A great spot for an overnight stay on your way somewhere else. A bit noisy with being so close to the freeway. You are parked close to other campers and there are quite a few permanents there. Nice dog run areas and very clean and well kept. I stop here to and from quite often. Laundry facilities looked new and clean.

If you don't mind camping cheek by jowl alongside the freeway go here. I thought it was scary looking and they gave us two sites that we couldn't fit In with our 34' fifth wheel. I thought it looked like a homeless camp. You can tell they are trying to make it look nice, but between the small sites, freeway noise and the look of some of the "campers" we left and did not stay the night. The lady at the front desk was very nice and gave us our money back. Small lawn area in front of check in had nice fresh dog poop scattered around. Yikes!

Very nice park. Easy access to the freeway, clean, and had a nice hot tub and pool. There is a laundry facility with a lot of clean washers and dryers. Well taken care of and very pretty. The casino had better than average food and was a short walk from the RV park. I would definitely stay here again. The only downside was that there was a bit of freeway noise and of course a train. Why are all the RV parks near a train?

A great place to stay! Quiet and beautiful. A few miles from the interstate, well worth the drive. One of favorite state parks and we have stayed in state parks all over the country. Great price and lots of places to walk and just enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the "over-view" of Deming.

This is a beautiful park. Clean and spacious. The only reason I didn't give them a 10 is because some (one) of the people giving out the sites is a dunderhead! I asked if they had any camp sites, and he replied, "I don't think so". Then he looked and found 4 for us to look at for one night. OK, we drive through the campground, and there are only about 10 total sites taken. We go back and ask about another site and ask if we can stay four days. "Well, I guess". The campground was never full the whole time we were there, and yet other campers gave the same report. Almost didn't stay because the check-in guy said he didn't think any sites were empty. I think he just didn't want to be bothered. Bother him, it's well worth the stay!

Very nice campground, quiet and clean. The "pool" is amazing although it was too cold and windy for us to use it. Why are Texas state parks so expensive? This one charges 14.00 to camp, but then charges an additional 7 dollars PER PERSON. Again, why not just charge 21 dollars and then a "per person" charge. Obviously you have to have at least one person to get in the campground...I guess that just bugs me. We'd definitely camp here again if we visit Texas.

First let me saw that hurricanes have wiped this place out. Except for garbage and few garbage cans and a paved partial lot or 2 there is nothing here. We decided to check it out since we boondock a lot. I couldn't believe Texas considers this an active park and actually charges you to stay here. We had some somewhat rude rangers come by and tell us we couldn't have our dog off leash. Really? There is nothing and no one here and it's a garbage pit. At least we pick up after our dog. And I have never seen a worse infestation of mosquitoes. Never. Don't stay here, it's not worth it even if it were free.

If you are here for social hour, this is the place to be. Betty is great and is a great source of information. The campground is another matter. I rate campgrounds according to quiet and ambience. That's where they lost me. You are on a 55 mph road, cars and trucks going by all night. Gravel driveway and not much room in between. Since I'm not a big drinker or socializer this park was not for me.

This is our kind of camping! Beautiful, lots of trees, lots of space between sites. Quiet, paved, electric and water. Dump station available. Camp hosts came by and told us all about the place. Very helpful. Beautiful views of the lake.

Date of Stay:

This was a nice campground. Paved hiking area to the river. Nice space between sites. Full hook-ups.

We are in Area 5. Roads are new with large paved spaces. Fairly full but quiet. No sewer but there is water and electric. The lake is beautiful. Mostly retired folk this time of year. My experience with Oklahoma campgrounds are that they are hard to find. The roads aren't well marked. Very nice here. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful area, nice hikes. Privacy between campsites and quiet. Bison herd allowed to roam but not near campsites. Lot's of wildlife in area. Lake is down but pretty to look at and I saw people catching fish. We are in a 34' fifth wheel, no problem getting in to a site. The only complaint I have would be the three dollar entry fee per day for camping. Why not just say the camping per day is 18 bucks? I guess if you pay 70 dollars for a Texas pass it will go back down to 15 dollars. Seems like a long way around to me. Just charge "out of state" people 18 and Texas 15...I'm from out of state and I don't mind paying a little extra since I don't pay state tax here. I just don't like feeling tricked.

I think we are rather picky about noise. Although this is fairly close to a highway, it was quiet enough to sleep. The sites are very close and the place is a bit run down. It is the closest to Carlsbad Caverns, just minutes away. And it's safe enough. There is a little store and a post office and a clean enough but no taste restaurant across the street. Overall, we would stay here again. They had the power switched to campsites, just had to plug in on the other side of the pole as did our neighbor.

We were here for the Balloon Fiesta. We stayed in a non electric dirt field. It was quite close to the Balloon field, and we enjoyed the location of the field. That is where the fun ends. Some people ran their generators all night and partied. No one every drove through these areas after quiet time to check it out or enforce the rules. Dog waste everywhere. These are all retired folk (most) our age and yet they don't seem at all aware of the mess or amount of noise they make! We didn't sleep one entire evening for more than 20 minutes at a time. Also, during the week everything closes at Balloon Fiesta after 12:30. While it's not a problem to drive into Albuquerque, you'd think with thousands as a captive audience with money in their pockets they would provide SOMETHING to do. New Mexico is really wasting a lot of potential here. It's too bad because I would never ever stay here again. I only gave it 2 stars because it is a wonderful spot to watch the balloons go overhead. Oh and no water or dump station. If you want that it's 25 dollars extra for EACH!

This is a great place if you are looking for peace and quiet. Only about 17 miles from Santa Fe and about 40 miles from Albuquerque. Paved large sights, almost all have view of the water or canyon. Large covered picnic tables and BBQ. 12.00 with water available, 20 if you want power and water. No sewer hook-ups, dump station available. I would definitely come here again. Great for star gazing! Love this place.
