19 Parks near Cerro, New Mexico
Oct 2014 - $4.00
The actual rate was $3.50 per night, which reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount. This is not a campground you will happen across, but if you do go to the trouble to find it, you will be rewarded. The 13 mile drive from highway 522 is slow but is easy and all on paved roads. Do study the directions on the website as your GPS may take you on a "shortcut" down a gravel road. The campgrounds are laid out on short gravel spurs off of a 6 mile paved loop road. You will want to stop at the fee/information station as you enter the site. The map you will get is critical to being able to find your way around. In terms of sites suitable for RVs, there are 5 areas. They are as follows : El Aquaje with 7 campsites, La Junta with no campsites except a handicap site, Montoso with 4 campsites, Little Arsenic Springs with 6 campsites, Big Arsenic Springs with 6 campsites. Many of the sites are fairly unlevel, but they are all well-separated and beautiful. This is really a campground for smaller RVs. There is fresh water for filling a tank, but there is no RV dump. There are vault toilets. There are no campsites that can be reserved. There is a Visitor Center that is open during the prime season and when staff is available during the off-season. There are great hiking and biking trails. Our Verizon phone worked well. Our Verizon data worked most of the time if we used our booster. This is certainly a campground we will return to. - TheJim

Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $7. Pit toilets, no hookups, but threaded faucets scattered throughout campground. Sites level and very widely spaced. It's a 13 mile drive from highway 522 to the campground areas (there are several, but each just has a handful of sites) but it is paved all the way. Roads in the campgrounds themselves are gravel, but mostly in decent shape. Some were washboard. Campground elevation is 7500 feet. Scenic views abound. Sites have sheltered, covered picnic tables. Taking into consideration that this is a boon docking campground, it still deserves a full 10 star rating, due to the fine views, excellent hiking trails, and huge spacing between sites. - HercMaster

This is a very nice Campground in the Kit Carson National Forest. Located on New Mexico State Highway 38 about 3 miles west of Red River NM at an elevation of nearly 8,600 on the GPS. With paved interior roads, it has four sites with level concrete pads. The remaining 16 sites have paved asphalt parking areas for RV's with their tables and fire rings adjacent in the dirt. About 3/4's of the sites can accommodate big rigs and long fifth wheels. Each site has a campfire grill and a picnic table. Water is available at several locations. Most of the camp sites are 50 to 80 feet from the other sites and masked by trees. Sites are nestled amidst large Ponderosa pines and Aspens. With our Golden Age Pass we paid $7.50 per night. Definitely a campground to come back to. Full on weekends with space usually available during the weekdays: at least that's what the camp host said. - happyflyer

This is a great national forest campground with level concrete pads at each site. It has campfire grill and a picnic table on a paved patio at each site. Water is available at several locations. Each site is 70-80 feet from the other and masked by trees. The campground was spotless and the air was clean and fresh. Sites are nestled amidst large Ponderosa pines and Aspens. Why anyone would camp in a side by side RV park in Red River when this is available is beyond reason. - JWT

Located close to town and has a beautiful view and Red River flows right through the park, there is a nice pond stocked with trout for fishing. Wifi and cell service is poor. Satalite TV worked well.
This campground needs serious drainage work to the sites and roads! Granted it rains in the afternoons often, but we have stayed in many rainey areas with no problems. This is nothing but an absolute mud hole, our site was covered with two inches of water. After complaining to the owner he got a shovel and tried to hand dig a drainage rut. Refused to move us and no offer of a reduction in rate.
Will will not stay here again. Beautiful area but the grounds are awful! - Jackie thornton

This park is in dire need of interior road and infrastructure maintenance. We were moved from one site due to a water pipeline failure and one of our party suffered a blowout due to a sharp rock in one of the interior roads. The owner's violate their own rules and allow tent camping on RV sites. We would not stay here again. - Altoflyfisher

Still really like this park and the staff. The 8 comes from what the weather left. Had rain all week and the drainage around the site was almost nonexistent. Mud everywhere. I feel certain that when I come back next year for the Motorcycle Rally, the staff will have fixed that problem. - ray brooks

Owners/operators are very friendly and helpful. Park is within walking distance to town and right off of highway which can be noisy during the day, but quiets down at night. Not fancy, but the area is level, and bathrooms were clean. The best part is the fishing right out the door of your RV in the stream that runs along the park edge. Make sure your plans are firm, the $50 deposit is non-refundable. Wi-Fi is spotty at times. - Kevin & Liz

This RV park is a gravel parking lot with hookups on the edges. There is a nice stream the runs by it. The internet never worked and when the camp hosts were told they did not seem to care. The trash bins are not within the RV park. You have to walk out of the park to throw away trash. Red River the town is really nice. It is in a beautiful valley. - Yuma

Office/management staff is very friendly and helpful. The park is very small and camp sights are fairly narrow with very little shading. The park is next to the main road through town, and is very noisy during the daytime, however, it does quite down overnight. Our cable box didn't work during our stay and the WiFi was adequate. We did not use the restrooms or showers. There is a $2 per person charge for showers. - Kevin & Liz

Road Runner in the best place in Red River to stay. Very friendly staff and camp host. Pretty close to downtown area but still far enough away. We stayed in the adult only section. The only drawback to that was not being able to have a campfire. But safety first and I kind of understand why. Rest rooms were clean and a good walk from the upper section. I did not mind the walk and got to meet a lot of campers on the way. We will definitely stay here on our return trip but will try to get a campsite on the lower section by the river. - Musickman911

Beautiful park in a beautiful place. Nice sites, quiet and good quality rv park. Only downsides were very poor Wi-Fi, good strength just doesn't work 85% of time. Also they charge $5 per day for extra vehicles, but that includes motorcycles with no extra trailers or space. We have what amounts to a cruiser lift on the back of our rig, the bike fit well within the space and they still charged extra.... Not sure why that would be necessary. - Lookinforeden

We really enjoyed this RV park and the surrounding areas. Our site was in the "adult only" loop with very few other campers, so it was quiet, restful, and scenic. Children and campfires were not permitted in our loop, and since they both can occasionally be disturbing to folks our age, we were delighted with these rules. The lower loops do not have these restrictions. There is a nice dog run, plenty of activities for kids, but no swimming pool. The tennis court is a nice but seldom used facility. Many of the sites are not level, so be prepared to make adjustments. Our loop appeared to have significantly more room at each site and between sites. WIFI and cable TV were reliable during our stay. Utilities were well placed and worked without any problems. Be careful navigating the interior roads as they are narrow with sharp turns and big trees in some places. These roads are smooth and paved, however. We stayed 5 nights and will stay here again when in the Red River area. Management is efficient, very friendly and supportive. - Scott & Nancy

If it weren’t for our GPS, we never would have found this campground. The signs out on the highway are very small and easily missed. The entrance is also the exit. It's very narrow and if you're coming in when someone else is coming out, one of you is going to have to back up. The pull-thru we had was big and level, but some of the back-ins would be difficult to get into. There are some sites along the river that probably flood out during the spring snow melt. The laundry has three washers ($2) and three dryers ($2), but one of the dryers was out of order, the rubber gasket around the door of another one was falling off, and the gasket on the other was completely gone. The owners seem more concerned with adding unnecessary things, such as a gazebo, than in taking care of the things that are already there. There was no over-the-air tv reception and no cable, however they did offer to set up a satellite connection if you asked. If we're ever in this area again, we won't stay here. - mrpeepers

This campground is in a pleasant site along the Red River. The sites are level but are poorly marked and many are hard to get into. The owners are working hard to create new amenities,but are neglecting basic daily maintenance. There was trash scattered over our sites. The restrooms and showers were not cleaned, not even once in our 10 day stay. This was gross. - tetonbjb

This a nice park; still improving. Our site was level and the utilities convenient. Electrical service was fine but use a regulator for water. It is quiet once the owners stop working sometimes at dusk. It is at the foot of the mountains although the drive to Taos (20 miles) is a plateau. Restrooms/showers are convenient and clean, however, shower area has no curtained or walled changing area and would be visible from the open door. Questa has very limited services but Taos has everything including traffic congestion (go with the flow and be patient). Take the loop drive through Red river to Angel Fire to Taos. Stop for tamales. Rate is unadvertised PA weekly. - gumper

Wonderful place to camp. Our site had a covered picnic table area, fire ring and grill. There are several hiking and biking trails in the park. If you don't like being remote or possibly being the only people around in a very quiet area, you probably won't care for this place. There are only vault toilets (clean) and no showers. There is water available but not at the sites. Our site had million dollar views for $7.00 a night. - Zdog

One of the most beautiful spots in Northern New Mexico at the confluence of the Rio Grande and Red Rivers on BLM developed facility. Outstanding bicycle/hiking area. Very few amenities but there is water and restrooms available along with picnic tables and grills. Visitor center is well stocked with maps and experts on local animals and geology. If you like remote but accessible this is it. - taoshum

Our RV club enjoyed a 6 night rally here in June. Staff are all very friendly and accommodating. Sites are mostly level but are in some cases a bit more close than we prefer. Camp store is well equipped with necessities and gift items and campground has a weekly list of activities in which you can participate. There is an on-site chuckwagon serving breakfast and lunch items for sale. Bath and shower facilities are nice and well maintained. - G and G from ABQ

We got to Eagle Nest after dark on Dec 30. We were headed to Angel Fire but decided not to take a chance on the road since they had received snow that day. We called ahead and the owner was waiting out front in the frigid temps to help direct us into the park. He helped us get situated in our campsite. We went inside where we met his wife. It was like meeting old friends. They were so nice and just wanted to help. They invited us to the New Year's Eve potluck social the next night. They also told us they would have pastries and coffee at 9 the next morning there in the store/common area. We went for coffee and met another nice couple that were from west of Denver. Super nice folks also.
Bruce suggested a scenic drive for the day. We decided to stay here instead of going to the Angel Fire campground.
We attended the social on New Year's Eve and met some nice people from the town. By the time we left, we felt like we were leaving family. If you need anything, all you have to do is ask. They will do their best to help.
We definitely plan to go back to see our friends.

Basic park. Right on highway so easy on/off access. Hookups were convenient. Very few trees so good line of sight for roof mounted satellite dish. Site was fairly level. - Bob & Jo
