An overnight stop. Lots of RR noise. Sites are small. Staff was friendly, everything worked and park was clean. Would stay again but just for a night. - Brian & Corky

Stayed at this park twice now "the first and last" time. Pulled in after dark and had to get off the road as we were tired or would not have stayed. It was even more frightening when viewed in the light of day. As the other poster stated it is basically a gravel lot with a few sites delineated by using pieces of old poles laid flat and dug into the ground. Services were OK though. It appears that some of the other sites either have stored units or "long timers" as the grass and weeds were growing up on the sites.Also there were some older decrepit automobiles on the premises. We had no noise from the adjacent business (a Restaurant) but did have barking dogs and fairly constant train noise to deal with. Fortunately the very strong winds that night drowned out some of the other distractions. The office was "staffed" by an older free spirit who needed four presses of the night bell to respond and an old cat "alive or stuffed" we know not who occupied the office couch. When we asked about the free Wi-fi advertised the office Dude said "Oh that stuff never works" - Jonesz

Hours before we arrived we called this park for reservations and got a recording. Left a message but no one phoned back. We arrived about 1:00 PM. The office was closed with no note saying when they would be open and we were about to leave when a biker dude pulled up and told us to go ahead and pick out a spot and the office will open at 4:00. When I first saw him, I wondered where was his parole officer, but he was actually polite and well spoken so we did as instructed. This is basically a dirt and gravel parking lot behind a well worn motel where someone has installed 30/50 amp stations, sewer hookups, and cable TV. There is no shade and only a few struggling bushes dot the landscape. The sites were not roomy, but the park was not crowded so we did not feel badly taking up more than our space with our tow vehicle. Cable TV was provided, but there was no list of stations received. When I asked the desk clerk at the motel for a copy of channels received, he told me that they did not have any lists. "People keep stealing them." Alas, I fear I am also a thief, because I have kept many sheets of paper with TV listings on them without giving them back to the RV park. The place advertised WiFi, but there was no signal and no one to ask about it since the motel office was closed again when I discovered this. All in all, this park seems like an afterthought to the motel owners except the motel did not seem very prosperous either. My wife says the ugliest park seen so far. In Northern Arizona and New Mexico, this is a unique distinction. Furthermore, it is only a few yards from a very active railroad track, which offered train whistles every few minutes all night. To accompany this there was a loud band playing next door at Joseph's Restaurant, which thumped until 2:00 AM, followed by a cacophony of drunk people shouting at one another. In spite of all that the next morning, since it is a Route 66 landmark, we went to Joseph's for breakfast, which was under the same management as the RV park.. My wife ordered the continental breakfast. "Sorry, we are out of the ingredients for that. Wait, she didn't say she was "sorry," just out. Also out of pancakes. I ordered their "famous" biscuits and gravy, which were OK if a little bland. My wife ordered cinnamon toast, two pieces of toasted and dry wheat bread with a little butter, cinnamon, and sugar. We will not be returning to this idyllic spot. - bobbo789

Somehow I just can't say anything good about the owners or the park - so I will just refrain from saying anything. - rv time

Nice clean park with nice level spots. Nice place to relax. - Homawy

This is good for an overnight stop as there are no amenities. Many FHU but most not. The restrooms are centrally located and old, but clean. Sights are level and gravel. Water and power are fine. It's easy off and on the highway. They have a restaurant which will deliver to your site. The BBQ is OK.
All in all we would stay here again for an overnight. - SchnoodleCamp

This is a clean and quiet park, but as is typical of NM state parks, the layout and sites are a bit outdated. It took us a solid hour to get our triple-slideout 32ft travel trailer backed into A5 with leveling blocks because of the tree, rear charcoal grill, and wooden sideposts to maintain a dinette view of something other than the tree while having enough width for our opposing slideouts. One slideout is 1 inch from a side pole and the other is slightly touching the juniper on the other side.
Many sites are on the short side and many have front-to-back slope issues for longer trailers.
The host was very kind and helpful and I always saw him out picking up dog poop from empty sites. Verizon signal varies from site to site. In A5 we had a somewhat useable 3G signal which was a good 4G signal on our booster.
Sites A2, A4, A5, and A7 in the Rocky Point Electric loop have 50 amps, the rest in the loop have 30. The sites tending towards the southeastern half of the loop have water, the others do not, though there is a pullover in the loop to fill your tank. Only a few sites in this loop have a lake view. - Brad & Angela

There are several camping loops in this park, but only a few have electricity. About half of those also have water. Sites are well-spaced and good sized for the most part. A couple of the sites are a bit on the short side, however. Dish TV worked well here as did AT&T cell phone and Verizon MiFi. Most sites have covered picnic tables and grills. We will consider staying here again if we are in the area. - Bobbi1948

We booked this online for one night while traveling through the area and were pleased with the park. We booked a pull through site that was easy to get into and was long enough for our 5th wheel and our truck to park. They had a covered picnic table and BBQ grill available, but it was too hot to even consider going outside! There were also a lot of flies around. We thought the site would be 30 amp but discovered that it had adequate 50 amp service. There is water, but there was no sewer. There was a nice view of the lake from the site, but we did not drive down to it. The park is approx eight miles from town and was very quiet. We stayed in loop Rocky Point Electric, space A7. - PaLa
