Los Alamos is adjacent to the Santa Fe National Forest and Bandelier National Monument. Camping in the National Forest is mostly along State Route 4 in the Jemez Mountains. Some undeveloped spots can be found closer to town. At Bandelier, the Ponderosa campground is the best choice, and is located near the intersection of State Route 4 and NM 501. See this Google map showing a number of local camping options.
