Plan Your Visit

On more than 13.5 million acres of public lands managed by BLM-New Mexico, visitors enjoy countless types of outdoor adventure–camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, boating, whitewater rafting, hang gliding, off-highway vehicle driving, mountain biking, birding and wildlife viewing, photography, climbing, all types of winter sports, and visiting natural and cultural heritage sites.

Some information helpful for planning your visit will vary by recreation site including fees, seasonal hours, and special regulations.  For this reason, we suggest that you go to the website of the recreation area(s) you will be visiting or contact the BLM office that manages the area.
