This a very basic county park with 16 sites but it has full hookups (good 30 amp). Other than no WiFi or cable, it was similar to private parks except it charges about 1/2 as much. All are pull through sites, gravel and trees at most sites. No staff at site, but county manager was very accessible and accepted calls off-hours. He was also over every morning to clean bathrooms, etc. Nice playground for kids and fish in little lake. Trouble finding on our GPS, but website directions, include "turn at bed in road" worked perfectly! Train is close and does blow whistle, one night we heard about 4 times, the other only once. We camped at Escondida Lake Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice little town square/plaza in Socorro and beautiful mission church. My scientific husband said the mineral/gem museum at the college was one of the best in the country.

County park maintains eight power/water/sewer sites, not all in good repair. Our water spigot sprayed continuously from the packing nut (tried tightening it and failed). Half the spots have wonderful shade trees. Two one-holer restrooms, no showers or other facilities. Soap and paper towels both empty, neither toilet bowl has been cleaned since their ADA retrofit. Large kiddie playground. Concrete table at each site. I would have rated this park as quiet and relaxing if it weren't for the train horns that blow loud and long every 60-90 minutes along the tracks one lot over (happily, not between 11 PM and 7 AM). Hungry mosquitoes. TV reception poor, channels are few (no cable, of course). Park has a "campground host" on site, but he doesn't do maintenance. The three commercial "parks" in town are more like parking lots, adjacent to busy highways. And still this is our choice for the best of a bad selection in Socorro. We camped at Escondida Lake Park in a Travel Trailer.
