Cheap affordable no frills place to camp. Close proximity to other places in town but felt secluded enough. Home on the property, but still felt private. Ed, the host was easy to communicate with and responded to phone calls and texts quickly. Would camp here again.

A really pretty lot in the city of las Cruces. There were trees to give you privacy from the neighbors and the house, and it was a cool space and I felt really safe as a young woman solo adventurer:)
Needed somewhere last minute to park my Jeep on my road trip, and this was so easy and nice. It’s close to civilization so it was easy stopping at a gas station nearby to fill up and get snacks:)
Got in at 9pm and just drove right to the spot I reserved on hipcamp:) They allow bonfires so I made a little fire in a fire pit on the spot I reserved with some firewood I picked up at a gas station nearby and chilled a little warming my toes by the fire wrapped in my quilt before curling up in the back of my Jeep for the night:)
Then when the sun rose I said goodbye to this safe sanctuary, stopped at Sportsman’s Warehouse which was nearby to grab a couple camping things, then off to white sands national monument where I had a magical experience back country camping, it was about an hour away and a really pretty/easy drive:)
Ed was awesome responding to texts when I had questions—thank you so much for having me on your land, I’m really grateful :)

Safe place to park and bonfire in las Cruces :) I got the firewood from a nearby gas station and I keep lighter fluid with me so it was easy to make a fire—the layout of the lot is cool and it was a perfect safe spot to sleep in my Jeep on my adventure :)

This is private property with horse stalls, a house with renters and a big shed. Quiet area with a nice view of the mountains. We were able to access with our 32 ft 5th wheel. Sites are sand and aren't marked. Water was poor, unable to fill our fresh water tank. 120 V electric near horse stalls. We experienced some miscommunication between owner & tenant and were locked in when the tenant left. Host was out of town and very apologetic and agreed to make things right.
