Rate does not include electricity which is rated. Very nice, very clean, spacious lots. The view of the Caballo Mountains and Lake is wonderful. Close drive to Truth or Consequences and Elephant Butte. Park has dog run, happy hour every night between 4:30 & 6:30 p.m. Owner very nice. We would come back here if in the area. Very pleased with park, very quiet. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is nightly, but only $150 per month plus electric. We enjoyed our stay very much. As others have stated, nice happy hour each evening hosted by park's owner. Very friendly, helpful people here. Beautiful view of Caballo Lake. The only minor ding is the lack of nearby services such as grocery stores, laundry, etc. which are available in Truth or Consequences. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of attractions of historic interest. Ask the owner for recommendations pertaining to your particular interests. She is a wealth of information which she loves to share.

This RV park is a gem. The sites are immaculately clean and the view of Caballo Lake and the Sierra de Los Caballos (mountains of the horses) from the park is fantastic. A very friendly park. Most likely you will meet new friends at the daily Happy Hour (BYOB) getting to know your neighbors. Good to know many have stayed here before and come back time and time again. Rate is nightly, but at $150 per month + electric it's the best deal in town. Good Wi-Fi and quiet, some road noise but no trains. Would stay again, and plan to in the future. I originally planned a 4 night stop-over but stayed 6 weeks in March/April. It's that nice. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to tour historic Chloride - a classic, Old West ghost town nearby, if time permits. Ask park owner about tours. City of Truth or Consequences is 16 miles north and offers dining, shopping, etc.

They have done a wonderful job of creating a homey environment for travelers. Nightly happy hour to exchange ideas and personal check-in make you feel welcome. No showers or bathrooms... no problem. Great view of the lake. We will stay here again. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here to get off the road on a windy day. What a find. Nice level sites and good hook ups. Easy off and on from I-25. Some of the nicest people we ever meet on the road. Happy hour was great. We felt like we were part of the family. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a gem. The view of the lake and Mountains from the park was fantastic. I could sit there for hours. Very friendly park, I mean everyone. Happy Hour was getting to know your neighbors. Would stay again, and will in the future. This time it will be more than a overnight. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice campground, not far off the interstate and easy to access. Quiet, no trains. It is such a nice place to stay. Gravel sites but level and nice. Picnic tables at every site. The service was 30 and 50 amps, water & sewer, but electric is extra. You pay $15.00 per night plus 12 cents for electric per kilowatt. The best part about this campground is the owner. She is very nice and loves to visit and make your stay a nice one. We will return to this campground if we are in the area again - definitely. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very small park but the clean and the price is right $15.00 a night plus electric which was minimal. Happy hour every day and the owner is so nice and inviting. Our rig is pretty big so it was barely able to fit in the spaces. Couldn't find a bath or shower room, So maybe isn't one. We were in and out but would stop again, the area is beautiful.

This is the daily rate; you will have to add a small county tax and electricity. Unfortunately our GPS did not recognize the RV Park by name or the specific address. This was true for the local post office also. So once you exit I-25 you will need to watch closely for the entrance sign and the yellow ‘happy face’ flag. Prepare for the 90 degree turn; there is plenty of room to swing wide; watch for oncoming traffic. The owner was very friendly; we enjoyed her company at the daily happy hour. The roads and sites are gravel and some are on a bit of a slope. Utilities worked well; water pressure was OK. There were no trains and we didn't notice the highway noise. Verizon worked fine; Sprint was spotty. Great access to the lake and the hiking trails in the state park. It is peaceful here and we enjoyed sitting out at night watching the stars and see the moon rise. No problem with staying here again. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great little campground, not far off the interstate and easy to access. The best part about this campground is Lake Caballo and the mountains. Site was level dirt with plenty of room for slides and awning, picnic table and divided from neighbors by rocks. Some trees are growing but don't provide much shade yet. The service was 50 amps, water & sewer but electric is extra. Verizon cell and hotspot were strong and satellite was good. I couldn't pull in any local stations via the antenna. There are no public services, bathroom, shower, laundry and no other amenities. The owner hosts a cocktail hour every night, BYOB and she supplies the snacks. CJ is friendly and helpful. I would rate this campground higher if public services were available. I will return to this campground if in the area again. We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped here last fall and came back because it is such a nice place to stay. Gravel sites but level and nice. Picnic tables at every site. View of Caballo Lake and nice walk down to the water. We walk our dogs down to the lake too! At 4:30 every day is a happy hour if you choose to join and bring a snack if so inclined. We visit and enjoy the sunset on the mountain above Caballo Lake every evening at Happy Hour. No problem with electric, water or sewer all in great working condition. Small park just north of the Caballo State Park entrance. The owner and very nice and loves to visit and make your stay a nice one. They have no laundry, pool etc, but it is a very relaxing place to stop and stay. Can handle big rigs as we are 42 and pulling a truck. We disconnect and park next to rig. We go into town and relax at the hot springs or eat some of the best Mexican food in town that you will ever get. You pay 12 cents for electric per kwh plus the rate of $15.00 per night. NO big deal as it is still a bargain. Owner fixed Easter dinner and invited all of us to dinner at her expense this Easter. Great meal, great owner! We camped at Caballo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

In general this is a nice park close to Caballo Lake (about half mile to the lake through BLM land). It’s very basic, full hook-ups, all pull-through sites, free Wi-Fi (which works) and it is clean and well-maintained. There are no facilities at all. No restrooms, etc. The owner is lovely and has a happy hour every night. You pay for electric, even the daily rate, which will run about $1-$2, depending on use.
