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. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Chaco Canyon is a 144 mile round trip from here and this is one of the closest places to camp. Great base for exploring the 4 Corners area. During the season they have horse racing on weekends, a casino, and who knows what maybe going on when you get there in the exhibition halls.

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. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Closest campground to Chaco.

2 miles from Salmon Pueblo.

Walkable distance to the casino and good food (slightly tacky decor).

10 minutes from good shopping in Farmington

Ok park with not many shade trees. Stayed here because it was within walking distance of a Casino. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Motorhome.

Large paved parking lot, 50 amp only next to power boxes, otherwise 30 amp. Showers and restrooms are not visible from sites, need to ask directions when paying a fairground office. Sites available only when there is no other event being held. Sites are all back-in but you can get away with parking parallel to actual site most of the time. Good for a couple of days. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Motorhome.
