2 Parks near Rodeo, New Mexico
Feb 2015 - $20.00
We stayed at this small RV park next to the lodges for a month in early 2015 in our 24 ft motor home while we explored the fabulous nearby Chiricahua Mountains. The park - which has 4 full-service, back-in spots - offers comfortable, friendly, and affordable accommodations in a quiet, beautiful corner of New Mexico. The park is within walking distance of a tavern and a cafe/convenience store - both serve good food. We plan to come back to Mountain Valley again next year. The $20 rate is their current daily rate; we paid a considerably discounted rate for a month's stay. - Wisconsin Travelers

Rate shown is for a month's stay. This is our third visit to this park. The owners are in residence, and pride of ownership shows. They work very hard to make their guests feel at home. Sites are very large and in pairs, but the hookups are staggered so that you are not close to your neighbor. Roads and sites are dirt - it is the desert, after all. There are many ornamental trees on the property, but there is no shade. There is a swim/spa available for use. The owners host a social on Friday evening - they provide an entree and visitors provide side dishes and desserts. It is a good opportunity to meet other travelers. Shades in your RV must be closed in the evening and outside lights are not allowed - the area attracts a lot of visitors who are interested in astronomy. These rules allow for magnificent views of the night sky. It is about 50 miles to a large grocery, so meal planning is advised. This is a perfect place for solitude. The only problem is the wi-fi, which was not very reliable during our stay. The owners are working to find a solution to the problem, and expect to have improvements shortly. We love this park and will always choose to stay here when we visit southern New Mexico. - 4windstrvlr

Our first stay at Rusty's RV Ranch! And I have to say, this is a great park that should be busier. Right on the edge of the Coronado National Forest, close to Chiricahua National Monument. Just a great location.
The spaces are very large, and they're all pull through. Great water pressure (sometimes you don't see that) Wi-Fi throughout the park, and fantastic views. If you're into star photography this is the place too.
The owner was very informative when we arrived. She gave us a map of the area, told us about all the birding here, and gave us a few day trip ideas. She was beyond super friendly, and her attitude toward guests set the tone for our stay. Excellent! - RichC

Love love love this park! Yes, it is in the middle of nowhere and you have to drive an hour to get to the nearest store, but that's part of the charm. Perfect spot to explore the eastern side of the Chiricahua mountains (drive up to Portal and on in towards the forest - you won't regret it). Huge, long spots and even though you are close to your neighbor on one side. There's so much space on the other three sides, you won't care. Beautiful clubhouse area with Koi pond and plants, and cages of parrots. Sky so dark at night you can see the Milky Way.
My 9 year old and 11 year old city kids proclaimed that they would happily live at Rusty's forever. Be aware of the geese, though. They are very aggressive and will chase after you (or your kids). And if you don't like parrots and their squawking, don't get a site next to the clubhouse! - GrowFam
