Valley of Fires Recreation Area
P. O. Box 871
New Mexico 88301


This park sits along side what is considered the youngest lava flow in the continental US (125 square miles), and although it may appear desolate from a distance, an amazing amount of plant, animal, and bird life typical of the Chihuahuan desert flourish here. An interpretive trail starts at the group shelter and leads visitors through the lava flow on a paved walkway. There are 19 campsites at the recreation area with picnic shelters, tables, grills, and potable water at each site. There is a full facility bathroom and showers in the camp area, and vault toilets throughout the park. There are no electric or water hookups at the campgrounds.

Please note: While we strive to keep our listings updated, we recommend that you always call ahead to make sure the place you are visiting is still in business, at the same location, and has the same hours of operation. Do you have a favorite natural or organic place that we don't have listed yet? Tell us about your favorite place, or let us know any comments or feedback you have by sending us an email. Thank you!
