10 Parks near Farmington, New Mexico
Oct 2006 - $22.00
Good Sam rate. Entering the park from the highway is very difficult. Exiting may be troublesome for 5th wheels. The sharp angle may put the pickup bed into the 5th wheel. It appears that 32' rigs might be the upper limit. 50 amp is extra. Sites are very close. We have to step around the sewer hookup of the next site to get out the door. Located next to a horse track. - Mel & Karol

This is a small park and good for several days. The owner is extremely nice and helpful. Excellent wifi, no satellite problem. Some street noise but not enough to be a problem. We would stay here again. - vmi1962

Conveniently located to the bypass but no noticeable road noise in the middle of the park. In a commercial area but didn't notice it being exceptionally busy or noisy. The park itself is being kept up well, no trash, fresh paint, clean, etc. Asphalt and gravel sites. Small park but no problem getting a big rig around (may require some cooperation from others at times). Friendly, knowledgeable owner/mangers. Excellent buy for the buck. - fulltimer121

New owners are very helpful and courteous. Just right for taking off on day-long visits like Chaco Canyon or Mesa Verde, not really a campground to stay in all day. Gravel sites with picnic table. Street noise dies down around 9pm. - Philomath Oregon

Quiet. Dark skies at night was wonderful. Best value of all parks we have had in NM, TX, AZ and Co. Level spots and easy to pull into with 41' toy hauler. Service and friendliness could not be better. Our #1 choice. This rv park makes me think about moving to Aztec. - Art and Stones

Good location, near the ruins. Certainly nothing fancy about this park but it is economical. Sites are flat and pull through. Only will take cash or check as payment. - jem11

The price quoted was for full-hookups. This is not a fancy park and most of the residents are permanent, but it's very close to the Aztec Ruins and museum, and the price is right. If you're up to it, you can even walk to the Ruins, but there is plenty of room in their parking lot for your rig if you prefer. If not for the ruins, I don't know that I'd stay here again. - frmOregon

Stayed here for a month and it was well worth the money. Low weekly and monthly rates. This is a smaller park that is quiet. Lot is all gravel and level, there is no dust. Owners were friendly and easy going. Bathrooms and laundry rooms were kept very clean. We would definitely go back. - CMDENTON

This very small & noisy park has mostly permanent residents and sits right on the main thoroughfare. Of the 12 tightly-spaced, thickly graveled sites only 1 or 2 are available for transient RV’ers. The park is apparently full to capacity all year long, mostly with early-rise workers. We called for reservations several months prior to our visit and we were told to “Come on in”. We checked again about a week ahead of our arrival and received the same response. When we arrived, the office was closed and there were instructions to self-park and return after 5 p.m. to check-in. Had another traveler pulled in before us, they would have taken the only remaining site and our “Come-on-in reservation” would be worthless. Not a good system. The hard-working and sincere on-site owners work full-time elsewhere and there is no other employees to staff the office, thus leaving no help available during normal working hours. The owners are admittedly having trouble finding time for all they have to do and they aren’t too worried about filling the 2 vacant sites with travelers. To their credit, they have several improvement projects in process, most everything is in good repair and the park is as charming as possible given it’s poor location. The park offers free WiFi (Lynksys) with an excellent signal & speed. There is no cable TV, showers, or laundry – but it’s “coming soon” according to the nicely-designed, if not overblown, website. The sites are simply too narrow for picnic tables or grills, our 50-amp service was not working and the sites are definitely too short to accommodate big rigs (we backed our 37’ 5th wheel and still-attached F-350 into the end site – which left quite a bit of our rig hanging out into the “street”). We only stayed here for one night and even then it was a definite disappointment. - paulandholly

It's a quiet, full hook-up park with no frills. Dirt roads, some gravel, fairly level, semi-shaded sites. Park is alongside the river. Mostly pull-throughs. There are a number of permanent or semi-permanent rigs. Park is located behind the fairgrounds & the race track/casino areas. No wifi. No restrooms or showers. Cash or personal check--no credit cards. Works fine for us for 3 nights. Not a destination campground, but few (if any) are in this area! - User2356

Well, well, where to start? For openers I should have known I was in trouble when I checked in and ask if there was a discount for Good Sam. The gentleman's response was to give me a blank stare and ask Sam who? This place, nor any other in Farmington that I saw, could classify as an "RV Resort". It is basically a few acres of sand and dirt. The interior roads were made because of use over time, not by design. There is nothing that marks individual spaces; no outside tables, not a blade of grass anywhere. One reviewer mentioned gravel sites and well maintained. WRONG!! No gravel, no maintenance, no anything except space; but they did have water, 50 amp, and dumps. What more can a guy expect for $25.00/night. After paying in cash I was instructed to "pick a site, any site that is open". The two different gentlemen that I saw operating the park were very nice guys and offered to help in anyway they could in directing me around the great city of Farmington, the golf courses, and fishing areas. - Jack Tennant

We stopped here after having changed our plans for a another campground. Pretty bare bones park: all gravel and dust with a few small trees. Check-in staff was friendly and helpful. No restroom, shower, or laundry facilities; there was a porta-john down the lane. No cable TV, WiFi; cash only. Not a place we'd stay again. - Meanderman

This campground was a previous KOA. Campsites are large, level, gravel, and we had 2 good size trees. Easy to get into site and plenty of space in the campground. While the sites are gravel, the outside edge had pine trees and grass and a huge cork tree. There is a pool, looked nice but we didn't go. Very good cable, Wi-Fi was excellent- we had no trouble connecting and speed was great. This is the closest campground to Chaco canyon-60 miles. - Jeannehanes

Arrived after hours. Had to walk a dark campground to find an available site. Since it's still cold, the water spigots have heat tape wrapped around them and some of the outlets are being used. The first site we pulled into, the 30-amp plug was being used (our old motorhome only has 30-amp). On the 2nd site, the electric was off, but the 3rd site suited our needs. I didn't see much of the park, but it looked like there many full-time residents. - Fitzjohnfan

First off, the Resort claims to be at 4 corners, which is about 80 miles, one way to get to. Then you have use of the word "Resort". This park is in Bloomfield NM, which is a large player in NW New Mexico's "energy zone"., having multiple refining plants. Energy workers travel to jobs and this "Resort" is about 40% long term residents and the companion "landscaping" they provide. Don't get me wrong, they are good folks and the camp feels safe. The marketing department just needs to change the name to Desert Rose Campground. We stayed three nights to see surrounding ancient culture attractions. Happy to have dry weather as it is obvious the camp turns into mud when rains come. Clothes washers are clean enough for comfort but are old. One is avocado green, hmm, reminds of early marriage appliances. All said, this area is sparse in RV parks and this one is about as good a choice as any near. - Elmo and Gracie

If you're in the Farmington NM area and wondering if there will be any place that will have room for you and your RV, McGee Park will probably be able to get you in. They have 576 sites with power and water and an additional 200 sites for dry camping. We spent 6 days here and loved it. We had a site down by the river. In fact we had about 2.5 sites because they told us that the view would be nicer if we just parked sideways to the lines they had drawn to mark the sites. The power boxes are different in that they either have a 30 amp and 20 amp hookup or a 50 amp and 20 amp hookup. I didn't find any 30/50 plugs in the same box. The 50 amp sites are scattered around the complex just look for the box with a 240 volt sticker they are generally near the power pole and meter panels. If there's nothing going on at the fairgrounds they leave 2 handicap bathrooms open for showers. If something is going on they have large shower rooms to handle the dirty masses. If you get there during business hours you can pay with a credit card, cash, or check in the office. If you are there on weekends or after hours you can pay with cash or check. There is a small fee for using credit cards that the county charges to recoup cost. There's not much in the way of shade at the sites no fire rings and few picnic tables. Most of the sites are paved but the ones in Area 5 down near the river are gravel with gravel roads. We had problems with mosquitoes in the early evening and I imaging during the summer it could get bad. If you are here when they are near capacity the sites will be pretty close together. They had a dog show, horse races, and a carnival going on when we were there on a weekend and there was no crowding issues. As mentioned in previous post they have onsite security that patrols at night, a sheriffs substation and a fire station on the same property. We'd stay here again in a heart beat. - pumper9x9

With over 450 sites, there is almost always room a this nice RV parking area at the San Juan County Fairgrounds. Level gravel parking, with electric and sewer at each site, and an easily accessible dump station, and for only $20 a night. The office staff was very friendly, sharing information about places to visit and road conditions, and the 24 hour security is a welcome addition. There are some sites down near the river and a large pond, but we avoided that area since we stayed during a rare rainy time for New Mexico. A few miles to town with all the services, and a good base to visit Chaco Heritage National Monument and the four corners area. We will definitely stay here again. - lostinspace

Easy access to the site.
No sewer, but good dump station.
Level sites, very quiet when we were there, with several pleasant river or lakeside hookups, which took you away from the activity on the fairground
Staff very pleasant, 24 hr security.
Nicest place we found to stay in Farmington, not likely to get booked out, with over 500 hookups.
We would definitely stay here again.
We did not use the shower/toilet, but overall the center and offices were kept clean. - The Tpyeist
Apr 2016 - $18.00
Not recommended for travelers/ vacationers. This is a park for working, long-term residents who just need a place to sleep at the end of a shift at the local mine, power plant, or hospital. It has no amenities; just sewer, power and water.
Do not bring children here; there is too much "junk" lying about to tempt them. Pets allowed off-leash but keep them in & safe at night: there are coyotes about.
Price reflects weekly rate and I would stay here again in a heartbeat, since what I do (scenic/landscape photography) resembles "working". - Old Mountain Man

When we found out the RV park we were planning to stay at was closed we went Googling for another and landed on this one. We were tired. We'd already had a flat and a long day. The owner met us near the highway and lead us in. We would have never found it on our own. The park was gravel and level but dumpy. The owner was very pleasant and even helped us back our trailer into the spot. But this is an overnighter when you are tired and need to stop and nothing else. - Arthur M.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. Park is pretty much a gravel lot. Spaces are fine and the bathrooms/showers some of the best we've ever seen. Except for a short timer on the water for the showers. They have a fenced dog run but its hard packed dirt and too small for our big dogs. In a somewhat seedy part of town. - User3482

A fairly new park. All gravel sites. Super wide sites. Great cable and wifi. The laundry and restroom/showers were new and the best I've ever seen. Very little road noise. - Hard Rock Fans
Oct 2015 - $35.00
We spent 5 nights. Drive way and sites are gravel and large number of the sites were taken by local workers. Not all site are level. The RV park is a block from the highway and was quiet for the most part except when the workers left at 5 am each morning. Restrooms and showers are new and very clean. The new laundry was completed during our stay but we didn't use it. The park host was very nice and helpful. If you are just traveling through or wanting a base camp this park fits the bill. We would stay here again. - chamaman

This is just what is says - a no-frills RV park. Sites are full hookup, gravel and level. Park is clean, comfortable, and the owners take good care of it. Owners are friendly, helpful and professional. Additional full-hookup sites were being added. Even though it is located in a commercial area, there is a privacy fence around it and we felt secure. We took day trips to Shiprock and Durango. We even went to Four Corners. Rate listed is based on a short stay; lower rates are available for weekly or monthly stays. We would definitely stay here again. - talktek
