“One of the best State Parks in New Mexico!!!”

Reviewed Sep 11, 2018

Overall Rating

I am traveling the norther part of New Mexico over September, and added Sumner Lake on a lark. Turns out though, one of the best parks I've stayed at in New Mexico. I stayed in Pecos-Site 10 the first 2 days, then decided to boondock down at the waters edge. WiFi - 4+ bars for both ATT and Verizon - 20mb down, 18mb up The only... more

We had business in Fort Sumner, or we would not have been in Fort Sumner in June. That being said, overall it was a pretty good camping experience. It was 100 degrees so we took a site with electric and water. The electric was only 30 amp (we would prefer 50 at that temperature so we could run 2 AC's, but it did cool down). We chec... more

“Maybe we'll try it again, maybe not.”

Overall Rating

Would I camp here again? Maybe, maybe not. Most likely if we needed a stop-over in the future, I would opt for a Walmart parking lot if possible. I suppose it depends on where we are traveling to-and-from would be the biggest determining factor. We were traveling from Alburquerque heading to Muleshoe NWR so this was planned as an overn... more

“About right for the middle of nowhere. ”

Reviewed Feb 28, 2018

We selected this location as a quick winter trip from Albuquerque. The weather here was windy and cold, but it is New Mexico in February. The sites are well maintained but sparse and close together. There aren’t many views and the most prominent was houses close to the west. We moved after the first day and went to Racoon campground ... more

“Nice but not close to anything, good overnighter if you are passing through on 84”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This was an alternate stop for me, it was out of my way. I am not fond of the main road in/out (84). From the north this road has a lot of rolling which causes prolonged bouncing of my rig. The speed limit is 65 for most of that part of 84 (from the North heading south) and most everyone does well over the posted speed limit, which isn... more

Well, we were going to stay one night but stayed an extra day because we did like this place. Site had water & electric hookups and a covered table. Our RV was facing the lake and we experienced very beautiful sunsets. The campground was quiet and remote yet we had full 4G reception (ATT & Verizon) and I was able to connect and do my w... more

Date of Stay: April 2015 If you like windy, remote, out of the way places on reservoirs, Sumner Lake State Park is the place for you! :) Wind is what you expect in the high plains, and Sumner Lake came through. Of course most of New Mexico is windy in the Spring, so why should this place be any different? I chose a water only ... more
