We happened to camp here in order to easily visit Roswell. Great park! Beautiful rock structures, easy to access, level sites, clean, clean bathrooms, affordable. Dogs do have to watch for painful cockleburrs. Will go back!

Nice campground with a good swimming area. I expected the day use bathrooms to be cleaner due to the off season. The CG showers were a bit grungy but the water was hot. The prices are very reasonable for tent campers. There is no firewood so bring your own to use in the camp grill.

We had high hopes for this state park and planned to stay for a week with our RV but as soon as we pulled in we were overcome by Flies like we never have been before - and that's saying something when I'm an Aussie! It was a pretty 5 mile drive into the campground from the main road and... More

We camped here while we were visiting Roswell, NM. The park is conveniently located and cheaper than RV parks in town. We were able to reserve a site with water, electricity and sewer connection. We were there in September so the weather wasn't conducive to swimming, but the park has a very nice lake with a swimming beach and beach... More

Beautiful park, 5 bottomless lakes, wonderful boardwalk for a walk. Looks like a lovely place To camp out. Large lake loaded with minerals, soaked our feet would have loved to have home for a swim. Park ranger hysterical. Enjoyed talking with him about what to do. Very informative.

After reading of places to visit in New Mexico, this was set as the destination for this year. Not far from town and very accessible to all vehicles, water was nice not to cold and with hot streams in between. Little beach for kids to enjoy the water and pet friendly that your dogs can enjoy the water as well.... More

It is what it is. A bottomless Lake with lots of room for swimming. Good for family and friends as well as couples who want to get away for the day. Just a half day or day trip with water.

The park isn't far from town, easily accessible. The lakes are actually sinkholes which are very interesting and pretty. It doesn't take long to drive the loop. The trails are easily accessible and provide nice views of the "lakes" and landscape.
