7 Parks near Dexter, New Mexico
Mar 2016 - $15.00
Can't beat the price at $15 a night, but it is a very unusual park. Lots of people use the park during the day and at night there is some traffic. This park is in the middle of dairy country and when the wind is right the cow manure smell is pretty strong. The park and pond are great though. Hookups were sufficient but on the old side. 30 amp only. Fine for a couple of nights stay. - Lee and Trace

This is a small 50 acre lake operated by the city of Dexter with easy access by paved roads. Fishing (trout-winter, bass-summer) stocked by NM Game & Fish. Newly completed ADA restroom facility. Boating (up to 18', and jet-skis) in summer months, 4 fishing/boat docks. Dry camping all around the lakefront. Pets must be leashed as a lot of locals walk the road each morning/evening. Day trips to Carlsbad Caverns and many other area attractions. RV spots are back-in and have morning shade. A nice pavilion and gazebo also available. Nice place! - pivotdoc

Just a small stop in an area that doesn't have any tourist draws, except it is close to Roswell. The park was fine for an overnight stop. A serious wind storm blew threw in the afternoon after we arrived. Locals told us that it is generally very windy there. - Chiango

This is a super well maintained park about 6 miles from Roswell. I don't think they have restrooms or showers so best if your rig is self contained. No sewer for pull thrus. The host was very welcoming and friendly. Seems like many perm residents but they were friendly and kept their dogs fenced or on leash. We enjoyed our stay. However, at times the smell of cows was over powering. Strange because you can't hear or see them but sure could smell them! At other times, no smell at all. We had a nice tree for some shade and a big yard. No fire pits. Great sunsets. Roswell has a wierd vibe. We were happy to move on. We would stay here again if we were to pass thru. - Jenn and Lance Grimm

Decent park with great rates with Passport America. We stayed in a pull-thru site which are primarily for folks passing through; the pull-thrus do not have sewer hook-up; there is a dump station on site. Even though the pull-thrus are set up so two RVs can park sharing the utility pole, they try to ensure that only one is assigned at a time - the manager apologized that one night another RV would be assigned next to us - but the space out our "door" side was so large (we were on the end) that it didn't matter to us at all. Some have mentioned the smell from the cattle next door - we really did not notice it, maybe the prevailing wind was in our favor. There are two washers and two dryers in the building with the office, as well as a room with a TV and a stove. It appeared that some folks used the bathroom in that area for their showers; we didn't but it looked clean.
There are a number of permanent residents in the back-in sites, but they kept them fairly nice. - pattic777

Pulled in without a reservation and treated very well with a choice of pull-through electrical and water, on Fathers Day.
Getting to this state park involves many winding curves but all were acceptable for our truck and trailer. Very popular lake for locals including rental boats. We arrived late in day so we spent no time in the water.
Getting here is "out of the way" but a value for the cost.
Our stay was for one night only. If in area again, we will strongly consider returning. - SemperParatus

Bottomless Lakes SP is about 10 miles east of Roswell, and then south along about 7 miles of paved roads, one at the base of a long abrupt ridge, and the better road on top of the ridge. At the base of the ridge there are 7 pothole lakes. Lea lake is the second largest and is the most southern where the CG is located. The lake is beautiful and the eastern cliffs rugged and impressive. By Lea lake there is a large semicircular pavilion/bath house and a large day area which during our stay was filled with some sort of a RV group rally. The campground is level with 2 loops well graveled with a shelter at each. 26 electric/water, 6 sites electric/water/sewer, and 3 no hookups. Two bathhouse, very clean with hot water. One dump. We had no bugs. It was a quiet pretty stay overnighter for us. Would stay there again. - 210jem

About 7-8 miles off the main road but the roads are paved. Half of the spaces are reserved camping and half are on a first-come first-serve basis: some are pull through sites suitable for larger rigs. Most have electric and water, only a few have sewer also but there is a dump station at the entrance/exit of the park. The spaces are wide and have a picnic table and a permeate open gazebo on a cement pad next to the space. Its about a 20-25 min drive to Roswell. Good cell service for both AT&T and T-Mobile. - jpm777

This park appeared to be nice enough, but has challenges. We reserved a space online. I received no confirmation, so I called. They had no record of the reservation. Very nice person made a reservation for us over the phone. She never told me the price (stupid of me not to ask). We arrived after hours. No receipt was with our package. No code for bathroom. No code for wi-fi. Cable did not work at all. Nice dog park, though. Be sure to arrive during office hours so you can get the needed codes. - DAVISAFNM

This park is very quiet and peaceful. We parked here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The camp host was very nice and helpful. The sites are large and for the most part level. The wifi is okay. We had trouble the first night getting connected to the internet and while a bit slow it is working fine this morning. We will definitely camp here again. - Doug_C

We stayed in the "new" section which is at the back of the park. That part has nice wide concrete driveways and gravel sites. Not exactly level even as it seems they could have been made level. The seem to have a hump in the middle. Wi-Fi was almost unusable, super slow. Restrooms were nice and the entire new section is clean. They have an extensive selection of DVDs which they lend out. - Coopsecondact

Small but cozy RV park with very accommodating host. Second time we've stayed here. Last time was one year ago. The best thing about this RV park is the friendly park host. She had insightful recommendations for us in the area and was always willing to help. I would definitely stay here on our next trip through the area. - Bandanna Man

Small RV park just east of Roswell. Shady area with small grassy sites oriented around the property line. Two pull-through sites with a wooden fence gate in front so you can through when you leave.
Small/older buildings could be a former small farm house.
Very nice lady runs the park and does all she can to make the stay pleasant.
WiFi and Cell signals were good.
Small laundry and individual bath/shower rooms (one men's and one women's).
It's just a small quiet RV "park" on a rural road with about 60% of the RVs there staying on a monthly basis. - Creativepart

A great small park with some shade, gravel sites and gravel road and full hook ups. Also cable. Owners are so nice and helpful in every way. Excellent WiFi. Clean bath rooms and laundry. Rec room with snacks, ice and ice cream all on the honor system. We stayed a week for $182.75. We would stay there again. - milodog

In Roswell for the Senior Olympics. 106 degrees in the afternoon. Cable reception is poor, but local HD is great! WiFi is spotty but marginally usable. Electric and water were strong and reliable. About half the sites have trees/ shade. Easy access to park and camp site. The sites are close together but doable. Restroom and showers were dated but clean. I will camp there again. - toothdk

Easy to find and the owner will show you a route to depart that will avoid the downtown area. Check-in was quick and the owner led us to our site. They have expanded the park and there are more trees in the older section, but there was plenty of shade. Our site, 12, accommodated our 45' coach and towed, and I believe sites 7 - 12 would also. There was plenty of room between sites. The park is older, but the owner's have put much money and sweat equity into their park, and it shows. We were given great directions to Walmart and surrounding area. They don't have a pet area as such, but there are enough grass areas to accommodate most pets. The owner's go out of their way to ensure your stay is pleasurable. Highly recommend this park. - Don & Candy

Small park, not a resort. Great staff, nice sized, level, gravel sites; some with shade trees. Passing through, stayed one night. Would definitely stay again. - TPDBOB8687

Ditto the other reviews. Easy access, water and power good. We had the place to ourselves. Lots of stickers, but the artificial turf and nice picnic tables, plus roomy site make up for any slight inconveniences.
Great for traveling Elks. - Bigrig43

The park has good hookups but the sites are overgrown with weeds with stickers and burrs. There are tables at each site on imitation turf which is a nice touch. Very level and would definitely use again for an overnighter. - Dick & Bev

Verizon and MiFi worked great. Good location and sites are fairly level and in good condition with gravel. Water pressure good and electric good power. Lodge offers lunch and dinner every night. Would suggest taking the bypass and take W. College ave to get to lodge easier than going through town. - margeandbob
