1 Park near Pena Blanca, New Mexico
May 2015 - $10.00
This fairly remote location in the high desert provides great views of nearby mountains, quiet nights, and access to a large lake. Interior roads and sites are all paved; however, some sites (ours was one) are badly sloped to the point of being impossible to level even with a number of leveling blocks. The campground hosts were not particularly friendly, and our site required a cleanup of trash and gravel that was piled on the table. Be prepared for wind here, as you're on a bluff above the lake. Services and dining are about 30 miles, but Verizon cell and data worked well. An OK park for a short visit, but for us the remote location and mediocre facilities didn't outweigh the low rate and we'll stay elsewhere. - Meanderman

On the website there were only walk-up sites available in newly renovated Buffalo Grove Loop, so we arrived early and was able to secure one of two walk up sites. You go to site and then at 4 o'clock you go to office to pay. Office only open 2 hours in am and 3 hours in pm and pay box is not usable as sealed. Most back-in sites appear level but pull thru sites aren't level which is surprising for COE park.
Sites in Juniper Loop are smaller and older. No campground sign at entrance on highway. Turn at recreation area, pass visitor center and turn at campground building as going straight leads to very steep boat ramp. All sites have covered cement picnic table, paved driveway, with views. Overall, a great campground and we experienced wind daily, which is probably why there are wind socks and wind alert lights on lake. Will return! - RJourney

This park is beautiful. The park sits above the lake with incredible views of the mountains from every site. Great sunrise and sunsets over the mountains. The restrooms are old, but very clean. Our site, 58, was a pull-through. Concrete pad with gravel around. The picnic table is on a concrete pad with a metal cover, with a grill near by. We had water and electric. - Chucknviv
