Filed By: intensecamper Number of People Encountered: 0-10 ppl Recommend to a Friend: Highly Report: We went to Bandelier National Monument last summer. Five of us (three under 10) in a tent. The campground (Juniper) had a dish-washing sink (which was nice), but no showers. The weather turned really hot toward the end of our visit, so we went to Sonic (Drive-in restaurant) in Los Alamos for a break from campfire cooking. Also, this is a great place to hike--with very beautiful scenery. Take the trail that leads to the Rio Grande--breathtaking views from the trail. If you love the smell of pine trees, you will love this place!!
