This is a nice quiet and comfortable campground. Camp host and rangers are very nice and helpful. Sites are cement pads Witt nice shelters at each site. This is not a large campground. Las cruces is a short drive away.

“Quiet state park”

Reviewed Dec 26, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a relatively small SP with both reservations sites and a first come/first serve area. Our large rig (40') would likely only fit into the reservation sites, and their website indicates that 40' is the campground limit, which seems about right. Nearly of the sites are pull-through and include a covered picnic table and outdoor ... more

We came to Leasburg SP to stay a night or two so we could do a day trip to White Sands National Monument. It is a small campground and they were full when we arrived on November 6th (a Tuesday). The nice host apologized but said they didn't have a site for us so we turned around to head out. As we were leaving the Ranger stopped us and... more

This is a nice campground close to I-25, and next to Fort Selden Historic Site. Dry camping sites were $10, and water/electric sites $14. My site was level concrete, with a nice covered picnic table. The park ranger patrolled the campground regularly, and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. After I had been talk... more

We came for the Hatch Chili Festive which was about 30 minutes north. We were in the cactus patch loop where all the sites are reservable and pull through. Did I say level? Oh yea, there is a perfectly level concrete pad to pull up onto. Once a month, a local guy set up in the park and plays his guitar and sings, followed by the openin... more

...but it’s easy to do out here. Sure, there’s a train and some highway and mysterious unseen aircraft but all of that noise blends into the rush of the desert wind. Signs along the highway warn of what to do in case of a dust storm. Most days in March it was just sunshine and breezy though. Good for keeping the gnats away. Enjoy m... more

Wow! $14 a night with water and power! That seems to be the going rate at the New Mexico State Parks. This park is located near the Rio Grande just north of Las Cruces. It is in the desert with little shade so a park for the cooler months. There are pros and cons. Pros: It’s a great price for hookups. The sites are clean and prett... more

We love Leasburg State Park. It's easy to get to, easy to find, close proximity to Hatch or Las Cruces for great New Mexico Mexican food. Although close to hwy, you don't notice it. Love the high desert vegetation, birds and other wildlife. Very peaceful. The pull-thru sites are spacious, level concrete pads. Ramada provides shade and ... more

We hadn't originally planned to visit this park, however when we found ourselves in Las Cruces, NM in need of an affordable spot to overnight and perform some unexpected maintenance on our rig, this place fit the bill.
