Artists Ansel Adams and Georgia O'Keefe once made the landscapes of New Mexico famous, but New Mexico isn't just for artists -- there are great camping, recreational and sightseeing opportunities.

New Mexico is home to Carlsbad Caverns National Park, numerous state parks, and two historical parks. You can drive the historic US Route 66 or one of 25 scenic byways. In New Mexico, camping road trip possibilities are aplenty.

The camping possibilities are endless and quiet. The locals love their solitude and there is plenty of it. Famous for its beautiful skies, desserts, mountains and grasslands, New Mexico offers an abundance of outdoor activities. You can hike, bike, ride ATVs and horses, hunt, fish, climb and cave; in New Mexico, there is an outdoor adventure for everybody.
