“ Surprisingly Quiet Overnighter ”

Reviewed Mar 24, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed the night here inroute to Arizona and were surprised at how quiet and clean it was. And the views, wow, scenic is correct! You drive up a hill to get to this rest area so it blocks out all the highway noise. There were a few other RVers and Truckers that stayed the night so we felt safe. It is an eastbound rest area so if yo... more

“Above average rest stop camping”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2017

Overall Rating

My first rest stop overnight and I'm sold on free! Lots of trucks coming through during the night but I slept okay regardless. Quite a few others stayed the night making it feel safe in numbers. We made the mistake of parking too close to the restrooms. Don't be like us.

“Quiet with a pretty view.”

Reviewed Mar 09, 2017

Overall Rating

We pulled in after dark but were able to find plenty of space. The overlook itself was pretty at night and in the morning. They offer shelters with a decent grill setup for those interested. The bathrooms are ok.

There are even a few things to do including the roadrunner sculpture, a geocache, and Pokémon Go!

“Great view to stop for. ”

Reviewed Mar 01, 2017

Overall Rating

Stopped here while traveling to Texas, great view of Las Cruces and love giant statue of the road runner. It's made out of recycled items like tires, shoes, and electronic items! Restrooms are clean as well as the picnic areas, not noisy being right next to the highway.

Overall Rating

We stopped here for an overnight between Tucson, AZ and Carlsbad, NM. The overnight noise was surprisingly tolerable. The nearby truck engines provided a constant white noise that didn't disrupt our sleep at all. There are picnic shelters and a view of Las Cruces, but once we parked, we just holed up inside and took advantage of the... more
