This is a special place. What a unique sight and to think you camp within the rocks! The kids had a great time exploring within all of the monoliths, cracks, and crevices. The visitor Center was very informative and the staff was awesome. Very clean, very scenic, very cool. Every night we got to listen to the Great Horned Owls hooting away. - DougB

We haven't spent any time in New Mexico before and decided to stop here for a few days to check it out.
It is a ways from Deming, out in the middle of nowhere and beautiful. An unexpected surprise to be driving among the flats when you go around a bend a see these unique rock formations.
We checked in and found our reserved spot. We had selected a hook up site, water and electric, no sewer or dump station on the property. The ranger station is small but has quite a bit of information on the park and the critters, plants and how the "city of rocks" was formed. The campground host was nice but not too forthcoming with any information.
They have 4 vault toilets located throughout the campground. There is a bathroom/shower house near the check in that is open from 7:30 am to 9:00 pm at night. They close it at night so that their well can refill.
The hook up sites are right as you come in but the rest of the sites are nestled within the rocks, very cool spots, with some great views.
They are multiple hikes within and around the campground as well as an observation point. They also have a small desert botanical garden. There is a group site available for rent as well.
There is an observatory on the property, unfortunately they didn't offer any programs while we were here.
Lots of bunnies and jack rabbits as well as a large variety of birds.
Coming in on a Sunday was wonderful, very few campers, very quiet and relaxing. We loved being able to look at the stars at night, no light pollution here.
From this campground you can explore Las Cruces, Old Mesilla, Deming, Silver City, Gila Cliff Dwellings and if you have your passport, you can even do a day trip into Palomas Mexico.
This has been one of our better stops on our journeys! Would definitely stay here again if coming through the area. - Kgtraveler

Beautiful setting next to large field of eroded boulders and huge pillars of rock. Far from anywhere. I was looking forward to seeing the Milky Way in all it's glory but forgot there was a full moon that night, which was so bright it washed out all but the brightest stars. Great place. We'd stay here again except my wife hated the shower, which was a timed push button with almost no time between required pushes. Newer and very clean state-park style bathhouse, i.e. cold when it's cold outside and hot when it's hot outside. But the location can't be beat. - Lost

Hot springs and a quiet night or two of camping. One cannot go wrong. The clothing optional soak should be clothing mandatory, imho. However, this spot in the desert is worth the drive. - waterwalkin

The pull thru RV sites are long and easy to get in and out of. The main attraction of this place is the hot springs, which are nice and well maintained. There is no TV or wifi, and cell service can only be obtained on one side of the park, due to a big hill between there and the rest of the park. - KAP99

Very interesting and funky park. They are known for their natural hot springs! I believe they have 13 separate pools that range in temperature from 101 - 114 degrees. The people were very friendly. They have a number of camping areas, and some of the hot tubs are clothing optional. As long as you don't mind soaking next to a wrinkly, naked, old person (wait I just described myself); it is a very interesting park. The sites were very basic with dirt and some uneven roads and sites. This is definitely not a KOA but a nice alternative, and I really liked the hot tubs that were all fed from natural hot springs, and the temperature was regulated by the tank system in the park. We rode our bike about 2 miles down the road to check out City of Rocks State park. - mitchpadl
