“Out of the way place to hike and relax”

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.

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”.

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.

We enjoyed our stay at this park. Although it was relatively full when we were there, we never felt that we were being over-crowded. There was ample room at our site. The walks directly from our campsite were easy and well worth the time. Each sunset deserved a walk to the top of the main trail that surrounds the campground for ... more

When we pulled into Rockhound, we were surprised to find only one spot available. It seems that easy access off I-15 and proximity to Deming make this a popular stop for travelers. The campground has two loops: one loop has 23 sites with electric/water hookups and the other has 6 dry camping sites. All sites offer reasonable pri... more

The campground is located about midway up the side of a medium sized hill which borders the campground to the north and east (e.g., views are to the south and west.) Some of the sites are terraced and offer unobstructed views of the valley below. This campground offers our favorite type of site: non-reservable and un-serviced! We l... more

The dry camping sites are particularly nice and most are pretty spacious. There are a few short hikes near the campground which would be doable for anyone. Saw many people collecting rocks as you are allowed to take a certain poundage home.

Rockhound State Park has a beautiful campground, especially the dry camping area. Spaces are far apart and surrounded by wildflowers and cactus.
