Box Canyon is our newest campsite.  Close to the most extreme vertical hiking at Los Alamos Ranch.  Bring some binos for some of the best wildlife watching too.  The sandy area is friendly for comfy tent set up and equipped with a weber grill and fire ring for cold desert nights.  The surrounding brush provides plenty of driftwood to gather.  You will feel secluded and hidden and have a front row seat to the sunrises and sunsets.  You are a half mile drive to indoor hot showers and toilets at our ranch guest house, stocked with fresh towels, shampoos, conditioner and body wash.    Wifi is available near the outdoor pavilion next door to the guesthouse.

I brought in a small group on our way to the State Park.
What a GEM of a camping spot. Stela and Vince were fantastic hosts, going out of their way to make our stay fun, pleasant and comfortable! Vince allowed us to explore their land in our vehicles to find a perfect camp spot on a windy night. We ended up back in the main area with protection from the strong wind.
2 days later, when the weather became colder with 20 mph winds, we contacted Stela and she opened up her gate and property to us, even though she had just booked a large group. Not only that, she brought out the new super comfy blankets for us to enjoy and use.
All I can say is after 25 years in the hospitality industry, it's nice to see people with the passion for guest service and comfort still out there making a difference.
Go Visit Los Alamos, you'll come back with a TON of good memories.

Box Canyon View's Camp site was very nice and secluded! We felt comfortable and safe in this location. site offered Fire ring and plenty of space to spread out. Spent the evening watching the Stars and even saw a couple "Falling Stars". Site is ideal for "Drive up Back Country camping" however the use of hot showers nearby at main property is extremely nice! We did not get a chance to use it but the Common areas/ outdoor kitchen with wifi for anyone needing to connect is a nice feature! We spent our morning taking a nice walk up to the Box Canyon. Sunset and Sunrise were perfect!
