This could be a nice park as it is located in a scenic location. However, it is run down and in need of a lot of work and attention. The first thing that has to be said - which we unfortunately did not read about anywhere - is that there are stray dogs at this campground. The notices put up by the campground operators on the toilets warn campers about the stray dogs. We would have preferred to have read those notices BEFORE entering the grounds. Second, there are also panhandlers on the campground. There is no security and no gate and literally anyone can come and go as they please. Also, some of the water spouts do not work, many of the benches are broken and the fire pits are falling apart and unusable. The attendant comes around at about 5 pm to collect the $20 fee and there are warning signs that other people may pass themselves off as the park attendant and to not pay those other people. Overall this is a terrible park which could, under the right management, be an absolutely wonderful park. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Older state park. The campsites are confusing at best. If you can find a park worker (at the museum) they will point you to one that may work for your rig. Campsite do not seem very level, had to use blocks under my class A to get to level. Electric good voltage. water faucet leaked a bit, pressure good. Fire pits not really usable. A few stray dogs roam the camp. Did not see any panhandlers. But did not want to leave anything out at night. You can pay at the museum, also an attendant will come around about 5 pm to collect. No OTA signal. Sat may work on some site. Our site 100 was one of the few pull throughs for our Class A. Could not get coach sat to work, carry out worked fine. Verizon signal good. T-Mobile signal good. Sites seem to just have water and electric. Dump station available. Area 2 parking that other's talk about is all cement, but only in use during events. A couple of good hikes in the area. Especially for sunrise and sunset hikes. Did not notice any train noise when were here. Exit directions are reversed - West bound use X-33 East-26. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Go to Gallup a few minutes right down old 66. Go to the El Rancho Hotel, Many a western movie was made there, and the rooms are named after old movie stars. Many pic of movie stars on walls and a nice bar. Worth the drive.

This park was close to I-40 and has beautiful views within about 8 miles of Gallup. There are water and 30/50 amp hookups and a nice easy to access dump station. Like most of this area, everything is dusty, but the sites are pretty level hard dirt. Some are back in and some are drive through. Ours was a drive through with a cement patio and large picnic table. It was cold and windy when we were here, so I did not get a chance to explore the trails. We had our choice of several sites since it was still winter. A park worker came after we set up and collected the fees. If you are self contained they do not provide you access to the bathrooms and showers, so I do not know what they were like inside. This is a city owned park that was previously a national park. There are covered horse stalls which would be very nice for those traveling with horses. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

If you come after the office is closed, pick your spot and set up. They will come around and collect the fee of $20 per night. I imagine this campground gets busy at other times of the year, but it was quite cold during our stay and very few other campers.

This is a beautiful, quiet campground. At $20 E & W, I think it's a good deal. We didn't bother going over to the museum to pay, just picked a spot and waited for the attendant to come get our payment. We understood from reading the prior reviews that that probably meant we wouldn't get a key for the restrooms, but we didn't need them. The setup is slightly confusing, but no big deal. It is all sand and since it had rained heavily the prior day there were some soft areas and some puddles but not a big deal. Plan accordingly. The utilities were well placed and worked properly. The site only required very slight leveling, and there are garbage pails about every two or three sites which I really appreciated. Verizon signal was very strong. We might even stay an extra night and would certainly stay again. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Truck Camper.

From what we understand, this is a "Lions-Club" sponsored City Park, on property owned by the Navajo tribe. Museum, rodeo arena, horse stalls, picnic areas, hiking trails, "main" and "west" campgrounds; we were in the main campground. Pretty much open area, with some cottonwood and mesquite trees - some sites pretty shady. All areas are dirt, some gravel, some grass, most internal roads paved; about 112-115 sites. Power and water were both good; hardware in good repair. Wish we'd had more time, as there were a couple trails we would have liked to hike. Good value - nice park, for overnite. Hookup placement caused a bit of confusion - fortunately not too full this nite. Park not designed by RV-savvy designer. Watch for gopher holes. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

First, how to pay for a site here. If you go to the office inside the museum Mon-Fri. 8-4 you can pay with cash, check, or credit card and get a key to the bathrooms/ showers. After hours or weekends: a employee will come around during the evening and you can pay them with cash or check, I don't think they have the bathroom keys.

Second, picking a site. They have 2 main areas for camping. (Area 1) One is in area that has trees scattered about that offer some shade. (Area 2) The other one is a large parking lot without a lick of shade. Area 2 looks like it gets used for big events like rodeos and is mainly overflow.

Area 1 is close to an immense wall of Red Sandstone and has some shade. The thing about Area 1 is the sites are not well defined so campers tend to park their rv's any way they want, which leads to a lot of confusion as to where exactly the sites are. The sites are not all that level but should be in the range of most leveling systems.

If you get a key to the bathrooms you will find them clean and have showers with good pressure and plenty of hot water. The area is pretty quiet but you can hear the trains running up and down the main line of the BNSF all day and night long. On the plus side, they are not blowing their horns. There are a couple of nice hikes up in the red rock canyons behind the campground that are way beyond well marked and while not impossible to get lost, you'd have to work at it. Verizion MiFi works great. We spent several days here and will stop by again if in the area. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Close to Gallup with well over 100 Native American Trading posts. The museum in the park has some nice exhibits and is free. The hiking out the back of the park rivals most any place we've been. It's a good base camp for visiting several National Monuments and the Zuni Pueblo.

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. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

A former NM state park, now operated by city of Gallup. We used the RV campground Sunday, Oct 11, 2015, and this was a problem.

The park campground has locked restrooms, and you can only get a key when you pay. You can't make phone-only reservations or pay on weekends, phones aren't answered, no staff on site during entire weekend. No porta potty as backup for day visitors. We were in a Coleman tent trailer, and the campers in next site let us use their RV toilet.

No campground map is available, no entry information describing where office is located, no information where primitive sites are located, no host site. No senior, military or long-term discounts.

Roads are paved and fairly easy to navigate. My site had a new steel picnic table. The firebox was turned upside down and unusable. Electric pole was convenient, but water spigot had no pressure, had to use another site's water. Sites are mixed in size, shape and level. No cable or phone connections. Cell phone reception is good with Verizon. No dump station.

Landscaping is minimal, no ground cover on the bare sand, occasional low-grade deciduous trees drip sap on vehicles. Any wind may produce a sandstorm in campground. Rainstorms may wash out some campsites. Drivepads are crumbling asphalt.

Nearby BNSF railroad is a major freight line and runs large, noisy mile-long loads all night long with multiple engines.

The nearby Red Rocks are absolutely spectacular, a photographer's dream. Fairly easy to climb, but not handicap accessible. Endless natural beauty. Unmarked, unmaintained trails. Elevation about 6,500'.

Overall Value unknown - wasn't able to pay.

Overall Cleanliness unknown - couldn't get into locked bathrooms, so marked as None available. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful hiking with several trails. We took the trail to Church Rock and returned down the Slick Rock trail with footsteps carved out of the rock. We also took the Pyramid Mt hike with 360 degree views of the whole area. Not to be missed.

This is a beautiful park several minutes North of I-40 and is a City of Gallup, NM park. The attendant was very courteous and pointed us to one of the longest pull thru spaces that would accommodate our Motorhome without detaching our tow. I had read that the park was very dusty when windy and that was a fact. We arrived right before a thunderstorm and there was red dust blowing around. But when the rains came, the dust was settled. But we did have to take our shoes off before entering the coach as they were caked with red dirt. It is a very beautiful and stunning location and some nice trails to take. Very good value for an overnight stop as well. The busy train line to the south has frequent trains all nightlong and you can hear the rumble of the trains but there were no whistles blowing which was a plus. With the windows up, you wouldn't hear very much of the trains. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
