New mexico’s finest
Although you need to traverse some dirt roads to get to frank’s spot, he was kind enough to come out and guide us when we got lost. In addition, the outhouse looks new and is well kept which was great.
And finally, the view of the stars and wildlife made our stay terrific. We would recommend this spot!
Frank was very easy to communicate with and answered every question I had. He also met us at the main road to ensure we found the site with not issue. The site itself is in a really isolated area about a mile or so away from the highway. It is very well kept with a fire ring and a path to the outhouse. My fiancé especially loved how clean the outhouse was, it almost felt brand new. We only ended us staying here a night, but this site will be at the top of our list anytime we are in the area
Frank was very helpful. He drove out to the end of the road to escort us to the campsite since it’s a bit of the main highway. It was a very clean campsite with a new outhouse and clearly marked paths. Highly recommend!
