What a wonderful place to come to at he end of a long days drive. Beautiful, quiet and not crowded.

Enjoyed It
This is the third or fourth time we have stayed here, from a tent all the way to our current 30 ft. TT, and once again we have really enjoyed our stay. Even though there have been some budget cuts, they have done some up grades to the sites and vault toilets. Our favorite NM BLM campground so far. Did go to Pie Town 23 miles down the road for pie.

Have to agree with the other comments. Looks like they are starting to upgrade a few sites with electrical hook-ups. 7000’ altitude! Frosty nights!

Best BLM campground ever!
Great campground. 22 sites, half are pull-through, most are pretty level and graveled. The CG has been recently graded; backed my rig in and it was already level. The bathrooms are put toilets but are very clean and, as of now, do not smell! Water spigots and bear-resistant trash cans are placed around the campground. The dirt road into the campground is well-maintained and no problem to drive. The sites are varied in size; most should accommodate a 5th wheel or class A. The entire place is super clean. There are also a couple of short (up to 3 miles) hiking trails that start between sites 6 and 8. I usually boondock but for $5 this place can't be beat.

We stayed here in mid-February and were the only ones here. Really nice scenic campground and perfect for boondockers. The facilities were winterized but there were vault toilets. Route 60 has stunning scenery but vast and uninhabited. Be sure to fuel up beforehand!

Great For Boondocking
Nice campground for smaller rigs, water but no electric, nice bathrooms and group area, camp hosts Carlos and Theresa are amazing! All sites have picnic table and fire ring, some tables are covered. We boondocked here for a week, would love to stay longer but 7 days is max. Just FYI, no dump stations within 50 miles, but there is the Eagle Guest Ranch in Datil which has a store, restaurant, gas, motel and RV park.

Gem Of A Campground
Boondocked four nights here in a 32' TT. No hookups. Very clean vault toilets. Some pull-thrus and back ins. Off the highway down a dirt road, but very navigitable. The hosts, Carlos & Theresa, were extremely hospitable. Not only are they on site to help you, but they check on the whole campground a few times during the day. Extremely Quiet here... and billions of stars! Will stay here again if in the area.

Nice Campground!
Stopped here traveling from Winslow to Cloudcroft in early October. Beautiful weather, very clean, with water and internet at the small shed at the entrance. We were greated by Teresa, and Carlos the camp hosts. They were very friendly, and accommodating! We have a 30 foot class A towing a small vehicle, no issues navigating the site road. Several pull through sites, little tough to level but made it ok. Great BLM site!
