1 Park near Portales, New Mexico
Aug 2015 - $14.00
This state park is primitive in what is offered unless you love the quietness of a wind swept prairie, fishing lake with a nice walking trail with benches around it and lots of bunnies and roadrunners to watch. Updates are being made with totally solar restrooms and showers, all levels of camping for very reasonable cost. We used a electric and water handicapped concrete pad with wonderful covered picnic table. We stayed only one night but if in this area again, I would look forward to staying longer next time. - Antiquechild

Hidden gem of a park in eastern NM! The pull-through sites are huge and well separated from neighbors. The gravel was level on our site, but we did see a few that were not. Each site had a grill and a covered picnic table. The park is undergoing some major renovations - water was recently added to the electric sites and more bath houses and pull throughs are being built. The dump station was being renovated when we camped so it was out of order. The RV sites are a quick walk to the lake, which is beautifully maintained and well stocked. An absolute ton of bunnies in this park, they're not afraid to hang around your site! We would definitely camp here again. - wookiemouse

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
