Upon approaching the entrance, there is a Stop sign and orange cones which block the right hand side lane. Instructions are provided to pay to enter, camp, etc. Since we had reservations, we bypassed the cones and drove a couple of hundred yards to the Visitors Center. Finding the Visitors Center closed, we drove to our reserved si... more

“Beautiful but Busy”

I am catching up with reviews, so we actually were here in late February 2018. Most of the sites here are first-come-first-served except for a handful of partial hook-up sites. After hearing how popular this park is, we arrived before 11:00 AM Sunday morning. Karen, the host, came racing over to meet us in her golf cart, catching us... more

We arrived without a reservation and the wonderful camp host "Karen" was very accommodating. She was truly happy to see us and ensured we had a spot to camp. Due to the size of our fifth wheel (37-foot) we were unable to fit into any of the overflow sites available at the time. We ended up dry camping in a "site" off the side of the ma... more

We stayed here in late November 2017. The weather was fantastic and our site 17 was a reservable site. This site was huge and I think the best site in the camp with nice views of the valley and the Little Florida Mountains. Ample room for the table and fire pit and neighbors a good distance away. We hiked around, visited Las Cruces one... more

Truly a gem of a little state park not far from the highway. Abundant wildlife; we spotted quail, many different grasshoppers and lizards and even one small snake. There are some hiking trails we enjoyed the evening we arrived and the next morning. The bathrooms and showers were new and clean. Would definitely stay there if we are back... more

4 stars for the beauty, campsite size and cost. The showers were the best I've seen in a state park. Great shower water pressure, looked brand new. The bathrooms were also super clean in general. There are no signs here and the camphost meets you to guide you in. I'm sure some people love this. I didn't like this. A, I don't trust s... more

We arrived at 11:30am on a Wednesday the week of Spring Break without reservations and were delighted to snag the next to last W/E site. The incredibly helpful and friendly camp host met us as we entered the park, let us know which spaces were available, and steered us towards site #16, at “the top of the world”. She certainly steered ... more

We had to overnight near Deming so we could visit the Ford dealer the next morning. We got the last open site (on a Tuesday). The sites are large, well maintained and super clean. There are hiking trails near by and if you are into geology or semi-precious stones, you can spend a day poking around the near by hills. The camp host was ... more

Stayed five nights here, my first experience with New Mexico State Parks, and it was great. The camp hosts met me as I was driving in, waiting for me to dump (needed it!) and then led me to my site with their golf cart! My site was HUGE, and had a great view to the west for mountains and sunset views. Also a good dark sky park at night... more
