Your Guide To White Sands National Park Campervan Rentals

Book A Campervan

When you’re traveling to White Sands National Park, go ahead and pick up an Escape Campervan. Begin your epic road trip at our Phoenix campervan rental location. Then head to your destination and see the San Andres Peak, Bennett Mountain, and everything White Sands National Park offers.

When you get a campervan rental you’re able to stow away your things in an easy-to-drive central base. Then when the sun goes down, prepare a delicious dinner using your mobile kitchen and relax in a comfortable queen-size bed.

Forget RVs, Use A White Sands National Park Campervan Rental For The Ultimate Experience

You’ve probably known friends who used a White Sands National Park RV rental for their trip. But there are many benefits of getting a camper van rental instead. An Escape Campervan includes many of the same amenities as an RV, but in a cooler, sleeker form. 

Similar to an RV, a camper van offers a working kitchen, a table and bench, and a queen-size bed. However, it’s all more compact for ease of use. For instance, the bed only pulls out when you’d like to use it. So it’s like you’re driving this hidden campsite just waiting to be unleashed at any moment.

With a camper van rental, your adventure isn’t limited to the main roads or overcrowded RV campsites. Camper vans can easily pull into more secluded tent sites. And camper vans don’t require the electric or sewer hookups like an RV. Camper vans also work well for dispersed camping!

But Which Escape Campervan Should You Rent For White Sands National Park?

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing which Escape Campervan to take to White Sands National Park. We offer the Mavericks and Big Sur at the Phoenix depot, which will vary in size and amenities. 

Our most popular campervan is the Mavericks. This Escape campervan gives you a comfortable queen-size bed, foldaway in-van table and benches, a 2-burner propane stove, dual powered refrigerator, and a sink. The Mavericks is ideal for private getaways to White Sands National Park. But it can sleep 5, so it can fit the whole family. We also offer rooftop sleepers if you want your kids to sleep on their own.

If you’d like additional room for your stuff, or if taking an extended trip, looking into the Big Sur campervan. Here you get the same amenities as the Mavericks. Yet it’s large enough that you don’t have to fold down the bucket seats to make your queen-size bed. The Big Sur also includes extra storage space. So feel free to take that extra bathing suit. You can even go for the optional rooftop sleeper.

All campervan rentals feature our one-of-a-kind hand-painted exteriors that help you show your adventurous spirit. You can also rent campervan extras for White Sands National Park like picnic tables, bike racks, and child safety seats to make your trip even better. And with each rental, you’ll receive outstanding customer care and 24/7 roadside assistance absolutely free!

About White Sands National Park

Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world’s great natural wonders – the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world’s largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Park preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here.

Where Should You Camp At White Sands National Park?

Like most visitors, you could stay at the Primitive Backcountry Campsites or Oliver Lee Memorial State Park. You better call first, though, as you could need reservations — especially when it’s busy from May to September. Of course, you won’t need a large pad or sewer hookups, meaning you can stay almost anywhere!

For out-of-the-way campsites, make your way over to Raptor Lake or Holloman AFB FamCamp. Or try dispersed camping near White Sands National Park in your campervan. Just know, dispersed camping means no bathrooms or fire pits, so use the Leave No Trace principles.
