The park is older & is a retired State Park now a City of Gallup, New Mexico, Park. This is a very neat beautifully scenic red rock park. It was hard to leave this park after 9 days or so because it was very relaxed & beautiful, a hidden treasure without enough reviews--because I had never heard of it & may never have gone if I hadn't been tired & just ended up here. Beautiful location. There are certain spots at the Church Rock Trail side that have extreme wind. This can stir up a lot of fine sand. The staff is generous. A hidden treasure type of park. Older, but a very beautiful, magical, treasured location. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The rock formations, Church Rock & Pyramid Rock, are amazing & healthy treasured hikes. There is an interesting small museum & plenty of good walking areas

Rate is nightly for electric (50/30/20 amp) and water. The restrooms/showers closest to where we were parked were locked during the two days we were there. Directions listed on the website are reversed for traveling east and west on I-40. Use exit 33 if traveling west on I-40. Easy access and big rig friendly. Signs at the park indicate pick a spot and then go to the office/museum to pay. We arrived on a Saturday and the office/museum was closed, but a Gallup City employee came around in the early evening to collect the fee. This is a large park with sites of varying sizes and views. The entire park is dirt, so it gets dusty when the wind blows, but the park looked well maintained. Each site has a picic table and fire ring. The site we chose was nearly level. There were no over the air TV channels. Verizon data service worked well. There are hiking trails nearby. We did see a couple of stray dogs run through the campground while we were there. And, we had a visit from a panhandler on Sunday afternoon. He was a bit startled by our growling dog and didn't linger. Being that we were the only RV in the campground at the time, it was a bit unsettling. There were two other RVs in the park with us the first night, but they left the following morning. We were the only ones in the park the second day until late afternoon when another RV showed up for the night. We felt better having another RV in the campground. If we were passing through the area at a time when we thought there would be other RVs in the campground, we'd stay here again. However, we won't plan a stay during the off season, which November appears to be. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed based upon other reviews. Positives, very cheap, nice views, Okay for doggies, however lots and lots of sticker bushes, hard to walk them. Check-in: yipes, signs hard to follow, it's next door to the museum, left side of convention center. Everyone really nice, if you want pull into the park pick a place, then go register and pay, take some cash. They have a ton of events here. I would call and make sure they have some spots. No one there when we went. Showers are clean and okay; just look old from lots of use. Would stay there again. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground in a beautiful location. The museum is really very good. I found it more extensive and informative than the museum at Window Rock. It is far enough from I-40 that there is little road or train noise. The only downside is the blowing sand if it is windy. Staff is really helpful and friendly. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Nestled in a lovely south-facing red rock canyon, this campground is a jewel for those headed east or west on I-40, which is only about 1 mile away. Train tracks are about 1/2 mile away, but with the windows closed I couldn't hear the trains. I took 1 star off because with windows open one might be able to hear the trains at night. Sites have water and electric, are well-spaced, and are reasonably level. Campground is grass and sand, and not a speck of trash anywhere. Restrooms were clean, with soap and paper towel dispensers and large showers. Very friendly and polite staff. We were touring the museum and rain was threatening, and several of the campground staff offered to give us a ride back to our RV when we finished seeing the museum. Please do not miss the fine museum, which is only about a 5 minute walk from the campground. Nice sand art paintings, excellent large wood carvings, fine southwest jewelry, baskets, pottery, early stone and clay utensils, etc. It is rare that one finds a campground as nice as this, as inexpensive, so close to an interstate, and with so much to offer for the overnight traveler. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Fantastic scenery! Clean, level sites. Easy access (within a mile) to I-40. Be sure to visit the Indian museum at this facility. Note that we don’t carry a TV around so no cable service is necessary. We use the fifth-wheel primarily to have a comfortable place to sleep, a toilet and shower that don’t offer surprises, and someplace to store food. Other than that, we live outside! We camped at Red Rock Park in a Fifth Wheel.

With a rate of 20 USD per night, there is not much to complain of. We stayed here at a time when there were no events and the campground was almost empty, which can be a little spooky. But - no problems whatsoever. Restrooms/showers were clean albeit a bit worn. If you're looking for a cheap place for the night, then this is the place. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Truck Camper.

I can completely understand some previous ratings due to the time of year and the type of usage this campground gets.Certain times of the year it is a horse camp and with horses you get flies. And there is certain times of the year I would not come here and with that being said March is a good time to come, too cold for flies and virtually no one in Camp. But beware when the wind gust blows the sand and dirt flies everywhere. This camp is fine dirt and sand with gravel but the grounds were very clean. This is our second time here in four years and we would return outside of the peak camping season and definitely not when they are using it for a horse camp or rodeo grounds. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful sport that is treated like trash. Gorgeous red cliffs with trees and hiking. The campsite was littered with trash and horse manure. There were hundreds of flies every where. The hiking trails had trash all over them. The trains were loud as well. We would not stay here again. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Nice open feeling to the park. Picking a site was a little confusing because of how they have it laid out. Mostly dirt and sand. Price is right though. Big Rig friendly. We are 65' with toad and did not have to unhook. Negatives are: No sewers but there is a dump station, train noise although we did not hear them inside the coach, dirt and sand everywhere and no amenities other than the bathrooms and a post office. We would stay here again if passing through the area, but only for a night or two. Not a destination CG. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

CG about 6 to 8 miles east of center of Gallup. Great place to stay while looking for Indian jewelery, blankets, pottery, etc. We stayed here when not much was going on. So CG was quiet and we had plenty of room. Site 100/101 flat, paved` and open so we could use satellite. Strong Verizon broadband. Only negative is lots of dirt in CG, not much grass. We always stay here when we come to Gallup: best price and very convenient to town. We will stay here again. Make sure you pay at the Museum Office NOT at the post office which is in the CG. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for Rock Rock Balloon Rally in December. Staff escorts you to your assigned site. Some sites are small: had to squeeze my TT into my site. Mostly dirt, sites not very level, w/ electric and water. Two large bathroom units with endless hot water. Nearby rail line has 24-hour freight traffic, and you'll hear one about every 20 minutes. Scenery is outstanding, especially with hot air balloons flying around the nearby rocks in the mornings. Cell phone service ok, radio stations ok, no TV. Nearby Gallup is 20 miles west. Operated by City of Gallup. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed here a few years ago when it was a State Park. Under the current City management we think it is better. It seems better organized and the grounds are very clean. The location is beautiful. The sites are on bare earth, each with a picnic table on a concrete slab. There are a lot of trees. We could hear the trains in the distance but there was no road or aircraft noise. Sites are fairly tightly packed so might not be so nice if full but there were only a few campers on this visit. We thought the site arrangement and layout was confusing, partly because picnic tables and utility hookups are on the same side. We liked it and recommend it. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

The accommodations are fine here except for the pervasive traffic and train noise resulting in our getting minimal sleep. The unheated bathroom was difficult to use although it was clean. We'd never stay again knowing sleep is unavailable here. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

If you mind the red dusty sand of New Mexico, don't stay here. Also, the sites had a lot of sticker burr plants they call Rams Heads. Our site was particularly infested with it. We've seen this a lot in New Mexico. There were sites with a lot less problem. Noisy train traffic, but we don't mind that. The showers where huge with copious amounts of water BUT, the there were only 2 showers in each building and you got dressed and undressed in public. No private spot for your clothing. Really liked the showers though: BIG and lots of water!!! Excellent place for a group. Looks perfect for a convention. Lots going on here too. Fun place. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.
