Yes, there is no problem pulling your 5th wheel thru White Sands National "Monument". Also, there are plenty of very large parking areas if you want to stop and explore. And there are spots to camp.

Camp? Really, since when. There is hike in camping but no RV camping that I know of. And it is a national park as of a month or two ago.

White Sands is a national park. No longer a national monument. There is no place to camp in a fifth wheel but I don't think it would be a problem pulling it thru the park.

I stand corrected. I didn't know of the recent elevation to national park status, and I was wrong about camping which exists but only in the form of backcountry camping.

I THINK the park closes when the wind blows.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.
