4 Parks near Columbus, New Mexico
Jul 2016 - $14.00
New clean restrooms. We were only one of two campers in the whole place.
I saw some reviewers talk about the dust and lack of trees. It's the desert. What do you expect? - Bob and Sally Ski

The sites were very nice. The restrooms and showers were clean. Not much for hiking trails there but good places to hike within an hour away. We hiked in Spring Canyon Park. Most sites had a covered picnic table providing nice shade. - Two_Huschels

This park is very nice if you like the desert. The sites (water & electric only) are spacious and include a fire ring and covered picnic table. The museum on site is fantastic and the volunteers and rangers are all very helpful. The park wasn't very busy when we were here, so it was very quiet at night. We will return to stay a few nights and go into Mexico. - Danielle_S

We stay here almost every year on our way to Tucson for the winter. Kind of remote and we were the only ones in the park, same as last year when we traveled the week before Christmas. On the occasions we traveled right after Christmas there were usually other RV's around. Very inexpensive for an overnight with full hookups. Good place to clean up from the long trip down from MN. Short drive to Tucson the next day. - Ron1936

This park was recommended to us by friends who frequently use it on their way to and from Arizona. All sites have 30 amp service and water. Most have sewer. The sites are all pull throughs, and are quite level gravel base. Each site has a garbage can. There are approximately 10-12 sites around a ramada, and there are 3 areas widely spaced apart. In spite of being near the interstate, road noise was not a problem. Even being outside was not bad. There is also some train noise but no horns. We got 4G WiFi using our Verizon Jetpack and it was quite fast. Also picked up at least 12 TV channels using the antenna. The area around the sites is nice and grassy with what are I think a type of yucca plant and small thorny bushes. Mountains are in the distance. A good spot for overnight or to see Silver City. The gas station is very accessible for a rig, and there is a DQ restaurant here. Hours however are limited. One drawback is the drives to the parking spots are somewhat washboard. We would definitely stay here again. - coffeeman1

Beautiful views. Restrooms/showers cleaned at least twice over 24 hour period. My type of campground - I pay, I park, I get left alone!
Trails were nice. - Bob and Sally Ski

A terrific overnight location well south of I-10 and beyond the urban sprawl of Deming. We stayed here for a single night going and returning from a cross country road trip. Sites are spacious and most have an incredible panoramic view of Deming and well beyond. It is a great place for viewing the stars since there are no lights except the ones from other campers. The drawback or negative for this campground are the dirt loop roads and the group camp shelter. Any amount of wind will stir up the dust from the roads which are not paved. The group camping shelter is placed in the middle of the loop with hook-ups. When there are no group campers this is a quiet and great place to stay overnight. - James Barr

13 miles southeast of Deming, NM $14 for an electric site with water, $10 for a dry camp spot. I found this park quite nice and enjoyed my stay in March 2016. The temps were in the 60's and 70's in the day, 40's at night, perfect in my book. My first night the very friendly camp host escorted me to the group campground which has 4 campsites, close to each other. I was the first in and 3 more rigs showed up and we all made friends and chatted about our travels. The next morning, I saw a RV headed out, so I jumped in my car and snatched #13, a ginormous site. There are 23 electric sites and about 6 are reservable, the rest are first come first serve, with a 14 max stay. Bathrooms and showers are in a very new building are great, but they are closer to the electric sites, further from the dry sites. The largest shower stall/changing area I've ever seen! There is a 1.2 mile walk around the perimeter of the park. You can head up the hill and do some digging for agates, geodes, and thunder eggs. There is a visitor center at the park with samples of rocks that can be found in the area. The park is dead quiet at night and the stars are amazing.
The Dogs Opinion (it's all about the dogs) The dogs liked it, the weather was pleasant for them. They enjoyed the hike in Spring Canyon and the hike around the campground. Always nice to be out in the country!
TV? I received 2 networks, pbs and a few other channels very well on an antenna.
Cell phone/Wi-Fi? Verizon 3bars on a 4g network. - Tails From The Road
