Nice for a night out along. Awesome sunset. I would bring earplugs for the barking dogs and train. These are her neighbors dogs and far enough away that with earplugs you should be fine so nothing she can really do, but just a heads up if you need absolute silence for anything. Very helpful host, though! Answered any and all questions and did not hesitate to help.

Very good communication w host beforehand. Easy and quick to access off the highway, and no problem finding the spot if you follow the good directions. A no-frills gravel RV lot for my pickup w bed tent. On my weeknight, I had the lot to myself. Nice desert view. Several neighbor houses in the area, none close. A few barking dogs, but not at night.

A good place to get off the road and relax for a few days. Vannetta was quick to respond, informative and friendly.

We were going to stay at a RV park with 4 stars in Socorro but when we pulled up it was a tiny little parking lot. I went on HC found Perry Farms Desert Camp and got a response fairly quick. It was dark out by the time we arrived so a little difficult to find. Fortunately we had a separate vehicle to scout out the spot. I would like warn others of the 2 dogs that ran out into the road after my vehicle you just have to drive slow. Once we found it we set up ate dinner and slept. It was nice to see the cows in the morning that we had heard when we pulled in. I would recommend a little weed whacking but other than that a perfect spot with plenty of peace and quiet.

Vanessa was friendly through texting us to ensure we had a good night, but the directions/address were unclear for the location. The area was not visibly designated for camping so we actually ended up on someone else’s property for the night and didn’t realize until the morning when the property owner approached us
