Our campsite provides amazing sunset & sunrise views of Whiteface Mountain to the east, Bosque Peak to the Northeast and the Sierra Ladrones Wilderness Study Area/Mountains out to the West.

Verizon cell phone tower is located near the intersection of Highway 60 and Monrovia Street and provides for full LTE service.

The site is located about half a mile off of Highway 60, but tucked far enough away where you will not hear any highway traffic. The closest nearby land occupants are about 2 miles away and more in other directions. Privacy will not be a concern! We are slowly in the works of adding a firepit area and some pet area fencing.

The perimeter is marked with green metal stakes with red tops.

About Socorro County: Mostly rural, Socorro County sits in the central part of New Mexico and consists of a population of roughly 18,000. While home to very few people, the county does possess many great parks and natural wonders such as the awe inspiring Manazano Mountains and Abo Canyon. Small towns in this county include Escondida, Socorro and Magdalena, meaning a supply run to the nearest Wal-Mart is never too far away.
