The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered New Mexico’s Best Kept Secret

When people visit the Alamogordo area, White Sands National Monument is usually the first thing they want to see. Fair enough. It’s spectacular. However, this concentrated focus on White Sands means that people often overlook the nearby Oliver Lee Memorial State Park.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

To reach Oliver Lee Memorial State Park, head to 409 Dog Canyon Road in Alamogordo.
