Overall Rating

We're in the midst of a very fast trip from Forest City, Iowa to the Phoenix area but had pushed hard enough to take the slow road through northen New Mexico. The Maverick campground was picked because it was nicely placed on the map, but I'd absolutely come back again.

There are three campgrounds in the Cimarron Canyon State Park. The camp host says that Maverick is the most scenic of the three. It does border the highway, but there's VERY little traffic at night, so nightime highway noise is not a issue.

The park says the campsites are 20 to 30 feet in length. We spotted a couple larger rigs as we drove through before selecting our site, but it appeared that a shoehorn may have been used to get them in place. There are a number of sites that back to the "Gravel Pit Lakes" that were all full, including a couple rigs sticking out into the narrow loop road leaving just enough clearance to get by. The sites that back to the highway are the last to fill but were the only ones available with enough length when we arrived.

There is one restroom building and trash collection. I didn't check out the interior of the bathroom building. All of the sites are without power or electric so the cost is $10 which is the standard for New Mexico State Parks.

I'm not sure how many bars I had since the Mobley device I carried on this trip doesn't show bars, but we had enough AT&T connectivity to post this review.
