The photos that show up above for this campground are actually of Santa Rosa LAKE which is about 20 minutes north on 91. The campground/RV park at this address is definitely more of an RV park. It is very close to I-40, there are streetlight-style lights throughout, and not much in the way of primitive camping. But if you're an RV-er you may love the amenities here, I think there is WiFi and a pool! We are tent campers and continued on up to the lake. The lake is operated by the State Park system. As of October 1, 2020 reservations are required for all state park sites, and they are only open to NM residents! We bent the rules as it was 2 am, and the rangers were cool about it in the morning. There are 2 campgrounds at the lake (Rocky Point and Juniper Park) - only Rocky Point was open currently, presumably for COVID reasons.
The primitive campsites are the only good spot for tent camping. There two big campsites are more for Rv’s
Very beautiful drive up to the lake and campsite. While the vegetation and terrain is pretty open, there is still quite a bit of privacy at the individual sites. Bathrooms were clean. Wonderful sunrise over the lake. Very nice playground for the kids.
it was April and still a bit cold but there were only 4 sites occupied here and we had the sites right on the water front. it’s more like a parking lot but some sites have trees. I have 18 foot travel trailer and can’t beat the price for hook ups
This is a hidden gem. We were evacuated from our camping spot in Northern New Mexico due to wildfires and set out for a new spot. Exhausted from driving, we pulled into this campground. It is clean, well maintained and the dog got a kick out of doing a bit of swimming. There is unique topography and enough to explore for a night or two.
We had been driving all day and this campground is one of few campgrounds in the area. So it served us well. We just stayed one night, didn't seem like much to do in the area. 10 miles from town. Power and non-power sites. One loop of the campground was closed when we were there.
There is a nice little shoreline trail that takes you around the lake. Campsites were nice, each site had a table. Some of the stalls in the bathroom were missing toilet paper and both the men's and women's bathrooms were out of soap. According to the maintenance schedule the bathrooms hadn't been checked in two days.
We arrived late in the afternoon and found the park by asking at a local gas station. It is a few miles NE of town although if you come in from the NW the highway signs are a little scarce. The site was comfortable (we had an RV site with electricity) and a good amount of space. The shower was ok but annoyingly short on time span for each "push" on the button. We would stay there again.
