Description

Free camping all along this road - 127A. The first site on the left is the only one that is big rig friendly with large turnaround. Our 2wd Transit van camper did fine about 5 minutes up the road over rocky sections to a mellow and private site. No water in early June - drought season, so check in at the Cedar Creek Ranger Station for any wildfire/closure info.

Great spot near Ruidoso for a night or two. First few spots are easily accessible in 2WD Sprinter. Sites are just off dirt road along creek with fire pits. Spotty 1 bar T-Mobile service.

I camped at a site fairly early along this road. There were wild horses nearby. The road was quiet and peaceful. I’d definitely stay here again.

Stayed here one night and had a lovely snowy evening. The FS road in is gravel and not plowed, but we made it in no problem in our 2WD sprinter. No amenities and no cell service on ATT.

Report Check-In

OK but not great. Spots vary in size and are not very level.

Some sites have small steep ditches, rocks and trees to navigate around to get into.

I managed to get a Skoolie and trailer in and out and saw larger rigs who also managed.

The road is decent but has quite a fair amount of traffic.

Sites are off the road that some people drive way to fast.

Not sure where they are going in such a hurry!?

I saw the same vehicles coming and going many times during my stay.

Positives include being close to Ruidoso, the library (cheap books for sale) and Alto lake.

Nice, quiet, primitive camping along a stream. Lots of water flowing right now.
