5 RV Parks near Rociada, New Mexico

Pendaries is the most peaceful RV park we've experienced. The sites and trees are huge. There are plenty of places for serious hikes; some from the RV park property into the forest. The views from the steep hike to the old turquoise mine are gorgeous (access the trail between sites 28 and 29). Pendaries is more private residences than RV park. T-Mobile does not work in the park. There is no OTA TV but some sites do have a clear shot for satellite TV. The Pendaries golf resort across the street offers some seasonal restaurant opportunities and social functions like a car show, chili cook-off, etc. There is an abundance of nature and quiet; we've seen bears, turkeys, birds, etc. The park office offers a few camp store supplies, books and videos. There is a clubhouse and the private residence owners invite the RV park visitors to their social functions like pot luck dinner, ice cream social, etc. Everyone is very friendly. I esp. like that there are no campfires in Pendaries so my RV and lungs don't get filled up with smoke. - Dirt Biker

Pendaries is a beautiful, quiet, well maintained RV Resort with spacious sites, lots of trees, green space and flowers. My husband, our dog and I spent one night here on our way to Colorado and simply loved it. We plan to make this a destination RV Resort in the future and spend time exploring the surrounding wilderness area from this lovely place. Highly recommended. - mudd

Half the park was closed off due to the time of year but they still had a number of sites available with water. Some also had electric. Sites also had a great shelter with large table plus a fire pit. All sites had views of the lake. Good cellphone reception. Very level site. - Kiwijo

One great feature is they let anyone, even large RV's dry camp right on the shoreline, so you're pretty much guaranteed a spot. The dump station is closed until further notice. I recommend the S SITES. they are all pull thru and plenty of room for any rig. Be advised the wind can really blow here. Even S sites are on water side of road, odd are on other side but still have a view. Very nice hosts also. - 7 on the road

We camped here for one night on our way to Arizona in October. Gates close at 5pm - not sure if this is seasonal. Galina CG closed, but South Area CG open. There was only one other camper in the campground! Water off at site, but drinking water available near entry to campground (spigot with hose threads). Dump station closed. Electric at site as well as a picnic table in a shelter.
The sites are large - some might be a bit hard to get into (tight turns) - it's almost easier to come in the wrong way on the road. Not all sites are electric - so choose carefully.
Even though the CG is somewhat near the road between Taos and Las Vegas (Hwy 518), there was hardly any traffic noise at night.
Cell service (Verizon) - at least one bar LTE. Tailgater satellite dish worked well. View of lake and hills to the west. Pleasant place for a one-night stay. - chinookgeo

I didn't actually stay overnite at this RV park, but utilized them for a mechanical emergency which happened on the road, about an hour north of Las Vegas, NM. Limping into the RV park hauling my 5th wheel, they were completely booked, but were kind enough to let me unhook and take just the truck to a nearby mechanic for what turned out to be a quick fix. Not knowing what that 'emergency' might entail, the owner was friendly enough to say "let's see what you need", meaning as I took it, that he would arrange for something for me, in the worst case scenario. This RV park is pretty bare bones, but with mostly pull-thru spots and long term storage along the edges. They have their own restrooms and showers, and while I did not enter the women's, the men's was clean if not like something newly built. I really can't say enough good about the friendly, helpful attitude of the owner. He directed me to the best mechanic available, steering me away from one he thought would overcharge me, and after two hours parked on his property, wished me well and sent me on my way with no further charge. I'd stay here (again?), when I find myself again in the area, 550 miles from home. - whetstonedoug

City RV park with a lot of road noise. Sits on a very busy highway and it can be a little difficult get out of during the day. All the utilities worked okay, but sites are close together. It rained while we were there and it did get muddy. - JC69

Fine for an overnight stop. The campground needs a lot of TLC. There were weeds everywhere, cigarette butts littered the site, beer caps, etc. They were all pull thru, full hook up sites. Located right in town and across from Walmart , so easy access to shopping. I guess for $25 I would stay again. - TravelingDonna

This campground is actually located 21 miles north of Pecos NM on Highway 63 and Forest Road 555. The last 5 miles are on a one lane highway, but the road is wide and there are pull outs to make passing other vehicles easy. The campground host is wonderful. He will help you find a site if needed and will also let you hook up to the electricity on the second host site if it isn't being used. The forest setting is beautiful and campsites are large and well-spaced. Altitude is about 8800 feet, so the weather is cooler in the summer than it is at lower altitudes. We plan on coming here again when we pass through the area next year. - Bobbi1948

I can't believe I paid $40 for a W/E even with the discount. This place is a mudhole when it rains, which apparently is does a lot. Sites are tight and not level. Many seasonal units, although I can't imagine why. I wonder if the health department ever checks their "food service?" We walked by and decided to pass. Lots of highway noise; could hear it over the white noise on my phone right next to my head. On the positive side, the gentleman checking us in was very nice and helpful. We would never come back. - Dream2RV

Good spot; however, leaving was a challenge. Interior roads in horrible shape due to huge ruts and trees in exit path. Didn't plan on going "off-roading" in my 41.5 ft motorhome.
Spacious lots with a sunny/open exposures. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - Joyce Springer

.We were in site 48. We were only staying one night, but we had to unhook the car so we could maneuver the RV enough to get level. We were here a few years ago. At that time we were in one of the sites in the front. Those sites, sites 1 through 7, are much more level. Our site was mostly dirt with some gravel in it. When it rained, the whole park was muddy. Needless to say, we were not happy and will probably not be back. - mrpeepers
