Latest Check-Ins

There are a lot of options for camping along the lakeshore. The road is rutted and bumpy, but we made it fine in a 2WD sprinter. I’d be cautious if rain is in the forecast. Yes there is a lot of garbage, but it is New Mexico after all. Take a bag with you when you leave. No amenities. Intermittent cell service on ATT. Free!

Not great. So trashed. Stinks, literally. Was ok for the night, but if you have time to spare, I'd suggest finding a different spot. Don't take the road at night, otherwise you rish losing a tire. We arrived 6pm, there was one car with people walking around with a metal detector, and another van with a crazy drugged up lady. Both left, we were the only ones there for the night.

We took road 31 off of hwy 285 and road 31A was totally flooded about halfway to this marked spot, but there was a nice little turnout just before the water that worked well for a night. Maybe taking Skyward rd off 285 would get you here, but we didn't try.

Couldn’t get to this spot because the lake had flooded the road.
