Love Your RV: Camping at city of Rocks State Park

From the bloggers at Love Your RV.

City of Rocks is a little gem of a state park located about a half hours drive north of Interstate 10 and Deming, New Mexico. Access is very easy on paved highways. Like other New Mexico state parks we’ve stayed in the park was extremely well kept and a bargain.

Electric and water hookup sites were $14 and no hookup sites were a mere $10. The sites with hookups were nice level, wide pull-thrus but fairly close together for a State Park. The no hookup (dry camping) sites were much more private but most were quite sloped. Scouting around I did see some that were larger enough to accommodate bigger rigs, but leveling may be a challenge.

We chose campsite #9 which was a no hookup site but set against several of the large boulders and gave us nice views out our rig windows.  It took a little trial and error to find a patch of ground flat enough to level the rig, but we made do and got her pretty level. The site had a cool little raised area containing a picnic table, fire ring and bench.  Around it was a rock wall making it look part of the landscape. It was a perfect place to have morning coffee or watch the sunset with our happy hour beverages.
