A site called thedyrt.com provides information about all varieties of camping sites across the U.S. But they also use a decade’s worth of user reviews, to generate top-10 spots in the country’s various regions, with three places in New Mexico landing on the 2022 Best Places To Camp in the South/Southwest.
The winners are:
- Sierra Vista, a dispersed camping site near Las Cruces within the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument
- The Rio Chama Campground near the confluence with Rio Gallina near Abiquiú Lake (currently closed);
- The private Gila Hot Springs Campground near the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument north of Silver City.
