What A Cool Find
Came in planning to stay 3 nights. Enjoyed it so much we added 4 more nights. Loved the trail over the lava. Walked on the lava. Fun to put ourselves back when this was forming to try to picture what was going on then. To die for sunsets and sun rises. An hour drive to White Sands, which was cool, but 2-3 hours there is more than enough time. Half price with senior pass. $18 w/e, $12 w, $7 tents. Very windy! 4-5 bars of AT&T.

Great Winter Campground
Surprisingly nice campground! Trail was interesting, views enjoyable, friendly campers. Bath house was very nice and clean! This is on my list to come back to!

Stayed one night. Left payment at the kiosk. No host since it was during the week. We were kind of sad since it turned out to be a great geological interest, but the self guided trail has a lot of information. First sites along the ridge have electric and water. Great view of the valley from every angle and the mountain ranges in the distance. One of our favorite stops. Didn’t realize how big the lava flow was until we got here and looked around. Just a few others were camping. Would definitely stop again.

One night stay with travel trailer. Paved Site had electric, water, picnic table and trash can. Also on site is restrooms/showers and dump station. Dump station has 15.00 fee. Great campground if you like geology and history.

I came here during the federal govt shutdown. The camp host was letting people camp. The bath and visitors center were closed. Everything else was clean. Large paved sites.
Fantastic place if you're into geology and a cool little park. Very unique, great .90 mile trail through the lava flow. Highly recommend for 2-3 nites.
The town of Carrizozo is dismal however. No grocery store or laundromat open when I was here.

Very scenic camp sites with vistas of lava flow. Clean and paved driveways with sun shad over tables.
Nicely spaced apart.
We liked it so much we stayed extra nights.
