We have added the City of Rocks State Park to our "must go back again" list of places. The rock formations are so intriguing. Many visitors were camping there and that is what we want to do next time.

Other than this would be pretty windy because its on top of a hill, the RV and camps are tucked in between rocks. Even saw some electric RV places! The views are wonderful snd I saw a hot springs before you enter park. We watched the sunset and quails running around! We found out it is a Dark Sky Park for photos after we had found another RV park. There is a meteor shower tonight which would have been spectacular out there. Bring the kids, they can climb on rocks and explore, I know I’m going to next trip!

This was such as wonderful escape from our Covid world. My children 7 and 12 loved exploring and climbing the rocks. The hikes were easily accessible and and doable for younger kids. The campground was clean and set beautifully between the rocks. Facilities were clean.

This is a singularly unique geological wonder in NM, and is a worthy roadtrip destination. Wide open vistas, giant boulders to climb around on; this would make an excellent game of hide-and-go-seek. An adjacent overlook has even broader vistas. Bring sturdy shoes, water, sunrscreen, etc; the usual desert outdoor precautions. Mainly RV camping with full hookups, but some primitive camping available. Tons of picnic tables, each in their own secluded niche, nestled between the rocks. The visitor center is well-maintained with info about the park, cold drinks, bathroooms. Visit nearby Faywood hot springs after, only a mile or two away, or head to either Marie's (Italian) or Irma's (New Mexican) in Deming for lunch/dinner (about 25 minutes to Deming), and you got a full day or two.

We will definitely be back to do some night sky watching. What a fantastic place. A great place to visit with kids for sure. So much information and plenty to see and do.
