“Quiet place, tucked away.”
NM State Parks have gone with "Reserve America" now, and thus if you don't get a prior internet reservation (and pay the ridiculous $12 reservation fee per stay on top of your camping fees) it will be highly unlikely to get into many of their parks. This SP actually has several camping areas. Three of them, plus a privative section are all at the actual Park location and are well marked on Campendium. I asked to get this place added because the directions they give you on the reservation are hard to follow.
Riverside is south of the dam, well away from the park entrance in lower terrain and harder to find if you've never been there before...so let me help because most mapping software will lead you on a goose chase. When you exit highway 25 onto 187, take your immediate right. As you approach the dam site, you will find that road blocked. Veer to the right and you will go down in elevation quite a bit. The road is rough so you'll need to go pretty slow to keep from bouncing your rig all around. Once you get past the dam and along the river, the park will open up and for RV spots, you'll want to proceed all the way to the back and then follow the loop in a clockwise rotation. That's it!
As for the park...nice and quiet so far. The showers and restrooms are slightly dated but they keep up on them. On the south end of this location is a group camp that huge and unless occupied is a great place to let your animals run. Enjoy!
