With more than four million campground reviews, photos, and tips, and over 40,000 U.S. campgrounds, camping app The Dyrt has released its list of the Top 10 Best Places to Camp in the U.S.
As per The Dyrt, the ranking used a combination of ratings, number of reviews, and quality of reviews.
Each campground was named No. 1 or 2 in their regions earlier this year. They also represent the top 0.00025 percent of campgrounds on The Dyrt.
Las Cruces (New Mexico) Sierra Vista campground is number one on the list. With breathtaking views and the convenience of its proximity to Las Cruces, this campground offers natural beauty without sacrificing accessibility.
Despite being a free, dispersed campground, Sierra Vista has some of the comforts found at paid campgrounds (like noise restrictions and frequent check-ins by BLM Rangers).
Operated by the Bureau of Land Management, Sierra Vista is located off Drippings Springs Road, just west of the Dripping Springs Natural Area.
Sierra Vista offers trailheads, and White Sands National Park is just a short drive away.
According to reviews, Sierra Vista offers breathtaking mountain views.
“We really loved this place. Beautiful setting, hiking trails all over, there are people around but you feel like you have your own space, and of course free. … Good place to stay if you are planning on going to White Sands.” — Laura M.
“The site was cleared and ready for a tent. Las Cruces city glow is visible in the distance at night. The stars were out. We heard coyotes at some point in the night. The morning brought a brilliant sunrise over the mountains in the distance.” — Spencer R.
