One thing to keep in mind about New Mexico is that most of it is the same elevation as Denver! And when you’re camping spot is in the mountains….it’s quite a bit colder.
Like many states, New Mexico has a lot of public land and you can find inexpensive camping through the Dept of Wildlife, BLM (Bureau of Land Management) as well as the state park system.
And just so you know….New Mexico is part of the United States.
Here’s a list of the areas and campgrounds I touch on in this video.
Maxwell Wildlife Refuge
Storrie Lake State Park
Ft Sumner- Valley View RV Park
Ft. Sumner State Park
Black Canyon Campground
San Juan Fairgrounds…McKee Campground
WaterFlow…basically random spot in someone’s backyard. Odd but I was grateful.
They only took cash…had to go to the ATM and come back.
Gallup- Walmart is where I stayed while I was there
El Malapais Conservation Area…this is the BLM one. Camping free there.
VLA telescopes- https://public.nrao.edu/visit/very-large-array/ They give tours!
San Antonio Riverine Park
Truth or Consequences – Elephant Butte State Park
And South Monticello State Park
Faywood Hot Springs
Pancho Villa State Park
Valley of Fire – a BLM campground
White Sands..no camping but very cool
Here are past videos where I have explored the state:
The Road to Chaco Canyon
Americans Ancient People
Breaking Bad and other things to do in Albuquerque
El Malpais Conservation Area
And after doing this video I realize there are a lot of places I thought I had made a video about….but hadn’t.
That gives me something to think about, ha.
Thanks for watching.
