Gas Station

Due to the somewhat remote nature of our park, there are no gas stations at White Sands National Monument. The closest gas station is in Alamogordo, roughly 13 miles northeast on Highway 70 East. The next gas station would be in Las Cruces, approximately 50 miles northwest on Highway 70 West.

If you are coming from Alamogordo or Las Cruces, it is highly recommended that you fill up your gas tank before leaving town. There are no gas stations between Alamogordo and Las Cruces.
