1 Park near Portales, New Mexico
Apr 2015 - $18.00
Nicely designed park, except that in the open area in between all the sites, they have a maintenance yard with junk all over the place - this really destroyed the beauty of the park. The sand dunes are mostly overgrown, but fun to walk through on the trails. The showers are unusable, as they operate on a spring-loaded button, and you have to keep pressing it every half minute or so to start the water again. Nevertheless, the bathrooms were very clean and modern. The customer service was excellent and very friendly, both from park employees and the wonderful campground hosts. The park was a reasonably good value except that the dump station was out of commission when I was there. During the three days that I was there, it was very windy all but one morning. The morning that it was calm, there was a horrible stench from nearby fertilizer operations, as well as a plague of tiny flies. But when the wind was up, neither of those was a problem.
If you have a longer rig and make a reservation, stay away from site #11 - you have to make a tight S curve to get in. - KAP99

My rate was only $10 with a annual pass. This is a nice little park with a fishing pond and a little trail through the sand dunes. I had a nice picnic table and my own garbage can. The camp ground host was a nice lady from Colorado. Very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were cleaned every day and the shower was actually pretty warm for a state park. I enjoyed my stay here, the only exception being the flies from the surrounding cattle feed lots. They were pretty crazy, actually prevented me from going outside for a few days. I bought some fly tape and they seemed to subside after killing a few hundred of them. Nearby Portales is a cool town, but Clovis seems a bit depressed. - Alice Drinkwater
