Details

Enjoy a night of camping under the moon light at White Sands, after the full moon hike. There is a short backpack to get to the camp site (~1.0 miles).

I (Raena) am planning on heading over to the park in the late morning/early afternoon to get a campsite, so I will not be meeting the group at Kmart.

More information about backcountry camping at White Sands. (http://www.nps.gov/whsa/planyourvisit/backpacking.htm)

Permits are $3/person, on top of the entry fee into the monument. Permits are on a first come, first serve basis so we must close RSVPs early.

It is important you RSVP early and accurately.

Limiting to 6 folks for now, may open up to more. Only 6 people are allowed at each campsite.

**A Note about camping. You will need to put the licences plate information for every vehicle that will be parked near the campsite trailhead. Just keep that in mind as things are coordinated. **
