4 Parks near Caballo, New Mexico

Excellent place to park an RV!
CJ (the owner/operator) keeps a very clean and neat RV park. She makes sure that it's quiet w/ no riff-raff. CJ loves people - and it shows. She has a "happy hour" every afternoon, 4:30-6 and puts out snacks that she purchases or makes.
The nightly prices stay low by charging for electricity separately. We were there for 4 nights during 90+ degree days. We ran our AC's 24 hrs a day. Total electricity - $18.72 for 4 days. This brought our nightly cost to a little over $21 (including taxes.)
There is an enclosed gravel dog area. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag).
WiFi is good here but there is no cable. Air channels are fair-good. - User3146

We are snowbirds and visited Caballo Lake RV Park on our way from AZ to WI on June 3, 2015. This park is a well kept very quiet park with 19 full hookup, 30/50 amp, pull throughs, able to handle large rigs. The cost was only $15 per night with electric charged by separate meter when you leave. It is very conveniently located just off of I-25 between Truth or Consequences and Deming, NM. It does not offer a store, laundry, or bathrooms (which people have in their own rigs). It does have a magnificent view of Lake Caballo and the mountains behind. It does have an area set up with outdoor games and a fenced dog walking area. We understand it borders the state park and has a path right into the state park. We were very pleasantly surprised by the owner who hosts a happy hour every day on her scenic shaded patio or in her home from 4:30 until 6. She is a most gracious and interesting host and even puts out her own appetizers. She had about 20 comfortable rockers with drink tables and cocktail tables conveniently placed for everyone to visit in a circle. We were able to visit with some long term residents, a couple from England, and a couple returning from Mexico who had started an orphanage there. What an interesting happy hour! We didn't have time to participate, but hear that she offers free tours of the attractions in the area. We hope to include this RV Park in our future trips to and from AZ and to take in some of the attractions like Shattuck Vineyard, the classic old west ghost town of Chloride, New Mexico's Hot Springs, the Geronimo Springs Museum, some gold panning, and the many other historic and scenic attractions of the area. We hope to make our stops several days long.
We highly recommend this unique park. We hope that you, too, will be very pleasantly surprised. - Pat W.

This is a ruggedly beautiful park with views of the lake below and mountains above. We stayed in the Palamino area which is full hook up, in a site overlooking the lake. The view of the sunset was spectacular from our campsite. There were only 3 out of the 7 sites occupied so had no trouble maneuvering our motorhome in and out of the site but if the area is full, you may have to unhook your tow vehicle to make the turn to get out. We glanced at the other two camp "circles" in this park and all campsites appear to have their own covered cabana that has stone half walls, a picnic table and roof to keep the sun out. Very nice touch. There is also swimming and fishing available down at the piers and beach below the campsites. We would definitely come here again for a longer stay. - Nautical Wheelers

We made reservations here based on good reviews from other campers. When we arrived, we were surprised to find that our spot was basically the size of a two-car driveway, backing to a field of weeds and having a view and noise of the freeway (I-25). All RV spots are out in the open--no privacy between spots. We also noticed and heard large groups setting up tents in the non-camping area. We decided to leave and head to another campground. We were unable to get a refund as we had already checked in for the night. I would only recommend if you need a very quick overnight stop. - SNWP

What a well kept secret! The park looks out over BLM land and Caballo Lake. There are lots of shade trees, excellent laundry, good Wi-Fi and several antenna TV stations. The store has a respectable supply of groceries and necessities and they fill propane tanks. A very quiet park in spite of being close to the Interstate. We heard no traffic noise. A great place to camp and explore the area. We will be back. - Jan and Larry

Beautiful shaded sites. Although the campground is on the Rio Grande River, this section of the river was almost dry when we were there. Lots of birds to see, though. - morsev

This is a riparian zone campground near the Rio Grande with spacious shaded pull-through sites for an RV. Access roads are gravel based and the level sites are gravel. Each site has a ramada and table. At the entrance to the park there is a bridge with a 15 ton limit. The sites on the right are reservable and the sites to the left are first come first serve sites. Sites one through six have 50 Amp and rest are 30 Amp. There is no sewage connection and there is no dump station located at the campground. Trees are present and at some sites satellite TV could be blocked by the trees. We had no problems with getting Direct TV at our site. All of the electric sites are away from the river. During our stay we could hear the river going over the dam. Some of the non-electric sites are near or adjacent to the river. I would not recommend placing a big rig at those sites. The one opened restroom is shared by all. It was clean for us on a weekday. The park seems to be neglected by the staff and they are often not present. The big plus here are the birds. This is a prime New Mexico birding site and we were not disappointed. There is a wide variety and they are plentiful. We stayed here for two nights and will return. - James Barr
