3 RV Parks near Villanueva, New Mexico
May 2017 - $10.00
We stayed here on our way to Santa Fe. The road up from Rt 40 is very tight for a big rig just before you get to the park. Go slow, gear down, and use the entire road. The park is definitely secluded. It is right on the Pecos river and has some neat hiking. The interior roads are mostly paved. There are electric sites, but all must be reserved. Most are not pull thru. Our site 20B, is reservable, but has no power. However, it was one of the only pull thrus. All sites have a wind shelter. The wind is pretty strong in the canyon and the tent campers were setting up inside the shelters. We prefer non commercial parks. This fit our needs wonderfully. - CharlieS

Previous reviews are right about this CG being a lovely little spot for peace and quiet with the only sound is the Pecos River running though it. The restroom were clean and well taken care of. The roads in the park are paved but the sites are not. This CG is on their reservation system and I would recommend reserving and paying the extra fee because in the off season there is no one around to take care of the on site system and all the electric sites, whether reserved or not say they are reserved, so all that you can camp at are the non electric site, and there is no cell service to call anyone either. We came in from Hwy 40 and "what a ride" for the last few miles, down a narrow switchback cliff and then back up thru the little town with narrow sharp turns. I would recommend you come in from the north to avoid the cliff, but it is still a narrow and windy road. The dump station was easy to get into but make sure you are disconnected because the turnaround at the end in very tight. The upper loop which was closed when we were there but it is on such a steep road going up and down 1 way that I would not want to take our big rig up there, but the sites, once you get there are big and fairly level with a spectacular view of the valley. Make sure you bring all the supplies you need because the closest town is an hour and half on those windy roads and hwy 25 all the way to Santa Fe. - rhianna

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

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

I can't believe I paid $40 for a W/E even with the discount. This place is a mudhole when it rains, which apparently is does a lot. Sites are tight and not level. Many seasonal units, although I can't imagine why. I wonder if the health department ever checks their "food service?" We walked by and decided to pass. Lots of highway noise; could hear it over the white noise on my phone right next to my head. On the positive side, the gentleman checking us in was very nice and helpful. We would never come back. - Dream2RV

Good spot; however, leaving was a challenge. Interior roads in horrible shape due to huge ruts and trees in exit path. Didn't plan on going "off-roading" in my 41.5 ft motorhome.
Spacious lots with a sunny/open exposures. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - Joyce Springer

.We were in site 48. We were only staying one night, but we had to unhook the car so we could maneuver the RV enough to get level. We were here a few years ago. At that time we were in one of the sites in the front. Those sites, sites 1 through 7, are much more level. Our site was mostly dirt with some gravel in it. When it rained, the whole park was muddy. Needless to say, we were not happy and will probably not be back. - mrpeepers
