New Mexico is a beautiful and varied state. This campsite allows you to see 3 amazingly different locations over two days. To the East is Carlsbad Caverns, one of the most engrossing caves in the world. To the West lies White Sands National Monument, a unique and enormous, blindingly-white patch of gypsum dunes (rent a sled there!).
Between the desert land of Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands, this site high up in the Lincoln National Forest offers a green oasis. The road to the site has large rhythmic bumps, so drive carefully, as always.
