I had high hopes for this park, sadly this is not a happy camper. After driving 6 hours we arrived after the visitors center had closed, proceeded to the spot we had reserved 6 weeks prior, only to find a fifth wheel set up in our site. I walked to the camp hosts camper to ask what to do and he said he wasn’t the camp host, although t... more

“Very nice state park but very busy when I was there. Amazing scenery in the area!”

My stay here is where my overall trip plans fell apart so I was not in a good head space, still I had a good experience here with the park, the facilities and the amazing location. I got there right as everyone was leaving from a holiday weekend so it was packed then almost vacant the next day. The road I took in from I40 exit 63 had s... more

“Just okay campground ”

Reviewed Jun 15, 2017

Overall Rating

I wasn't impressed with this place or possibly my expectations were too high. The lake was pretty, the campground open. I thought the campground was full however we found that most of the sites are not reservable and in turn ended up with a less than desirable spot. There was no clear place to swim, at least for younger kids, alt... more

“Nice campground overlooking lake”

Reviewed May 16, 2017

Tent camped here for 2 nights. The second night was quite windy since my campsite was near the cliff overlooking the lake. Friday night was quiet and peaceful; Saturday night not so due to people on the other side of the lake running ATV's for several hours so if you want peace and quiet better to stay during the week as there is a lo... more

We stayed here on the week leading up to Easter weekend. Although it was mildly busy when we arrived the preceding Sunday, it was completely dead during the week before absolutely exploding on Thursday and Friday - it was completely full by the weekend.

When we arrived late at night we picked an electric site (#6). The site only had electric hook-up. There is a drinking water fill station and a seperate dump station. The electric site was $14. That night the sky was clear and we could easily see the Milky Way. The temperature dropped down in the low 30's. The following morning, we... more

We came here for the horses and they did not disappoint. It was mid-Oct and the cg is totally self serve. No one at the office and while there was a host, I never saw them. We figured it out eventually and decided the beach boon docking was the place for us. There is one section near the boat ramp that is marked no camping, but the res... more

We stayed for one night on our way out of Albuquerque and we wished we had more time here. We came on Labor Day night, so by the time we arrived, the place was ghost town empty. It rained lightly that night and the ambiance was almost eerily peaceful. I recommend hiking around the site to the canyonside and you will get some gorgeou... more

I was only going to stay a night or two.. stayed 14 nights. My rate reflects the NM Annual Camping Pass rate. I stayed there in early May 2015, which is before their very busy summer season so the campground was not very busy (I'm loving it). The campground has one electric loop with approximately15 sites, four non-electric loops, and... more
