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

“A surprising bargain”

Reviewed Oct 22, 2017

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

“Sweet little state park for a sweet little price”

Reviewed Sep 27, 2017

Overall Rating

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

“Small, quiet park, close to Las Cruces”

Reviewed Jan 14, 2017

Overall Rating

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. The park is small and has two campground loops: The Cactus Patch Loop & the Greasewood Loop. The sites in the Cact... more

“Wide-open, clean, quiet, flat park in the middle of nowhere, NM”

Reviewed Feb 18, 2016

Overall Rating

This park is about 25 miles north of Las Cruces, NM. Coming from the south, once you leave I-10, you wander through pecan groves until you get to Radium Springs. It's easy to get lost when you get close: my GPS app tried to take me to the day-use area, which is closed and padlocked. I stopped at Fort Selden, just up the road from... more
