“Don't camp here during a rodeo”

Reviewed Sep 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Don't put the name of the campground or rodeo ground in your GPS; it will take you onto US-60, from which there is no entrance. Put Fairgrounds Road in the GPS. Access is from Hwy-1, Frontage Road South, at the top of the first hill as you head south from town. There is a sign at the intersection. This apparently unnamed road becomes Rodeo Drive when it crosses Fairgrounds Road. Bear right when you get onto the gravel, and go to the right of the covered horse pens.

The campground is gravel, and poorly drained. There were large puddles and running streams each time it rained. The sites are very short. I had to park my tow vehicle in the next site, and then put it at an angle across the end of my site when the campground filled up.

When I booked my stay here, I didn't know it was to be a rodeo weekend. Check the rodeo ground schedule before you book. I was the only camper on Wednesday night. A few horse trailers came in Thursday, and then most came in overnight. When I got up Friday morning, the campground was full of horses.

Friday and Saturday were tolerable, except for growing amounts of manure throughout the campground. Things deteriorated Sunday evening after the rodeo. I will just say that I communicated with the city director of sports and recreation the next day, and I was assured that in the future, the police will patrol the campground during events to deal with noisy behavior and drunkenness.

Verizon 4G was rather slow, but there was free campground wifi, which was very fast, even when the campground was full during the rodeo. I got the password from an employee who came out to greet me when I arrived.

I have given my star ratings as if there had been no rodeo. It would be unfair to do otherwise. If it had not been for the rodeo, for which of course the campground was built, it would have been a very pleasant stay.

“Great place to stay in Socorro”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground was built and opened in 2017 primarily to service the Rodeo grounds. But with very light use there likely always be an opening. If not in the actual RV park there is plenty of open parking on the east side.

Entry is off the east side on NM Rt 1. Don't be fooled looking at Google Earth and seeing a couple of gates on the west side. They are not used.

Full hookups with a mix of full 50amp and 30amp sites. Power size is labeled on the hookup poles.

You can reserve and pay online. I didn't see anyplace to pay at the grounds so simply pulled in, picked out a space and then registered online.

Close to multiple interesting places. The Very Large Array (VLA) satellite farm (in the Contact movie) is about 50 miles west. Fascinating museum and tour. In town the NM Tech college has a great gemology collection. Couple of smaller museums open on a limited basis.

Basque del Apache is close by for the return of the cranes in early November. And if you are there the first Saturday in April and October you tour the Trinity atomic test site. interesting factoid is that in the town square of Socorro is a piece of the Jumbo bomb case which was at the Trinity explosion.
