One of our favorite parks in New Mexico! Spent 3 nights as always when traveling through this area. Hiking the Dogwood Canyon trail is beautiful and well worth the trip. Park is near Alamogordo so we can provision and eat out.

Place is packed through out March. March 2nd I called ranger and there was an opening at 8:30 am and arrived at 12pm it was gone. I saw 3 sites with nothing but a car so you need to know someone local to sit on a site if your not local. Nice scenery but sites are small(35' or less) also uneven. All the sites I saw campers were propped up on a corner or 2.

Awesome...awesome...this park is top notch. Bath and restroom facilities are super clean. Would definitely recommend. Most rv spits are nice and level. Easy to get to from the highway.

We had a beautiful view of the mountains and a nice big site. Paid $14 to have electric and water. The bathhouse was nice and clean- plenty of hot water for a shower.

Arrived 4/28/19 w/o reservations. Most sites are walk-up. Snagged #10 and stuffed our 38' DP in a quasi parallel park with our nose facing directly into the canyon NE uphill into the mountains.
Sights are on a hillside so levelling can be a challenge, but with our spot and positioning we're good L/R, but needed to elevate the back a bit.
VZ 4G 3-4 bars. Very clean bathrooms/shower.

GREAT NM STATE PARK
Like all NM parks, you cant beat the rate. $14 for E&W non-reserved, $4 reservation fees.
Well designed, landscaped and maintained park. Great views, recommend the Dog Canyon trail to moderate/experienced hikers, its not a stroll for little kids.
Staff are polite and helpful. Great location for White Sands, probably 25 minutes. Not 35 like your GPS will say.

Rich NM History
Great location, interesting history of the ranch & surrounding area. Very close to “White Sands” and close enough to city* for supplies. Great Tex-Mex dining*. Restrooms very modern & clean. Nice level RV spots.
If we ever come again we will come here 1st, then head North. Got pretty warm for May. (Very dry desert climate.)
