Boondocking in New Mexico!

Boondocking in New Mexico is popular due to the abundance of federal recreation lands with six different national forest and a national grassland. There is also plenty of BLM land to go around, including a couple of national wildlife refuges that offer camping. Many of the indian casinos will allow multiple-night parking.
