We were only going to stay for one week, but once we got there, we stayed several months especially after finding all the hot springs. We were on the top tier which was great for the view and to get out of the NM wind during the Winter. It was very peaceful here. We found everything to be in good working order. This is by far the best place in TorC. You can walk into town, but note you are on a hill. The water hook ups are a little cumbersome but doable. They read the meter when you stay monthly - $0.17/KW. The owner keeps a good watch on the park. There are long term residents here (like the other parks), but they keep to themselves. The owner tries to keep the rigs separated unless she is really busy, so you don't feel like you're right on top of each other. The spacing is above average between the rigs too. No picnic table at our site. The sites "up top" were all pull-through. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a small town and runs on it's own funky vibe and time schedule. You have to make it by Casa Taco in Elephant Butte! Fresh food, which is something you have to hunt for in TorC. Passion Pie is great for all things baked and pretty much organic. The coffee is awesome, and if you bring your refillable cup, they'll use it. They can get busy/backed up, so be prepared and relax. River Bend Hot Springs is THE place to soak. Rent a private tub. You won't regret it.

Loved the site we were given. It was on their "third level" and looked out on the city below. All the hookups worked well, including cable. The gravel sites are extremely wide so that you're not close to anyone. Loved that! Would stay here again. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Highly recommend the El Camino Real Historic Trail Site just south of here.
There's an excellent museum and it's not well-known, but well worth your time.

Nice quiet park on a hill overlooking the small town of Truth or Consequences, NM. Nice view. Within walking distances from grocery store and other local shops bath houses if you’re able to walk ¼ mile. Wal-Mart located two miles north. Free phone usage for 800 numbers and local calls. No Wi-Fi. The owner charges $20/month extra if you want to use her dirty showers. Laundry room with washers/dryers, but owner prefers you use the clothesline outside to keep her energy cost down (I preferred the dryers). Ownership/management/park host – not very customer oriented, rarely in office. The picture of the restrooms on the park's web site is not of their restrooms. Issue # 1: Sewer drain clogged, we called at night, but told him it would wait until morning. When we didn’t receive a call or visit, we called to inquire about it once more. Instead of hearing: “We’re sorry, we’ll be over to check it out,” the response we got was: “Nobody else is complaining but you.” When he did come over to fix the problem, he had no sense of urgency, showed up with an auger that didn’t work, and I caught him using my drinking water hose, with the end six inches down the sewer drain. Issue #2: As I was coming from the restroom one day, I was “greeted” by a woman asking me “Where do you belong?” I stated who I was and where my site was. She stated that she’d met my husband but not me. I smiled, shook her hand and said that I had talked to her when I made the reservations. I understood her desire to protect her property; however I was taken aback by her aggressive approach. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Stayed here a couple of nights. Great location with spectacular views of the city, with twinkly lights below. Really could be a nice place with a little work. Sites are flat and utilities work fine. Walking distance to downtown. Downside: there is one bathroom for women and one for men for all 70+ sites and they have no locks on the doors. The single toilet in each has a shower curtain around it instead of a door, so forget about privacy. Anyone interested in taking a shower must pass through the "toilet room" even if someone is using the toilet behind a shower curtain, to get into the shower stalls. Very awkward. Worst bathroom arrangement I have seen. Clubhouse was dated and uninviting. Very little traffic passed through while we were there. Just a few long-term RVs parked there. The lady at the front desk was unfriendly although another man who helped us to our site was great as was a handyman of some sort who worked there. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have used this place for overnights several times in the past and given a higher rating. Downside is that they say they have WiFi and they do not really have it; MAYBE down in the office. And the TV hookup did not work on the upper level which is where you are generally sent (we just wanted to see the news). OK for overnight in any case if you can live with this. We don't use the restrooms; what has been said about them is true. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very basic place but looks better than the ones shoe-horned on the main drag through town. This is up a hill, with a pretty view and quiet. Sites seem big enough and cable TV is welcome though doesn't always work well at every site. No Wi-Fi but Verizon air card works. Only real complaint is the outdated bathroom with a shower curtain over the single toilet. Fine for overnights, would never spend a cold,windy winter here.

Older facility with the basics only - no WiFi, small, older restrooms, etc. Upper level FHU pull-through sites are large and level. We use it for overnight only - see no reason to stay there any longer. Take cash or check only. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Even though we called ahead and were on time, the owner was curt and generally unpleasant, banging on our door at 11:00 AM to see if we were staying another night. The park is overpriced, isolated and not an easy walk to anywhere, we would not stay there again. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clean, older park, fine for overnights or short stays. Can't see spending a whole RV winter in windy, cold central NM, but people do. Loved the cable TV here, owner is very helpful and friendly, and there was a nice fresh vegetable stand in the Alco parking lot downhill. We'll stop here whenever in the area.

This seems to the best of the parks in town. Typical of SW gravel/dirt parking spaces and roads. There is a view from the terraced park levels overlooking the town. That said, most sites are either backed up to or looking out the front window to dirt cliffs. The staff is helpful, the buildings well kept and the sites wide for slides. There is zero buffer between sites but there is a small concrete pad and picnic table at each site. For an overnight, it's an OK place with good electric, water and 60 channel cable TV. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here a couple of nights on our way to Texas last winter. Called to make sure that it was within walking distance to town and restaurants. When we got here we discovered that it was way up a hill that was very steep for walking, especially for older persons. The person who checked us in, said that the closest restaurant was at the bottom of the hill, a carry-out burger joint. Any real restaurant was 4-5 blocks beyond the hill. No comment from her when I said that walking distance was not this far or difficult. Would not stay here again. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice, well kept park. Very close and within walking distance to downtown T or C and within reach of the Hot Springs bath type and massage facilities which is an industry in this small town. This park is also within walking distance of the grocery store, downtown cafes and artist studios and stores etc. The people running this place are friendly and helpful,. It would be nice if it had a few more trees, but the facility is definitely well kept and well worth the money. T or C has the most amount of older vintage motorhomes of any place I have ever been.

Overall a nice older park with good views. Clean, neat and a friendly manager. Being in the Southwest, stickers are inevitable but there seems to be little or no effort to contain them. You cannot walk your dog in any grassy areas without them getting stickers. No WiFi is my only other complaint. We camped at Cielo Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
