Small, all gravel lot behind a motel in the center of Magdalena. We were the only ones there for the entire week. The first entrance says “RV Entrance” but if you enter here, there are poles spaced out with the electric hookups on them and you won’t be able to maneuver around without hitting them. Go in the second entrance, where you’ll be able to move around a lot easier. Spaces are marked on the poles, we backed into a space and had the whole place to ourselves. There is no cable, but our HD antenna picked up all the local channels. There is no wifi. We were told we could access the library’s wifi but none of our devices could pick up a signal from it. Our Verizon hotspot worked fine but there is absolutely NO AT&T service whatsoever. The Very Large Array is only 20 miles west and there is a radio blackout over the entire area to minimize ‘noise’ from cell phones and such. Socorro, 20 miles east, has full 4G service. There is nothing in Magdalena and gas/diesel is outrageously priced and there is not even a grocery store, only a Family Dollar. The RV Park does not have bathrooms, showers, or laundry. The owner is really nice, although the RV Park and motel are currently for sale. We camped at Western Motel & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Magdalena is the closest town to the Very Large Array Radio Telescope, a scientific wonder that every one ought to see. The town is about five blocks long, and the Magdalena City Marshall patrolled the town regularly. The Western Motel in Magdalena is old, has seen better days, but has recently been purchased by a young couple who has big plans to make it a thriving concern…and are working every day at improvements. The motel had a half-dozen small, plain rooms; the RV park is a walled-in half-acre of gravel out back, with maybe a full dozen hookups. We shared the RV portion with a semi-permanent mobile home, a big rig, a 26-foot tow-behind, and two old cars. The motel & RV park are, like the town itself, at first glance unprepossessing, and I’d not be writing this, except that I find some business owners go out of their way to “show willing” where their customers are concerned, and I’d a lot rather stay at one of those places than at some fancy joint that doesn’t know (or care) what space you are in. The co-owner showed us the park, and mentioned that there were no toilet or shower facilities for the RV area. When I explained that wouldn’t work for us, she gave us the key to one of the unrented motel rooms, and told us to feel free to use whatever we needed in there during our stay, at no charge. Since I got a look at the motel room, I can tell you it was fairly small, but with a king-size bed; the bathroom facilities had been upgraded, and worked well. The shower was small, built for smaller previous generations of Americans. The room and bathroom were very clean and neat, and nicely decorated with a home-maker’s touch. The hookups all worked well. The whole town went quiet after about 9 PM. We stayed one night in an Aliner popup, and paid the standard rate of $25; I noted a Passport sign on the wall, and probably could have got a lower price, but I thought that free motel room access deserved the full price. We found some good, attractively plated food at the Bear Mountain Café & Visitor Center. We camped at Western Motel & RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a basic but nice RV park. Some sites are against the back fence - that is where we stayed. Lots of great places to walk the dogs in Magdalena. There is a large area a block west and south of the park - within easy walking distance. Nice level sites. Very quiet even though it was not far from the main road. You need to take take care going in and out because there is a curb at the two entrances but we took it slow and at an angle and we had plenty of clearance. No bathrooms or showers. Within walking distance of the restaurants and shops in Magdalena. We will be staying there again. We camped at Western Motel & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
