Oliver Lee park was a great week long stop. Great sunsets and sunrises.

Go towards White Sands from Alamogordo Go past the second gate to Holloman. Watch Closely on the right and you will see a gate with a small sign saying something about a wild life refuge.

Oliver Lee is tight, cramped in many spots.

We like Oliver Lee. Most of the sites are first come-first serve.. Excellent views and away from the main road . About half of the sites are dry camping, the others have electric and water. There arn't that many sites that can accommodate a large (greater than 30-35 ft) MH.. We were able to wedge our 35ft MH onto Site #7.

OTHER PLACES - Theres a couple places on the north side of town between Alamogordo and Tularosa. A new one that we haven't stayed at, Boot Hill. Its on the east side of the road.

ALSO - If you really want to get away from it all.. Valley of Fires BLM just west of Carrizozo. About 45 miles north of Alamogordo. They have 20 hookup sites (electric and water). When we went through there in late Jan, there were only one or two people in there. This place is desolate...

PHOTOS

1 - Road going up to Oliver Lee - the tiny white dots in the center of the photo are RVs, and trailers at the park..

2 - Our site and the view. Our MH is in the center of the photo.

3 and 4 - We were parked facing southwest. Sunrise looking out our windshield. The sun/shadows coming across the desert.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

We prefer to use the Base campground but we did find a nice campground near Cloudcroft in the mountains but don't remember the name. A short drive to town. We have not stayed at the public campground near town it really didn't look that great.

We stayed in SHADY GROVE RV PARK. Inexpensive $21/night and used as a brief base to see White Sands National Monument and view the Billy the Kid Museum and Court House in Lincoln, NM. We start the Billy the Kid tour at the Visitor Center in Lincoln. They have interesting artifacts and an informative video of the history of Lincoln and Billy the Kid. It was about an hours drive and gave us interesting perspective of the physical area where Billy the Kid traveled.

Have lunch at the The Dolan House in Lincoln.

recommendations for Alamogordo camping

While it was just an overnight stop for us, we really liked Boot Hill RV Park. Long, level pull trough, good utilities, friendly service. Great restrooms and showers.

We stayed there for a few nights a couple years ago. I agree with your assessment. Plus they will let you borrow disks to slide down the sand dunes. That was really fun !

Thank you all ! We usually stay at the commercial parks, but one of these days maybe I can talk sweetie pie into trying a little boon docking.
