The rate reflects a 50% Federal Pass senior discount. Most of the sites in the campground are really made for tents; they have either a very short drive or are very sloped or both. There are three loops in the campground. The middle loop (Bear) has only one or perhaps two sites that would work for a smaller RV. The best bet for RVsites are the first (Abert's Squirrel) or the third (Coyote) loops. Even in those loops there are not very many sites. We did not have a problem finding a site suitable for our smaller motorhome on a weekday in the shoulder season, but it could be an issue in the busier times and the campground is not on a reservation system. The roads and spaces are paved. Most are fairly well separated with some vegetation for privacy. All sites have a picnic table and grill. There is convenient fresh water fill and a dump station. The generator hours are very generous - from 8 am to 8 pm. Either good or bad news depending on your point of view . It is not too far off of the main road, but it is wonderfully quiet and dark at night. To access the main part of the park between 9 am and 3 pm you have to use the shuttle service. One of the stops for the shuttle is right next to the campground, which is very convenient. The other way is to hike down a fairly steep 1.6 mile trail. One thing to note is that as you approach the park, there are many signs stating that to enter the park you must use the shuttle from the White Rock Visitor Center. If you are camping in the park you can ignore those signs and proceed directly to the campground. We did not have Verizon cell or data. Satellite was not a problem in our site in the first loop. It would be more of an issue in loop three. We would certainly camp here again to visit the park and the surrounding area. If you need hook-ups, the new Visitor Center in White Rock has RV spaces with electric hook-up. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the Juniper Campground. This is a first come campground with no hookups for $12 a night and $6 if you have a pass. The campground is right after the entrance to the park. There are three loops with picnic tables and fireplaces. Not many of the sites are level and loop C has more sites for RVs up to 30 feet and more shade. It is a beautiful place to camp. We were planning on one night and decided to stay three nights. After May 24, the shuttles are running so you can pick one up from the campground and head down to the Valley Visitor Center. In the canyon there is the Valley Visitor Center, gift shop, snack bar, administrative offices, ranger stations and many of the hikes begin from here. The Main Trail has some of the best cliff dwellings that you can see and climb into using ladders and paths. Frey Trail (2 miles) which was the old way of getting supplies and visitors into the valley starts from the campground and ends at the Long House Cliff Dwellings and it is all downhill – take the shuttle back. The Alcove trail goes to a dwelling inside a cave that one can access by climbing three long ladders. The campground always has a nice breeze during the day and at night. We were there for a weekend and it was not full on any night. There is a new Visitor Center on route 4 in White Rocks that opened in the fall and it has 16 slots with hookups for RVs in the parking lot. It was free but now that they have a self check booth just like Juniper campground. It costs $10 but once campers find out about it the price might change. The shuttles come to this visitor center so if you have an oversize RV you might want to stay here. Juniper campground is about 8 miles away from visiting Los Alamos driving 4 west than 501 – one of the best ways to get into the city. You will have to go through security to get to the downtown because you are driving through the LA National Laboratory where the Manhattan Project was born. Driving in they searched our RV (our choice we didn’t want to take the longer way with more curves) and driving back we were escorted. Two great museums in town (all museums free), the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos History Museum. The history of the town is fascinating and Juniper Campground is a great place to camp while you are touring the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, quiet lightly used campground. Some big rig sites. No hookups but water hydrants available. No Verizon service. Golden Age Rate. Some sites have shade. As dry camping campgrounds go, this is one of the best. We camped here in a Motorhome.
