6 Parks near Roswell, New Mexico
Nov 2015 - $14.00
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

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 just stayed overnight but it was a great spot. Close to town for all the sightseeing we wanted to do. It's a VERY small park...13 sites, per the owner. So make a reservation. She knew we had a big rig and parked us in one of the pull throughs. You pull up to a gate and when it's time to leave, you open the gate and pull out onto the road. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and even came out as we were leaving to tend the gate for us. However, you can pull across the street, if necessary. Pretty quiet location although it is on a main road. The dog walking trail is outside the park. You exit through the back and walk along the dirt road next to the farm field. My dog loved it. Couldn't get satellite here due to the trees, but no big deal for 1 nite. And they do have cable. We'd definitely stay here again. Very comfortable. - Danni

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

This was just an overnight stop for us, passing through to Arizona. They had 20" of snow just a couple of weeks before and everything was very muddy. Of course, not the park's fault, but the situation could have been improved with some paving. All gravel sites and roads. There was a narrow concrete patio area with a table. Restroom was clean but could have used a fresh coat of paint. Check in was fast and friendly. Sites are close together. We would return if just needing an overnight stop. - starwind

This is a pretty average RV Park. Clean and well-kept. Check-in was fast and friendly. The sites are pretty close together but not terrible. The sites are all gravel and ours was very level. There are a few areas with a little grass for the dogs. The hookups were conveniently located and worked fine. The restroom was clean as were the showers but I didn't use them so can't comment. The laundry room was clean. Three decent sized washers at $1.25 each and four dryers at $1.50 for 45 minutes. No vending machine so bring your own supplies. No coin machine either; ask at the office if you need change. The best part of the place is its convenient location right near downtown Roswell. Seems like most of the back in sites around the edge are used by the long-term residents and the two rows of pull thrus are for the short stays. Wi-fi worked real well most of the time and Verizon was about 3 bars. I would definitely stay again since I don't think there are any better options and it's so close to town. - Pdxjoanne

This used to be a regular stop on our way from Chicago to Tucson in the fall, then we started going via Denver to see family. So after several years we were pleased to find that the park has expanded, along with being as nice and friendly as ever. New pull through sites are longer, easier to access and dead level, did not even unhitch. - Dennis M
