2 Parks near Mountainair, New Mexico
Aug 2015 - $14.00
This park just reopened this year after a 4 year shutdown due to forest fires. Loop road and site access is tight but manageable. 7500 feet in elevation makes for a pleasurable summer stay. About 4 miles of hiking trails in the campground with access to the National Forest backing the area.
Great staff, ensured garbage was dumped several times a day. Bathroom facilities maintained very clean. Sites were cleaned and raked after each rig left.
Site layout is strange. Our site had the fire ring behind the unit and the picnic table at the front drivers side.
No water or sewer at sites. Potable water fill station and dump station located at park entrance. I had good quality power on a 50 amp site.
Weekend traffic was busy, due to a very large church group in the group shelter area for the weekend. - RE:Todd

Simply put, this park is shabby and neglected. All sites are back ins. It's a rectangular parking lot with different kinds of gravel or dirt. There are two 50 amp sites in the central area; both were occupied. The other four 50 amp sites were at the end. Of these, one turned out to be 30 amp and another had a "pedestal" three inches off the ground, which made it unusable. The remaining available spot did have a slightly higher pedestal we could plug into, but had no circuit breaker, and I couldn't use my surge protector (no room to plug in). Clearly, these pedestals were not complying with code. Water and sewer worked, although I could see the water level in the sewer pipe just 8 inches below the top. I knocked on wood when I dumped, but it worked. Wifi was good. There is no security; you are next to the main road with no fencing. As others said, there are trains going by across the road frequently, but ear plugs took care of the problem. If you are 30 amp, there are more sites to pick from. This was the first RV park we've stayed in for a long time where I was unsure about whether the hookups would fail or cause damage. - Dr. John

Not really a destination, but a good basic park to overnight in on the way. The water spigots are shared between two sites. There were only 3 campers here, so not a big deal, but might be if it were full. Staff was friendly and helpful. One word of caution: the train is right across the street and runs frequently at all hours. We enjoy this sort of thing, but the noise might bother some people. We would use this park again. - Frizlefrak

Bare bones campground with the obligatory train track across the road. Great Wi-Fi, stable 50 Amp electric, friendly staff, fairly clean and certainly easy in/out as it was bordering the road. Would stay here again for a one-night stop because the price is right. - we_rv
