Upper Fir Group Area is one of the most popular campsites in the Sacramento Mountain area. Unique to its neighboring campgrounds, it’s set far back from public roads, allowing for true peace and quiet.

The campground is on the northwestern portion of the Lincoln National Forest, a protected area spanning an incredible 1.1 million acres of land. Spend your days exploring the mountains, or head west for a day trip to explore White Sands National Monument, the world’s largest dune field of pure, white gypsum sand.


An open meadow, perfect for sports like ultimate Frisbee or horseshoes, is connected to the campground. The Rim Trail is a short hike or drive away, offering epic views, rocky inclines, and switchbacks for adventurous mountain bikers, hikers, and horse-back riders. Further down, the same trail opens up to motorcyclists as well.


This is one of the only group sites with water access. Upper Fir comfortably fits groups as large as 120, and it’s connected to Lower Fir Group if your party has a need for an additional group of up to 70 campers.

Natural Features

Set 9,000 feet above sea level in the Sacramento Mountains, Upper Fir Group Area is close to breathtaking scenic overlooks, spanning the far-reaching desert valley of the Tularosa Basin. The high-elevation region offers a mixture of pine, fir, aspen, and oak trees, with high mountain meadows full of wildflowers and blossoming plants.

Nearby Attractions

The campground is a mile from the town of Cloudcroft, a quaint tourist village with New Mexico’s only standing railroad trestle.
