Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $19.00
There are several small parks in Magdalena. We picked this one arbitrarily on our way to see the VLA (Very Large Array). It's on the west end of town and has a motel on site, but the sign said No Vacancy - methinks the maid quit, not that they were full. The swimming pool is a large concrete lined hole in the ground surrounded by a cyclone fence. The basketball court is about 10' square concrete surrounded by weeds. There are small concrete pads at each power pedestal, which are kind of side-by-side. Otherwise, they are back-in. The site wasn't quite level. But, it served the purpose for an overnight stay and wasn't expensive. And there were no trees to block the satellites. We probably wouldn't return here - maybe go on to the campground 14 miles west, which also uses a Magdalena address. We camped at Eagle's Nest in a Motorhome.
