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