New Mexico is a diverse land of contrasts; of canyons, deserts, mesas, high mountains, rivers, lakes and glorious sunsets. With five national forests and 34 state parks, there is no shortage of beautiful campgrounds.
"The Best in Tent Camping: New Mexico" guides campers to 50 of the most scenic sites in the state. Each campground has been rated on six criteria: beauty, privacy, spaciousness, quiet, security and cleanliness. In addition, campground profiles include vital statistics about each location (fees, restrictions, operating season, amenities, contact information, driving directions and reservation information, to name a few) that help campers plan the perfect trip without unwanted surprises. GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) users will also appreciate that each campground's precise latitude and longitude waypoints are included.
Tent campers will also enjoy a detailed map of each campground included in the site profile. Making reservations online or blindly over the phone can put a camper miles from the restroom, stranded with no shade, or in the middle of a busy campground trail. Maps will help campers avoid those pitfalls, and wherever possible the author has even recommended specific campsites for maximum privacy, spaciousness, or beauty.
From geological wonders such as Tent Rocks, Valley of Fires, and Carlsbad Caverns to Native American tribal lands to crumbling ghost towns, "The Best in Tent Camping: New Mexico" guides campers to the best spots to experience the rich bounty of nature and history that the state offers.
The book is well organized and full of useful information and a pleasure to read.
