Hello @astarmu Not sure if the trip is still planned, postponed or if it's later in the year. I'm not familiar with New Mexico, but a good first stop would be Catalina State Park in Tucson, AZ. It's off I-10, should be about 6-8 hours from LA, and has great established campgrounds, which are family oriented. It's a nice park! Hope this helps.
