6 Parks near Roswell, New Mexico
Feb 2016 - $14.00
About 7-8 miles off the main road but the roads are paved. Half of the spaces are reserved camping and half are on a first-come first-serve basis: some are pull through sites suitable for larger rigs. Most have electric and water, only a few have sewer also but there is a dump station at the entrance/exit of the park. The spaces are wide and have a picnic table and a permeate open gazebo on a cement pad next to the space. Its about a 20-25 min drive to Roswell. Good cell service for both AT&T and T-Mobile. - jpm777

Half reserved camping and half first come first serve. About 1/3 are pull through sites. Suitable for larger rigs. Lakes are nice. Visitor center is small but informative. Some of the displays are hands on so children won't be so bored. Visitor center hours sporadic during the off season. Nice setting to stay a few days. Cons are some flies and occasionally mosquitoes in the evening. Also lots of puncture vine so keep your pets on the gravel. Campground was nearly full the first weekend we were there but after that never more than 50% of capacity. - fander

Great Campground - HOWEVER - We had over 100 flies in our RV. The camp host told us that it is even worse in the summer. Reason - dairy farms. A peaceful and beautiful spot it was not as we were constantly swatting flies inside and outside of the RV. We were in a pull through (#26) which was very long and wide. There was a shaded picnic table too. We had a nice long hike with the dogs. The lake is beautiful and the campsite way right by the lake. There is a swimming area. You may also kayak and I believe in summer that they rent kayaks. On Tues, 10/27, we were awoken by loud booms. Every time there was a boom, my dogs barked. Sounded like pile drivers. Not, it was the opening of duck hunting season. - Nicrisgirl

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

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 (about 12 sites), clean RV park just east of Roswell. Should call ahead to ensure there is room as they tend to have all sites filled each night. Although small, our 40ft (and others) fit comfortably. The owner is updating bathrooms and office area. WI-FI was great! Sites are gravel and level. Water quality was good. There was a big field out back where we could run our hunting dog. We would definitely recommend and come again! - Gma Linda

I am sure that this is the smallest RV Park we have stayed at; it is almost cute. There are 15 spaces, two are pull-through, but are very short. All sites are full hookup, level gravel. The park is a real jewel, flowers and grass between each site. It is very clean and neat, almost prim. The owners live on site, it is rather like camping in their backyard. The wife will check you in then help you into your site and wait till you are all settled. Friendly seems trite when referring to this park.
The park is surrounded by big, mature trees and a white board fence.
The sites are close but not unreasonable with a picnic table and a grass lawn between each unit. The roads are gravel; it is easy off, easy on the highway, which is just outside the park but a high solid fence buffers the sound. We never heard any traffic.
The cable tv is great! Many clear channels, 80+. Wi-Fi is excellent, very consistent.
This is definitely a call first, get a reservation stop. About half the sites are long term or permanent.
The office and store as well as the bathrooms and laundry are all in a diminutive sort of hobby barn. It is really attractive inside, very interesting, with comfy furniture for visiting or tv watching. All the treats in the store are honor system...of course.
There is a single bathroom/shower each for men and women. They are simple and rather dated, but meticulously clean and quite comfortable. We used the bathroom and shower, lots of hot water.
The park is backed by farm fields and well lit at night; seems quite secure.
Roswell is kind of phony with its green aliens, this is a genuine good park. - Jack B

Small facility. We had pull through, packed gravel site that was level. Convenient connections. Wifi worked well. Would stay here again. A good overnight stop. - MSTraveler

We stayed in the "new" section which is at the back of the park. That part has nice wide concrete driveways and gravel sites. Not exactly level even as it seems they could have been made level. The seem to have a hump in the middle. Wi-Fi was almost unusable, super slow. Restrooms were nice and the entire new section is clean. They have an extensive selection of DVDs which they lend out. - Coopsecondact

What a pleasant experience. We stayed in the back lot which is new. There is no grass in the new section. Very clean, new concrete roads, level gravel drive thru lots with sufficient room (very organized), good wifi, nice showers/bathrooms, good cable, nice dog run (with lots of grass), friendly & helpful staff. Easy to find. In town, yet fairly quiet. We would recommend this park. - Lunchy

The park has an older and newer section. The older part has mature trees the newer has younger ones. The roads a gravel and cement combination The sites are nice gravel. The sites all appear to be side by side, they are long and average width. We were here in some heavy rain and had no problem with water. Having looked around the area we think this is the best park to stay in while visiting Roswell. The office is very nice and friendly. We will stay again. - JDR

Small quiet campground, almost level small diameter gravel sites, with gravel islands separating the sites containing a picnic table. Our rig is facing northwest, which is OK in March, but would be a scorcher in the summer. (We try to aim either the front or rear towards the setting sun, and they do have sites that would enable that orientation.) Check-in was easy and we received LOTS of suggestions on how to make the most of our stay. Discount for cash payment. - cherib

Nice quiet and clean park with friendly and helpful staff (owner). Like others have stated, level sites on gravel with a very small place for the picnic table and limited walk areas for the dogs. We would stay here again. - Gone to the Dog Show

Friendly staff. Long level pull throughs. Tight quarters on hook up side. Spotty wifi. Good cable. Very east end of town. - arkietraveler
