  • Went here since it was close. Water was dirty and lake was very small. ON the plus side there were very few people there. 
  • Half have electric at campground few have water. Very quiet. Restrooms need help. Lights burnt out shower curtains. Torn. Push button showers. 
  • Beautiful views, very clean and well maintained. Extremely relaxing and quiet. Enjoyed our stay tremendously. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend. (only thing would have made it better, if horses would have been closer to campsites). Great job Santa Rosa, New Mexico. You know how to welcome your guest. We will be planning a return visit.

  • Beautiful desert camping. Clear skies, wonderful sunrises and sunsets. Clean and well maintained.
  • So beautiful and very clean, plus had plenty to do for the entire family of all ages. Between the blue hole, wibit, camping, and fishing three days just wasn't enough.
  • awesome place a jewel in middle of nothing no camp fires but great swimming
