This was a great campground with very clean showers and main office with good staff. However the reason we came was to see the ranch and it was closed as well as the main trail in to Dog Canyon. I would have rated higher except for these factors.

This is a very nice, clean, state park that sits up on the side of a mountain and looks down toward the highway from Las Cruces into Alamogordo, New Mexico. Out the back of the park is a "moderately hard" hiking trail going up the side of the mountain to some old ranch structures - line shack, etc. The hike is worth taking for the incredible view of the valley below. There is an old ranch house and other structures to visit down below in the park itself. Alamogordo is just a few minutes away. We were there in the fall and the cottonwood trees in Alamogordo had just turned their gorgeous golden color. That alone is a site to behold and experience. We highly recommend this park if you like hiking and ranch history.

Oliver Lee is a nice place that is located at the base of the mountain and is elevated,sites are large with table and fire ring. Sites range from having water and electrical to basic. It a dersert park and there are no shade trees.Good restrooms and showers are inculed with the price of camping.We picked this park mainly because of it location outside of the city of Alamogoro. We took in Whitesands National Park while,its a 22 mile drive from Oliver Lee.Picture #1 is of our site at Oliver Lee,the view was priceless.Picture #2 sunset. Picture #3 Whitesands drive. Picture #4 Interdune boardwalk,it is wheel chair friendly.Whitesands is one of those must see places.
