  • We spent a pleasant Sunday afternoon at this park hidden away on the Pecos River. There was ample space for picnic and nice walking trail along the river. The rest room was clean. It looks like a quie...  more »
  • We have our family reunion there every year. The host, Gilbert, is horrible. He has no customer service whatsoever. He is rude and unprofessional.  more »
  • The campground was nice and clean. Beware that the roads leading to it are very narrow. We had a 26ft travel trailer and we had to be cautious. Also, it is pretty much 30+ minutes from gas.  more »

  • This is a great state park. Out of the way and very senic. We pulled our 24 ft travel trailer and went without a reservation. While the best sites require a reservation it can be done without. We stayed in site 10A and while it had electric hook up the water spigot was too far away to reach with the 75 ft of hose I had. I really needed at least another 50 ft. Sites 7A and 9A are very nice and have electricity and water within reason but you will need a splitter for you water as it is shared between two sites. These two sites must be reserved. We we're there at the end of March and the first of April and felt like we had the park to ourselves. The weather was a little ruff at first as our first day started with rain, changed to sleet and eventually snow but melted as fast as it fell. Coldest morning was 31 degrees but the days warmed into the upper 50's and low 60's. We will be going back but with reservation. Reservation's must be made in advance as they are booked almost all summer. Plan way ahead of you trip to reserve a site.
  • Love our park its beautiful and comfortable to fish camp or just have a vacation.
  • This park is beautiful but poorly maintained. I visited here to camp in July and we had a myriad off issues. We had 2 camping spots in the campground on top of the hill. One of the table area coverings was covered in rodent droppings so we set up our things in the other covered sitting area. After we were set up we discovered that in the roof of the dwelling was a mouse nest. For an area that is so heavily populated it is not well maintained if a huge mouse nest was in the dwelling. We were moving our things out of this area when we discovered 2 Arizona bark scorpions. These scorpions are the most poisonous scorpions in existence, and are fatal to small children, which we were with 2 of. After this discovery we promptly left the area. I hope that this beautiful area is better maintained in the future.
  • One of my favorite places in New Mexico. Nestled in a lush valley near a colonial Spanish village. Cool off in the Pecos River or hike up the mesa for great views and wildlife watching. General store in Villa Nueva a mile or so away has food, ice, firewood etc. Campground can get messy, shelters need a good cleaning, but worth it.
  • Time traveled to another dimension! Words cannot desribe the captivation...the thrall of this well kept secret treasure of super nature! The perfect scenary and incrdeous day hike explore is just the tip of the fascination! The river's wild begged us in...I give dibbs to the workers sacrificial device! Unbelievable!!!
