Great park

We didn’t get to use any of the amenities as we were just stopping through on our way to Florida from California. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We had no problems fitting our rig that is 70ft overall length in. Will be stopping here again.

Best park in town!!!

This place is actually now a resort. Indoor heated pool and hot tub. High speed internet. Cable. 2 clean laundry rooms. Dog park. Dog walk. New clubhouse. Weekly events. Playground. Top rated Good Sam Park.

State park camping

We love this state park campground. RV and tent camping. Water and electric. Reservation sights are full hookup. No cabins. Always nearly full in the winter; always nearly empty in summer. It’s hot!! Three miles from the Mexican border and excellent margaritas!!

clean and comfortable easy to get to.

found it clean and everyone was friendly.

Beautiful Views

The camp host was fantastic. I got here after hours (not knowing that they lock the gates at 9 pm) and she let me in and gave me a space to crash. I was only there for a few hours and it was easy to get in and out without waking everyone else up.

Great location near Mexico

No wifi here. It is very close to the border of Mexico if you are crossing for medication, dental care, or shopping. Large, beautiful park. Pets allowed

Peaceful and small

It is hard to get an electric site here with a reservation. Boondock for a day and quickly move over to an unreserved electric site once someone leaves. Fun hiking on a volcanic mountain. You can find geodes and thunder eggs. Clean bathrooms. Excellent wifi (verizon and at&t) with booster. No limit on # of pets. Close to Mexico for dental care and shopping.

rocks and more rocks

the facilities are clean. you're allowed to scavenge for rocks here and take them with you. we were allowed to have a fire. the park host was excellent. we didn't see any snakes. I would stay here again while traveling through.

Breathtaking night skies

We've stopped several times at Rockhound, generally for just one night en route to or from someplace else. The bath house is wonderful if you don't have a bathroom in your rig. There are electrical hookups at many of the sites, if you want to run AC, but these are often booked up by reservation people. There's usually room in the non-hook up section. A major attraction for us is the night skies, which are absolutely spectacular. There's also a nice view of the Deming city lights from up on the hill. A nice clean campground.

Very interesting.

I found this park quite informative.Lots of history and sunshine.Clean hot showers well keep grounds.Not to mention you get to walk across the border into Mexico no passport.

Small campground with little to do

Small campground, maybe 20 spots. Open space campground and hot. No trees or shade. Campground is clean with really nice bathrooms that have showers. Not much to do other than look for rocks, and only 1 small hiking trail.

Rock hound campground

This is a very simple campsite. Great place for hiking biking and wild flower observation.

Clean campground, fun rockhounding

Campground is clean with excellent bathroom facilities. Very few campsites. Fun place to rockhound. Nothing else really around the area. Two small hiking trails with a small view. They sell firewood there you can buy. Not sure what you would do if you stayed more than 2 days. Good night sky.
