This is our home, but there is plenty of space and acres of nothing around us.

However, we have panoramic views of mountains, sunsets and sunrise. Minimal light pollution for stargazing. We are 22 miles from Albuquerque which is perfect for stargazing.

Tierra del RavenTree

1 site 路 RV, Tent18 acres 路 Placitas, NM
Ultimate peace and privacy. Nestled in juniper-wooded hills with sweeping views. Close to Albuquerque (20 minutes) and Santa Fe (40 minutes) but feels like a secluded retreat. Most people have no problem finding my place by entering my address in their GPS. However, I have had 2 HipCampers report their GPS directed them to a road called Camino de las Brisas or Las Brisas Loop. Turning here will lead you to a steep, dangerous road where it will be very difficult to turn around if you're in an RV and impossible with a trailer. Continue on Camino de Las Huertas to Senda Osa Vieja. It's marked with a street sign, a stone monument with brass plate. There's also a blue "private road" sign with a dragon. This land was purchased in 1956 by my archeologist parents because of the ancient pueblo site (dating from 1000 A.D.) and pit house sites (dating from 800 A.D.) Until the mega drought began to have a serious impact on the land, a stream ran through year round. Across the valley from this property, and within view of the campsite, is the site of a Spanish Colonial village, San Jose de las Huertas. It dates from the 1700s and is now owned by the Archeological Conservancy. This area is rich in history both Native American and Spanish. Learn more about this land: Located in the high desert 20 minutes from Albuquerque and 40 minutes from Santa Fe. Views of Sandia mountains, and聽near historic archeological sites. Within a 10 minute drive are popular mountain biking trails. Petroglyphs are a 20 minute, moderately strenuous hike from property. Very peaceful, quiet and safe. Read all the Rules and Safety info before booking so you understand exactly what facilities are and are not available, particularly if you in an RV or trailer.

This quiet and tranquil setting is specifically designed for the RV traveler seeking a safe and peaceful city location for their Albuquerque stay. This site offers a respite from the congestion found in other parts of the city. The large fenced and gated one acre lot and unobstructed views provide a peaceful semi-rural setting that is difficult to find so close to town. You won't hear the constant buzz of passing cars in this area, just a bit of nature and plenty of peace and quiet. You'll also find less light pollution in this part of the city so after the sun goes down you can enjoy a great view of the stars and city lights. This is also a great location to watch the early morning hot air balloons take flight, or if you are looking for that perfect spot to take your daily run/bike ride without dodging cars or worrying about your safety.

The best camping near Petroglyph National Monument guide

Overview

About

The desert Southwest is home to a rich history filled with scenic landscapes and natural wonders. The Petroglyph National Monument is one such wonder, dedicated to preserving ancient drawings created by the region鈥檚 first inhabitants. Rockhounds and hiking enthusiasts alike will enjoy exploring the park's long-extinct volcanoes and basalt boulders.

When visiting the monument, your first stop should be Las Imagines Visitor Center. Here you'll find park brochures, a gift shop, restrooms and a place to fill your water bottle. Remember, this is a desert so make sure you bring plenty of water and sunscreen for your adventure.

With no petroglyph viewing trails at the visitor center, you'll have to drive, bike or walk to the nearest trailhead. It's anywhere from one mile to 6.5 miles away, depending on your starting point. Boca Negra Canyon has 3 short trails, with both Macaw and Mesa Point being easy hikes. For a little more intensity, check out Rinconada Canyon, with 300 petroglyphs along a 2.2-mile loop. If you're bringing Fido along, you'll want to drive out to Piedras Marcadas, where you'll find 300 petroglyphs and a dog-friendly 1.5-mile trail. Depending on your itinerary, you could spend a full day here hiking all the trails and exploring the volcanoes. To make the most of your visit, why not stay at a nearby campground? Hipcamp can help you find tent, RV and glamping sites!
