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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

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