2 Parks near Clayton, New Mexico
May 2015 - $14.00
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The park is beautiful and quiet.
The fossilized dinosaur footprints were awesome! We are birdwatchers, and saw our first roadrunner here. Lots of swallows swoop over the lake constantly. If you do not have a reservation, the fee is payable with cash or check only. - Wv travelers

I loved this park. It is 12 miles from town but the paved road is in good condition. The roads into the 2 developed campground loops are good but the road to the primitive camping areas is badly washed out. Of the 2 loops the one with electric and water is the least attractive but the sites all have a lake view and most are pull through. There is not much privacy between sites. There is plenty of room for big rigs. Reservations should be made for W&E sites. I found one of my best ever tent sites on the undeveloped loop. It was lakeside and very private. There was a large picnic table on a paved pad with a cover. The parking area was badly washed but I had no trouble getting in and out. The loop without W&E has a few sites suitable for RVs if you don't mind a little leveling in exchange for larger private sites. Clayton SP is known for its fishing, birding and its 500 dinosaur tracks. It's an easy hike to the dinosaur tracks. Don't miss them. I would definitely stay here again. Be advised that there are many areas in NM, even along major highways, where cell service is unavailable including this park. If you can't live without it stay close to towns. - NT2013

We did not stay here but would have liked to if they had the 50amp electric service that they told us they did on the phone. The views from the camp site were amazing. - alamo2323

We ran into car trouble, and the owner was extremely helpful in getting a mechanic who could look the problem over on short notice. The park is spacious and quiet, with lots of grass and trees.
I loved the showers - immaculate, lots of water pressure, and nice, hot water. This stop turned out to be one of the highlights of our cross-country trip. - Wv travelers

We have stayed here before so we came back, and what a disappointment. The whole campground is so neglected and run down it looks almost to be closed. Burrs all over the grounds so it is almost impossible to walk the dog. As one reviewer said, the desk lady was having a bad day. Picnic tables have peeling paint and broken boards so they can't be sat upon or used at all. Reservations are not taken when you call ahead. We will not be back even for a overnight stay. - Arizona Traveler

Just finished a 2 week trip to Texas in our 5th wheel, and on our way back home we stayed in this park. We really just need a place for the evening to hook up, eat dinner, and get ready to leave again in the morning. Centrally located in Clayton, easy to find from the highway, Wi-Fi and electric worked well, bathrooms were clean, easy to navigate park, staff was friendly and made the check-in quick and fast. For a quick overnight stay it was perfect. If we needed to stay in the area again for a night, we would stay here again. Everything in the park looked a little worn, it looked like not much maintenance had been done for awhile. No cable TV. - KTorline
