Peaceful with nice views

Rocky Point was one of two campgrounds we saw in Santa Rosa Park. All sites had picnic tables, some sites had electricity and water, and some sides just had water. The bathrooms in Rocky point had flush toilets and showers. The bathrooms were very clean. The camp host was very friendly. This was a very nice campground and not too far from Highway 40.

tight, cramped, poorly designed, needs work

I took the last site on short notice with electricity for four nights over the weekend, the handicap site. I went back and double checked, the NMSP website has not clearly state that only a van or very short class C would fit in the spot. I got my 20 foot trailer in but my truck is sticking out into the road a tiny bit. The sites are very close together and unfortunately, right after I arrived a couple of families set up right next to me complete with screaming kids and yapping dogs. Campers with kids and dogs should have their own camping loops, maybe their own campgrounds. So many people do not appreciate the quiet and solitude of a natural woods. As soon as the kids arrived, it seemed like they were told to scream as loud as they could. Disgusting. So one star for this campground and the poor layout

Drugs and Vagrants

This place needs to be patrolled by law enforcement. Vagrant drug users acting crazy in the middle of the night.

Okay Campground

Campgrounds were fairly clean here. Keep in mind that if you are tent camping A LOT of the spots are extremely rocky and just full of gravel! Campground has clean showers and bathrooms as well. Sites are fairly close to the lake too. The campground is also only about 12 minutes away from the town of Santa Rosa if you’re in need of supplies!

Clean, quiet, and easy access

We spent a few days at this campground and I was especially impressed with how clean the bathrooms and showers were. There were trails that we enjoyed off the loop we were on. It was super quiet and yet very close to town in case we needed anything. My kids enjoyed the playground!

Nice quiet campground

I stayed in Rocky Point , A loop. Nice campground in desert setting overlooking the lake. A lot of pull thru sites as well as back ins. Electric was all thru the loop, however water hook ups were not. A pump was located a little ways down the loop, however. Some sights had covered picnic tables, others not. If shade is important check the details before booking and it will tell if you have water and the pic will show the picnic table. Nice trails. Enjoyed the scenic lake loop. Juniper campground was walk-in only and looked to be much more secluded but without amenities. There was also a primitive camping area.

Book on Reserve America for New Mexico “Santa Rosa Lake” very pretty and peaceful. Not all streets were labeled but the directions worked to get us there just fine. Park for kids, gorgeous sunsets and the stars show off at night. Clean bathrooms. Had hookups.

Wonderful State Park!

Wonderful State Park to stay for a few days. Not a whole lot to do but be with nature and the stars! There is a "Shoreline Trail" if ya want a short hike to do. I'll post activity in "AllTrails" as "AllTrails" has one much shorter that what the park has. 

We stayed in the Rocky Point Campground Loop B, reservations only, and it was a nice place to stay. Sites are a bit uneven but hey it's a state park!!  We were in site B4 which was plenty big for our 40' rig providing we had to "back in" to a "pull in" site!! There is a big cedar tree in the way and made would make the turn to sharp and scratch the rig... other than that it was a wonderful site!

The site has no electric or water but there is water filling station in Loop A across from the Bathroom/Showers building. Just a short hose will do the trick. There is also water spigots in the middle of each loop but takes to much hose from where we are staying!

Gorgeous night sky

We stopped here for one night in late October on a cross country road trip in our new-to-us-Roadtrek camper van. Campground was easy to reserve online and easy to find despite it being very dark when we arrived. It was windy as heck but my husband and I marveled at the stars before tucking in for the night. Bathhouse was open and clean but I could NOT get the shower to get warm despite multiple times pushing the button in all of the available stalls. Ah well. Would definitely stop in again for a few more nights if we’re ever in the area again!

Clean and well maintained

I was really impressed with the sites. The tables had a nice cover over them and each one had a electric hook up with a regular 110 outlet. We stayed in a tent, but the sides were clearly for RVs. Didn’t matter to us. There were trails all around that we took our mountain bikes on. Not biking trails, but we were able to navigate them with some skills and careful judgement.

Beautiful & roomy

Santa Rosa state park in NM perched above a water-starved reservoir on the Pecos river. There’s minimal cell or WiFi. It’s a lovely spot. Reservations must be made through ReserveAmerica. Some sites have power but no water but there’s a water fill station in the CG.

Great sunsets!

It has a few loops so there is plenty space. Is near Santa Rosa viewpoint of the lake and near trails. You have to have a reservation (se pics). At the moment because of wildfires fire is not allowed.
