1 Park near Churchrock, New Mexico
Dec 2015 - $20.00
We found this city park during our trip to AZ for the winter. We usually stay overnight at Walmarts, but this park looked decent and was easy access from I40. What a great find (and WAY better than a Walmart parking lot????). We were going to just spend one night, but the hiking looked too good to pass up, so we stayed an extra day. Beautiful hiking trail amongst the red rock hills, very peaceful and quiet. Some of the trail is close to an edge with a significant drop off, so use caution if hiking with dogs (or children). The park itself used to be a state park but now is run by the city of Gallup. A city employee comes by every evening to collect the fees. Not that we wanted to use the bathrooms in the park, but they were locked and we were not given a key. Sites are decently flat, but all sand, as is the rest of the park. Not a problem during our stay, but if windy or raining, it could cause problems. Picknik table with concrete pad underneath and a grill/fire pit at most sites. Decent, quiet park if you need a place to stay in the area. - Jerry and Betsy

50 amp site, W/E. Flat site on sand. Good Verizon and Direct TV coverage. Very nice little town park. Will stay here again. - Deniselg53

We enjoyed this park. We arrived on a Wednesday after the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta so there were about 15 RV's in the park. The sites are all dirt but level with a picnic table (pretty old and used), a cement pad and 50/30/20 amp electric service with water. There are 2 dumps - and we used the one closest to the campground. It was a huge cement pad with 2 dumps.
We got there about 4:00, after the office was closed so found a spot under some trees, hooked up and waited for the camp ranger to roll around and we paid then. She gave us some maps of the area, a nice park brochure and a nice booklet about Gallup itself.
We were extremely lucky when 2 balloons took off one of the mornings we were there. We volunteered to help them launch and they told us to hop in. Wow. We got an hour long ride over the Red Rocks. What a thrill and so unexpected.
We got a key to the restroom from the ranger. They were clean but old.
A nice park and I'll agree with others that it was a hidden gem but it could be dusty in the wind. Verizon worked but there was no over-the-air TV. - swike
