Back in sites are short and not level at all. Quiet park. Pretty. 10 miles off the interstate. If a site is available, it is only for one night at a time, but still redeemable by anyone for the next night. Make reservations or you'll be moving. Verizon cell signal is 1 bar at 1x....if your lucky. Quiet, pretty, peaceful. Make reservations. A10, A14 looked level enough. A15, A17 are very sloped. A15 was shorter than stated. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

It appears that a lot of money has been put into developing this park, but it's certainly not being used to its potential. The road leading to Rocky Point Campground is windy. The website stated first come/first serve, but that wasn't the case when we were there in late March. If you arrive and a site is open for that particular night, you can have it that night, but you have to move along or change sites the following day if that site is reserved for the next night. So, not truly first come/first serve. Site numbers are located on the picnic table in Loop A. Loop A was the only open loop for the one night we were there. The camp host was awesome! Some sites have 30 amp and some have 50 amp electric, water is available from spigots located throughout the park, and there is a dump station. There is a covered picnic table with grill at each site; however, no fires were allowed during the time we were there. Interior roads are asphalt, as are sites. We thought the road in loop A was a bit narrow for our 40' motor home, but we managed. Some sites are more level than others. Verizon data and cell service were excellent, but we do have a booster. There was no hot water in the men's shower room. The sign stating "hot water heater not functioning" appeared to have been there quite a while. Loop B wasn't open during the time we were there, but is dry camping. Maybe that is the loop that is intended to be first come/first serve? Those sites have a covered picnic table with grill. There are a variety of sites, short/long, pull-through/backin, level/unlevel. There is another camping area that was closed too. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here over New Years holiday. Had stayed at the exact same site here almost 20 years ago and enjoyed it just as much this time. Nice view, good facilities. Got very cold but that's January. No sewer. Some sites have water, all have electric. No sewer. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

No host on duty, but park and facilities were clean. There is construction throughout the loop A with electrical, but it's to upgrade to 50 amp, so great. Most sites back in, currently no reservations due to construction so right now ( June 2017) it's first come first serve basis. That will change I'm sure when they get project done ( looks like 1/2 approx. To me). Nice, quiet,. Convenient for motorhome with tow. Had to unhook of course. Would stay again. Good rate, but no water/ sewer at sites. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Go see the " blue hole" and route 66 car museum if you're into cars at all. I'm a gearhead so.....$ 5.00 was good deal.

We were here in January when snow was on the ground. Roads and sites were kept clear in the Rocky Point A Loop. There was power at every site but water was at a central fill point. Camp host on site. Restrooms and showers were clean; we were one of three campers in park, including host.

Sites have covered picnic tables.

We were treated to a beautiful sunset view of the lake. Campground is about 20 minutes from town. Nice road to campground. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Several of the sites are very short and unlevel, so be careful picking your site. Most sites have no water, a small select few grouped close at the entrance have water. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Some sites have covered picnic tables (they do not stop the rain though, they leak bad), and others do not have them.

A lot of room between sites, 30A, water, dump station. No hot water at showers. About 8 miles off I-40, worth the drive to a very nice setting. Hiking trails. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

For $14 we got water, electricity, a large private site, clean but old bath house, nice host, hiking trails, playground, covered table, no traffic sounds and a lake view campsite all just a few miles off of I-40. If that doesn't rate a 10 I don't know what does! I think some people who have posted negative reviews mixed this NM State Park with the private Santa Rosa RV park. This is high dessert country in a poor state. Those "weeds" are what grows here. Cut them down and the topsoil blows away CO AZ and CA have fancier state parks but they charge a lot more. With the lake back up this park is once more popular with locals. Reservations are recommended if you want W&E. BTW the lake was down because of a severe drought in the SW. Drought is an act of God folks. The state park has no control over the rainfall. This is one of my favorite stopovers. We will be back. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Distant views of the lake. Most sites are reasonably level and spacious. Very sturdy stone shelter at each site, with a large cement picnic table underneath. About a 7 mile drive north of I-40, but your reward is a quiet campground at the very fair rate of only $14 for a level water and electric hookup. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

No frills, nice, clean, economical and relatively close to Hwy. We had pull thru site A4, and it was not level and we had electrical issues after dark. Not crowded, no problem finding a walk up site. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park that is a reasonably easy overnight stop from the Interstate. Very quiet with great sweeping vista views. Each site has a brick shelter over the picnic table. The town of Santa Rosa has seen better days, but still has a few interesting attractions including a few deep water swimming "holes" that some even go scuba diving in! We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed our stay here. Spacious, private, level sites, excellent picnic shelters. Very quiet and pleasant scenery. The campground is not near the lake, so don't expect water views. Our site did not have fresh water available, but this was not an issue since we came in with a full tank. A slow but adequate internet signal on both Verizon and ATT without use of antenna or booster. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our 2nd trip to Santa Rosa State Park. And like the first time, we enjoyed it very much. We chose a site at the far end, had only 30 amp and no water, but that was fine. Walked a couple trails and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Several pull throughs, and the back-ins are easy to negotiate as well, spacious and with a covered picnic table. We will stay again when in the area. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
