There are three great things about this park: Location, Location, Location. Actually, I should add that the owner is also very nice. The only reason that I can come up with to stay at this park is the proximity to Basque del Apache Wildlife Refuge - a wonderful refuge. This park is as close as you can can get to the refuge without being inside, and it is pretty much the only game in town. The park is basic with the only amenity being bathrooms. We had originally planned on visiting during the Crane Festival, but it was full, as was everything else in the area, so we visited immediately after the Festival. The park has only 30 amp service and it is very weak. Apparently during the festival folks had issue with the power when the park was full. When we hooked up our voltage was very low, but acceptable. We had very good Verizon signal and data. No problem with satellite since there are few trees. The park is gravel and when we visited there were high winds with dust - not the parks fault but a reality. This is not a destination park but an OK place to stay for a few days while visiting the refuge. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping with Walmart and Smiths grocery is an easy 15 miles away in Socorro.

A short distance from the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, this campground may seem a little funky, but it is convenient, and the owner is great. If you need help, he's your guy. The area is gravel with adjacent sites but plenty of room. We stay there whenever we're in the area. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Just down the rode from Bosque Del Apache NWR. Pretty much by gravel lot. Sites spaced apart okay. 30 amp service only. Price reflects type of park - low end. Would stay again. Train horns up into nighttime. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times because it is convenient to the wildlife refuge and is often on our traveling route. It's a funky place, behind a family home; an open, gravel area with hookups but no frills. The refuge has great hiking, and the burgers in San Antonio are hard to beat. We will stay there again when in the area. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

No frills park very close to the Bosque del Apache, where we were attending the Festival of Cranes. No Internet, but our MiFi worked very well. Manager was very helpful and friendly. Restroom was clean and had a portable heater (much needed, as it snowed while we were there). No picnic tables, but large manufacturing spools for tables; it was too cold to sit outside anyway. Railroad very close with train whistles day and night, though not every night. Nice views of rural area, but rigs very close together so essentially no view to either side. We stayed a week and would return when we want to visit the Bosque again. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Really just a gravel lot in back of a home. They have 30 and 50 amp sites, but they are not marked and we set up at a 30 before we discovered the mistake. Friendly, but large, intrusive dog from neighbors stalked our dog and made walking difficult. Closest park to Bosque. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean park, level, gravel parking, spacious sites, full hook-ups, owners very helpful and nice. Wi-Fi Verizon card excellent! Good location to see the Bosque Reserve, El Camino Royal, and Fort Craig. The park is located across the street from a train track with loud, long, horn-blowing trains during the day and night. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very close to Bosque de Apache. Cheap place to park. No trees. No tables. No cable. No Wi-Fi. Basically a gravel lot with electric, water and sewer hook up. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We like this park, and this is our second trip. This place is no frills, but it's really close to the Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge which is a world class place to visit when the cranes and snow geese are wintering. Great owner, full hookups with some 50 amp. No showers but the birds won't care. When staying here you have to get a green chile cheeseburger at the Buckhorn Tavern as they are rated as #7in the US for burgers. We'll stay again.

This is a basic gravel parking lot. Sites were adequate, with back-to-back shared hookups. My price included a $3 up-charge for 50 amp electric service. The appeal of the park is its very close proximity to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. It is the only park in the area, and so that is where folks stay who want to visit the refuge. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good overnight stop for this part of NM. Nothing fancy, gravel lot, large open sites, some pull through, not all 50 amp so be sure to ask for that if you need it. San Antonio has 2 places to eat that are open around dinner time. A very small town with friendly people. Owner at RV park very helpful. Would stop here again for an overnight, we might have stayed longer if we had been here for birding season at the Bosque del Apache NWF. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Motorhome.

We are only here to visit the "Trinity Site" which is only open 2 weekends per year, once in April and one in October. The park is nothing to write home about, just a gravel lot with hookups. The road coming in from town is a little hairy if you're traveling in a big rig. This is not a destination stop, nothing here. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Motorhome.

The main feature of this CG is that it is adjacent to the Bosque de Apache National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is a tremendous and beautiful place, by the way. There is absolutely nothing special about this park--no cable TV no Wi-Fi ,no pool, etc., but we really liked it and even extended a day. The owner is really a great and helpful guy. The park is simply peaceful. Sites are super wide and great for all sized rigs. Another interesting fact is the small town of San Antonio boasts two restaurants with great chile cheeseburgers. I highly recommend a visitor try both. The Buckhorn tavern was featured on a Bobby Flay throw down (Bobby lost). Back to the park, we will return for another stay.

Older campground but perfect for being close to the birding area of Bosque de Apache Wildlife refuge. Had electricity, water, and dump which is all we need. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Motorhome.

Really the only reason we didn't give a 10 is because of the dirty restrooms and it's a little run down. The gentleman who welcomed us and was running the park could not have been nicer. We knew that there is nothing to do at this park by reading previous reviews. It's just full hookups, level gravel sites with great views of New Mexico's beauty and, it's adjacent to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. It's so close to the refuge that we could hear the flocks day and night. We saw lots of Sandhill Cranes and Canadian Snow Geese coming from and going to the refuge. It's quiet, although there is a train track right across the road, and 2 crossings nearby. We enjoyed the sounds and horns of occasional trains. Water and electric were good. No cable TV or Wi-Fi but we had good Verizon 3G and every site has a good shot to the southern sky for satellite dishes. Beware of GPS location for the park. Some maps show it north of Rt 380 on Rt 1, but it is 3 miles south of the blinking traffic light on 380 in San Antonio, on Rt 1. We will stay again for sure.
