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.

Star gazing camp sites

Just a great free place to pull off for the night. Outhouses and trash cans available, but that's it. Countless spots to chose from. Pack it and pack out. We were the only ones there for two nights. It was super quiet and the stars at night were amazing.

Camp amongst the boulders

This place is so unique. Many sites are tucked away in these massive boulders. Clean facilities and nice visitor center. You are the middle of the desert so be prepared!

Coolest Park Ever.

So we actually did not camp here. We cancelled at the last minute and stayed in a hotel due to a sick child. But we visited the park just now for the last 2 hours! It is a giant playground if you love rocks! Our kids weaved in and out of the almost endless rock formations! As for the camping, there is a strip for campers and tents and some have electric hookups. They all have a covered picnic table and fire pit. There are also campsites within the rocks! Those all have a picnic table and fire pit, no electric. There are vault toilets around as well as a very nice visitor center with flushing toilets, showers, and accessible bathrooms/showers. The visitor center bathroom is extremely clean and has water and vending machines. The visitor center has toiletries for sale and we grabbed some t-shirts for the kids! We will be back.


Beautiful spot. Amazing rock formations. Probably one of the coolest campgrounds I have ever stayed at. Each site is named after a constellation you can see in the sky at night from the campground. And during the day you can see for miles and miles, it’s just so beautiful, call me, and serene! Definitely coming back.

Beautiful park.

We parked our cargo van in the tent camping spot since we dont need water or electric hookups. The tent sites are up in the rocks and they are very cool. The bath house is new (located at the visitors center) and has clean showers and toilets. We really enjoyed staying here for the night.

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!!

Modern Stone Age Campground

Little bit expected Fred and Barney to rumble up from around one of these massive natural stone megaliths at any moment! Hey this campground is nice, for being situated in the middle of nowhere desert land! Be aware: it’s hot, it’s cold, it’s sandy, it’s windy, you might not be able to stake your tent where you want (um rocks, big underground rocks). Each non-electric campsite is nestled between the huge rock formations! There’s a group campsite that’s also used to host star-viewing parties (June 21st if memory serves). There is also an RV area with hookups out in the suburbs. The visitor center has some history and information about the area as well as showers and (I assume) potable water!

Trail biking and bouldering enthusiasts will love this picturesque campsite!

Friendly management

Clean quiet out-of-the-way campground

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

Amazing, no wifi

If you need wifi, this is not the place to stay. However, be sure to visit for the day. It is so unusual. The camping spots are really cool! 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.

Animals, Rocks, and Solitude

Nearly prefect camping. At Citt of Rocks you wIll fInd a wonderful opportunity to view the native wildlife of NM. Noteworthy: the stars, the trails, and opportunity for climbing and jumping on rocks. This park is great for kids.

Things to be cautious about: We almost stepped on a camouflage rattlesnake, the bees take over the drinkimg water (if you turn it slowly, they don’t seem to be bothered), and the bathrooms weren’t as good as they could have been.

All and all, it was a great geological experience.

Rock climbing

It is a fun campground to go rock climbing. Hot in the summer. We also went in March way cooler.

Beautiful desert location

About 30-45 minutes out of las cruces nm,beautiful desert setting, rv sites, cabins, camp store, several hot springs, some are clothing optional, some family friendly, very remote no cell service but beautiful area, not far from city of rocks state park

Strikingly beautiful

There are some sites with power but the sites surrounding the huge rocks are rustic, we love this area, so much to see

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.

SUPER Windy in Springtime

We stayed here 2 nights and took advantage of the showers! The price for camping is something like $5 more than your entrance fee so it is worth it. The camping is awesome because each site is smooshed between the rocks so it is a very different experience. If it wasn't so windy, it would be one of my favorite campsites.

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.
