gravel pullouts to a more remote spot. Recommend high clearance vehicle if doing the same as it is very uneven, Rocky and eroded. There are a few more pit areas and we picked one at GPS 32.3183679, -106.6232904. Spot was great for views. Some hypodermic needles found neaby but no other trash. It was ... more

“Very nice”

Reviewed Oct 07, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a very nice, clean, and picturesque site. Fairly quiet, but there is a road nearby (dripping springs road) and some other traffic on the campsite road. Overall a great spot with nice mountain views.

“One of our favourite spots ever!”

Reviewed Aug 08, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here in early February, and it was pretty busy. We ended up staying in the parking area, but it still felt relatively private. We were planning to wait for another spot to open up, but the service was good and there was a fire pit, so we decided to stay. It was easy to access (paved road most of the way there) and had beaut... more

“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
