Getting to the campground:
On US 54 between Carizozo and Tularosa, between mile posts 96 and 96 is a large sign indicating a turn to the east on Otero county road B030, also known as Three Rivers Road and forest road 579. Take this road about 5.3 miles. At the sign indicating that the petroglyphs are 0.25 miles to the left, turn and the road dead-ends at the petroglyph campground and parking lot.
Note that the speed limit on US 54 is 55mph. The highway patrol strictly enforce this limit; we often see people pulled over. Many (five or six on our last trip) damaged guardrails attest to the wisdom of the limit.
