A Great NM Park

I am traveling solo in a 5th wheel camper with no need for hookups. For $10 I had a beautiful campsite with the lake in the background.

Unbelievably beautiful place with wonderful facilities. Heated restrooms and showers. Everything sparkly clean. Kelly, the camp host was super welcoming, friendly and helpful. We scored a completely private spot with perfect weather to enjoy the silence and stars under the crystal clear sky. Thank you, New Mexico!

I really enjoyed a recent visit to Santa Rosa Lake, including the areas managed by the Santa Rosa Lake State Park. The visitor center staff at the Army Corp of Engineers office was very helpful and friendly, with tips on hiking the park and even local restaurants. Then picked up an annual State Park pass from the state office. The... More

I'm giving this place 5 stars, only because there is so little to do in Santa Rosa and this offers many different activities for all ages. The spot has a playground, making it ideal for families on the road who want to let their kids run and burn off some energy after long car rides. They have charcoal grilling stations... More

My husband and I made a short visit to the park to walk a trail or two and do some birding. The park doesn't seem to be set up for hiking or birdwatching, but focuses mostly on camping. The park office was closed and no bird species list or similar information was available. We found one trail by accident, when... More

We tent camped overnight. Campground and bathrooms were clean, good water and flush toilets. Be advised this is a local fishing hole and would not be a destination for most other visitors. However, the tent camping is a deal for only $10.

Our site at the Santa Rosa State Park is large with paved pad. Electric only at the site, but a convenient dump station is just down the road. Views are nice. Pleasant, quiet, and enjoyable. Lots of walking trails.

I had no problem maneuvering my 26' travel trailer into a back-in spot. Water and electricity were available, and the campground was really pretty. A huge storm system nearly filled the reservoir in 70 hours last fall (Sept. 2013) and the waters are still a silty red color from that. The trails are lovely, the stars incredible, and the bathrooms... More

Very pretty desert landscape all around the lake. Good facilities. When we were there on a cool Saturday in early October, there were only two other cars and two cyclists in the whole place.
