Primitive campsites offer nice views, solitude, and a small flat space to set up camp next to your vehicle. No shade, toilets, or other amenities are provided. Sierra Blanca has mild winters and very hot summers but the desert can get cold at night. The weather is generally sunny but come prepared for changing conditions. This is not a commercial campground. Wildlife include rabbits and hares, javelina, woodcock, teal, sandhill crane, quail, pronghorn, mule deer, duck, dove, rattlesnake, rails, gallinules, and moorehens, toads and a variety of lizards.

Located just 8 miles to the West of Sierra Blanca, 3 miles from the Border Patrol check station, and 80 miles South/South-East of El Paso astride Interstate 10. This property is truly a part of the "OLD WEST". Sierra Blanca was named after Sierra Blanca Mountain, just North-West of town. The town came into existence when competing railroads for a second (Southern) transcontinental railroad line came within 10 miles of one another in 1881. Jay Gould, famous railroad magnate and robber baron, drove a silver spike commemorating the event on Dec. 15th 1881. The town sprang up around that spot, although the population didn't reach 350 people until 1914. It is best described as grazing land that is flat to slightly sloping terrain covered with desert sagebrush and grasses.

NOT SUITABLE FOR LARGE RV’s, especially towing a car. The road in was horrible and damaged the towed car. There is no place to turn around. We unloaded the car, disconnected the tow dolly, and with much effort got the RV turned around. No way to get off the “road” so camped on it. On the positive side, the location was convenient to I 10 and had good cell service.

The site was great if you have a tent. Be aware, this is a straight out (narrow) dirt road with no turnaround to speak of. If you have a travel trailer or RV probably should avoid unless they clear a turnaround for you, the road out is quite rough and if your trailer does not have high clearance, it will get stuck. It was good, and close to the highway not far enough.

Nice first experience for kids.

I liked the fact it’s close to the highway, but not too close. Good primitive site. Could use some maintenance though…but otherwise a good experience to get ourselves started in camping totally out in the sticks. Thanks Annie! Take care.
