“Interesting State Park between Rockhound SP and Silver City”

Reviewed May 08, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived while the Visitor Center was open. Our reservations were for one night, a non-electric site. Since it was warm that day, upper 80's, we opted giving up our scenic boulder site for a 30A electric site. These are first come/first serve and you have the option to renew each day. Many of the non-electric sites are among t... more

“Always sites available contrary to State website ”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Agree with previous posts so I won’t rehash.
The best sites are in the rocks boondocking! If you stay on north side of Rocks you’ll have Verizon, but not ATT. You can also receive local digital tv on north side. This is a motorcyclist’s dream area for riding to the north and east.

“A unique camping experience in a very unique location”

Reviewed Mar 29, 2018

Overall Rating

You should be prepared to be 30 miles away from most things while you are here, Deming to the south and Silver City to the north are both that far away. Most sites here have good solar potential but your stay would be made easier with a quiet generator. There are vault toilets around the park and showers with hot water in the bathrooms... more

“Very cool place. Popular and busy.”

Reviewed Mar 09, 2018

Overall Rating

My advice to you is to make sure you are prepared to boondock when you arrive because the electric and water sites are pretty few and as popular as this place is, you can't count on getting one of those on your first try. The rock formations are amazing and you could easily get lost while winding your way through them. Not likely t... more

“Amazing - a new family favourite!”

Reviewed Jan 16, 2018

This was probably the most unique and enjoyable place we’ve stayed. The kids (and us adults) loved exploring and climbing the rocks. The road in was great, staff was friendly, simple yet good facilities, and very quiet and peaceful. We stayed for 3 nights in January without hookups. The nights were cold but the daytime was beautiful. A... more

“Neat, well run and fun.”

Reviewed Jan 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We camped here last night, January 6th, 2018. It's a nice place for photographers and has a few miles of walking trails too. It has an interesting Astrological bent to it, with a purpose built shed with a rolling roof which houses some telescopes. Each camp site is named for a galaxy or planet. Be forewarned that while the sites ar... more

“A State Park amongst the Large Rocks”

Overall Rating

The weather was really warm and we opted for one of the first come first served electric/water sites. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to run the AC. Our site had a nice metal picnic table under a metal shade structure. It was a level gravel pull-thru with plenty of space for our trailer and truck. Vegetation is strategically placed ... more
