This is a great place for over night. Convenient to I-25 and Las Cruces.
Only 1 mile off I-25. We stayed in the Cactus Patch Loop with w&e. Nice covered picnic table on concrete pad. Clean rest rooms and showers. Good walking trails. A real value for the money. Reservations are needed for the w&e sights as this is a small campground near an interstate it gets heavy use. I have camped here several times and always enjoyed it. This time I arrived in a wind storm with gusts up to 60mph. The last few miles on I-25 I felt as if I was hauling a drunken trailer. Was really relieved to get to our camp site. High winds happen in the spring in NM. Couldn't do anything but hunker down and wait it out. Not the parks fault. Winds died down around 6PM as they usually do in that area. Winds were forecast for the next day also so we left at 7AM. HINT: Winds can be bad in NM but they usually show up in late morning and die down around 5PM. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit old fort just down the road where Gen MacArthur was born.

Dry camped here, right off 185/25. High winds, so good to have a spot. Park volunteer and superintendent were very helpful. Spot overlooking very dry Rio Grande. Small park, all filled on a March, Tuesday night. Close to Hatch and Las Cruces. Would definitely stay here. Yes, right next to a rumbling train track, several in afternoon and early evening. No blasting horn and none through night. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of paths, desert gardens, day use on dry river.

Sites with water/electric were full. The rate is for an undeveloped, flat dirt area where they allow RV's if you don't need hookups. Plenty of room to park/turn around. Train track nearby but only 1 train in evening and another later that night. This park is convenient to I-25 and OK for one or two night stay. Visitor center had a well stocked library for trading. Wasn't many conveniences nearby. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved my stay at Leasburg Dam. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful, as were my neighbors. I opted to dry camp in the the Agave Loop, where the sites are much more private and rustic and a mix between electric and non-electric. The Cactus Patch Loop is more of your traditional RV Park kind of vibe whereas Agave Loop feels more like State Park camping. I took a non-electric at the end of the Agave loop that was completely private and sat on a bluff overlooking the Rio Grande. It had a large pavilion with a picnic table and a fire ring made of rocks. The view/privacy were worth having no electric/water to me and the site cost $10 instead of $14. There was a fresh water spigot maybe 100 feet away. I stayed on a Saturday night, the campground was full and it was as quiet as can be. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent state park facility. Sites are nicely spaced, offering privacy because of location, not because of vegetation. Plenty of bird and animal activity. I put a bird feeder up and the birds went crazy! Convenient location to Las Cruces. White Sands NM is about 1 hour drive away. Hatch NM nearby if you need a supply of chiles. Gila Cliff Dwellings a nice day trip. Plenty to see on the 3 hour drive and the Cliff Dwellings are well worth the drive. Would stay here again. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. New Mexico does a great job providing sites with permanent shelters. Our camping area had pit toilets that were like brand new. Flush toilets and showers were back at the main bldg by the Visitor center - a short bike ride away from our spot. Nice walking trails and super helpful staff. Dring our stay in winter. WiFi was available in the Visitor Center but only from 12 pm to 4 pm, . Electric and water at our site were great. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Planned on staying one week; however, the electricity was extremely low (I have a digital power management system). So, we only stayed one night. The park ranger attempted to correct the power issue; but, was not successful. The park itself was clean and rustic (desert surroundings). The playground was small, but adequate. If the power was more reliable, I would have given this park a higher rating. Would stay here again only if the power was functioning properly. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are level, well-spaced, and quiet. Water and electric hookup, dump station available. Bathroom is clean. The area is scruffy, as is typical of that part of New Mexico. But it's still a nice campground and is only a short distance off of Interstate 25. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Reservation sites are pull-through, off street style parking that is slightly less private feeling than the first-come/first-serve sites (we stayed in both during this visit). All sites have covered and cement patios and fire pits. Our first spot (#19) had great; (free) wi-fi reception, but site #6 was spotty. Showers and bathrooms very clean. Great hiking to the dam. The towns of Hatch, Mesilla and Las Cruces are all close by (15 miles). Loved it so much we extended our stay 5 additional days. We will definitely return here. Price reflects water and electric (30amp) hookups. Dry camping sites available for $10/night. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

We used this park as a base for exploring elsewhere. Very clean, quiet place with very friendly and helpful staff. Really enjoyed our stay and stayed an extra day. Vistas from the camp are great. If you like desert camping, this is good place to stay. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

A really great stay if you like the desert. There isn't much to do except hike and enjoy the desert. There are lots of well maintained trails around the park, with informational spots, so you can learn a lot about the area. There are great views of the Rio Grande (pretty much dry this time of year this far south) and the dam. There is a train track and crossing nearby but the horns only added to the ambiance for us. We love trains. Each of the electric sites has a concrete pad with water and 30 amp and a ramada with picnic table and fire ring and grill. The sites are aligned front to back with lots of space. Very quiet and clean and beautiful views of New Mexico. There is a common sewer dump at the entrance. We will stay again. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I didn't see this state park through the same set of glasses other had on when they were there! For a state park, this is not at all scenic. The Rio Grande can't be seen, and it is nothing more than a damp stream bed, at least at this time of year. Yes, there are trails through a not very interesting desert. Views from the campground include a number of run down homes and structures. Sites are quite close together with little privacy but do have concrete pads and a shelter/ramada. If there is any wind it is very dusty (as at most desert campgrounds). Fairly good antenna TV reception from El Paso. We won't be back. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground with friendly and helpful state personnel and volunteers running it. The camp host was very personable and knowledgeable. One of the best we've ever met. Lots of nice walking trails, great children play area and camp facilities. We'll stay there again! We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, great staff, but fill your fresh water tank before you get there. Water is so bad it stained the side of my motorhome with iron. The water is seriously bad. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Delightful desert state park with friendly staff. Make sure you have the reservations done online or by phone, and call ahead if you do not have reservation. There is a complex NM state park system of being able to say only l night without reservation, then all further nights MUST be reserved online/phone plus $10.60 reservation fee per site. This is VERY close to Las Cruces - just zip south on I-25, also to Hatch. Eat at the Pepper Pot and Sparky's! Close to White Sands NP and also be sure to visit Aguirre Springs Canyon State Park nearby. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.
