We went up to White Sands Missile Range because Fort Bliss was filled. We took the highway 213 from El Paso to the base. The road was nice 2 lane with wide shoulder the entire way. No problem going through the back gate. Check in at the MWR facility in the old golf pro shop was easy. $10 a night is unbelievable for a FHU facility. All 8 pads are pull through with 20/30/50a, water, sewer, grill, and shelter. The scenery is awesome with the Organ Mountains right outside your door. We talk a bike ride down through the old golf course and it was really nice. The restrooms/showers are in the building next to the campground. They were acceptable, but that is about it, not really dirty but dark and old. We did laundry on post at the laundry mat. It was $1.50 wash and .25 for 8 minutes to dry ($1 per load for us). There was not much to do on-post. We went in to Las Cruces everyday. We really did enjoy Las Cruces, it is a nice town. If we were coming back into this area, I woul not hesitate to stay here again!
