We spent 21 nights here, with Golden Age Pass at $8 a night. 50 amp electric and water were excellent. Dump station located on back of loop, easy to get to and use. A variation of sites, shady or sunny, long or short. Just watch for a few to have a slope. Much to see and do, like a mile walk from campground to visitor center. Trails, and an observation deck to the alligator pond. A resident blue heron, lots of egrets, and raccoons. This is definitely worth a stay!

Date of Stay:

Easy to get in and out. We were given a nice pull through, full hook-ups. Very level paved, with a brick patio off the steps. Staff was very nice, and laundry was reasonable at $1.25 for wash and $1.00 for dry. Very clean. I would definitely stop here again if coming through.

Date of Stay:

When we arrived, there had been a water main break, so there was no water. When it came back on later in the day, we went to do laundry. The machines were not getting water because they forgot to turn the water back on for that area. We got our coin money back, but were out the detergent and clorox in 4 machines, as they could not get them to reset so we could do our laundry. Though it was fairly quiet, there seemed to be a few long term residents. Some barking dogs, and a couple strays that startled us on the trail. After the condition of the trail, we decided to skip the tour and only stayed one night. Although park help was friendly and helpful, they were young, and we left after one night. I probably would not stay here again.

Pull through site with water and electric. Decent view, close to the gift shop and tours of the caverns. Good for an overnight stay, and a chance to see the caverns.

Full hookup. Plain Jane campground. Laundry facilities, but did not use them. PPA cash price of $12 is great for an overnight stay.

Sign at entrance says: "RV park is open." It is totally overgrown with deadly nightshade. We pulled into the one spot that we could exit rig without stepping into the nightshade. Electric did not work. There is a drop box for money. Restaurant is closed down. Inquired at gas station across street and they said the park has been closed for awhile. Need to remove the sign. Keep on going down the road!

Date of Stay:

This is difficult to rate. Self check-in, as there is never anyone at the office. We chose a site in the rear, back-in, facing the desert and mountains. The sites are level, and very wide. All utilities worked fine. Within 1/2 hour of set-up, a Bobcat walked past our site. That was the highlight of the two days there. We were unable to hear coyotes at night, for all the neighborhood dogs barking. Someone close has geese, chickens and various livestock. We were woke up in the morning by a rooster. So much for a high desert atmosphere. Never found the vast library. All the amenities are next door at Desert Trails campground. While there are pretty paths leading into their park, signs state not to enter if you are not camping there. The park was a disappointment. Next time we will stay at Desert Trails.

We had planned to stay one night, but after arriving, and seeing the wonderful vista, we stayed three nights. Would have stayed longer if possible. Nestled beside the mountains, the campground is raised and has a beautiful view of the lights of Deming at night. The sites are beautifully landscaped, and there are different size sites, to suit your needs. The visitor center is a must see, and offers insight into some of the rocks you may find if you are a rock hound. There is a Desert Botanical Garden, and a Native Plant Garden. The showers and bathrooms were clean. Hook-ups, w/e, worked fine. We had some high wind, but only after the perfect first day. There are two geocache located in the park. We found one, but were unable to find the other. This is a wonderful park and you should plan to stop here at least once. We will definitely return.

This is one of those must do once campgrounds. We spent a week here and loved every minute of it! The Wi-Fi worked very well, only cut off for 1/2 an hour each day. The pull-throughs are a substantial size. Since the wind can be a problem at certain times of the day, it would be a bother to put out the awning. The clubhouse has a vast library of books, videos and DVDs. There are numerous things to do, bongo and game nights, puzzles, pool table and much more. The office is only open 10 to noon, but the clubhouse is open all the time. Nice laundry facilities, with option to hang clothes on their outside line, and they dried in no time. Full hook-ups all work fine. Metered electric. Originally pulled into #E-5, but there is a large cactus that hangs into the drive, we were unable to reach utilities and put the slide out, so moved to E-4. Facing the mountains and desert, it is a wonderful view. Roadrunners, jackrabbits and quail are abundant. The coyotes are plentiful at night, along with some other creatures I could not identify. The only downside to this park, is the 7 miles of dirt road into the ranch. We were only able to drive our motorhome about 10 miles per hour due to the washboard effect, and could not go to the side as it was very soft. The lady in the office admitted that the grader had done a poor job on the dirt road. As a conclusion, although we loved the ranch very much, I would not come back due to the road.

This was our 2nd trip to Santa Rosa State Park. And like the first time, we enjoyed it very much. We chose a site at the far end, had only 30 amp and no water, but that was fine. Walked a couple trails and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Several pull throughs, and the back-ins are easy to negotiate as well, spacious and with a covered picnic table. We will stay again when in the area.

We stayed at Monticello South. This is without a doubt, our favorite state park in New Mexico. Nice sized sites. We stayed closer to the lake, so only had 30 amp, but, no problems there, or with water hookups. The hosts at this campground, are very friendly, and keep each site immaculate. While the lake was very low, it made for a very quiet campground with few visitors. We stayed two nights, and were able to listen to the owls and the coyotes in the morning. Will always stay here, when passing through.

This park is fine for an overnight. Trains run by constantly across the road, most do not blow their horns. Don't come here to do laundry, unless you have a towed and can go to town. They have one washer and one dryer, and it seemed to be the construction workers day to do laundry. We needed to do one load and it took us all day to get a spot. The lady at the office is very nice, but the three barking dogs that greet you were a little overwhelming. We were able to pick our 30 amp spot, but it was difficult with the set-ups. Water hoses from unoccupied sites ran to neighboring RV's. Some looked like they didn't have water spigots. Supposed to be full-hookup but not sure where the sewer was located. Gratefully didn't need it. Would probably use again for one night only, if in area.

We opted for 2 nights here after a long drive. That was mistake #1. Upon entering office, was greeted by a large Pit Bull and no one came from out back for 5 minutes. Very unnerving. No cable TV as listed, drive-in and pizzaria are only open June to August. One dumpster located at entrance/exit. Rained all day yesterday, made walking a dog a mess, and ruining my entrance steps. The mud will suck your shoes off. No view of anything except ancient car shells, and just miscellaneous junk. And for all this ambience, they raised the price for PA to $14 a night. Would not recommend, and will not return.

Shady spots with FHU. Sewers are iffy, pull the lever too fast, it will overflow at the start (may explain the whiffs of sewage every once in a while). Water pressure weak. Did look in restrooms when in that area. Shower curtains for stall doors. Seemed clean though. Management nice and helpful, worked to get us into a site that would get us Wi-Fi for the 2 week stay. Wi-Fi will put you in misery, loading anything more than e-mail. Previous reviewer stated a lot of old RV's on site. Not really. A couple at most, but the place is large and you have to go out of your way to find them. A lot of seasonal, but, you can tell their sites by the flowers and upkeep. Area was very noisy late into the night with fireworks, for the week-end of the Fourth. You can hear the freeway noise at night, but the campground is usually quiet. The spaces are doable, not overly big. There is a 5 mph speed limit and we were given a big lecture about it, although we have no toad and once parked would not go until time to leave. However, parked in first row by entrance, the cars fly by, even when you are standing there with your dog. Rule does not seem to be enforced with the ones that really need it: the long-timers that know better. The mosquitos are ridiculous! Sat out one night, and that was it! Haven't sat out since, they will eat you alive. And campfires: forget leaving a window open at night. I love a nice wood fire, but, that is not what these people burn, smells like rubber for the most part. Other than that, easy to get to, lots of nice people and quiet. I would stay again if in the area.

Rate reflects PPA discount. Lady at counter was very nice and helpful. All pull-through sites and shady. Cable TV had limited channels, internet was fine and we were at the back of the lot. Water and electric were fine. There is a small store, and a nice clean laundry. Very accessible to Wal-Mart, Cabelas, and a Whiskey Creek restaurant. Right next to I-90, but surprisingly, not that noisy. A train track right behind the grounds, but only one train ran late afternoon and it did not blow a horn. Great for a night or two, not much more. I would stay again if in area.
