Nice mountain views!
We enjoyed our stay very much. Easy access, mostly total privacy (there is a trailer about 150-200 yds away), great views of the Sacramento mountains - especially picturesque in late afternoon. Alamogordo not far should the need arise, about half an hour to White Sands. Sound travels easily out there, so you'll hear the low noise of the highway, trains going by, and occasionally the generator from neighboring land, but these did not disturb greatly.

He had our campsite all ready to go. Lights around the site, extra wood for campfire and nice fire pit. Beautiful night to watch the sun set. Regan helped me with directions too.

Cool Little Spot!
We loved our stay here! It was a very cool place, relaxing and quiet. But still not too far from a store if we needed supplies! Great views especially for sunrise and sunset- would recommend to anyone! Thanks for the stay!
