8 Parks near Roswell, New Mexico
Oct 2016 - $14.00
Where else can you get electric/water hookup and free wifi for $14? Not too many places, I suspect. This is a nice state park, well off the main road and so very quiet at night. The bathrooms were decent (showers are free!) but in desparate need of a good cleaning. Also, there are only grills and no fire pits. If not for the dirty bathrooms and lack of fire pit, I would have rated this place a 10. That said, I would stay here again. - MSSW

Pulled in without a reservation and treated very well with a choice of pull-through electrical and water, on Fathers Day.
Getting to this state park involves many winding curves but all were acceptable for our truck and trailer. Very popular lake for locals including rental boats. We arrived late in day so we spent no time in the water.
Getting here is "out of the way" but a value for the cost.
Our stay was for one night only. If in area again, we will strongly consider returning. - SemperParatus

Bottomless Lakes SP is about 10 miles east of Roswell, and then south along about 7 miles of paved roads, one at the base of a long abrupt ridge, and the better road on top of the ridge. At the base of the ridge there are 7 pothole lakes. Lea lake is the second largest and is the most southern where the CG is located. The lake is beautiful and the eastern cliffs rugged and impressive. By Lea lake there is a large semicircular pavilion/bath house and a large day area which during our stay was filled with some sort of a RV group rally. The campground is level with 2 loops well graveled with a shelter at each. 26 electric/water, 6 sites electric/water/sewer, and 3 no hookups. Two bathhouse, very clean with hot water. One dump. We had no bugs. It was a quiet pretty stay overnighter for us. Would stay there again. - 210jem

Just peaceful, quiet, wonderful high desert. Dry camping, wildflowers everywhere. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Recommend camping Monday through Friday, as it very quiet except on weekends. Best camping is at the end of road. Retired BLM camphost and wife from Tennessee, and they are great. - Bcoe

Small,clean, homey. Owners very helpful and friendly. Snacks on the honor system. Highly reccommended, will stay again if we are even close to the area. We are 15 year full timers, campers since forever. - Gordon W

Small but cozy RV park with very accommodating host. Second time we've stayed here. Last time was one year ago. The best thing about this RV park is the friendly park host. She had insightful recommendations for us in the area and was always willing to help. I would definitely stay here on our next trip through the area. - Bandanna Man

Small RV park just east of Roswell. Shady area with small grassy sites oriented around the property line. Two pull-through sites with a wooden fence gate in front so you can through when you leave.
Small/older buildings could be a former small farm house.
Very nice lady runs the park and does all she can to make the stay pleasant.
WiFi and Cell signals were good.
Small laundry and individual bath/shower rooms (one men's and one women's).
It's just a small quiet RV "park" on a rural road with about 60% of the RVs there staying on a monthly basis. - Creativepart

40.00 reflects daily rate. I stayed for month and it was$475.00 including tax , electric,cable,sewer,water. I read all the reviews twice,to make sure I was at the same park.This place was spotless. Very few permanent people,extremely quiet. New cable box's are included in the price . No deposit required. We had a few issues with it and park personnel handled it perfectly. Mass transit bus is one block away, 75 cents per trip. 2 miles from Albertsons grocery store , 3 miles to Walmart. Bus stop in front of each. UFO museum is must see - Ken wittick

This park appeared to be nice enough, but has challenges. We reserved a space online. I received no confirmation, so I called. They had no record of the reservation. Very nice person made a reservation for us over the phone. She never told me the price (stupid of me not to ask). We arrived after hours. No receipt was with our package. No code for bathroom. No code for wi-fi. Cable did not work at all. Nice dog park, though. Be sure to arrive during office hours so you can get the needed codes. - DAVISAFNM

This park is very quiet and peaceful. We parked here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The camp host was very nice and helpful. The sites are large and for the most part level. The wifi is okay. We had trouble the first night getting connected to the internet and while a bit slow it is working fine this morning. We will definitely camp here again. - Doug_C

The park was at about 50% capacity when we visited. The owner was very friendly. I was allowed to pick my own site. There was some shade, but mostly at the perimeter, back-in sites that appeared to be permanent guests. Poor wifi. Slow internet and frequently drops the connection even though the signal is strong. All sites level. Sites and roads are gravel. About average distance between sites. Your neighbors are close by. My pull-through site was barely long enough for my motorhome and toad. As others have mentioned, we would sometimes get a cow/manure smell from the area. Not overpowering, but unpleasant. There are nice grassy areas for walking the dog. Concrete slab with a plastic picnic table that was in pretty bad shape. It's an okay park. Nothing special. I thought it was expensive for what you get. - Phaeton2

Typical RV park. Wi-Fi is excellent. No cable TV although you get a few stations via the antenna. Owners friendly and accomadating. - hotpepperkid99

Site was level, hookups were OK, wifi was bad; often cutting out. Satellite TV required a $100 deposit to borrow a satellite box plus programming. After our first night, we witnessed weed chemicals being sprayed around our site so we could not walk our cat outside (the chemical used is described as causing diarrhea and vomiting in pets). Each morning, we were awakened at 5 am when the permanent residents would pull out in their big, noisy trucks. The train whistled for 30 minutes continuously at 10 pm and midnight. We had to keep our windows closed as per the smell from the cows next door. Many flies around some of which moved into our coach. The property adjoining the park is a field of loud, heavy equipment being operated 40 feet from our site at 7 am. The ground was stone and white dirt that tracked easily in our RV. Our plastic picnic table was cracked with pieces of the table on the ground. Our picnic table had a few large holes in it and could cut skin if sat on. After the weed kill spraying, we asked if we could leave one day early and get a refund for our 3rd night. We were told that their accountant prohibits refunds even though we had paid cash. We ended up staying 2 nights but paid for 3. When making the reservation and when checking in, we asked if we could pay for 2 nights with a possibility of extension for 3 nights and were that they expected to fill up so if we wanted a third night, we had to lock in and checkin. The park was all but empty, not crowded at all. Looked like all left in the park were permanent or long term; not tourists. - Dirt Biker

Ditto the other reviews. Easy access, water and power good. We had the place to ourselves. Lots of stickers, but the artificial turf and nice picnic tables, plus roomy site make up for any slight inconveniences.
Great for traveling Elks. - Bigrig43

The park has good hookups but the sites are overgrown with weeds with stickers and burrs. There are tables at each site on imitation turf which is a nice touch. Very level and would definitely use again for an overnighter. - Dick & Bev

Verizon and MiFi worked great. Good location and sites are fairly level and in good condition with gravel. Water pressure good and electric good power. Lodge offers lunch and dinner every night. Would suggest taking the bypass and take W. College ave to get to lodge easier than going through town. - margeandbob

Stopped here because this park accepts Passport America. Good value - short drive to Roswell. Basic park, small, no frills with gravel roads. Relatively level. Owner very friendly. Pull thus do not have sewer hookup. Some road noise, does not bother me but wife was sensitive to it. Looks like there are quite a few permanent residents. Watch out for stickers in the grass. Every time we enter the coach we brought in stickers and outdoor carpet was covered in them.. If in area would stay here again. - ECM1

Just a small stop in an area that doesn't have any tourist draws, except it is close to Roswell. The park was fine for an overnight stop. A serious wind storm blew threw in the afternoon after we arrived. Locals told us that it is generally very windy there. - Chiango

This is a super well maintained park about 6 miles from Roswell. I don't think they have restrooms or showers so best if your rig is self contained. No sewer for pull thrus. The host was very welcoming and friendly. Seems like many perm residents but they were friendly and kept their dogs fenced or on leash. We enjoyed our stay. However, at times the smell of cows was over powering. Strange because you can't hear or see them but sure could smell them! At other times, no smell at all. We had a nice tree for some shade and a big yard. No fire pits. Great sunsets. Roswell has a wierd vibe. We were happy to move on. We would stay here again if we were to pass thru. - Jenn and Lance Grimm

Can't beat the price at $15 a night, but it is a very unusual park. Lots of people use the park during the day and at night there is some traffic. This park is in the middle of dairy country and when the wind is right the cow manure smell is pretty strong. The park and pond are great though. Hookups were sufficient but on the old side. 30 amp only. Fine for a couple of nights stay. - Lee and Trace

This is a small 50 acre lake operated by the city of Dexter with easy access by paved roads. Fishing (trout-winter, bass-summer) stocked by NM Game & Fish. Newly completed ADA restroom facility. Boating (up to 18', and jet-skis) in summer months, 4 fishing/boat docks. Dry camping all around the lakefront. Pets must be leashed as a lot of locals walk the road each morning/evening. Day trips to Carlsbad Caverns and many other area attractions. RV spots are back-in and have morning shade. A nice pavilion and gazebo also available. Nice place! - pivotdoc
