  • This state park is off-the-beaten path near the tiny village of Villanueva, New Mexico. It's a quiet opportunity to picnic and fish along the upper Pecos River.  more »

  • Nice overnight camping spot. Beautiful canyon carved by the Pecos River. Very peaceful and restful location. Limited services nearby, so bring everything you might need. The lower campground is more crowded, but is adjacent to the river. The upper campground offers more views and solitude, but can be windier. This is a great shoulder season overnight stop. There is very limited, though beautiful, hiking in the park.
  • Great park but just too noisy. At least 3 loud radios. It more of a New Mexico problem than just Villanueva. Too many NM campers just don't realize their music is awful in their neighbor's ears. I never have this problem in other states.
  • Nice quiet campsite to get away from the hustle and bustle.
  • It’s so beautiful. We love staying here. It’s totally worth the long wait to make reservations.
  • By far one of our family favorites. It's beautifully secluded in a canyon valley with a steady and wide flowing river. Has covered picnic areas, potable water spouts, bathrooms near all sites, a shower area and many trails to hike and fish. A must see for the New Mexico true
