17 Parks near Caballo, New Mexico
Mar 2014 - $18.00
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

This is another New Mexico State Park gradually showing signs of neglect. The staff, when present if at all, are getting lazy. The 15 reservation sites were empty each night and the online reservation web site clearly indicated all 15 sites to be available for one night at a time. Yet the staff fails to flip over the site's reservation marker.
Just the same we stayed over night in one of the reservation sites. This becomes a necessity because rift raft types hang out for extended periods in the south part of the loop. Campground roads are mostly dirt and become muddy following a rain. Many of the cottonwoods and pine trees have died. Plenty of trash gets littered by people who are fishing and most of the trash looks like it been in place for months.
Staff likes to hang-out in some sort of utility room at the restroom. They do this instead of opening up the visitor center and office. Despite the short comings, this is a great place to bird watch and to enjoy the sounds of the Rio Grande. There is no sewage dump station available here. - James Barr

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

The flies were bad this year. The park is well maintained by the current camp host and crew - hotpepperkid

My husband and I had been planning on visiting this RV park for several months. The website shows the lake being much closer to the RV park and when we arrived we were very disappointed to see the lake was quite far away. The owner stated we could walk to the lake but we'd have to watch out for snakes, including rattlesnakes. I estimated it was about a 1/2 mile walk to the lake. The owner started to seem irritated with us right away because we were expecting the lake to be close by so we could fish and swim. My husband asked if there was a beach area where we could swim and and the owner stated that "if we wanted a beach we should go to Galveston!" Despite her rudeness we were going to stay but changed our minds as she became more agitated with us. I would hate to see how she acted at the "Happy Hour" they have every evening! She said there were lots of rattlesnakes in the park and they had killed several in the past week. She also stated that we should not walk our pet on a leash because wild pigs and coyotes come into the park and if they didn't get our pet, the eagles would get them. She said a visitor had picked up a toy on the ground and there was a baby rattlesnake under it! The park itself is very nice looking but I would not recommend staying here due to the rude owner. I had read some other reviews on this park and other's had commented on how rude she was. We have stayed in many RV Parks and never have encountered a host who was so unfriendly. There is also no shade in the park so it can be very hot. As for Wi-Fi, after we had parked our rig, she stated that we "might" get Wi-Fi in that spot. So we moved to another space and she said we might get it there! We'd had enough so my husband told her we were not going to stay and she said "if you want a beach, go to Tahiti or the west coast!" Those "happy hours" they have every evening must be a real hoot with this rude woman as host. Take my advice and STAY AWAY from this place! - Sunshine Larson

This is a rather good place to stay, adjacent to a lake, during the week days. The campgrounds tend to be noisy and crowded on the weekends by boaters and family groups. RV campers tend to occupy the non-reservation sites and the reservation sites are primarily unoccupied and available for one night at a time. Supposedly, one night at a time.
The office staff becomes highly irritated when a camper wants to stay in a reservation site without a reservation. The staff fails to indicate, which sites are available. So much easier to stay in the air conditioned office and fool arrivals the reservation sites are occupied. Still, overall, an enjoyable place to stay with excellent views of the mountains, and quiet sounds of an isolated location off I-25. - James Barr

No paved roads, no amenities, just one of the best parks we have stayed it because its uniqueness. It's a small park in the middle of nowhere where the owner has flowers, fountains, every rock outlining the sites in perfect place and a personality that doesn't quit. And then a cocktail hour every night...even it rains she invites people into her house. And she will tell you she finally raised the rate to $15. a night after everybody said her rates were too low. We will definitely be back for a longer stay next time. - Trek Across America

Super nice state park. Clean, well-kept, new trees planted. Sites are large and nicely spaced. Some sites are considerably longer than others, but we still were able to leave our tow car connected to a 38' Class A and didn't have to unhitch.
Nice lake and mountain views, and very relaxing. - ziaptrn

A really great place for a one night stop over and possibly longer if the park is not crowded. Easy pull through sites and relatively clean throughout. - gadabout80

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

If you're looking for a resort, don't stay here. If you're looking for a safe place to stop, clean restrooms and a reasonable price, this is it. Minimal shade, New Mexico gravel everywhere, but great location right in the town. Will stay here again. - ldukeb

Easy overnight stop heading south on I-25. Good pull through and helpful owner. We'd stop again if passing by. Small basic park, so don't expect frills. - gardener

This is a small but quite nice park that appeared well maintained. There are a few permanent residents as there are with most parks this size. We were a little worried that our 36' RV would not fit but, they had a spot that was easy to get in and out of. I was quite surprised when the owner/manager came out to guide us in. Before I knew it, he had provided a water hose, sewer hose support and hooked up the cable TV. The restrooms/showers were very clean and well maintained. My only complaint was that the site we were put only had 30A power. Other sites may have had 50A service but, ours didn't. I would recommend this campground to anyone staying at or passing through the Truth or Consequences/Williamsburg area. - Clayhammer

Stayed overnight. We were lead to a level site in the back of the park. Good hook-ups. WiFi was OK. Very friendly and helpful staff. - DickO

This is our second time staying here for one night. We guided to a pull through that is level with 50 amp electric, water, and sewer
We want a level, easy to hook up, quiet, and where we feel safe when we are staying one night while travelling. This place has all of those things. - skigramp

Pros: This park is sparse but very clean. Even the permanent resident's sites are spotless. The clubhouse and laundry are also very nice. Office staff was super.
Cons: Water hookups are sunken and difficult to access. Cable was weak. Wifi was fair but usable. My biggest complaint is the site we were given, same as a previous reviewer. The pull through sites are "nose to tail". My door opened to the road, so I had to look before opening the door or stepping out. There are two "lanes" of these sites, so vehicles were driving on both sides of us and rigs parked in front and behind, so that there is no way to put out an awning, chairs, or bbq. I would not come here again, driving through TorC, there are better choices. - leo96150

As the previous reviewer stated the Park itself is not a destination. The Park is older, yet has a small hardware store and a laundromat and a bottomless coffee pot in a 'Rec-room'. Hatch, (Chili Capitol of the World), is 20 miles South and Truth or Consequences is 20 miles North. Cabillo Lake is only a mile and a quarter away, Elephant Butte is 24 miles North. Quite a few folks stop here to prospect of gold and other minerals in the Cabillo Mountains. The owner's even have a claim that they allow guests to hunt upon. Is excellent Winter Quarters for some and year round for some others. - hank h

New Mexico is filled with wonderful places to explore. This tiny park is central to Southern New Mexico and close to White Sands National Park, the Sacramento Mountains, Caballo Reservoir, Indian ruins, the new space port, Truth or Consequences and more. The park itself is definitely not a destination. The majority of the park is filled with long-term residents. A separate area in the front is for over nighters. The laundry room is spacious and clean. There are no restrooms or showers. Internet is strong, but local TV channels are non-existent. Each site has a covered ramada with picnic table. Don't come here for the amenities; come for the low rates and convenience to other state activities. - rfmscat

We were only going to stay for one week, but once we got there, we stayed several months especially after finding all the hot springs. We were on the top tier which was great for the view and to get out of the NM wind during the Winter. It was very peaceful here. We found everything to be in good working order. This is by far the best place in TorC. You can walk into town, but note you are on a hill. The water hook ups are a little cumbersome but doable. They read the meter when you stay monthly - $0.17/KW. The owner keeps a good watch on the park. There are long term residents here (like the other parks), but they keep to themselves. The owner tries to keep the rigs separated unless she is really busy, so you don't feel like you're right on top of each other. The spacing is above average between the rigs too. No picnic table at our site. The sites "up top" were all pull-through. - 2Fliers

Stayed 2 nights because we like the view from up on the hill. - TravelingMimi579

Loved the site we were given. It was on their "third level" and looked out on the city below. All the hookups worked well, including cable. The gravel sites are extremely wide so that you're not close to anyone. Loved that! Would stay here again. - frmOregon

It has been 5 years since we last visited this terrific soaking spot along the Rio Grande. Much improved as the owner continues to add amenities to the site. The RV park is directly across the road with convenient access to brand-new bathrooms for men, women, family.
The owner is preparing for the Hot Springs Festival this coming weekend; three newly added soaking pools, including a larger one that's ADA compliant for wheelchairs access, plus a sauna. All the designs are southwestern and quite beautiful. A resident artist is adding paintings and murals that fit nicely in the setting. Other artwork and fountains add value.
And the ambiance is peaceful, with a 'whisper-only' zone around the pools, while the evening lighting is subdued.
Fast WiFi at the site, too.
What's not to like?! - SouthYubaBill

If you're looking for a break from state park or standard RV park camping, this is a place to go. For $55/night, you get all of the "public" hot springs soaking you can stand and a full-service hookup. The Wi-Fi is fast enough for movie watching, TorC is a great little town and almost everything in town is walking distance from Riverbend. You can even get breakfast delivered to the campground if you order early enough. This is one of the most beautiful places in southern New Mexico. The campsites are small and a little crowded, but you do have a picnic table in each site and you'll be spending most of your time in the resort anyway. The resort provides a nice gas barbecue for residents' use, a wonderful patio area with an awning, gas fireplace, and outdoor heaters in the winter, and the Rio Grande views from the public, private, and deck are amazing. Check in is 3 PM and they do not take reservations for the campsites; first come, first serve. Check out is "11-ish." - TW Day

I did not actually stay here. I was taken aback by the high price. Sure it includes soaking, which would normally cost $10. an hour. How many hours would a single person use? 2 or 3? That puts the RV site at 25-35. For a gravel parking lot. I went 2 blocks away and stayed at a slightly funky place for $15. a night. I could walk to 5 hot springs, several restaurants and the grocery store. - Shezonit
