Both the eastbound and westbound sites are picnic areas and allow you to be a fair bit off of the road. Westbound is more level so we stayed there. Very quiet, super dark. There are no restrooms or trash cans so there is a bit of trash of all types strewn about the location which is too bad.
We were just passing through and I had no idea what VLA was until I looked it up online. It is the Very Large Array radio telescope and would be well worth a visit. Visitor center currently closed due to Covid so be sure to check.
