3 Parks near Villanueva, New Mexico
Oct 2015 - $14.00
This is a gem of a state park. It is well off the beaten path, down in a valley surrounded by limestone cliffs and adjoins the Pecos river.
The sites are generously sized and easy to access. The dump station was neat and well organized.
The road fro I25 down to the park is a bit of a challenge but our 31' TT did just fine. - n2916s

Almost a hidden gem, this campsite. Friendly & helpful ranger. Quiet and spacious campsite with marvellous views along the Pecos River. We did enjoy a few small hikes (not too difficult) and certainly the dolce far niente atmosphere here.
Travelling through we camped here for two nights. - Eisenga

We really enjoyed this park. The park is a little bit of a trek to get to, and you drive through the little town/village of Villanueva which looks like a little town plucked out of Central America with run down houses and shanties. Once in the park: it's a beautiful little park, with the Pecos River running through it. The kids loved playing in the river, we also hiked to the top of the canyon which had great views. Kids road bikes through the park and meet several other kids who were staying in park. The other campers were nice and helpful. They clean the restrooms twice a day, and the showers had good hot water. Forget trying to get OTA TV service or cell service, as the park is located in the bottom of a canyon. We would stay here again. Yes, it does not have a ton of amenities, but its a State park and for $14 there is not much one can complain about. - TXDego

The park looks like a big gravel oblong driveway but when you pull in you notice there are hook-ups under the bushes on either side of the drive. The owner came out and helped us get turned around which for a 30ft 5th Wheel was a bit of a tight fit. The park is across the street from the National Forest Ranger Station and just south of the highway junction that is Pecos, NM. The park was very quiet. The town does not have a leash law so all the dogs in town wander over to see what is going on and see if they can get a ear scratch. Fishing in the Pecos is the main attraction and the weather, even in summer, is cool. We would stay again and, while not a premier RV park, it was a great visit for us. - AGBAT

Road from I-25 to park extremely rough. Interior roads in park rough and not well maintained. Park does not give a good first impression. We pulled in at 2 pm and office was closed, although our packet was on the door. Sites are leveled out on hills and difficult to access. Overall park maintenance needs work with lots of peeling paint and rotten wood. Ok for an overnight. Small rocked, fenced area as dog area which our dog would not use. Very low water pressure. - unifan

Although we made confirmed reservations almost a month in advance, and arrived at the campground mid-afternoon, we were not able to get the 50amp full hook-up pull thru that we reserved. We were told that we were switched out because we were only staying one night. In order to get a 50 amp site we had to take a back-in site on a hill that was not level. We had to put blocks under the front wheels to make ground contact after the levelers lifted the coach front to level it. The site was also too short causing our coach to stick out into the road, making it almost impassable. We did get free dinner tickets to make up for it, but I would have preferred our reservation be honored or told that it only secured a site and not a particular one. To add insult to injury, the roads were dirt, narrow, and rutted. The layout of the park was such that it was difficult to discern between a site driveway and a thru road. This is not a park I would return to. - Brenda D

I found the interior roads to be very rough. Site was fairly level. Needed 50 amp extension to reach box. The restrooms were clean at the usage site but there were artificial plants that hadn't been cleaned in a long time as were other areas of the restroom. - DickO
