This park is in Artesia proper and is reasonably typical of parks in the west; short on grass, but high on hospitality. Unbeknown to us, the area is inundated with oil workers that are using any available space to park a "portable house" so that they can work the fields. The park juggled their spaces and managed to get us a site for a couple of nights. Wonderful staff, good park (if you don't need a lot of trees), level sites and good utilities (adequate water pressure, stable electric and good clean sewer hookups). If you are going through the area (Texas, southern New Mexico, etc.) I recommend getting reservations ahead of time. I knew that fracking in the northern tier of states was putting a bind on available campsites, but, apparently the same is going on in the southwest. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

They held a pull thru for us after trying to get a site in Carlsbad (all full). Very nice and helpful. Just like all the campgrounds around this region most are full of oilfield workers but was not a problem the camp was clean, neat and quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

Large clean sites with cable. We stayed one night on our way to Santa Fe. It is a full timers RV park with just a few sites available for the traveler. Make sure to call for reservations. Staff very friendly and helpful. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly management, good gravel, some grass, some trees. Long-term folks keep their sites nice. Full hook-ups worked well. Missed having a picnic table, but managed without. After talking to a couple of folks, found out that anywhere in this region where there is pipeline or oil patch work, you should always make a reservation for a spot. We wanted something halfway between Roswell and Carlsbad, as we were seeing caverns, but didn't want to take 2-lane roads west. We would stay here again. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lots of gravel here, but plenty of grass and shade trees as well: a real bonus in the desert. Our site was quiet and had the feeling of privacy even though the park was quite busy. An hour from Roswell, and an hour to Carlsbad Caverns as well, made this a very convenient place for three nights. Office staff was friendly and helpful. There seemed to be a fair number of residents at this park, but there were no issues whatsoever and their sites were well kept. We'd stay here again if the aliens come back!

Campground is mostly for permanent renters. The WiFi was not good; very spotty. This park was all gravel with no dust. It is a good overnight stay. The office staff were very friendly. We stayed here two nights, The Carlsbad caverns were 62 miles away. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. Very quiet, and centrally located between Carlsbad Caverns and Roswell. The sites are gravel, but mostly level. No shade, although trees have been planted for future shady spots. There are no picnic tables, which we missed. The sites are very wide and long. This is a refinery town, so expect many oil patch residents, although they are very quiet, and keep their sites very clean: no trash anywhere. We would stay here again if in the area.

Initial contact was with very friendly staff personnel via telephone. Easy to find, very easy access for any size rig. Wide open park covered in thick grey (slate?) gravel. Site easy to locate, well marked. Our pull-through was long enough for 37 foot motorhome with toad and wide enough to park toad when unhooked. Our site was one of a few that had enough grass to make the dog happy. Plenty of trash dumpsters throughout the park and easy to access. Majority of sites are full timers probably working in the oil/gas industry, but all units were well kept. No strays except occasional feral cat. Quiet stopover resulting in a couple of good nights sleep. Only problem were excessive high winds, but that's NM. And the Wi-Fi signal was weak at our site, number 122, however the Verizon access card worked well. Rate reflects one night of Passport America discount. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

I lived at the Artesia RV Park since 2007. I have never found dirty bathrooms, laundry rooms or showers. This is a very quiet, clean park and animal friendly. I moved here when the first owner was here. He was very nice and worked hard to keep the park going. The new owners are even nicer. They are helpful and keep the park immaculate. When I had water line problems the new owner pitched right in and thawed the line and added heat tape. When my car wouldn't start the new owner jumped the battery and when I purchased a new battery he put it in for me! I highly recommend this park. I will surely miss living here.

Seemingly Under New Management. Park was clean, quiet,and friendly. Monthly rate was $300 and electric was $.10 kwh - No trash anywhere, cable TV and Wi-Fi was good and furnished free. This place is better than other parks I've visited and I felt good about the park, and the respectable pricing. Carlsbad parks are higher and dirtier except for the one that's $300 and always full! I will stay here again when I'm in the area. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I would like to say right up front that this is a wonderful RV park. The new owners and staff are very friendly and well informed and helpful. The park is always well maintained and quiet. The restrooms are well maintained and spotless. The Wi-Fi is 10x faster than at other parks we have stayed at. The town is a quiet urban town,s o not a lot of stuff going on at night. It gives you that peaceful feeling, like old time small towns. We would stay here whenever we are in the area and be glad we did. Please check it out for yourself, you will be glad you did.

We stayed here for 6 months while working in Artesia. When we first arrived in late 2010, this RV park was the best, albeit priciest option in Artesia, mainly because of the amenities, cleanliness and friendly, professional staff. After a change in ownership near the end of 2010, there was a notable decline in nearly everything. The grounds, which had been meticulously maintained, now had litter accumulating and constantly blowing around, dog waste left on every grassy spot, and the gravel, once groomed on a weekly basis, was left to rut and pile unevenly, causing difficulties driving and walking in spots. The bathrooms, which had been spotless, were suddenly left grimy for days, even weeks at a time and mildew was allowed to grow. The Wi-Fi coverage and speed decreased and we were no longer allowed to connect all of our devices (3). Wonderfully courteous and professional staff who had been here for years were replaced with others who vacillated between borderline rudeness and inappropriate "friendliness." Artesia itself is no picnic, for the reasons other reviewers have mentioned, as well as a smelly, noisy refinery, and with the decline in this park's quality. You are better off heading to another location (Roswell and Carlsbad are less than an hour's drive away in opposite directions) if at all possible. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

Just your average urban RV park with quite a few permanent residents, but well-maintained and fairly quiet although we weren't far from the highway or the railroad. No pecan harvesting at this time of the year! The Wi-Fi required a login and the manager would only provide one code for free (we carry two laptops) but that was not a big problem. For anyone headed west toward Cloudcroft and down to Alamogordo, the signs state "Trucks over 11 tons without engine retarders are prohibited." There is 14 miles of 6% downhill grade there...we weigh about 11 tons and have a gas engine...we made it down safely but was locked in second gear pretty much the whole way. Would not recommend trying to go UPHILL without lots of stops. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

I don't understand any of the other reviews! This place is NOT a place you want to stay more than you have to! The people working here were nice and the facilities were clean and kept up, but that is about it! I feel so sorry for the people that reviewed this place and said that it was the nicest place that they have stayed in! The town is extremely small and everything closes up quite early and since it is a dry county, most restaurants close also on Sun. if they serve alcohol. The park is 90% full time residents, but is very quiet. It is quite windy here most of the time. There is a pecan orchard next to the park which is nice, but they were harvesting the nuts and it was quite noisy 2 of the days that we were here. We were here over Thanksgiving because our son was here in training, otherwise we would NOT recommend this place. But it is an OK place to stop for the night. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly grounds manager. Gave Good Sam discount. The park is clean and well-maintained, but it is all gravel, with just a small strip of green space beside each site and in the center. We had a bit of difficulty leveling the trailer. The gravel kept slipping under the jacks, even with the blocks we use. There is absolutely no shade and with temps in the high 90s, it took a while for the a/c to take hold. A good park for passing through, although there seemed to be a lot of long-termers. In a few years when the saplings they've planted have time to grow, this park will be much more inviting. Good WiFi and cell reception. We camped at Artesia RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
