8 RV 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

We stayed at this park for two nights and it was very good. We had a large pull through that was clean and well maintained. We did notice a cow manure smell one morning but it was not bad. We did not have sewer at our site but that was our choice. We stayed here with friends so we had two sites. Our friends used the shower and said it was fine. We would definately stay here again. - RayN

We stayed here for 3 nights using PA discount. They have pull thru sites with 30/50 power and water no sewer, I chose that. The sites are long, level and very easy to navigate the park roads. Power was good and water pressure was good. They have a garbage can at each site, pull thru site nice touch. Cash only and friendly service. I watched March Madness B-ball on their flat screen tv with cable in the lounge. Hope you like cats. - Diablo

I stayed in this park for two nights. The park is a little tired but quite satisfactory. There is a single washroom which, like the rest of the park, could use a sprucing up. There is no sewer connection at the individual campsites, but there is a dump station available at an additional charge. The price with the Passport America discount is reasonable. I would stay here again. - Gord0

We had booked a site without sewer hook-up online but took a first-come site with hook-up when we arrived. The campground hosts were very nice and helpful. There is free wifi which was excellent, at least from our site. The only negative is that a group pavilion sits in the middle of the campground and on a Friday night there was a group with 7 tents and many adults and children camped there. The noise level was not outrageous for a group of this size but was impactful to the whole campground. - Hikers

Bottomless Lakes State Park is about 12 miles from Roswell. Getting here is GPS challenged once you get on Bottomless Lake Road. GPS tip is to just keep going on Bottomless Lake Road and you'll eventually get to the campground. Your GPS might want you to turn once or twice before you get to the campground, just ignore it. The campground has 6 full hookup sites, some tent sites, and a number of water and electric sites, all with 30amps. Some sites can be reserved and some are first come first served. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The hookups are convenient. There are some trees but we had a good line of site for our roof mounted satellite dish. This campground has some of the longest pullthrus we have ever seen. We would stay here again because it is so scenic and we have more to see in Roswell. - Bob & Jo

The camp host at this state park is fantastic, very friendly and helpful. The interior roads of the campground could have used more gravel. The site was level which was nice. We were here during the winter season so not as much going in, visitor center closed. The reason for the rating of 7 is the state park was only so-so, we thought there might be more to do and the park area had trash scattered in many spots. - Sewing

Lot of rules to follow and long way to dog park, but overall it was very clean and well organized park with good wifi and easy entrance , large sites. Good value for what you got. To improve the park, they might put chairs in the shower rooms along with mats. No place to put soap and other items in handy cap shower. - Luthersr

This was our second experience at this park. Since our first they had expanded and added a huge area what has concrete roads, graveled pads and new tree plantings. It also includes a large restroom facility and ample trash receptacles. It was a very pleasant surprise! Cable is provided. We would stay again. - MamaLyn

40.00 reflects daily rate. I stayed for month and it was$475.00 including tax , electric,cable,sewer,water. I read all the reviews twice,to make sure I was at the same park.This place was spotless. Very few permanent people,extremely quiet. New cable box's are included in the price . No deposit required. We had a few issues with it and park personnel handled it perfectly. Mass transit bus is one block away, 75 cents per trip. 2 miles from Albertsons grocery store , 3 miles to Walmart. Bus stop in front of each. UFO museum is must see - Ken wittick

Once you see the other parks available to you then you'll understand why Red Barn is head and shoulders above them all anyway but this is just a nice little place in general. The place is a little cramped (I've seen MUCH worse) but it's super duper clean and the owner is a doll. We had called ahead to ask about leaving our fiver someplace while we went into town for the day and they said we could leave it out front - in the end she said "just leave it in your spot, I'll tell anyone wanting that spot that they have to wait until 3pm". Who does that? Nobody does. This place DESERVES your business, do yourself a favor and stay here! - CORockies

The rate reflects a week stay. We originally booked a pull through however worried that the trees would prevent satellite reception so switched to a back in. While the park is small it is easy to get in and out of. The owner is very helpful and we liked having some treats available with the honor system. The dog walk area is through a dirt field and on a dirt road that is adjacent to the RV park and within a farm. After the first day we found a really nice park 2.5 miles away, right across from the zoo with paved paths that we used twice a day for good dog walks. The best thing about this park is the WiFi! We used it all week with no problems and it's fast! If in the area we would stay here again. - Tony Connie and Rusty

This is a very small park next to farmland. Dairy farmland. Note that means you will be smelling dairy farms and it will make you greatful for the huge winds that sometimes roll through. The smell is potent when it's not windy. However, I will say that as parks go, this is a nice little park. Very well-kept, very nice manager (owner? I'm not sure. She was really nice and helpful.) Spots are close together but for a few nights to see the UFO Museum, it's doable. This is one of the only RV parks with trees, and the ownder planted them all herself - she really cares about the place and loves it, and you can tell. They were redoing the bathrooms when we were there, but they were still usable and clean. There is a little laundry on site and a DVD lending library with some good movies you haven't seen in awhile. There's even a little store and I was so grateful for that water while my husband was hooking everything up, because the desert makes you so thirsty! Very reasonable prices too. If I am ever in Roswell again, this is the RV park I'd choose. Oh, and the space might look tight, but she has two spaces that have gates on the other side, so when you pull in, she opens the gate when you leave. It was slow but we got our 40' RV and a tow vehicle in there, so don't think you can't fit just because it looks tight. - chasmyn

Rate reflect Good Sam discount. This is an older park that is well-maintained, and owners are on-site. We were in Site 48, and the tow car had to be unhooked and parked beside the motorhome. Interior roads and sites are gravel and in good condition when we were there. Site was level, and all utilities worked well. Wifi service is spotty. We did not use showers/restrooms. Parking to register is fine if you are the only unit; if several arrive at the same time, it gets really close. No cable TV unless you give a $100 deposit for a cable box; new cable company policy seems to be the issue. This park is next to a huge lot filled with what appears to be abandoned machinery, so the views are not great - not the fault of the owner. Road noise is minimal. We will use this park again. - 4windstrvlr

My husband and I, along with our two dogs have been staying in this park since August of 2016. We will remain here until January 2017 for a work contract. The park is large and clean and is located in the county, but very close to the city of Roswell (maybe 2 miles, if that). I would like to address the negative reviews others have left in effort to clarify that some people are just impossible to please and have unrealistic expectations.
For example, spraying for weeds. The owners take excellent care of the park and part of that is weed control. As I stated earlier, I have two dogs, to keep them away from possible poison I walk them on a leash and pay attention to what they are sniffing, licking, or eating. In addition, I use common sense and don't walk my dogs along the edge of curbs where the weeds grow.
Second thing I would like to address is the complaint of cow manure. It is obvious those individuals who complain about the smell are from the city (and there is nothing wrong with that) they are just not familiar with country living. Like I stated previously, the park is located in the county. Thus, there are farms around, but I assure you there are no cows bordering the park.
In regards to the complaint about flies... This has nothing to do with the park. Therefore, flies should not even be mentioned in people's posts.
Lastly, there are long term RVers that live along the back and sides of the park. Many of the long term RVers are in Roswell for work contracts, travel nurses, pipeliners, solar power, etc.
What I am refrencing is that these contract workers leave early for work, many of which drive diesel trucks my husband being one of them who leaves at 5:30am (for his job). The specific complaint regarding the "loud trucks" cracks me up. For a few reasons.
#1 they all leave at roughly the same time
#2 they pass your RV in 2 seconds (advice: get a noise machine)
The owners are awesome and if the park isn't packed they will walk you around and let you pick a place. There are a ton of spots that offer shade at different times of the day.
There's more but it only allows 2000 characters - Morganf

The park was at about 50% capacity when we visited. The owner was very friendly. I was allowed to pick my own site. There was some shade, but mostly at the perimeter, back-in sites that appeared to be permanent guests. Poor wifi. Slow internet and frequently drops the connection even though the signal is strong. All sites level. Sites and roads are gravel. About average distance between sites. Your neighbors are close by. My pull-through site was barely long enough for my motorhome and toad. As others have mentioned, we would sometimes get a cow/manure smell from the area. Not overpowering, but unpleasant. There are nice grassy areas for walking the dog. Concrete slab with a plastic picnic table that was in pretty bad shape. It's an okay park. Nothing special. I thought it was expensive for what you get. - Phaeton2

The campground offers water and electric only. There is a dump available at the edge of the front parking lot. The sites are designed so that the highway side of each rig shares the electric pedestal and water spigot. Each site also offers an interesting metal picnic table set on astro turf. As previous reviewers have noted, there is an abundance of weeds and other vegetation which includes those that produce burrs which are easily tracked into the rig. A little Roundup could go a long way here. There is a covered pavilion in the SW corner of the campground. The utilities worked as expected and were well placed. The lodge was very friendly. They offered Friday night fish fry while we were there. I'd recommend it. Other meals were available during the week as well. We spent three nights, but two would have been adequate to see the sights. We were surprised that Roswell offered as abundant shopping as was available. - 15243

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
