My review is based on the fact that every place else we checked in the area was more expensive and not as convenient.
Since we have a self contained unit, all we need is water, electric and sewer and a safe place to park. Western Sky is at least that. Rosa is a sweetheart and very pleasant to deal with and, it appears, is single-handedly attempting to resurrect this place. Besides sleeping, we spent very little time here, so we were not looking for a resort setting. We would stay here again because Rosa was so accommodating. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of our AC units died during our stay which resulted in us having to stay an extra week while we waited for a replacement AC.
We highly recommend Bogart's Auto & RV Service Center in Las Cruces. Our appointment was for a Friday Morning and we were back at the campsite before 3 pm. If you need anything RV related, this is a good and reliable place for service.

This park is about 200 ft east of the freeway and even I had some trouble sleeping through the sounds of the exhaust brakes. It is dusty. There are a ton of full timers and we did not go near the restrooms. But because we have Passport America and got it at have price it wasn't horrible. Big park so there was a lot a room to walk the dog. Beware of ticks and stickers in the paws. Some trails to the north of park but was told to watch for snakes so did not take Mac there. Good power and water was decent for showers and cooking. Use satellite and cell phone for Wi-Fi so did not use. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Was going to stay in Las Cruces but the wife thought it would be quieter to the south. Yeah, right. Many things to see in area. Las Cruces has a number of nice breweries and museums. New Mexico State U is located there and it offers entertainment. White Sands National Monument I north east and well worth the visit,

This park is run down and OLD. It claims to have free Wi-Fi and cable. The Wi-Fi is spotty at best, and the cable is 2 channels of fuzzy TV. The water made my water heater smell of cow dung for a week after I left. The bathrooms were dark and unkempt. The noise coming from I-10 kept us up most of the night. The trees will scratch your RV they are planted too close to the spaces. Concrete pads are broken and cracked, the picnic tables are rickety and broken. The whole place is a dirt lot and very dusty/dirty. NO WAY I would ever stay here again. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Close to I-10. Too close. Traffic noise constant. Office staff somewhat helpful. No maps, rules or TV station listing. Our assigned site did not have cable. We were told we could have a cable site but it was next to the back of the office (?) and a trashy dog pen. Could find only 4 english speaking TV channels OTA. Campground is all dirt/sand/rock with small trees in most sites which are adequate in size but had to unhook toad. Electric and water are adequate. Wifi didn't work but good signals for Verizon and T-Mobile. Laundry is very disappointing. Trash in non working dryers. Only two of seven dryers are working. Good value for overnight stop at Passport America rate. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

An older park with a stark appearance. Located close to the interstate, which marks for highway noise, but handy to access. WiFi available, but accessing it depended upon where you were parked. No amenities to speak of. An okay place to park for overnight. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Best chili rellanos (rated as "best in New Mexico" by some folks) to be found at Chopes in nearby LaMesa, NM! (Yes, they are good!) Location of RV park is just over stateline from El Paso, and that city has plenty to offer.

This is a convenient park to I-10. It is a small park but water, sewer, and 50 amp power worked fine. The cable was not good and neither was the Wi-Fi. However there are beautiful views so didn't mind. We used our Verizon hot spot fine. Price was Passport America. We will return when we are traveling I-10 in New Mexico. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Passport America rate. Fine for overnight, as easy access to I-10. Old park but owner is out working on landscaping. Had to do a little pruning for slide out. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

We left Las Cruces at about 8 am, and 15 miles down the highway had to pull off due to extremely high winds. We found this place - only 1/2 mile from the truck stop where we had stopped. The owner allowed us to check in at 9 in the morning. This campground is very, very old and run-down, and it's apparent that the owner is attempting to manage and maintain it by herself. The restrooms, while clean, are ancient, and the doors/screens are dilapidated. Our site was a long, level pull-through. There are lots of full-timers, but they're all to the rear of the park. This was a fine place for an overnight while waiting for the winds to die down. It's across the freeway from a Family Dollar store, where we were able to pick up a few needed supplies. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I wanted to stay somewhere close to El Paso so I could deal with getting through there early in the day. Vado is very close. This park charges $38 a night, so one would expect something nice for the money. $38 is not in my budget, but I got in on the Passport America rate. I still expected something nice for my $19 as I often find nice, clean, tidy ones for half that. This park is run down, dusty, and surrounded by a hodgepodge of inaccessible buildings that may have one time been part of the park. My guess is that most of the people there are employed nearby. The pluses: The park is easy and close to get to from the freeway and easy to get back on the freeway. The site was level and hookups were easy to access. There are shade trees but being there late winter and the trees being bare, they were not something I could experience and comment on. In fairness to the managers/owners, my guess is that this is an old run down park they have taken over and may in time spruce up. It looked like construction materials had been brought in (or perhaps being removed? I don't know.) That being said, there is one thing they cannot fix and that is the odor coming from the feedlots down the road. This is not the place you will be sitting outside in the evening; though I noticed the odor was less pungent than earlier in the day. If you are like me, looking for a place west of El Paso to stop before braving the congestion --and don't mind paying more than your money's worth, this is an OK stop for one night--just keep your doors and windows closed. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Unfortunately I have to agree with the previous posts - this is a campground in rapid decline. We have been here before and found the place to be OK, but we could see how standards were slipping. Another thing is that the campground is very close to large areas filled with cows, and when we were there, there was a strong smell from the cows accompanied by ½ million flies. Next time we pass through this area we will find another place to stay, and there are plenty of them nearby. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park was in need of repair. They advertise cable TV, but it does not work. We could not find a game room or rec room that was advertised. The area smells foul because of feeder lots across the road. Flies were everywhere. Wi-Fi worked well in your RV. The water hook ups leak and were full of beetles. We would not stay there again. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our problems were: Dogs run loose in park and defecated on our steps. Several large, scarier dogs in pens beside some RV's. 50 AMP power good on 1 leg but poor on other one. Water was not good, bad smell/taste. Would not use again. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

72 sites with full hookups. 30& 50 amp. Laundry, Showers and bath, Cable and Wi-Fi. We stayed under Pass Port America and it was $20.00. That was way too much for this place as there isn't much. Sites are packed sand with trees all over. Some too close. All pull throughs but a little tight. Cable only has 3 channels but Wi-Fi works OK at your site. Verizon works good. Showers and bath not real clean and laundry the same and some machines not working. Does have a play ground for the kids but does not look too safe. Lots of long term sites and dogs all over and not on leash. So there is dog waste all over. Would not stay again. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

On the positive side, the sites are level and clean. Even though the interstate Hwy is close by, the traffic noise did not seem to carry over into the park. On the negative side, the Wi-Fi never worked or did the cable TV. Well OK, it had one channel. OTA worked OK, with about 5 or 6 English channel's. The repeater for the Wi-Fi seems to be adequate with a good signal, but it was local only: not connected via of ISP. I called the office and was given the excuse of cloud cover or something to that effect. The charge for the night was $19.00 with PPA which I think is a little high considering no TV or Wi-Fi. We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America (I pity others. This is definitely NOT a 40 dollar a night RV park. If you are willing to pay that much then find a KOA). This is an easy on / easy off park making it (barely) OK for a one night stay. The smell of nearby dairy operations went away when the wind shifted direction: yeah! The flies, however, remained behind until the evening got cold enough to stun them for a few hours; they clung to our clothes and lined up to march through the little gaps in our sliding window screens. You could park a 40 footer in a pull-through site but you would have to unhook your toad (we parked 36+CRV and barely fit). Lots of permanent sites. Dusty interior roads. In rig Wi-Fi is important to us; it ran fine for about an hour and then died. When I went to the office to tell them it was down, the fellow went in the back for a few minutes, came out to tell me it was "running but slow" and that I should keep trying for the next 30 minutes or an hour. It was NOT running; we could connect to the access point but had no internet connection. After a couple of hours the problem suddenly cleared up (I suspect others reported the same problem and they rebooted the modem/router.) We would not likely stay here again. Las Cruces, only 15 miles away, has lots of RV parks (and a Wal-mart). We camped at Western Sky's RV Park in a Motorhome.
