Like this place. 20 sites just above main highway but quiet. Near everything. Full hookups $32/night. Helpful staff. Shower is hot. $1 for 10 minutes. Clean.

We stopped at Holloman Lake (in route to White Sands NP) to conduct a recon mission for a future trip. Audubon.org identifies the site as an important bird area in the state and region (https://www.audubon.org/important-bird-areas/holloman-lakes). The gate at the head of the access road was OPEN so we drove up the 1/4-mile dirt road to the Lake. We already missed the migration so there weren't birds to speak of, but there was water in the lake and plenty of room for vehicles to space themselves out if needed.

All as mentioned below, what a beautiful place!
Very quiet in the nature. Campsite is perfect, with good donkey shower and 2 sitting toilets.
Restaurant and shop is nice.
We went milking the cows with our children, at a local farmer.

About theft. Didn't feel unsafe at all. There is a locker at the reception.

Quiet and safe place to pass one night or two. Not so level but still possible to have a good night.

Basic parking lot along highway 1. We stayed despite all the No Overnight Parking signs and didn’t have an issue. At the time of this post, all bathrooms were closed for the winter.

Secluded beach camping in the McFadden National Wild life Preserve. Free Camping rite on the beach just a few feet from the water. No crowds had this 4 mile section of beach all to myself. No amenities it’s boondock beach camping like most of the beach camping on Texas coast. If you like seclusion with very few passers by and beautiful scenic sky’s, warm water, surf, wildlife, and fresh ocean air this is the place. Nearest town is 15 miles. This is a 17 mile stretch of secluded beach. Soft white sand, lots of bird species like Brown Pelicans and white Herring, saw some dolphins, and shrimp boats cruising by. 4x4 not required but recommended during certain times of the year. Most of the sand you drive on is hard packed depending on tide level. Check tide chart before heading out. Bring your fishing pole and water toys. Perfect temps in October. Cell signal is 2-3 bars w/ Verizon.

Large parking reserved for clients. But it looks like the hotel is only open in summer, making it a nice spot rest of the year. We were there in October 2021. There are otherwise official, free parking slots in the lane adjacent to the parking (other side of the hotel.)

The directions actually took me to a Walmart, not a kwik trip. There wasn’t even one of those in town, not sure if there used to be or not. The Walmart was fine but the back side is sloped so you have to park more towards the front of the lot to sleep flat. Also there’s construction in the parking lot so that was very noisy at 5am.

Stayed here the last night of the season. It was very nice and so were the showers. Some noisy neighbors but nothing too bad. This was my second time here and I’d definitely come back.

I actually really liked this spot. I parked in the furthest spot from the bridge and slept with my sound machine on and didn’t hear the traffic at all. Bathroom is super clean and was open 24hr from what I could tell. Nice walk by the river, too.

Nice hotel. On north end of city. Easy access from roads bypassing major Durango traffic but still easy access to the heart of the city. Really like because they have secure parking

Warning; half the parking lot is closed and fenced in, from mid-october 2021 until spring 2022. They are doing major landscaping work along the river. You can still park here, but be ready to get awaken by loud machinery at 6am. Finding a spot is also difficult and those available are limited in size (vans and minivans ok). At night time lots of traffic from local cars looking for a spot then doing a tight u-turn at the end of the row.

It’s a nice spot, almost flat where you can camp. I’m not sure if during summer cows are here
Quite and clean.
Anyway, best moment to see the area is mid October, wonderful colours!

Like the others have said, this is a great location close to downtown and a number of parks. Take your bicycle and explore all the waterfront. One thing though, this parking lot appears to be used by many of the people that work the shops down the street. Like most cities, parking is a premium on the weekdays. Unfortunately some class C’s take two parking spaces and you can see the people that live here circling the lot and they will run short of patience.

Nice library in the cute town of Crestview. Wifi is ok in the parking lot but much better inside. Picnick tables and lots of open space to walk dogs outside

Lots of options along the road but it’s pretty popular with hikers. We went up on a spur road and found a nice clean site.

It says 3 bars of Verizon, but it is indeed very slow. Didn’t put up Booster to see if it got better.
If you’re a camper van, go to the autos (right side) and there are longer spots available so you don’t have to be by the trucks and RV’s (left side). This side is also further from the highway with pretty views of the mountains.

Agree with everything, thank you so much! Would just like to add that the winds have been mighty. Got a break around sunset but they picked up a lot during the night and then again after sunrise. Powerful. I went for the views, but might try for more cover if I get any hint of gusts next time.

Very nice site near creek. Picked up lots of garbage from weekenders and had a bear encounter. Bear is prob you used to checking out the spot and rifling through all the soda cans and other food trash people leave. He was disappointed with our cleaning and left in a hurry after we made some noise. Great camp spot, just be aware, bear safe with your food and ready to make some noise. RTT suggested Ass posed to ground tent.
