Beautiful location, very close to lake swimming. We stayed over night. Paid $16 for a full hookup (water & 30 amp service). Showers and toilets were in good shape and clean. Covered benches and grills. It looks like your choices of camping areas are greater if you don't need hookups. We needed power the run the AC because it was HOT!! The park is isolated (no cell service, no TV, no wifi), so plan accordingly. We camped at Conchas Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring your own entertainment because this place is isolated: no TV, no wifi, no cell service (Verizon). I saw a big RV parked at the water's edge, so it looks like you can stay almost anywhere if you're self-sufficient. Reservations were not necessary for us, but are highly recommended for the more scenic spots. Ideal for boating and fishing in the area.

$4 per night using the out-of-state NM annual camping permit (regular price is $14) was for a 50A electric and water site on a level large gravel site. In addition, the generously sized site had a sheltered picnic table with a pedestal BBQ grill (which could not be used as they had a no wood or charcoal burning ban due to extremely high fire danger). There is a dump station at the campground entrance. The campground host was very helpful and friendly. Many sites overlook Conchas Lake and there are primitive sites at the lake's edge. The scenery includes many shortish coniferous trees and desert plants among the large rock strewn landscape. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. The night sky is gorgeous as are the sunsets. The park was very quiet during our stay but I can imagine lots of noise in the summer. During our stay, there were high winds on several days including one night with wind gusts of 45 mph. The ranger led tour of the dam was informative and interesting. The campground is 35 miles west of Tucumcari, NM which offers limited shopping and dining. We received five bars of Edge on our AT&T cell phone which was sufficient for talking and texting. We received no service on our Millenicom jet pack. The park advertised Wi-Fi but it will not be up and running until May 6. There was Wi-Fi available at the marina store and the 104 store. OTA TV brought in 2 analog and 2 digital channels. We camped at Conchas Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Conchas Lake has numerous areas to camp. There are 104 developed sites and 41 electric and water sites. The campgrounds are located in various areas of the lake. I believe there’s primitive camping along the shoreline in some areas. The area we stayed in was Bell Point campground which has power and water hookups. Each site has a 3 sided shelter with a picnic table on a concrete slab and a pedestal BBQ near the shelter. It’s very dusty when breezy, interior road is dirt and no one seems to drive slow through the campground. Some sites are closer together then others, some are pull thrus, but most are back ins. ALL sites are on a reservation system which was a pain since there wasn't any cell/internet service there. The gal in the Park Office was nice enough to let me use their phone to make a reservation. If you just need a site for one night and sites are available (the post at each site has a green vacant sign or red occupied sign on them), go to the park office. It’s located further down the main road on the left. There’s a marina with a grocery/tackle shop/lounge/diner. There’s also a phone booth outside which we needed to use since it was Mother’s Day. Weekends are very busy but midweek was quiet. Nice views of the lake and surrounding area. You might want to use your water pump when showering, pressure wasn’t that great. While there we saw people boating, fishing and water skiing. Dump Station is located across from the campground entrance. Make sure you‘re stocked up with food since the closest town is in Tucumcari, which is about 35 miles away. We would stay here again but only midweek. We camped at Conchas Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
