Nicely kept resort. Has swimming pool, laundry and walking area (all not mentioned above). The downside is the "Wi-Fi" more like dial-up, the front desk people don't seem to realize that there is something wrong with this service, and they blame it on your computer. We stayed here a year ago and the service was fine, even perfect, now it is ridiculous, once you connect, you get bumped off or disconnected every few minutes. Pages take minutes to load when you can get a signal. They need to fix this problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.

If you age qualify, this is a pleasant enough park for an overnight in Deming. However, it is not quiet. Facilities seem very adequate and, from what we saw, clean and in good repair. Since the park is situated close to the freeway, we asked for a spot as far away from the traffic noise as possible. We were accommodated happily and given a site on the far south edge of the park. Little did we know that the noise of highway traffic would be easily overpowered by the relentless, whistling trains throughout the night! Access was easy for our big rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are here for one night on the way home from Arizona. Very easy to get to. Some road/train noise but not bad at all. We didn't have a reservation and there were plenty of available spaces although there were a fair number of people here. We were put near the shower/laundry/pool building and internet is very good. A second access code costs $2 more. We will stay here if/when Deming is a stopping point again We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is an open field covered in gravel. The person at the desk warned me to take in my water hose before going to bed as there were freeze warnings out. The electric voltage is good, the water pressure was adequate, and the sites are very large. It is a great overnight campground with easy on easy off the freeway. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is right off I-10. The road noise is not bad; however, there is a rail track along the freeway and there is some train noise. The noise did not bother us. The sites are long enough to stay hooked-up and have OK room between with a table at the site. The park is a cash or check only. We will stay again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice RV park. The only draw backs are the trains running all night: hard to sleep. Not a very good dog run. Also, you can't walk your dogs in the park. Ok for a one night stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park looks inviting from the road but, the trains run all hours of the day and night with horns blasting at every crossing making it tuff to get any sleep. Nice looking indoor pool that we didn't use. Clean, level gravel sites. $18.00 including tax. Tired from driving it looked too good to be true. If you are not hearing impaired be warned to keep going. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Had a good overnight stay. Can see a lot of work and care has gone into this place. Huge activity building and super clean laundry and bathrooms. Our only complaint - we took a spot close to the main building, specifically so we could use the internet, but the Tengo system was all but useless. It kept dropping off and when it did work was slower than dial up. Seems like if you advertise internet, it should work ! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The entire RV park is gravel - roads, sites, beds, parking, etc. This was my first trip to New Mexico and I've never seen this, but it actually works well for the environment. It makes negotiating a large RV with tow vehicle very easy, and kept everything very clean. We had planned on just an overnight here, but stayed for 3 nights. We liked this park and got used to the frequent train noises - not too bad. The rest rooms were immaculate and well maintained. Each shower stall has a bench, multiple hooks and towel bar - what every shower should have! Laundry facilities were in great shape. Really enjoyed all the articles on the walls about local history, sites to see, and events in the area. There is an indoor, heated pool which was again, in great shape and well maintained. Areas to walk in the back are large and still fenced. I really appreciated the great job done by cleaning and maintenance people! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The was an overnight stay for us. The park was all gravel but easy to get into with OK space between sites. There was a picnic table at the site. The people are nice and helpful. Close to the freeway for easy on and off. The road noise was not a problem but the train noise was more than the highway noise. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park worked fine for me as a one-night stopover. Large, level, gravel sites. Park was largely empty, so was very quiet. Wi-Fi worked fine. For a park that caters to over-55 campers, I was amused to find so many reminder signs everywhere, as if the park was actually catering to small children. Would stop here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really nice, spacious park. Fairly large sites with huge roads. The facilities are also huge. Lots of toilets, showers, big laundry, activity area etc. Credit cards not accepted and no cable TV. Very nice heated indoor pool. The one downside is Tengo Wi-Fi which is virtually useless. Some train and highway noise but acceptable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Past reviews were correct, this is a nice level place to stay. But they did not mention how close I-10 and the railroad were. Rather strange way to enter off the highway. The pet area is off to the side in some cactus. We only stayed one night and the next morning it was cold and windy so we hurried to unhook and go. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Had decided heading west that we would skip a park that had gotten so out-of-hand in pricing and found this one in Deming. Great level sites with space between. The staff spaced RV's as they came in. The price reflects the weekly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Found all the other comments were accurate, however there were two things missed. To the positive, they have an absolutely gorgeous indoor heated swimming pool. To the negative, no one seemed to mention the nearby train tracks that had trains running all night, as well as it's close proximity to I-10. Lastly, found the staff very friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice enough place overnight. They have an indoor pool which we appreciated. There is some nice landscaping, but the area around the office has gotten pretty junky. The noise from the trains was very noticeable. They don't have a website and the office folks weren't the friendliest around. Still, it's convenient and we'd probably stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here every time we come through Deming. All pull through sites are very easy to get into. We had to stay a couple extra days to thaw out because of the big freeze, and there was no problem staying the extra days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great overnight park along I-10. We enjoyed the easy access from I-10, the friendly staff who checked us in and the clean park and sites. Easy to navigate around the park with the motorhome and the sites were level. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with the other reviews here. This place is very nice and well kept. The staff was very friendly. I would have given this place a 10 if it wasn't all gravel, but we leveled fine. The indoor pool was great and they had lots of washers and dryers. The place was immaculate. We used their WiFi which was very fast, but we also tried our Verizon broadband card and had great reception. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have spent many overnights here on our way to and from Yuma, Arizona. This is an outstanding park. Can't believe they have such a small rate. It just went up from $25 which it was for years. It is an adult park and every aspect of it is well maintained. Has a nice big place to exercise a dog. Spaces are large, level and easy to access. Owners are some of the friendliest and helpful we have run into. I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park has an indoor pool. Although the park was gravel covered, all sites were level. The grounds were well groomed with desert plants. The water, sewer and electric outlets were well placed. The shower/toilet areas were well maintained and beautiful. We have recommended this park to our friends traveling through New Mexico. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Did an overnight here. The management was friendly and knowledgeable, and the park was immaculate. Showers, pool, laundry, all located inside one building and were in good order plus very clean. We have stayed there before and will do so again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Everyone at the front was very pleasant and helpful. WiFi had excellent speed, and place was clean. They seem to be trying real hard. Yes my dogs did pick up a couple of thorns, but what is new in southern New Mexico. We plan on using the place again in our travels. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beware: don't stay at this facility for any reason. Better to stay at Wal-Mart! The owners and their children are not good people. This is more like a commune than a resort. Bathrooms and showers were filthy. This place is so pathetic it turned my stomach. We stayed for 4 hours and left. Would not recommend this park to anyone, not even my worst enemy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 2 / 10 ]
We stopped to see if we would like to stay here. Park was half full at best in February. Spaces were a decent size and park is nicely maintained. Has two ex-cop cars just before you go into the park. The lady at the desk was very nice. The man was gruff and not happy that we have Harleys in our Toy-hauler. Since phone was available we might have been able to get DSL, but with no cable TV we decided not to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large, level pull-thrus for our motor home and tow vehicle - no problem. We made a reservation but it did not appear necessary. Good stop for an overnighter if you can sleep through the trains. Dogs are allowed but the designated dog walk is full of stickers. Dogs appear to be an after-thought at many RV parks, in our opinion. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just off I-10 at Exit 81, it was a very nice camping facility with some superior amenities, such as an indoor pool and spa. The graveled campsites were spacious and well-maintained. No major discounts were offered, but their daily rate was considered reasonable. A minor accident at our campsite resulting in a broken water pipe raised the ire of the camp host. We were presented with a $25 repair bill, ordered to pay up and leave the camp. Campers should be cautious when dealing with the camp host and his staff under other than ordinary circumstances. In our case, they were rude, abrasive, and inhospitable in response to what amounted to an unfortunate accident. As a result of our experience at 81 Palms, we do not intend to return. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Park is an over 55 location. Very clean. Large gravel pull-thru sites. Very nice pool, spa, & game room. Laundry is spotless & has 10 washers & 6 dryers. Park is located next to I-10. A rr track runs above the interstate. The park has a wall on the north side & we found it to dampen the noise--it was quiet to sleep. The host was friendly & helpful. We will stop again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was clean, level sites, full hookup, and staff was friendly but there was no shade trees. The residents were very nice and made you feel welcome. I didn't like the set up very well, but the homey feel more than made up for it. Yes I'll return! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older park. Rough around the edges. Good value for over night. Clean laundry with low cost. The heated bathroom a big plus. Staff friendly and extremely helpful. So even if the park's a little funky, we'll stop here again. Cheap @ 25/night! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just got back from this park. The lady at the front desk was very nice and checked us in quickly. I would hardly say it has trees, the trees that it did have were small and given to long term people. It was nothing more than a gravel parking lot with hook ups. The cable was great but the booklet they gave us had so many mistakes as far as channels go, you had to hunt for the channel you wanted. Pets, the so called open area for pets was so full of goathead stickers and weeds and maybe some grass, nobody wanted to take their animals there. Sites were very level. It appeared that there were 3 campgrounds together and they decided to just put a fence between them and make 3 separate campgrounds. Would I stay here again, NO, at least not in the summer. Winter, maybe fine but nothing could absorb the heat in the summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a quick overnight stop - in at 10 pm and out at 7 am. I had made a reservation, but the night registration was easy to follow as well. WI-FI worked great. Site was very level. It had an "overnight" area, which was nice, as I didn't feel like we were bothering the normal guests. I probably wouldn't want to stay here for more than just an overnight stop, but for our purpose, it was great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great safe, clean and friendly place for overnight. Couple at office very friendly. Place very clean. I was quoted $28, but when I got there they asked if I was a Auto Club triple A member,( yes ) then reduced it to $26. Has small area at office for watching TV and you can sit on the couch, a place to relax. I will use this RV park again. There are a lot of RV parks next to this one, similar on each side in Deming. I will pick this one next time I stop in Deming.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Perfect for an overnight. We called ahead knowing that we would be arriving late and the owner was very friendly. There appeared to be some long term residents, but the park was clean and level. All gravel, hookups easy to access, and very easy to get in and out of. Area appeared safe. We would overnight here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground was as described by other reviewers, gravel with no real shade. Space between sites was adequate. Wi-Fi worked well. Rate was with AAA discount. OK for a one night stay. All other RV parks in the area appear to be the same (e.g. gravel with no shade). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just stopped for the night. Chose it because they have a hot tub, unfortunately, after arriving several others in the area also have hot tubs. All the RV parks in the area are gravel lots, little landscaping, but at least this one has decent cable. Might use it again if in the area, or might try one of the other's depending on our needs. Wal-mart is right down the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pulled in just for the night, and the office staff was very friendly and helpful. We were looking for some ice, and they went and got us some from their fridge. So nice of them. The place was clean and quiet, and we would stay again. The price was fantastic. The internet was one of the best we had across 4 states, much appreciated. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is great for all our needs. Motorhome died on way to site after check in they used a small tractor to tow us to a site so we could hook up. Noise other posters have mentioned is there but barely noticed it. Very friendly people. Wi-Fi worked great. No trees but that not important to us. Rate was using Good Sam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is adequate at best. It is a gravel lot with hookups, minimal landscaping, road noise and train noise. Hookups work well and water pressure is fine. There is free cable which we did not use because we have satellite. Don't know what the story is with Wi-Fi since we use our air card. Here for a group camp out but would not stay here again. It would be OK for an overnight stop, however since it has the basics. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is average at best: basically a gravel lot with hookups. The website indicated that the pool was being remodeled but, when looking at it, they've filled it with old tires. Doesn't look like it's being worked on. The hot tub was supposed to be available from 3pm - 6pm. We went to use it at 5pm (since we had just arrived). The man in the office said, "Well, it will take about an hour to warm up: you should have told me when you checked in that you wanted to use it." Like it was our fault. We can not recommend this one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is marginal at the best. Other parks in the area are much better so research before committing to a park in Deming. Some long term, but they kept to themselves, and contrary to other reviews, the interstate and railroad noises were very noticable here. It is basically a gravel wide spot in the road with lots of weeds, dog droppings, and in general in need of some major clean-up. Office staff was very friendly, and recommended a nice steak house that we went to, but it was in the middle of nowhere about 15 miles from town and it looked like a converted barn or warehouse with no indication that it was even in business as a place to eat. We would not stay here again. The rate was for Good Sam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just a flat RV Park with no noise even though it is a very short distance from I-10. Pool closed because too expensive to maintain. Plan to fill it in. All amenities as advertised. Wi-Fi good and cable TV had many channels to chose from. Good for a one night stay. Would go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice place to spend some quiet time, the staff was very nice and accommodating. The internet worked fine. The staff was well versed on the local weather. We were warned to get into our site and hooked up quickly as it was going to rain. We were allowed to hook up and the rains did come. By morning, the skies were blue, there were some puddles but not in our space. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our 50 amp power was strong and solid, WI-FI worked fine, and our site on gravel was as level as we needed. It is not a destination park, but it was fine for a one night stop over. Plenty of room for big rigs to get into and out of the spaces and park entrance. Only a short distance off of I-10 but no noise was noticed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large dirt parking lot and nothing more. POOL CLOSED SINCE JAN 10. Did not advise at registration, only 106 degrees when we checked in. Would not stay here again except as last resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground only one night. It would not be my pick for a long stay, but it is sufficient for one night. The only major problem I encountered was that their free Wi-Fi does not work well with windows user’s computers. I entered the correct security key, but after connecting to their network I was never able to get an internet connection. I don’t think they need to advertise Wi-Fi if they can’t properly support it. One good thing is that there was a Wal-Mart and K-mart store very close to the campgrounds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is adequate for an overnight spot. It is on a stretch of road with many RV parks, so take your choice. The showers are OK, but despite claims of Wi-Fi, we couldn't get on line and we were parked close to office. The manager was of no help. He told us "he was an Apple guy". I think next time I'd try a different place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very old but, it is just fine for overnight. The host was friendly and helpful. On the plus side is the close-by shopping (Wal-Mart and many others). Also, it is easy on and off I-10. We have stayed here before and will overnight again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed overnight because there is only one row that is big enough with cable & 50 amp. The main part of the park is much older, and for our truck and 40' 5th wheel the only space we could have gotten into easily was taken (by another 40' 5th wheel). The other spaces in the main part of the park are tight and narrow. Staff was very nice. Deming is a flat spot in New Mexico with wind and therefore dust. We ride motorcycles and game so really want DSL or HSI where we camp. This park would be ok if your rig is under 33' and 30 amp. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed in this campground for one month (January). It has an enclosed and covered pool but the water temperature was less than 75F. All safety equipment (hook, rings etc.) are fastened to the wall too high for a typical rescuer to reach. The spa is locked in a separate building and only available on request between 3 and 5:30 PM. There were no scheduled activities during our stay that we are aware of. The Internet is available through a dial up computer in the office. I have carried an IBM compatable laptop for 2 years so feel familiar with Internet access but found their Mac, with an ancient (sticky) keyboard, hard to operate. Took me 1/2 hour to do what I can do in 5 mins on my own. When I pulled out the keyboard slide to lower the keyboard to typing height, next day it was screwed down so I couldn't move it. When filling our 7 gallon propane tank we were charged for 7 1/2 gallons (impossible) $5.50 more for the tanks than by filling it ourselves. Dogs are permitted with a small area for their business. No space outside the park immediately available for walking other than the sidewalk. There are 4 RV parks side by side with chain link fence separation. One park next door had WiFi but generally it is not readily available in Deming except in hotels. One coffee shop said they had WiFi. Tried there 3 times but not wotking either time. Small children called the park home. The owners had grandchildren there too. All gravel pads and roads. Laundry was cheap. $1 per wash and 2 loads fit in the large dryer for $.50 We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Was not impressed. Its a parking lot right off the main drag. The town is dirty and there is absolutely NO place to buy food of any higher quality than dog food. I would not recommend any campground in this entire town. You will thank me if you heed this advice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is quiet, with gravel sites & roads, some mature trees. Restrooms, showers, & laundry are older but clean, staff was friendly. Indoor pool & hot tub; small play ground & dog walk area. Modem available, but didn't use it. Pull-thru sites at the front of the park are narrow, but level & okay for overnight. Some rutted areas in the larger 50 amp sites, which might be a problem if raining. Decent overnight park, but unsightly tent area leaves a bad impression. Obvious long term set-up's with assorted make-shift additions & wooden structures, a school bus, and even a cardboard enclosed horse trailer equipped with a satellite dish. There are other RV parks in Deming, we will try another next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is OK if you're not going to be there most of the day. Some shaded sites, most are out in the open. Gravel sites, everything worked OK. Would stay there again if in the Deming area. The price was very reasonable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A really nice RV park, with good people running it. As mentioned above, not a scenic
park, but landscaping is decent and the facilities are very good. The pool and hot tub are indoors and very clean. While the park is family-friendly, there is no playground. Security is tight there, but well-intentioned. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Dust bowl, would recommend only for overnighters. There are some large pull thrus in the back with a large area for dogs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Clean Park. Friendly, helpful office staff. We camped here in a camper.
The sign says Starlight but it is now called Desert Vista RV Resort and is under new management. The motel and cafe are closed but the new restrooms and game room are nice. All sites are long pull through with full H/U including 50 amp. It's far enough from I-10 so there is no road noise. Mainly just a big open lot and good for overnight stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Apartments in bad shape. Campers have to use very dirty bathrooms with a lot of bugs. Owner not friendly. Don't want Spanish people living there. Would not recommend. Closed pool because it is in very bad shape. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 3 nights. We were in the back in site #3. Mega big rig pull thru sites, 40 by 80 ft. Lots of room to get in and out of the sites and around the campground. 5 channels on the antenna for TV. Can wash your RV at the site. Nice pool table. Excellent cell phone reception with Verizon. Complaints. Pea gravel. Train horn noise. Lots of yappy dogs. Roosters crowing at 6 AM to most of the day. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here Christmas Eve and they were having a finger food potluck for everyone in
the park. We were welcomed with open arms and enjoyed visiting with snow birds from all over. This park also has apartments for snowbirds and is a small motel plus a cafe. The food, service and price were fine. We stayed out front and the sites are very long, level, gravel and wide. Plenty of room for big rigs to get around and for slides. Park is a few miles outside of Deming on the Hatch highway and little or no road noise in the front, probably non at the rear. Also no train noise.
Stopped here on our way back thru 10 days later and still quiet and friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Escapee rate. Long pull thru with decent hookups and wide enough for truck to park side of rig. Permanents and long term in back ins along the fence. Not a real destination park but good over night or several days checking out the area. Good rates for people looking for winter spot or needing dental work in Puerto Palomas. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Escapees discount. Basically a very dusty, windy, gravel parking lot. A few long term residents along the back row. Friendly staff, our first stay at an Escapees Park. This is not normally the type of park we like to stay at but it worked for a 5 night stopvoer and time to catch up on work. Had issues with response time from the Verizon JetPack and huge issues getting our Dish Tailgator to connect at this location. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Entire park and sites are gravel. Not the friendliest place. Right next to I-10 with lots of highway noise. Several oil field workers and long term trailers. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Your basic place to stay when passing through on I-10. Road noise not too bad. Gravel parking lot with hookups, but the site was level and access was easy for our 43 foot rig. We didn't have to unhook the toad. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate is the Escapees rate, including tax. We stopped here for an overnight on our way from Arizona to Virginia. The staff was very friendly, and this park easy to reach off of the interstate. The sites are easy to get into and very level. A great overnight park. We will return if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly park. Not many amenities but easy pull-throughs and easy in and out. Sites were very level. Staff was very helpful. Delicious breakfast. They now have electric charges built into the nightly fee. We paid $20.25 with tax and the Escapees membership discount. Stayed 2 nights with cold icy rain and wind. There was a little highway noise but not a problem. Mostly enjoyed the very friendly people. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy in and out for overnight. Only a few long pull throughs; others you would have to unhook, but since this is the off season with many openings, they said don't worry about it. Would prefer straight rate for one night instead of reading meter the next morning before we leave. Holiday Inn Restaurant next door closing in August 2013, but till then a convenience to get a quick bite to eat if you don't want to cook after a long day's drive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Close to freeway, some noise. Not far to shopping and town. Staff is friendly. Roads and sites are gravel. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. Membership park (Escapees) but all are welcome. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy on off freeway. Easy parking, friendly staff, shopping close by with car. Basically a gravel lot with hookups. Good for a night passing through. Probably the most noise we have experienced in a park so far between the freeway and the railroad, but certainly doable. But if passing through we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price rate is Escapees membership price. A very friendly Escapees park with wide parking spaces. Their laundry is very clean and works very well. The only drawback is the highway noise from the interstate and trains. We will always stay here when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We are Escapees member so when we pass through New Mexico, we plan our trip to include a stop at Dream Catcher RV Park in Deming, NM. The park is clean and level with good clean power. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were looking for an over night and this one was right off the interstate 1 block: easy access. The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and informative of the area, including probably one of the safest border crossings 30 miles south. This is a big gravel lot but it worked for an overnighter. An Escapees park but you don't have to have the membership. No WiFi except in the building. We did drive around and saw the other RV parks on Pine Street and we made the right choice! We were in a 40' rig and would stop again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For Escapees members this was a very nice park. This was only an overnight stop. Access was easy into the park off of Interstate 10. The staff were very friendly. The sites were large and level. The interstate and railroad were close, but not annoying or loud. The clubhouse and library were both large. Deming had many shopping areas and restaurants. If you are there during a Saturday morning, enjoy the breakfast at the clubhouse. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Convenient and clean park with gravel roads and pad, and a few trees. We stopped here for overnight since it was close to the interstate. No Wi-Fi but Verizon Mi-Fi worked good. We would use this park again for an overnight stop when traveling through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We're not an Escapee member but they welcomed us as we were passing through Deming. All gravel. Some trees. Large, wide sites. Good power/full hook ups. Easy access from I-10. Fair price. AT&T cell strong, Verizon air card good. No problem for satellite TV. Wi-Fi at park as stated by others in pay for use: we didn't. Day we were here, there was an evening meal in clubhouse. Only 6 bucks for a great meal. Certainly would visit again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Generally good park. It was so hot (107F) and the shore power was perfect to run our AC. Easy access, but park entrance is easy to overlook. Quiet locally, but light sleepers will have a problem with the very near railroad. Deming moves a lot of heavy rail freight and all night long you will hear, and sometimes even feel, the rumble of freight trains. I didn't see any shade; but hey, it's New Mexico. My wife used the showers; came back happy & clean, so I guess they are OK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very friendly park. My parents live here full time so we were visiting with them, but met so many nice people! You have to pay for your own internet and I had problems staying connected with Tengonet. I wrote Tengonet and heard back saying they needed some more information (which I gave them) and have heard nothing back yet. Dog run is very nice. My dogs could not "escape" but some people don't bother to pick up after their dogs (even after reading the signs and seeing a waste scooper there), which we found disgusting. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a membership park - Escapees. Gravel sites, small trees located throughout park. Utilities in good location; worked well. Rate is actually $12.50 per day plus electric. Friendly staff. Nice park. We always stay here when visiting family. Close to St. Clair Winery. High desert area, so there is dust and cactus; not much green. Will definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good spot for one or two nights. Shopping in town. This park is located in a wind prone area, close to hwy 10 but we had no trouble with road noise. Bathrooms were not private. Didn't use the laundry facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Escapee membership; however, it does not include electrical usage and taxes. Park is a large graveled expanse with hookups and is suited well for an overnight stop. Wi-Fi is included in the rate; however, it seemed extremely slow. So I opted to use my Verizon service which worked very well. There is a nice dog run near the office offering Fido shade, grass, and cleanup implements. Access was easy from the highway and check in was a breeze with excellent hosts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We planned on staying one night only but stayed for 13 nights. We were made very welcome by everyone and enjoyed the Thursday night dinners, Saturdays morning breakfasts, craft sessions and ice cream social on Sundays. We have two young kids and they were made to feel welcome, too. Laundry was huge, sites were good, and the park was very quiet (apart from the train at night but we got used to it). Lots to see in Deming including the State parks and the Gila Cliff Dwellings are worth the drive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked this park. Easy access from freeway. Easy pull through. Good value for the price, even though we're not Escapee members. This was a perfect overnight stop. Nice level gravel sites and good hookups. No complaints. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price is $12.50/night for Escapee's members. Electric additional. Great for O/N. Always some type of activity on-gong. Spaghetti supper last night. All you could eat for $6. Cannot beat that price. Spacious spaces accommodate any size RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Needed an overnight stop on our way from Texas to Arizona. Whole park is gravel with mostly pull through sites and is just off of I-10. No traffic noise, and sites are roomy with hookups conveniently located. Close to food and fuel. Host couple met us when we arrived after hours to help us register which was very nice. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Dream Catcher ( an Escapee park ) was not where the GPS said it was located. If using your GPS plug in Holiday Inn or Motel 6 or find Exit 85 off of I-10. Dream Catcher is directly beside the Holiday Inn. As for the park, they meter the electricity at 11.6 per kWh or a flat $3.00 per night if you come in before 3PM or $2.00 after 3PM. The park hosts were quite helpful. and the sites are in the open ( no trees to block our rooftop satellite dish ) with hard gravel so we didn’t need to put our leveling plates down. There are restaurants aplenty in Deming and the Holiday Inn next to the park does have a restaurant which we opted not to use. Our price reflects the Escapee cost plus tax and $3.00 electric. Their wi-fi is Tengonet – something that we prefer not to use for both it’s price and poor connectivity. They do have good bath facilities and 4 washers and 6 dryers at 1.00 per cycle in the laundry. Highway & train noise was non existent. If in the area, we would use this as strictly a one night stopover. One night people get pull-through sites if they are not all taken. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy on/off to I-10. Pull thru site accommodated RV + trailered vehicle (approx 53' total) quite nicely with room to park vehicle at side of RV. Sites are level & spacious with shade trees. Rained a lot while we were there but we did not encounter any large, long-lasting puddles. Restrooms/showers large and absolutely spotless. Big, well-kept dog run with frisbees, balls, water dishes. Park is well maintained, has a good size library, craft and other guest activities in season, lots of info on local things to do, supplies an air compressor which was a nice surprise. No pool on-site but guests have use of Holiday Inn pool next door. Some reviews have mentioned traffic and train noise but that was so minor it's only noticeable for about 90 seconds. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable about area and just plain glad to have you as a guest. Stayed 2 nights and will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this Escapee RV Park excellent for an safe overnight stay. The sites are primarily just gravel and the access roads are gravel. The first two rows, pull-through sites and near the clubhouse, have shade trees. Our site, almost level, had a couple of trees, which was a good thing on a hot day. The backside of the RV Park is surrounded by open land and offers a good view of the Florida Mountains. The clubhouse has a good size library. The staff provides great service as expected for an Escapee park. The traffic noise from I-10 can be heard and it did not bother us. Passing trains do not have any nearby crossings so they did not bother us. The only negative is the outside music being played by the Holiday Inn, which is adjacent to the RV Park. I suppose it's played to keep unwanted roamers away and it can be heard at times in the RV Park. We will stay again when needing a place in the Deming area for one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After staying at a couple very unfriendly parks before arriving here, we were very pleased to be received with a smile and an Escapees hug! Sites are level and it is easy in/easy out and when driving a 45' motorhome towing a SUV. These are important facts. The rate is an Escapees rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only stayed one night in this campground; but felt very welcome there. The staff was excellent, and even gave DW a golf cart ride to take out the trash! Will stay here, again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park has trees, but do not provide much shade. The fenced pet area is very nice. Park needs some TLC and maintenance done. Escapees changes managers often and everyone has their own agenda. So consistency of maintenance is not possible. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Fine overnight stop- we stayed 2 when the usual Spring winds made it too dangerous to travel. Not much to see an do in dusty Deming. This SKP park always has clean bathrooms and comfy lounge. Base rate $12.50 plus E. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The usual friendly greeting upon checkin with an SKP hug. Just level gravel parking with large pull throughs at a reasonable price. A nice touch is the air compressor at the exit, which will quickly air up large tires if needed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Streets and sites are level gravel; high quality river rock gravel. Water pressure: 65#. Highway and railroad noise is unobtrusive. Good Verizon signal. Good over the air TV; 5 stations. Park is environmentally handicapped; aluminum can recycling only. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As an overnight, it was sufficient. It's an "Escapees" facility, with corresponding reduction in price. I believe my rate of $21 was $6 higher than the members rate. Again, as an overnight it was OK. The sites are spacious, level, and when its windy - dusty. When passing through again, I may look at other sites in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Gravel parking lot convenient to I-10 very friendly staff and clean office building. Modem hook up available in office. Rate is Escapee rate including our hydro cost of 2 dollars a day. When the wind blows across the parking lot look out! The dust is just crazy. Would park here again if in the area. Was convenient to check out Silver City and the Santa Rita Copper mine. Traveled the Mountain Spirit Scenic route but did not go to the Gila cliff dwellings as the temperatures were so cold and the wind very strong. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park! Great breakfast served on Saturdays for 3.50. Friendly staff, totally gravel park, so dusty in windy weather. Very easy to maneuver big rigs around in the park and to get situated. Nice clubhouse, activities are planned for the residents if you choose to participate. We would definitely stay here again. Deming is a small town with a great restaurant out in the middle of nowhere, Adobe Deli and Grill. Packed on a Saturday night, reservations needed. Beautiful scenery there at the park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As members of Escapee's, we love the Escapee's parks. They are always friendly and fairly well kept. Management very friendly and helpful. Rates are great for an overnight or couple of days stay. We paid $12/nightly plus electric. Warm here now so we did not use much electric. Someone commented that pull-throughs were not very long. We disagree and think the pull-throughs could accommodate any size rig. Cannot beat the price for a night or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park works well for Escapee's as an overnight stop on I-10. Easy access of the highway. Friendly folks and a very nice fenced dog run. Everything was clean. It is really a large gravel lot with hookups so its not someplace we'd spend extended time. The price is the base $12 included $4.52 metered electric cost (we ran our electric heaters overnight) plus tax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is daily rate for FHU 50 amp pull thru site, not including tax or electric. Our electric cost was a little over $4 per day which included running an electric heater on the low setting at night. Big open gravel area with a few small trees. Sites are not well marked, but are spacious enough that it is no problem. With winds there will be dust. Inexpensive laundry with standard size washers and dryers. Near I-10 and the railroad, so expect some noise. Great place to overnight or spend a few days to rest up. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First time staying in an Escapees park. The park is a gravel parking lot with hookups. This worked for us for an overnight stop because the park was pretty empty. However, a big rig with trailer would not really fit in their pull-through spots due to length. They have dry camping along the exit road which would accommodate any length rig. Verizon voice and data worked fine. AT&T was Edge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pet friendly / people friendly park. Delightful dog run - Folks stopping by. There are small trees in this well taken care of gravel park. Escapees are 12$ plus 10.5 per KWH. Very nice for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the friendliest park we have stayed at. We got invited to a bluegrass jam and we sang and played with the group for about 3 hours. The park itself is a typical desert RV park. It was clean, the roads were gravel and wide, and the sites were roomy and easy to park in. We would definitely return to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice, well run park, but like most of them in Deming, the I-10 traffic and all day and night railroad noise detract from the ambiance. My rate is the Escapees Club member rate (plus electric at approximately 10 1/2 cents per kilowatt hour). We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice place to overnight. Our spot was level and pleasant with minimal landscaping, but what do you expect in the Chihuahua desert? The park had one of the largest swap libraries we’ve seen in all our travels. The clubhouse was excellent, with lots of activities, and the bathrooms and showers were meticulously clean. The staff members here were very nice, but some of the long-term folks sure were picky. One resident scolded my daughter when she started doing a puzzle on a table in the clubhouse (which was mostly unoccupied at the time), because she wasn’t using the correct “puzzle table.” Of course, none of the tables were labeled, and the “puzzle table” turned out to be full. We paid the SKP rate of $12.50/night. Electricity is separate, so I added our electrical costs to the overall price per night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Your basic parking lot but a very well run one. Rest rooms spotless, helpful management, spacious and clean and very well located for overnight or short term stay. Rate cited is Escape member rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with friendly staff. Nice laundry, library, pool table, and Saturday morning breakfasts, along with an occasional weeknight dinner at reasonable price. Good size sites, a gravel lot, but the electric and water were in good order. We were going to stay a week, but ended up staying two weeks as it was a nice place to just chill for awhile. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Managers do a great job of keeping the park clean and well maintained. They were friendly and had a lot of useful information about where to find things in Deming. Not sure we would stay here long term but we will definitely be back when we need to stay overnight or for a few days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Escapees RV park with wide gravel roads and sites. You are near I-10 and some railroad tracks (what RV park is not near railroads) but with dual pane windows and a noise machine we barely noticed the proximity. We would definitely return to this park. My rate is the Escapees Club member rate (plus electric at approximately 10 1/2 cents per kilowatt hour.) We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy parking, easy hookups, level sites and great staff! Extra charge from elec but small for my little TT. A lot to do in the area: zoo, museums, etc. Only 2 nights here this trip but next trip will do a week or more. Great for a quick overnight or an extended stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We've stayed here 3 times now. Easy access from I-10, with large pull through gravel sites without any trees or shrubs. No problems at all getting satellite systems on the RV's roof to work. Joined the park's Thanksgiving dinner, had a great time. Electricity is extra @ about 10¢ a KWH. In four nights we used 148 KWH of power, with our two heat pumps, microwave/convection oven and electric water heater. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from 1-10, far enough away so that highway noise was minimal. The sites are level, no landscaping to speak of. It's a great place to stop for the night, friendly staff, activities if you wish to stay longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A desert parking lot. All gravel, no grass, few trees. Sites are a little farther apart than other RV parks but sill close together. Ask for a long pull-through if you have a big rig. Easy access on/off I-10. Close to interstate so expect road noise depending on the wind direction. No Wi-Fi at campsite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an Escapees Park. Rate for Escapees is $12.50/night plus electric. Ample size gravel sites and basic amenities, but nothing fancy. It was windy, and consequently dusty, while we were here, but that's common in this area. It's a good overnight stop at a good price, but not enticing for a long stay. We would stay here again for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We use this park often as an overnight stay. Long, wide sites for big rigs. We got in late and used the handy night sign up. $15.63 for late arrivals one night. Nothing special, but easy in easy out, and the price is right. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Like a parking lot with hookups. Windy almost every day. Dog run is not fenced. Dog run in town has a gang problem. Only recommend for overnight stay. Easy on/off from I-10. Air pump available. Park is very dusty when wind is howling. Park is in need of some attention as things appear to be neglected. NO WIFI. They say you can piggyback on the LaQuinta but I couldn't get a signal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has very friendly staff with an efficient check-in. They are an Escapee park so offer their discount. The park area is graveled and the sites are large enough with space to maneuver big rigs. There is no wifi or cable TV. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were satisfied with everything in the park. Check in parking area was large,long pull throughs with good turning radius. No park cable or Wi-Fi. We knew this ahead of time, so were not disappointed. Usually a social hour at 4pm every day. Good value and we would use it again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has a very friendly staff, and I did see some outside improvements since the last visit. I still don't understand why this park has not installed a free Wi-fi system to compete with other parks in the area. Easy to get in and drive around in the park, the sites are level and plenty long for big rigs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We used this as a stop on our way from Arizona to the east coast. We wished we could have stayed longer. Very nice facilities and wonderful people! We will certainly be back and stay a little longer! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here many times. It is an Escapee membership park. The rate is $12 plus electric for members and $18 plus electric for non-members. We paid $5 plus tax for boon docking only. The check-in folks were very pleasant and helped us to find a repair facility. There is a nice clubhouse & kitchen and low cost meals are offered occasionally. This is a nice, friendly stop over along I-10. We will stop again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place probably hasn't changed in decades. Typical Deming, gravel parking lot, but much more spacious than others. Too bad there's no cable nor wifi. Very basic Escapees park, but older crowd. Rate is $12 + electric; pay when you leave. Nice enough current hosts but not SKP warm. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent a very pleasant week here. The park was about 80% empty this time of year. We requested a site with our back to the afternoon sun, and were quickly and easily accommodated. Management was quite friendly, as were other park guests. We enjoyed the daily afternoon "social hour" a few times and the Sunday evening ice cream social. Our only "complaint" would be the lack of any WiFi options ...even pay WiFi is better than none! $12 is member nightly rate. They also have weekly & monthly rates. We stayed a week. With weekly rate of $65 plus electric, ($20.60 at .10 per KWH) our nightly cost was $13.59. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a great overnight stop for us, the park is mostly empty in the hot summer. Very easy parking and have friendly staff. The Escapees RV club discount is great help. Very easy access to the interstate 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate of $10 is escapees member rate, plus electric. All escapees parks are basic simple parks. No pool, no frills; but I rarely see anybody using such amenities where available, so why pay for them. Very clean and spacious. Good club house with books, pool table, lots of movies for loan. Pancake/sausage breakfast on Saturdays. Easy in and out. A little road noise, but not bad. Yes, the demographics are older, but for a night stop-over, can't be beat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older, very plain but mostly clean Escapees park. The cost is just $10 plus electric for members; $16 for others. There are plenty of other parks in the Deming with more features and not too expensive. This is just a wide dusty parking lot, with no charm, and a lot of grumpy old people. No cable TV, no wifi, no good reason to stick around. Would not return unless desperate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an Escapee park, and members receive a cheeper rate. Close to the interstate with great views of the mountains. A short ride into town, there are some interesting things to see there. Plenty of activities & get togethers planned for guests, very friendly manager & hosts. Park is very clean, large laundry area and restrooms and showers are very clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an Escapees park - open to the public with some of the other usual Escapee amenities. Desert location, fairly remote on the far east side. They do not accept reservations. Friendly welcome, but the desk personnel seemed "worn out" simply tired of all the questions. They have discontinued the 3/1 discount for the dry camping area. Easy access from I-10. Disappointed to find they had discontinued WiFi because, "nobody used it". [It seemed that the average age of the campers was not of the WiFi generation - not a lot of computer use and/or interest in it.] No cable, but satellite signal was good and easy to obtain. We had intended to stay 4 nights, but with the lack of WiFi we changed our plans and only stayed there 1 night. The dirt & gravel sites were well spaced with some mature trees - not much other landscaping to speak of. Plenty of room for our 37’ 5th wheel and F350 Dually. Close to the highway and railroad, but surprisingly quiet. Some of the spaces are ownership sites and there are quite a few permanent and/or work-campers. Metered electric @ 10¢ per kwh. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an escapees campground, but you need not be a member to stay. We paid $17 because we are not members. Campground also has dry-camping available. Wi-Fi is available @$3. 00 for 24 hours. Very pleasant people and very reasonable price. We have stayed at CGs in Deming which cost twice as much --but were not as pleasant! Quiet and convenient to HWY 10. Located next to a Holiday Inn and CG guests may use the pool there. Restaurant is also available at the Holiday Inn, but we did not find the restaurant very good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are looking for a nice quiet place to spend a few days and relax, El Rancho Lobo is a great choice. We had no cell phones, the Wi-Fi worked just fine and the road that takes you in there is also free range for cattle so we had to pass by a small herd to get to the gate that kept the critters outside. I had to get out and manually open the gate. Our rate was the Passport America rate, which does not include electric charges. The lady who logged us in and out met us outside to read the electric meter and collect the fees for spending the night. An odd place by today's standards but we would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is Passport America. We always stop here when we travel I10 going to visit our Grand Kids. Yes, it is a bit off the highway and you have to go down some dirt roads, but that is little inconvenience. It's not like your coach has never had dust on it before. The owners are great. They will open the gate, show you to your place, and stop for a while to chat. We have a tow car and the sites are long enough that we don't have to unhook. Very nice after a long day of travel when all you want to see is a nice level spot where you don't have to put down the jacks or unhook the car. Just put it in park and hook up. Good AC, Verizon signal strong. We will be back anytime in the area. Good, clean, quiet, no hassle place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small, friendly park, out of the way from the other parks on Pine St in downtown Deming. When we arrived the helpful, friendly camp hosts were waiting for us at the gate and escorted us to our spot. We were given a packet of info of the Deming area, a nice pen, and the password for the Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi worked wonderfully the entire time we stayed here. I work as an editor out of our RV so to have reliable internet access was very important. There was a nice picnic table at each site. At first I was disappointed that we were parked in the "short term" pull-through RV sites in the gravel area before the main campground and clubhouse. But I quickly discovered this area was just as nice as it could be with very friendly neighbors (permanent residents). The clubhouse was adequate with TV, videos, and a book exchange. Although we were just off the freeway we could barely hear the traffic or the trains just on the other side of the freeway. Other reviewers have mentioned the 2-1/2 miles of dirt road to get to the campsite. This can be avoided by driving to Deming and coming in from the west. By using this route you only have less than half a mile of dirt road and even on windy days it wasn't a problem. We did have a lot of wind while here, but that's to be expected in March and April. Several days it was so bad we stayed in the RV all day. The park is pet friendly and they let us use the exercise pen for our small dogs. We would be happy to stay here again if in the area. The price reflects a month stay as Passport America members. They also offer Escapee and Happy Camper discounts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not too bad for the price. Ample room for our 39' RV and truck to park still hooked up. Noise from route 10 but not a deal breaker. Be aware that there is a 2.5 mile gravel road to drive in on. Gets the rig filthy. Very nice staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is off the beaten path but very nice. Was greeted by staff and given a welcome package to the area. We were in the short term area but the site was level although out in the wind. WI-FI was very good. Was there for only one night but plan on staying longer the next time out! Not a lot of frills but a great value! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. Electric was 12 cents per kwh. This is a small campground with a gravel area on the outskirts of the campground with several level pull-thru, FHU sites with 50 amp service. There was free Wi-Fi, but it was quite slow at times. This place is nothing fancy, but adequate. The bathroom was clean and the camp hosts were friendly. It was quite windy while we were there and very dusty. We would have given this campground a higher rating, but the 2 mile gravel road to get to it makes it lose points. Our truck and camper were filthy with dust by the time we got to the campground. Because of this, we would not camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The bathroom was very clean. The park was very quiet, very few people were there. The campground hosts were friendly and very helpful (even offered to come and get me if I had trouble finding the place). My only disappointment was that my requested pull-through site was in a gravel parking lot outside the gates of the "main" campground. That was Ok for my overnight, but I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time in that type of setting. I would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The only thing not about this park is the road to it. Other than that, the restrooms, very clean played pool and enjoyed the time out and off the road for a while. Hosts' were all very nice and accommodating, plus helped thaw out my water lines, -10 degs was a bit cool. Highly recommend, and will go back one day . Highway noise, very minimal and we were backed up to the fence. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We plan to spend the winter, and the monthly rent is $140. plus electric. Campground is clean, pleasant and very private. All the utilities work wonderfully. Campground hosts are very friendly and helpful. This pretty place is out of the way from I-10, about 11 miles east of Deming on a private road with no street lights for folks coming in after dark. We can faintly hear the highway in the distance. Sunsets are unbelievably gorgeous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Long term spaces are in a circle, inside a fence, with trees, near the clubhouse. The sites outside the circle are simply a graveled, rocky parking lot, although they are level. Electricity is metered at 12.5 cents per kwh. Wi-Fi is restricted, as the whole park is not allowed more than 350 MB/day, so they advise you to only check your email and not download anything. Our view out the front window is of I-10, and you DO get highway noise, despite host's claim to the contrary. I couldn't tell what color our motorhome was from the back, due to the dust on the 2-1/2 mile road here, but they do allow you to rinse the dust off. I wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an interesting place. Very nice people, clean gravel sites and a real bargain with passport. One negative is the road to the park. I would highly recommend you unhook your tow vehicle before going down that road and crawl in. 5th wheels stay a lot cleaner on that trip and they will let you rinse off your rig when you arrive. There is a cattle operation and cattle roam that area and where there are cattle there are flies. We probably won't stay again says the co-pilot but it wasn't a bad experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park if you want to relax in peace and quiet. The manager is extremely nice and accommodating. The road in is rough and unpaved. You can get some TV with an antenna. We would stay here again, if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here on Passport America and found it to be an excellent campground for the price. The sites are spacious, the management is friendly and helpful. It's a little bit off the beaten track (12 miles from the eastbound exit I-10, 2 miles from westbound exit I-10) but well worth the trip. You have to go over a dirt road for 2.5 miles but it's pretty smooth. Some snowbirds here. If you're looking for a long term quiet campground or a short 2 or 3 night stay, this is definitely recommended. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to spend the night. Clean and neat facility. Very friendly staff. Nice desert view. Dirt road to campground can be dusty. Close to great restaurant (something Deli) Passport America accepted. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is in the middle of the desert with excellent views of area mountains and beautiful sunsets. The original 18 sites are fenced in, but the owner has added an additional 16 sites in a large gravel lot outside the fenced area. Most of these sites are very large pull-thrus. This area is currently not landscaped since it is new. I like the new area because of the feeling of camping in the desert. You can see for miles in all directions. I10 is about a half-mile away and in plain site, but there is rarely any noise from the highway. The one downside is that the campground is unprotected from the high winds during Spring. We have experienced wind gusts up to 50 mph this month. However, we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly. Passport America. Homey atmosphere. Laundry facilities with real dryers (not big commercial ones). Long way from town but well worth the drive. Great little restaurant about a mile down the road. Had intended to stay 1 nite but when we arrived decided to stay 2! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped at this park to rest for a couple of nights and was pleasantly surprised. The spaces were long and did not have to unhook the toad and there was room for slide outs and awnings with out the feeling being overly cramped. The owners are very nice and this is a 7000 acre working ranch and the RV park is in the middle. There are all kinds of wildlife to see and plenty of room for 4 wheelers to have fun. The only negative things is that it is very dusty but it is in the desert. The last 5 miles in are dirt and wash boarded, but if you go slowly you are fine. Would stay here again if near the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate was Passport America which they take anytime and for any length of time (although the weekly rate is very reasonable). This is really a neat place. 360 degree views from campground and BLM property all around so you can hike or ATV for miles. Those who have ATVs here are very courteous and drive responsibly. They don't drive too fast or recklessly. The drive to the park, as others have said, is on a gravel road so it takes awhile to travel those 7 miles. However, once we got there we were greeted by the friendliest people we have ever met. The owners are great and very accommodating. We felt very comfortable there. The wi-fi was the best we have ever had at an RV park although you cannot download large files or watch streaming videos. All utilities worked well and they have propane on site. We could only get one channel over the air (CBS) and we had to drive down the road "a piece" in order to get AT&T cell service. We stayed for 8 days and definitely will be back next year for a longer stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate is for Coast to Coast at $15 + $2 for daily internet. This is a great park but is not for everyone. The valley is beautiful with lots of hiking trails and OHV trails. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. There are many long term and mid-term residents here, but all are friendly and hospitable. The owners are a wonderful family who work very hard on the property. The $2 rate for the internet is a steal as we found it to be the best to date on our (so far) 3 month trip. This place is great if you have dogs. The wide open valley (outside the fence) is available for letting your pooch off lease but you still need to bag your dog's droppings! The reason this great park may not be for everyone is that you need to drive on a gravel road for about 7 miles. That can be hard on some rigs. We had no problem but took it very slow! But if you're going to explore the area this adds to your travel time coming and going. The utilities were centrally located on the site so should work for most RV designs. The water pressure was sufficient. Cable is not available but our DirecTV satellite worked fine. Our T-Mobile did not. Also, although the sites are all pull throughs and have generous lengths and widths, they are gravel with no picnic tables or pads so outdoor seating is not ideal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park in the desert away from town. The ride in on the dirt road is fine, worth the trip. Sites were spacious, bathrooms clean and warm. Rate is for five using PA. The propane fill is competitively priced. We met some nice folks in the clubhouse; one fulltime resident gave us a private 4 x 4 ride to the old mines and a homestead in the area. Wi-Fi worked great for a small fee. Dish satellite in the clubhouse worked on two TVs. The laundry had new reasonably priced machines. Make sure you stop at the museum in town before you leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Passport America with Wi-Fi charges. What a hidden gem! It is at the end of a 7-mile gravel road but it is worth every mile. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The owner took us out to look at some petroglyphs close by in his ATV and to see his 9 horses. They have only owned this park a little over a year but they really know how to make people feel welcome. Will definitely come back for a longer stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The nightly rate reflects Passport America and the extra WIFI charge. This is a very nice RV Park. Owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The long term residents are very welcoming. I feel it necessary to comment that the Cross on the Hill mentioned in a previous post is not on the RV Park's property so is totally out of their control. In addition it is my understanding that it was placed there by the owner of the property in memory of a family member who died while in the military serving our country. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We are back again. When we first came to this park 4 years ago we fell in love with it and the people here. We have returned every year since then and stayed 3 month each time. In Dec of 2012, I had no idea that before we would leave we would end up signing a long term lease and buying a park model trailer, but we did. Now we plan on spending 6 to 7 months out of the year here. You just can't find a better place to stay, short or long term, this is the best. Great family owners, great permanent residents, and the best view around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects PA rate. $89/wk plus electricity. WiFi works well. Tailgator works well. Laundry room clean and not too expensive ($1.25 to wash, same to dry). Sites are okay, but ours is none too level. All gravel and dirt so when the wind blows there is a dust factor. And the wind does blow. Permanents are very friendly and welcoming as are the actual owners of the ranch/park. Some activities - bingo and pot lucks to name a few. Good areas for our dog to roam free. Overall rating reflects the distance from town as well as the gravel and dust (a good ten miles, 7 of that gravel). Those were the only negatives we came up with. We would return if we are ever in the area again. So very nice and quiet and very dark at night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Passport America, but even without it, the weekly rate is only $100. I am not a SW kind of person. I like green & lakes, but this place is close to paradise in the winter. Located in a valley with beautiful views of all the different surrounding peaks. Staff is wonderful, permanent residents are very friendly and welcoming. After only two days, we felt like a part of the RV park family. We were originally going to stay for a week and extended it to 2 weeks. Lots of open range trails for ATV's. I really love it here. Has neat gravel sites, but just a little too close for my liking. Full Hook Ups. Bathrooms are clean. The laundry is clean and spacious, with nice hand painted garden mural on walls. Park is very pet friendly. Park is surrounded by open range where you can let your dogs loose if you'd like. On leash in park. WiFi is available for $2./day. Connection isn't very good, but better than nothing. We could not get internet with our Verizon service. No Verizon internet. No Sprint internet. No bars on either the Verizon or AT&T phones. There is a book exchange in a large, library type room. All categorized. Mail delivery accepted We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a charming RV park nestled in a hidden valley aways out of the city, but well worth the drive. I stayed one night, but enjoyed the wide space, beautiful surroundings and very friendly people. I would definitely stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a fairly long drive on country roads into the campground, but after questioning our decision to go that far off the main road, we arrived and realized it was a good decision after all. We recommend just taking it easy on the road instead of kicking up a lot of rocks, and it's a little dusty but fine. The people there are amazingly friendly and helpful. The owner even came out to see if he could help with any hooking up issues that might occur. The sites are not completely level, but we were able to use levelers to get things level. I expect this summer they will work on these sites to level them out a bit. They only took over the campground in September, but it looks like they are working now to optimize things. The sites are nicely spaced out and you can get a site right on the desert and have a lovely view. The have a nice laundry, too. And a tennis court that is fenced and they allowed the dogs to run in there, chasing a ball. Everything here is tidy, clean and welcoming. It is really a great spot. My only reservation, and it is a small one. There is a large cross on the hill as you come in and signs announcing bible study classes. Everyone has a right to display their religious preferences as they wish, of course. But for those who have religious preferences other than Christianity or who have no religious preferences, it might be a bit of a put-off for some. Overall, this place is great and the people who staff it are extremely friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
When we stayed at Hidden Valley Ranch three years ago, we loved the desert setting, but were not impressed with the cold, rude reception in the office. We decided to return anyway, and couldn't believe the difference! The new owners and office staff have made this one of the friendliest RV parks we've stayed in over the past several years! The owner came to our campsite to see if everything went well with our hook-up! The permanent and long-term residents are delighted with the new owners and management as well. If you had a bad experience in the past at Hidden Valley Ranch, give staying there another chance if you're in the area. We stayed here on our AOR membership. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
8 mile dirt road to the park made the rig a mess. Friendly check in, PA rate, facilities worked well, $2 for wifi, worked well, site not very level (front to back), easy entry/exit, very quiet. Too bad about the dirt road, we would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Oh, my gosh, we love this park. We checked in at the Passport America rate for 3 days, and decided to stay for 2 months. The new owners are terrific, friendly, and very welcoming. There are lots of activities with a daily 3 p.m. coffee hour. If you have an ATV you will be in heaven because there are so many trails here in the desert. Quiet, adult park, with the most friendly staff and those that reside here. We were unsure when we originally came in as it is a 7 mile dirt road to get to the ranch. But, the place is beautiful and the desert and mountains have many trails to try. See the Indian petroglyphs, enjoy the sunsets, love the quiet. Their Wi-Fi is $2.00 a day at your site and works very well. Laundry room very clean and the restrooms and showers were immaculate. This is a perfect place to sit and relax. There are lots of places to visit in the area or you just sit outside and enjoy the desert life. This may just be our next winter destination. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
You will wonder whether you have made a good choice when you are on the 7 miles of gravel road in the middle of the desert to get here, but hang in as Hidden Valley Resort is well worth it. The owners are incredibly friendly and hospitable as are the other winter residents. We stayed a week at the Passport America rate, as there is no limit to the length of time you can stay on that rate, and there is no electricity metering over and above. There is a very well stocked lending library and DVD's can be rented for $1.00. The washrooms and laundry room are immaculate. The desert and mountain views are incredible with beautiful sunrises and starry starry nights. We don't have the winter to spend, but if we did this would be a wonderful place to spend it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have been here for almost a week and just signed up for another week. We love the peace and quiet here along with the beautiful scenery. The owner is great and always there to help you if needed. He and his family live on the property so there is always someone around. There are planned activities that you can participate in or just sit out in your chair and enjoy the weather and the beautiful mountains and desert. Deming is about 10 miles away and there is a Walmart, K Mart, movie theater/bowling alley, auto parts stores, restaurants and more. To get here there is about 7 miles of dirt/gravel road but it is flat no holes. We hear the coyotes in the distance sometimes and we have seen quail and jack rabbits. It is a great place to just relax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here three nights on Passport rate. Great place. ATV friendly. Mines, rocks, and trails. New owners are very friendly and helpful. Laundry room has 6 commercial Maytag washers and dryers. If you are looking for a winter stay, it would be an excellent place. Long pull throughs, all gravel. You have to travel down a well maintained gravel road about 7 miles, but it a pleasant surprise when you arrive at park. Very peaceful and quiet. Large recreation room with kitchen. Lots of books to share. If we didn't live in Florida, I would spend the winter here! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We absolutely LOVE this RV park. The new owners are absolutely wonderful and their twin boys are the most polite and helpful young men I have ever met in my life (and that is a long life). The park is beautiful and very well maintained. The restrooms were very clean. Laundry facilities were great and the clubhouse was buzzing with activities. We would love to live here year around (and just might do it). There are miles and miles of ATV trails and rocks for the collectors. The stars are amazing and it is so peaceful and quite. I would give this park a 10 out of 10. There is a gravel road to go over to get there, but it is more than worth it when you get there. If you want a wonderful escape from the city life, go to this park! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were here last year and we liked it enough that we came back and plan to stay 3 months this time. I would give this place a 10 except I have to deduct some for the 7 miles of gravel road. It was good to see that 6 of the front row facing the mountains were the same ones in them last year. This is not an over night stop. If you want a quiet peaceful place with great people to be around this is the place. If you want highway traffic and trains all night this isn't the place for you. We'll be back for 3 to 4 months next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of those must do once campgrounds. We spent a week here and loved every minute of it! The Wi-Fi worked very well, only cut off for 1/2 an hour each day. The pull-throughs are a substantial size. Since the wind can be a problem at certain times of the day, it would be a bother to put out the awning. The clubhouse has a vast library of books, videos and DVDs. There are numerous things to do, bongo and game nights, puzzles, pool table and much more. The office is only open 10 to noon, but the clubhouse is open all the time. Nice laundry facilities, with option to hang clothes on their outside line, and they dried in no time. Full hook-ups all work fine. Metered electric. Originally pulled into #E-5, but there is a large cactus that hangs into the drive, we were unable to reach utilities and put the slide out, so moved to E-4. Facing the mountains and desert, it is a wonderful view. Roadrunners, jackrabbits and quail are abundant. The coyotes are plentiful at night, along with some other creatures I could not identify. The only downside to this park, is the 7 miles of dirt road into the ranch. We were only able to drive our motorhome about 10 miles per hour due to the washboard effect, and could not go to the side as it was very soft. The lady in the office admitted that the grader had done a poor job on the dirt road. As a conclusion, although we loved the ranch very much, I would not come back due to the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is very remote and too far off the highway for a one night stay. The road to it is dusty and not that smooth. Our vehicle and trailer were covered with dust. It was extremely windy the day we were here but that is not the campground's fault. I understand that windy is the norm here, though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place defines remote which can be okay. I got tired of the dirt and dust, though. My toad on a dolly got filthy on the 7 miles of gravel road and we had dust inside the MH also. I got a very unlevel pull through site that was too narrow to use my awning once I parked to avoid the Joshua tree. The office staff is very friendly which was a good thing because the Wi-Fi is very iffy, off more than on. I had to get help from the staff which included getting access to their private network. I don't think I'll be back here again, too remote, too dusty, poor Wi-Fi, no table, no fire pit, narrow slot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is about 12 miles from Deming,NM. It is in between some mountains and is considered the High Desert. The owners are very nice, and the people here are very friendly. There is always some kind of activity going on at the club house and even if you are new to the park, you are always invited to join in. The park is located at the end of a 7 mile gravel road. But you will be glad you traveled that 7 miles. The park, the owners, the other campers, and the scenery are well worth it. The amount I listed was for a monthly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The pull-thrus were fairly level gravel and adequate width. We used our Direct TV dish. Wi-Fi was adequate. Our Sprint air card didn't work. Also our Sprint phones were iffy. The campground was on 8 miles of reasonable gravel road, but was very peaceful and quiet. The sky was great. Stars would have been great if not for outside lights of the other campers. Great desert hiking or ATVing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Level sites, clean park and friendly manager. I appreciated the isolated location. It is located about 8 miles down a gravel road. Wildlife was refreshing to be seen in this truly hidden valley. If you plan to stay here, I recommend you be prepared to enjoy the park. Being 16 miles round-trip on a gravel road, you will be reluctant to go to town. Also, Deming isn't anything to visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is a few minutes out of town, but I found that an advantage, as it was a quiet desert setting. The road was in great shape when we visited. It's a very social park, with lots going on in the clubhouse. In the 4 days I was here, there were club meetings, bingo nights, card nights, potlucks, etc. for guests. The grounds were clean, and staff was friendly. Although no store, you can purchase ice cream, soda and coffee in the clubhouse on the honor system. The internet reception is good, but limited to the clubhouse. You will need a dish, or can check out videos from a fairly large collection. One negative at my site was that I had to pick up a 90 degree hose connection converter to get water. The hookup was in ground and did not allow enough room to connect a hose. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here on a road trip from Tucson to Denver one night. Since we only spent one very windy night here on our mad dash, I’ll only comment on the things I observed in that short time. First, be prepared to drive off the beaten path to get here. Had we known it was so far off of the road we probably would have chosen another park –again we just needed a place to land for a night. This needs to be a destination for you if you consider it, not just a quickie stop. The layout is all pull-through and very level. It seems a bit tight considering the size of the property. No fire rings, no tables and the sewer hookup for us (Class A) in the 30-amp space was a little odd (way far back in the space). Wi-Fi is only available in the rec hall and YOU GET NO CELL COVERAGE HERE. Beautiful quail and small birds everywhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I will stay at this park every time I'm in the Deming, New Mexico area. The staff and campers are very friendly. There is allot of wildlife that comes into the park. The only problem is the dirt road coming into the park, but once you are here, it's heaven. Very quiet: no trains or trucks or traffic. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
You won’t find a more peaceful and beautiful setting to camp, especially if you’re looking for a place to relax for lengthy period of time. Like the name implies, the campground is well off any highway, providing plenty of beautiful desert and mountain scenery to look at, walk in, or ATV in. However, there are some problems in this paradise setting that may keep us from returning. You have to travel over 6 miles on dirt roads to get there, and contrary to some other reviews, we found several sections of the road filled with severe washboards, which shook our 41ft motor home like crazy – no matter what speed we tried. Additionally, the trailing dust cloud we created left the coach completely covered, including much of the inside. Since we tow motorcycles instead of a car, we elected not to endure the road back out of camp to do any exploring and instead; did our exploring on foot. We had a great time exploring the desert terrain while doing a little geocaching. Our site had a beautiful view, but also had quite a down slope; requiring blocks to compensate for. For some strange rationale, the owner will not allow large RVs to use 30-amp service with a pig-tail connection. Instead, we had to take a 50-amp site, which is fine, but cost a little more and was not needed. The staff is very friendly but only available 9-12 Mon thru Sat – which was quite inconvenient at times. WIFI is available, but make sure you ask about the password when you check in, since the staff is hard to find if you decide to ask later. Never the less, if you have an ATV, jeep or car in tow, then this campground would provide one of the quietest, and most tranquil camping experiences you’ll ever find – especially for an extended stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here from June 1 until July 29, 2009. This campground is approximately 7 miles down a very well maintained, dirt road. The area is peaceful and quiet. It has all the amenities you could need. The people who own and run the park are very nice and accommodating. Deming, New Mexico has several RV parks located in town. We are country folks and thankful we took the time to drive the few extra miles to Hidden Valley. We had a wonderful time here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Rate reflects ROD price for 50 amp. Hidden Valley is an appropriate name for this park as it is at the end of 7 miles of a well maintained gravel road - very much in the middle of nowhere. But it is worth the trip. What a lovely, peaceful place. Very helpful and friendly staff. We were only able to stay one night but we are looking forward to a chance to return and stay longer. I'm not sure this would be my first choice if I had a lot of exploring planned or if I needed to be in Deming every day. It's a long dusty ride from the campground to "town". But if I had a week or so to just relax this would be near the top of my list. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price is PA discount. After about eight miles down a good dirt road, which was actually better than the beginning paved part, the appropriately named park appeared. Located in a very scenic desert (for southern NM). Good level sites. Only downside to me was the use of the many ATVs as transportation around the park by guests too lazy to walk. Too noisy in such a quiet, remote location. I would stay there again. Nicer than most parks in Deming. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground is considerably north of Deming and most of access roads are unpaved. However the trip is worth it if you enjoy getting out in the boonies, away from noise. You won't find a swimming pool, store or other amenities here, but campground is well maintained and spaces are more than adequate in size. This could be good for an extended stay--rates are very reasonable. Management is friendly and helpful. Less than 30 minutes away from Wal-Mart Supercenter. Only drawback was dust from unpaved roads in campground. Nice views of mountains. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The 7 miles of gravel road were well maintained. I would recommend unhooking your toad before driving in on the gravel. The grounds were clean and well kept. We enjoyed the remote setting in the desert. This is a good location for sightseeing in the Deming/Silver City area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Long dirt road, but very well maintained. RV park is very well laid out and sites are pretty level. Lots of cactus and birds roaming around. Well marked trails for walking and some ATV trails also. Laundry facilities are clean and new. Owners very friendly and clubhouse has large library of books and video's and DVD's to rent. Limited cell phone service, but Wi-Fi is available for $1 per night. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was fun. At first we had our doubts because you must drive 7 miles on a dirt road. Once we got there we really enjoyed our time. Great laundry facility, large and generally level sites, and lots of desert hiking. There are a lot of things to do within reasonable driving distance. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If it weren't for the 7 mile VERY dusty road in and out, this would be rated an 8. Once there we enjoyed the 4-wheeling in our Jeep and the birds, other wildlife and Indian/Army history. If you like remoteness, dust (and not being allowed to wash rig or toad), limited cell service, then this is a great spot!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
No cable. No wifi, though the park says it's here. No cell service. Too far from anywhere to easily restock and pretty dirty for full-timers, especially with the large population of permanent residents driving close by to get in and out constantly. I wouldn't return, but I'm not camping. I live here. Without a sat dish, this would be a small step above boon-docking. AOR price may be low, but after the thousands we spend buying in, that's hardly the point. Some services would make this rating a lot higher. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a gem! Well-maintained large gravel sites, connections all worked well, got signals on both dishes easily. Warm, friendly owner greeted us, pointed to the on-site petroglyphs, invited us to the evening pot-luck/card games. No cell phone signal at our site, but out in front of the office there was. Phone in office, too. Huge library: take one, leave one. Videos and DVDs to rent cheap. And the scenery is unequalled dramatic desert/mountain/wildlife. Propane on site, cheaper than in Deming. Great price with AOR. Yes, the approach road is gravel and a tad dusty. So what. If you like the desert, seclusion, quiet, breathtaking sunsets and moonrises, and nice folks, come here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was set up nice and the view was excellent with great sunsets. The price we paid was with Adventure Outdoor Resort. (AOR) The downside was the road. It was seven miles on a gravel washboard road. Our car had a bra on it that was filled with rocks, and we got dings all over the front of the car. The car itself had 1/4 to 1/2 inches of dirt all over it. The windshield, hood, roof and you name it. The back of the motorhome was the same and my husband's bike on the back looked like a blob, you couldn't tell what it was. We have never encountered anything like this. Needless to say, my husband was very upset, and we weren't allowed to wash down vehicles. I would never go back there because of the road. If they ever tar it, then I would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this campground is basically a large gravel parking lot and the campsites are rather closer together, the folks in the office are friendly and helpful and the facilities are tidy and clean. For those reasons, this was my second visit to this park for an over night. My site was level and the utilities were all in working order. A train passes occasionally in the distance, but I don't find it disturbing. I would definitely return again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place has sites with 30 Amp electric which flucuates from 108 to 112 but never reached 120 volts while we were there. It is located one block from the Interstate and two blocks from the Railroad Tracks. Traffic noise and train noise was very loud, all night long. We would not stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for an overnight and found it very clean and quiet. With Passport it only costs $7. McDonalds and Taco Bell a stone's throw away and not far off the interstate. We got a pull-thru and we fit fine but our neighbors are VERY close. It's tight and close quarters but very doable. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, including their pet kitty who greets everyone. We would stay here again for an overnight and recommend it as a very good overnighter park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were on our way to Arizona when our transmission went out of the truck. We chose a site along the fence with water and electric only for one night at $12. When our truck was destroyed by fire after the transmission was replaced we were given a pull through site. We were there for 3 weeks having to find another truck and get the hitch transferred to the new truck. The managers adjusted our rate to the monthly rate. They were extremely friendly and helpful in sugesting places to see and shop. They told us about Cano's Restaurant where they serve some of the best food we ever ate and a desert called banana in a blanket that is to die for! We will definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Small park, but centrally located. Friendly managers. Small sites, but pull thru's in many. Next door to Mcdonalds so if you don't feel like cooking walk over for a burger. The town has an outstanding museum. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra day. We camped here in a camper.
Park is well-maintained, but essentially is just a big gravel parking lot. Back two rows seem to be the transient spots as they are the only ones with 50 amp. Sites are wide and long enough for big rigs. Standing water when it rains. Nice indoor pool and small hot tub. Rec room with two pool tables, a lounge and a big social hall with kitchen. Bathrooms and laundries were clean. Laundry machines were inexpensive and worked well. Cable went in and out but it might have been because of the rain. Wi-Fi was iffy. There was some highway and train noise but not excessive. Convenient to shopping and local attractions. Very easy to get in and out and has good access to I-10. Office personnel very friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good Sam rate. Very nice RV park - clean, organized, lots of room to maneuver. Mainly a "snowbird" park so we had no neighbors around us, which was nice. Did take advantage of the hot tub (even though it was hot out) because the room was air conditioned! Good Wi-Fi and cable TV both free. Gravel sites but level. Would definitely stay here again for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good overnight stop. Large site, stayed attached. Friendly people, had an ice cream social and country music jam. Dog friendly. Wi-Fi did not work. All utilities fine, Verizon good. Will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have always stayed here on our trip through Deming, NM. Campground is very nice but the 2 rows of 50 amp sites back by the park models are very tight. The person who checked us in was not very friendly or happy to see anyone. She lined up all the campers side by side instead of spacing out one site. Swimming pool and hot tub was nice. Other campers were friendly. Seems that this is a winter destination and most of the snowbirds were already gone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient location off I-10. Located along a street with several other RV parks. Check-in was quick and staff very helpful with answers about the park plus dining recommendations. Site was level and fine gravel. They sell tasty pecans from a nearby orchard. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Decent campground clean showers and restrooms. Indoor pool and hot tub that were clean. The grounds are mostly gravel with a few trees. Right off the main road, but it didn't bother us. We would stay here again. Not high end, but decent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Check in was fast and friendly. Also, the parking area for check in was very large. Sites are spaced well and the driveways leading to the sites are huge making it easy for large RVs. Wi-Fi was fairly quick. There was some train noise but no train horn. My only complaint is that the water spigot was right next to the dump hook-up. Like 2" away and at the same level. I used a sanitary wipe to clean off the spigot threads before connecting our hose but still used bottled water to drink. I would stay here again because it is a nice place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Entire campground is gravel with just a few trees here and there. Sites are pretty close, side by side in rows. Lady was very pleasant at check in. There is a pool but didn't use it, laundry looked okay and bathroom/showers were good. Really can't see this place as a destination, we were here for an overnight stop when traveling thru. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is a neat, clean, well maintained RV park. The park is mostly gravel with a few trees and shrubs. Sites are large, level pull through. It is big rig friendly, also satellite friendly. The park is conveniently located on Business I-10 thru town. We have stayed there many times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped here for an overnight stay and spent a total of three days. Campground has not changed much in the last 17 years. Friendly and helpful staff. The interior of the park is covered with pea gravel and sites are level. Utilities are located near the end of the sites, had to stretch out the water, electric, and sewer lines to make the connections. Did not use the indoor pool or restrooms so I cannot comment on their condition. There are a few sites that have a tree for shade and/or a table. WalMart and K-Mart are near by as are several restaurants. The park is near the interstate highway and railroad so there is some noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is nice and clean with level graveled sites. Snowbird sites in the rear and overnighters up front. The park is near stores and gas stations. Easy on and off freeway. Office staff friendly and helpful. Dog walk did have burrs. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Actual price was $26.33 which reflects Good Sam discount for 30-amp water/electric/sewer pull-through. Fairly level gravel sites. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked fine. No train noise! Pool and spa were closed for repairs, but we would not have used them anyway. This is a snow bird destination. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A great little park for our overnight needs, near the east end of town. Friendly, helpful staff. Easy in-and-out. We make a point of staying at this park each time we pass through this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a dirt lot. Gravel and a few trees. Very few trees. If you are overnight in Deming, pick the least expensive, they all look the same. The railroad runs all night long and you will have that effect in all of the campgrounds because most of them are close to each other. As we were leaving we passed a K-Mart and they had some motorhomes in their lot. That would be less dirt and less money. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for one week, sites are large, lots of pull-throughs. Laundry, club house and all of campground was nice and clean. They did not over charge on weekly power usage. Only problem we had was poor Wi-Fi; we were in back section where the Wi-Fi was very unreliable. Worked good in club house. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here several times when passing through the area. The rate cited is with the GS discount. True, it is all gravel. Bathrooms and showers were super clean and have music piped in. The Wi-Fi was down when we were there but the cable TV was excellent. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one weekday night in mid-October. This is a fairly large park with mostly pull-through sites. About 1/3 of the sites are 50 amp (most of these are in the back 2 pull-through rows) and the rest are 30 amp. There park was less than half full when we were there. There appear to be some early seasonal/extended stay customers and about 20 yearly rental sites. We had a full hookup site in the back half of the park with 50+ channel cable TV and Wi-Fi that worked OK for us. Our site was also satellite friendly as are most of the sites in the back. The front half of the park has some trees. There is an indoor pool and hot tub between the office and clubhouse. The back section has it's own bathhouse and laundry (these facilities are also found in the office building at the front of the park). Yes, it is a large gravel parking lot, but it seems to be well run, has good facilities and amenities, and the price is reasonable. Lots of shopping and places to eat are just are a mile to the west. Counting Little Vineyard, there are 4 RV parks in a row on this stretch of E. Pine Street in Deming. They all look somewhat alike from the street, but some looked a bit more crowded than here. I think we made the right choice with Little Vineyard. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here for an unexpected, one night stay. Friendly person on phone. Park was near empty (it was July). Clean, level, gravel lots and quiet area but no shade. We traveled in a 40 ft. with toad and didn't have to unhook. Would stay again if in area, but I prefer a place with a little more shade and scenery. We camped here in a Motorhome.
By no stretch of the imagination is this park a "resort". Pluses - check in was easy and friendly, site flat & level, utilities worked, Wi-Fi adequate. In other words OK for an overnight. However - the few trees are in the front of the park, which is deceiving, when you head back to your 50 amp site in the back of the gravel parking lot, it looks a lot different, and sites are long, but narrow. Not their fault - trains very noisy, going through about hourly and through the night, also quite a bit of road noise from I-10. Must say park was clean and we would probably stop there for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All sites are pull-thru and level so didn't have to unhitch for overnight stop. The indoor pool and hot tub were both very nice, as was the laundry. Restrooms are OK and there is a very good activity building with a TV room and pool tables etc. Wifi was adequate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Check in was fast and friendly. Site was gravel, as is most of the park. At little grass towards the front for walking the dog. Cable was excellent and the Wi-Fi was better than most. Definitely will stay here again if we stop in Deming. Good for an overnighter or to stay for checking out the area. If there was more grassy area for the pets it would get a 9. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second time we have stayed in this park. It's very easy to access from I-10. The area is flat, gravel, and lots of space to maneuver. We would recommend this RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice looking place! Gravel roads and level gravel sites, mostly pull throughs. Sites are a bit close but the office looks like they put people every other site until they have to put them next door. Baths & showers are clean but old. Much dog waste along the fence was not being picked up. Then to my favorite complaint: the Wi-Fi was slow to dead. We ended up using our Verizon Hot Spot again. Getting tired of paying for Wi-Fi and it not being useable. I wonder if I can get a $4 or $5 deduction from the bill when I check in if I promise not to use their Wi-Fi? We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Plain park, gravel, no landscaping. OK for overnight, not much in area to do. Walmart just down the street for shopping. Cable worked well, Wi-Fi was bad with so many people on it. Got up at 5:30 am it worked OK. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very plain park. Adequate for an overnight. WiFi was claimed to be okay unless there were "too many people on it." (To me, "too many" means inadequate.) In any event, I was unable to connect night or morning even tho signal appeared strong. Not much else to say since we stayed only one night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wi-Fi works if you are on the right hotspot in the park. There is one close to the road and one in the back. The one closest to the road works best. Park is all gravel. The bathrooms area a little dated. The pool and hot tub looked great and they have a nice recreation building. If I stay in Deming again, I will probably try some other park to see if they have better Wi-Fi service. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very friendly staff and the cheapest propane I have encountered. The site was plenty long but there isn't much room between sites. All sites are gravel and it is dusty. We stayed one night. The rate was Good Sam. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We very much enjoyed our week stay here. 50 amp service, the pool and spa were clean and very nice being indoors, laundry room and showers were clean. They had several events happening...ice cream socials, a "garage' sale, hamburger night ...all with really warm and friendly staff and RVers. We played pool and visited, used their mail room a few times. Yes, it's gravel and can be windy, but hey! it's the desert! We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a surprise, a great stopover on I-10. Ez in Ez out just off the interstate. Sites are close together but don't feel like it. Staff was pleasant, reasonably priced for site. No frills park but all you need to make a nice stay. We'll stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel parking lot with no shade trees. Level and large sites. Electric and water were OK. Indoor pool was nice because weather was too hot to be outside. It was too windy to put out the awning on the day we were there, and it was all the AC's would do to keep the inside cool. Nothing the park could do about that. Easy to find in a row of RV parks just off of I-10. Wife did laundry and did not complain about facility, so must have been OK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed a full 30 days and paid the summer rate of $225 plus 12.5 cent electric. The indoor pool was nice as was the strong jacuzzi. The staff was friendly, and I enjoyed my stay here. No problem with neighbors. The campgrounds were kept clean even after stormy monsoon weather. Recommended. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just stopped here for an overnighter. Trees at every other spot. Basic, but clean bathrooms with showers. Very nice indoor pool and one of the few with one open right now. Make sure to call ahead to find out if the parks with pools are actually open because most of the pools were closed when I called. The managers are super friendly and great. Overall a very nice, quiet park that we would visit again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Second time we've stayed here and we still like it better than the other parks nearby. At this time of year, it's not crowded so I can't address the electric problem posted by an earlier reviewer. We were here in December, too, and had no problem with the electric then either. Indoor pool and hot tub. Large easy-in, easy-out sites. Immaculate laundry ($1.00 per washer/dryer) and restrooms. Lots of good cable channels. Trains and interstate nearby but you don't really hear them. Plenty to see in the area and lots of geocaching. WalMart, K-Mart, Peppers, pharmacies, auto stores, etc. within 5 minutes' drive. Only thing missing is an RV repair/supply store. Great museum! And within easy drive to Rockhound and City of Rocks State Parks plus other sightseeing places. The only negative I can find about Little Vineyard is their Wi-Fi is not dependable. Oftentimes, it has dropped me in the middle of some important work. Maybe a few more repeaters or whatever they're called, especially along the back, would be helpful. We will definitely stay here again on our way west next year and recommend this park to others. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nightly rate based on month long stay. The park had working cable and good water pressure. Those were the only positives. When this park nears capacity, they have electrical issues. They insisted the problem was our rig, so we paid a repairman to come check it out. The repairman showed us that the problem was with the park, not our rig. He would have made more money if the problem had been our rig. We later found out this is a common problem in this park. We attempted to discuss this with the owner, but she flat out refused to take or return phone calls once she knew we were staying in the park. Very unprofessional. The park is old, and not well maintained. Everywhere they have signs threatening eviction, just a very negative atmosphere. Some of the employees were friendly, but they give the impression of working in a high stress environment. We will skip Deming entirely in the future. The park next door resembles a junk yard (the pool is still full of tires, dirt and tarps), nothing impressive in the area, except maybe the Walmart lot. When the wifi worked it was very slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, check in was very friendly, sites are level, easy to get into and plenty of room in between and easy to maneuver in and out of the park. They also had a fair price for their propane. We would stay here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
Considering the other parks in the area and the fact you are in New Mexico, this was a fine park. No grass, of course. Few trees. Large pull throughs so you did not have to unhook if you were just staying one night. We stayed here three nights due to NASCAR being Sunday. Nice enclosed pool. Cable was good and WiFi fast & free. Would definitely stay here again. Don't forget to visit the winery. We stayed here in a Bighorn fifth wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice gravel RV Park with all large pull through lots. It is in town, but not close enough to the restaurants to walk to them. The manager was very nice and helpful and the park was quiet. Quite a few permanents here but they seem to be friendly. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV park has no charming features. It is OK for an overnight stop. Site #32 is next to a messy, wind-chimed site. Everything gravel and dusty. Cable TV was so-so, no digital channels, Wi-Fi was good. Staff at front desk was friendly and helpful. Local golf course is inexpensive, and you get what you pay for! We will probably not return. We only came here because it is a Good Sam park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed one night. Located in a row of RV parks along the main drag at the edge of town and was surprisingly quiet. Very helpful staff called to find me a mechanic in town. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is a typical snowbird park. Lots of long term campers with a few overnighters coming in. Just a gravel parking lot with hook ups. Big enough though for our big rig. Just a stopping off place for us. Did not even check out the bath house or the laundry. Verizon aircard worked well. We would stay here again if passing through the area as many of the parks look exactly like this one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park, but it is a typical southwest desert park: i.e. gravel sites, no shade, windy, dusty. My pull through site was plenty long and wide, with no picnic table. Staff was friendly and efficient. Very nice indoor pool, and club house. Lots of activities if a long term stay. Had excellent cable TV reception as well as free Wi-Fi. Town is small and friendly with one foot in the grave. A winery close and worth a visit. Stayed here in February and the nights are cold. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very happy to stay for (the third time) at this RV park. The park is very well maintained. The owners make you feel welcomed. This is a park that we will visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 months on our way to the warm south. Hook ups were good. Indoor pool and hot tub was great. Lots of activities. Overall a really nice place to stay overnight or extended stay. October was very pleasant. November was very cold at night. Sometimes in the teens. Small town and everyone was very friendly. Price reflects monthly rate ($275) plus electric. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate Good Sam discount. Friendly staff in office. Site gravel with little privacy between sites. No table at our site, but noticed next door had one. Cable TV channels fuzzy. Wi-Fi worked okay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are staying for a couple of months at $275+electric: good location. We moved from Silver City (colder and 53 miles away) to Hwy I-10. Camped near office in B section away from trains and I-10 with a nice shade tree. Recommend Deming area over Silver City; gas is up to 20cents more a gallon and there is very little to do there. Visited Paloma across border and was advised by Sheriffs deputy not to cross with all the killings in the border towns. Gave 8 stars because of the gravel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This a clean, no frills park with dirt/gravel pull-throughs which are level. Electric and water are good, and the park is great for a couple of days stay. We find this park nicer than the other parks next to it. The price reflects the Good Sam rate. Easy access to I-10 whichever direction you're traveling. Not much to Deming although they have a great Winery nearby (St. Clairs) and is only about 30 miles to Palomas, Mexico. Don't forget your passports if you decide to go there. We will definitely stay again when passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It certainly isn't what it looks like on their web site! It's OK for an overnight stop, but not much more. Good Wi-Fi and cable and the pool and spa area looked OK, but weren't used. The campground is nothing more than a dirt field covered with gravel and surrounded with permanent modular homes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We by-passed a park we usually stay in Las Cruces because of the inflated charge, and found this one. From the friendly staff to the clean site and then a great WiFi connection. We were only here one night as we were traveling, but will make this a stop when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are just staying over night, it is Okay. It has easy access to the interstate. Gravel, dust: there is nothing that sets this place apart from others. In fact the residents tend to park their cars in the streets, therefore when leaving in the morning, you either need to let your neighbor or people across from you know, or be resigned to waking them up to move their car. There appeared to be some full time or long time residents. We did the latter, and he was grumpy, (not at 7 am but at 9am.) Our neighbor next to us was very pleasant though. We stayed on our way to Tucson. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one large dirt and gravel lot with sites well spaced out. The positives: plenty of room for slides, level, good free Wi-Fi and good cable TV. Downside items: dirt roads with some dust, freeway noise in the back where we were and trains just beyond the freeway so also some train noise. The noise level was not bad but was there. While we were there the hot tub and pool both had issues and were out of order for most of the visit. Staff was helpful, the park was clean and workers were doing upkeep and maintenance. This park is typical for the SW and I give it a 7 only because of the Wi-Fi and cable TV, both of which were excellent. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a nice park, easy in, easy out. It is close to I-10 and railroads but noise not too bad. It has all gravel and dirt roads. The staff is helpful. There is good cable and wifi. The spaces were adequate, and hookups ok. We stayed one night and would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A large gravel/dirt lot with hook-ups with occasional tree. Small indoor pool and hot tub in cement building. Excellent fast free Wi-Fi and decent cable free. Clean large laundry ($l.00 each for w/d) with new machines. Friendly management and daily activity. Monthly rate is $275 + electricity (currently about 12 cents/kwh) or $22/day + electricity. A very quiet older town, new Wal-Mart within walking distance as is library and cinema complex. A few things of interest to see locally. Winter climate is moderate, but winds can be strong and it can be in 20's at night. Off I-10 but quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in this campground because of previous reviews and the fact that they had cable and wireless internet. Both were excellent. The cable was clear with over 50 channels and the Wi-Fi was very responsive. The sites are level and will accommodate larger units and most are pull-throughs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is easily accessible from the interstate and is close to most shopping and restaurants. We ended up staying 4 days longer than we had expected due to the central location for many of the sites and activities in the area. Would recommend the park for overnight or extended stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place for overnight. Easy pull thrus. All gravel, but no problem even though it had rained the day before and there were puddles here and there. Would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It features large spaces and quiet park. We stayed in the back of the park where they put over night campers. The rest of the park has trees. We would stay here again for an extended time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A solid spot to overnight in Deming. CATV and Wi-Fi work fine. Road noise and railroad noise minimal relative to other parks in the area. Would definitely stop here again when rolling through on I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV campground: very friendly, extremely clean laundry and bathrooms (with music in both). The community center is very nice with pool tables, hi-speed internet (even though they have Wi-Fi), TV, and book exchange. I would stay here again should we ever make it back to Deming. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 10 / 10 ]
A very nice park. It's clean with long level pull-through sites. Had very good TV and Wi-Fi plus a big book exchange. Park is close to K Mart and Wal-Mart. A very friendly lady in the office. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Still a good choice for an overnight stay in Deming. We have used it for that purpose numerous times over the last 5 years. Only complaint this time was I couldn't get the WiFi to connect and the staff at the office had no idea of how or what to do to help any. Good easy pull throughs for an overnight stay in Deming. If you have a chance check out Si Senor Mexican food restaurant. For basic fair it is the cleanest Mexican restaurant with the lowest prices I have seen. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a good place to stop while passing through Deming. The park has everything we needed for the night but we would not consider staying here for any period of time. We were placed in the back of the park with few trees in a large gravel area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Big wide streets, long wide pull-through sites and clean restrooms. Pool is OK if you like indoors. Bathrooms are spotless. A little train noise but other wise a great place to stay when visiting City of Rocks, Silver City and Rock Hound State Park. Also, close to shopping in Palomas, Mexico. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good place for overnight stays. The sites are gravel and fairly level. Good WIFI reception and the cable TV had good channel selection and reception. The rest rooms and showers were clean. It is far enough from the interstate that road noise is not a problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I gave this place a poor rating because of several reasons. First, the people were rude, short with us on the phone and in person, and unhelpful. Also, I am choosing places to stay based on internet availability, as we travel across the country- that is how I am updating family and friends as to our whereabouts, and how I am paying bills, and keeping up with my life. So, when we talked on the phone and they asked if we wanted the access code for the internet, of course I said "yes, PLEASE!". we arrived after the office was closed, but they had included the code with the map. no mention was made that an Apple would not work with the code, but we could NOT get on with the code. fortunately there was ethernet in the clubhouse. however at 9pm, someone came and said "Time to go!" not "I'm sorry, we are closing at 9" or anything polite... just "time to go!" and... she even questioned whether or not I belonged in the park!!! Also, the dog walk area is a very small area along the chain link fence, all gravel. The entire place is gravel! Trees almost non-existent. Very noisy when people are walking, starting at 5:30 in the morning. Didn't get any sleep after that. And... there is noisy all night from the trains and the street traffic. So... no, would not stay here again, ever. Would not recommend. Would not even recommend this town. Would probably have stayed in Las Cruces, as I had first planned, had I known. especially at this overpriced rate for what we got! one good thing. the showers were clean, fiberglass insert, private. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground, super wide roadways, large level pull thru gravel sites. Wi-fi worked very well, and the laundry was very clean and the machines worked great. It had an indoor swimming pool but didn't get to use it but it looked clean and well maintained. Nice folks at the office. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent campground. Sites are all level, Wi-Fi works very well. The staff was very efficient and friendly. We only stayed one night. The ease of parking and pulling out was most appreciated. We didn't even have to unhook the tow vehicle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A well run park in a good location to goods and services. Wi-Fi was iffy sometimes but a good place to stay. Reasonable monthly price, convenient facility to get propane. Good facility, activities, and friendly helpful staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff but sites are tight, just gravel and some are missing picnic tables. WI-FI is weak and was not always available. Park is situated in the eastern part of Deming near the railroad tracks which can get noisy. Shopping mall and other shops just down the road and you are close to interstate. It has a indoor pool and has many weekly events. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Amenities are very clean and nice. Sites could be better as they're just like a graveled parking lot, but the price is more than fair. The cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well. The pool is very nice. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Basically this is a large gravel parking lot with hookup posts. Easy-in/easy-out and the staff is friendly. The park is very quiet. We think it is good for an overnight stay but wouldn't want to stay there for more than a day or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Deming, NM is a quaint little (tiny) town where Little Vineyard RV Park is located on Business I-10. This park was busy (in and outs) and a bit noisy, but nice. All sites here are loose gravel, not much shade, but I did manage to find a site with a tree affording me shade in late afternoon. The laundry facilities are nice and clean and inexpensive, only $1.00 per load to wash and dry. They advertise free WiFi, but I was only able to connect one time. It didn't work 99% of the time. CATV worked perfectly! Staff was very friendly. Rates are reasonable. Using my Good Sam discount I paid $22.25 for one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical western campground with no trees. Lots of amenities. Had Passport America. The WiFi was free, but it was very windy (35-40 mph) and we could not get it most of the times as tower was shaking. People very nice. We stayed several days as we had been boondocking for a while. Don't miss the free musesum downtown. See the Gila Cliffdwellers national park fairly close by. Highways were shut down several hours due to a dust storm. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled in here for just a one night stay and were very pleased with the Lady at the front desk, Polite and very helpful. We came to our appointed site and pulled in and were able to stay hooked up and had all the services. Gravel lot but clean and neat. We would recommend this park to our friends. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I prorated and rounded up the cost based on our month-long stay. We found the staff friendly, the pool and spa clean, the entertainment good, our neighbors friendly, and the price reasonable. True, this is a huge gravel parking lot, but we had plenty of elbow room and found this an excellent location for our sightseeing. We had no problems with WiFi. It was pretty cold at night while we were here and there were some very windy day. We filled our propane tanks weekly and thankfully, the rate was very, very reasonable. I do wish there was more nice desert landscaping, but we would definitely choose this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Just like all the other Deming campgrounds, this is a gravel parking lot with services. It is really nothing special, but then neither are any of the others. This park has a good weekly rate, but the electricity is metered even for weekly service. The rate is 10 cents per kilowatt-hour. They also charge a 5% service fee on credit cards. The WiFi service is free, but not very good. Several of the nearby wireless access points are on the exact same channel (including both at this park) causing interference with each other. It would be a simple matter to select an unused channel to make the system much more usable. Are you listening, campground owner? We probably would not stay here again. Try one of the excellent New Mexico State Parks not very far away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 3 days, clean, friendly staff, close to everything, all the parks in Deming pretty much the same. Nice vineyard about 4 miles east of town, good wines. Visit Silver City while you're there. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is basically just a extremely large parking lot with gravel. While the sites are very level and the hookups were fine, the secured WiFi access was very poor. While we were there the advertised indoor pool and hot tub were closed for renovation. I got the feeling they were closed for a very long time. Access off of I-10 was very simple and there are plenty of places to get a bit to eat along the main road. We wouldn't stay here again unless we had to stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A good stop-over park for folks traveling along I-10. The pull-thru sites were long, level, and easy to set up. No real attractions, but a quiet place to rest for the night. Clean bathrooms and showers were a plus. We would definitely stay again if we're traveling along this route. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here two nights and it was okay for my needs. The staff was friendly and responsive to my needs. The big drawback is it is simply acres of gravel with sites marked off. However, this seems to be the norm for campgrounds in Deming. It was handy to cafes and WalMart and is only 30 miles from Mexico for a day jaunt. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we called to reserve a space, they said that WIFI was available. After checking in we find that it has been down for several weeks. The campground host didn't care that it was down and would not do anything to resolve the issue. We called the owners and they did not care that it was down and had no idea when it would be up. Campground facilities ar ok, if you want WIFI or customer service it would be wise to look someplace else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was friendly and helpful. The sites are mostly gravel with some dispersed trees. Restrooms were clean. Sites seemed larger for back row 50 amp sites. This is one of nicest parks in Deming. We have used this park in past and will continue to when we travel through this part of I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped there for three days. Glad I had a place to go and things to do. The staff was not very helpful with information, but they did have a good handout. would probably stay with them again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pulled in after dark. Filled out paperwork. Chose our spot. Other rvers friendly and helpful. Hot showers. Left early next morning. No problem. Put money in envelope in drop box at office. Easy drive to Palomas Mexico the next day from here. So our not planned stop worked out perfectly for us. We'll definitely stay again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is overly rated by Trailer Life. They advertise WiFi. We were there two times. Jan.'06 and Feb.'06. We commented to them that their WiFi did not work. The lady at the front desk did not care. She was uninterested in a quests comments. Very rude service. Again, their rating is way too high. The park is very bland. We had to stay there because the rest of the campgrounds are even worse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground now has free WiFi; however, you need to be close to the Rec Center to be able to pick it up. (50 amp sites are NOT near the Rec Center.) No shade and not much landscaping, but a very good spot for overnight camping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park run by good folks. Only realy glaring issues are the lack of shade trees and no wifi. Only surprise was that electricity is metered and you pay for it in addition to the site rental, but the rates are reasonable for both. Indoor pool and hot tub are not to be missed. Will be returning this summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a regular stop on our winter trip to Arizona. It is a very nice park, especially the indoor heated pool. The park is all gravel, very little grass. It has good gravel roads & level gravel pull thru sites. It is easy for a big rig to get around. There are some seasonals and maybe a few permanent residents. Their sites were neat & clean. The park is well maintained. We will be staying there the next time we travel thru Deming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice place to stay. Very clean, orderly, and friendly. Lots of long-term friendly RVers. We'll stay here any time we can. It's a Loners on Wheels campground but they like couples, too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly staff and fellow RVers. They had a rally during my stay with dancing twice a week, a weekly luncheon into Mexico, and lots of other activities. The rate is for weekly members. I would go out of my way to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this park and have stayed here previously. It is for "loners on wheels" meaning singles, but they take everyone and it is not a singles only park. The entire park is gravel, very neat and quiet, everyone is very friendly, and it is kept up very well. Price was $17+ and reflects Passport America rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This nice quiet park has good utilities, including good wi-fi. Interior roads and sites are level gravel and easy to maneuver. Desert garden areas, a very good library and excellent restroom/shower areas add a lot of value to the park. AT&T phone and data worked well. Staff and residents are friendly and welcoming. The rate reflects a Passport America discount. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is PPA. Called to see if site was available and was told to pull in, go to site #xx, and then fill out paperwork on porch in front of office and leave it. It was late and all went smoothly except...no electric. When 30 amp didn't work, tried 20 amp. Then had a thought, replugged to 30 amp AND also threw the 100 amp breaker. That seemed to turn on power. Some sort of safety device? But we had the power. Later went to take shower and found large "family" bathroom with large walk in shower. They had spray bottle and asked users to spray down after shower, so very clean and nice. This was only a night stop, but the few regulars we met were all very welcoming and friendly. Sites are level, away from noise, and stars were beautiful. Maybe not a destination for us, but certainly a place we would stop again. Very pleased to see they had recycle bins for most items. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Being a couple of miles from downtown, this RV park was nice and quiet. No planes, trains, or automobile noise. Easy in and out, with large, level spaces. As mentioned, you don't have to be a member to stay here. WI-FI was so-so. Both Verizon and AT&T had signal. Rate paid is Passport America. We'll stay here again next time we come through town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park takes Passport America. It is about 6 miles south of I-10 but well worth the short drive. They have desert gardens at the end of most parking rows that are quite beautiful and unusual. Hope to stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects a Passport America discount. A little off the beaten path for a one night stop but it's worth it for the peace and quiet. Also, they don't have a gazillion lights to disturb your sleep. Parking is mostly side-by-side on gravel (the whole park is gravel), good 50-amp electric and so-so water pressure. This park is owned by Loners On Wheels. We will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is probably the best park in the area. It was quiet and clean. The sites are well spaced and marked. This park is a "Loners on Wheels" park and we were hesitant at first to come here (as we are married) but the other reviews were favorable so we chanced it. Nothing was said about not being single and we were welcomed. The man in the office was slow but nice. There is a small 'bark park' but I was given permission to play ball with my dog in the area adjacent to it. The wind blows and blows here. The nightly rate is very high in my opinion although it reflects a Good Sam 10% discount. We just overnighted here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a clean gravel park. Sites were level. Nice space between sites, which were all pull-throughs. We spent one night in route to Arizona. The location is 4 miles off the interstate and away from the railroad tracks which is a common complaint of other parks in Deming. Would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Less than 5 miles from I-10 in Deming, NM. There is very little shade. Bathrooms are very clean. Easy entry and exit with our 39 ft motorhome. Sites are level, and with good gravel coverage which keeps dust down in this arid, and often windy environment. Rate with Passport America is $16 / night + tax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a pleasant surprise compared to others in Deming we have stayed at. Clean, large, and level gravel sites. Excellent antenna TV reception. Wi-fi was very good. Office staff was pleasant and stayed a little late to wait for our arrival. Definitely a good overnight stopover. South of town about 4 miles. Rate was for Passport America. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Thought it a bit pricey in comparison with other facilities we've stopped at. It is a club type association "loners on wheels". The site given was level, with good utilities, albeit somewhat tight with a neighbor to one side. Because of the cost, we won't be choosing this campground again - there are others in the area more spacious for less money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night on our way through, and enjoyed the easy access, good WiFi, and clean bath facilities. This is a simple, flat, gravel patch that does a very good job of providing easy accommodations for a short stay. Although we were not here long enough to interact with them, many signs suggest that there is probably also a vibrant community of long-termers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here a few days to check-out the area. Check-in was very easy and friendly. The entrance is easy and plenty of parking. The sites are a little tight but very level. The hookups are properly placed and all worked well. All roads are dirt so expect dust. There is no cable, but we received several stations using our antenna. They have a one-time charge of $2 for Wi-Fi, but we had an excellent connection. We liked that the dog rules are enforced. The park is quiet, clean and well kept. Shopping is about a 3 mile trip. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
LoW-Hi is the home base for Loners on Wheels and is a very friendly RV park. We had great reception with our Verizon data and phone and did not opt for W-iFi. We used our TV antenna to get 12 very clear stations. We stayed for 5 days and on our first day we joined the weekly potluck and made many new friends. The sites are level and the area is very quiet. The bunkhouse is used as a exchange library, puzzle room, DVD and VCR tape exchange. The laundry is based on the honor system:use the washers and dryers and pay at the office later. There is also a table of used clothing for those who need some nice, clean clothes. Every Wednesday a group go to Palomas, Mexico for a day for shopping, lunch with free margaritas,and medical services or drug purchases at reduced Mexican rates. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Deming. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$14.50 was W&E, Passport America. We had neither TV nor a computer. Nice clean, friendly park. When we returned in November there was a L.O.W. event and they were full, so we had to go down the road. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is well removed from the highway and train tracks, making it a quiet destination for sleeping. Our site was level and pretty good size. The restrooms were clean and the park was tidy. I was annoyed, however, that we paid $2.00 extra for WiFi, only to find that it didn't work at our site. The signal was so slow that I couldn't even send out an e-mail message. And the connection kept fading out. Very frustrating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a really nice park. We were able to use our Passport America here, so the rate was only $15 a night, plus a "service charge" for the internet making our nightly fee $16.75. While it is designated as a "singles/loners" RV park we were welcomed and were comfortable here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a comfortable basic RV park with an interesting LOW history. The place has a comfortable, easy going nature and someone has taken the time to plant several cactus gardens which are interesting. This is on our "return to" list of parks. Might be fun to stay here for a week or so and use as a base camp to explore this end of New Mexico. We camped here in a Motorhome.
LoW-Hi RV Ranch is a nice, quiet RV park located 4 miles south of I-10. My husband and I stayed there two different times in a 2 week period. Everything was clean and in good condition. The sites are fairly narrow but are flat and graveled with some trees. There were quail and roadrunners outside our door. The location has great view of the Florida Mountains and is quiet. All the other RV parks we saw were right on the main road which is parallel to the highway. The $16 fee reflects the Passport Club price; normally it would have been $30. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice people at check-in although kind of slow. Unless you have something to do in this area it's way off the freeway. But for the rate it was worth the drive. The sites are decent and wide with utilities convenient for hook up. This was a good stop for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely park. Very clean and quiet. Fun Bark Park for the dog. Note: before you make the turn off the main road to O'Kelley, note the gas station on your left. It's prices were .30 less than closer to the highway. But if you leave the park the way they suggest (turning left out of the park) you'll miss that station. But if you don't need gas, their suggested route will take you further east on 10, which you might prefer. (We paid the Passport America rate.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is off the beaten path but a good site for an overnight stop. The park is all gravel with big rig friendly pull thrus. The park is very clean and well lit. The office was closed upon our arrival but the self check-in was a breeze. The park had a very nice walking path around the outer rim. The laundry room was very clean ($1.50 washer/dryer) and my wife fell over backwards because they had a clothes line behind the laundry room. She washed and hung the sheets out to dry. We had 4 or 5 TV channels using the antenna and our AT&T air card worked well. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A "Loners on Wheels" campground and a good PA stopover site. An interesting park and the owner have done a lot to make it as nice as possible with walking paths, gardens, dog park, and nice bath/shower facility. Very friendly people in a quiet location. Trees are small. Gravel pads, but well groomed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate denotes P.A. discount. We stayed for 1 night on our way to AZ. Nice, friendly staff making check-in easy. It's off the beaten path so very quiet. We would stay here again, but wouldn't pay the $2.00 for the internet, which was very slow, but may have been because of where we were located. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park south of town. A bit far for exploring the area, but for the price well worth the drive. Great Verizon cell/data service. Must go see the Pancho Villa SP 25 miles south in Columbus, very, very interesting and informative!!!! Staff was great at check in, but saw that they have a lot of work campers and some are not as informative as others. We will stay here again. Price reflects PA discount. Very clean park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stopped here for one night on our way to the RGV. The sites were large, easy pull through, and well kept. Deming was a nice town to visit. We will return. We stayed on Passport America $16.50. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects monthly membership rate of $170 per month. Nice park and good folks. I attended the Oktoberfest Rally this year and had a great time. Happy to be a member. Will probably spend some time here again in the spring on my way back from the Slabs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly, helpful staff. Really enjoyable social atmosphere with group coffee in the morning and happy hour in the afternoon in the 'Bunkhouse'. Very handy to a few local attractions but need to travel quite a way to the City of Rocks and Gila Cliff Dwellings. Wide, level, gravel sites. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a pleasant park with great people. Don't waste your time out near the freeway. Take a little effort and try this park. You won't regret it. Nice little garden bench for reading or soaking up the views. Exceptionally clean bathrooms and showers. Spacious sites. No problem with cell phone signal and computer connectivity. Our nightly rate was $16 using Passport America. They treat PA folks very well! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were here off season with Passport America. Very nice people and nice desert gardens. It is a little out of the way but close enough to town for Wal-Mart and dining out. We were disappointed that they had canceled Wi-Fi and no cable or pool. Sites were gravel but large and level. They are a meeting site for LOW "loners on wheels". Nice park for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We using our Passport membership. The sites are large with 50 amp on gravel. We've stayed in 3 other places in Deming and this is the one we will return to. It is 4 miles from town but worth the short drive. Our Verizon cell phone worked well and our satellite TV worked well too. Would be nice to have WI-FI. Well kept park with friendly personnel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in this park for one night. It's well maintained with nice sized pull-through gravel sites. Water/electric/sewer were all acceptable - 50 amp electric was provided free! That's one to take note of! Verizon cell phone and wireless air-card Internet reception was acceptable. My wife and I will stay at this park again in the future. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice quiet and clean park for over night stay. Really needs cable TV and Wi-Fi to meets today's standards. As with all smaller parks there are a few permanent residents but they were all nice people. Would consider staying here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a classic example of an off the beaten path park, that management has attended to all the details. It is a nice, clean, well kept park, with very friendly staff. We were traveling through, and only needed an overnight spot. At the passport rate, this park is truly a bargain, and we would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park away from town and the interstate. All gravel spots with small trees. Staff was helpful. There are several nights with activities in the club house. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport America rate plus tax. Good paved road to park about 4 miles from Deming. Park was clean and well maintained. Long gravel sites were long enough to park tow car in back or side of motorhome. Quiet surrounding. 50 amp electricity was stable with full hookups at site. Office staff were pleasant and knowledgeable about surrounding areas. Nice park to pass through or stay for awhile. Be sure and see the museum in Deming. I will stay here each time I come through Deming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground now has 50amp service at all sites. I understand they have recently updated the sewar system to include all sights. I found it very clean and the staff was very helpful and knowledgable about the surrounding area. Very quiet, no traffic or railroad noise. There is a nice pet park, a room for book exchange, puzzles, tv and playing cards. I would stay here again. Passport America rates are very good at 50% off. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Only there for an overnight. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Do not leave them on the side of the grassy areas, in the back of your space, or even in the designated “Dog Walk” area. It is disgusting to come upon another dog’s “business” while walking my dog. The park has a leash regulation - use one on your dog at all times. Remember if we break the rules, parks will begin to deny pets as guests. Thanks! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a Loners on Wheels park and also member of Passport America. It is very nice & clean park, away from highways & rail roads. It is not a resort but has all you need for overnight or longer stays. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is ok but avoid if they have had rain. Gravel, as they call it, sites. Very thin gravel and when it rains it becomes very very muddy fast. This is a loners park, one that is for singles traveling. Good price for Passport America but would try a different park if staying in the area again. They had a make shift sewer dump, very make shift. If you come in on Passport bet your getting a non sewer site, even though other sites will be open during your stay. Kind of cheap to have an ante up can in the bath for cleaning supplies if you ask me! Stayed 4 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America park. Didn't love this park,but didn't hate it. Large, level, open gravel parking area broken up by utility poles with plenty of room between rigs; easy access for our 30 ft class A. Electric was metered and signs in the bathroom/showers suggested additional $$ donation for the shower and cleaning supplies. The two showers available to serve the park seemed to be busy nearly all the time. Large laundry room also busy. Park was clean and there were numerous planned activities for the LOW (Loners On Wheels) group. We very much enjoyed day trips to Silver City and City of Rocks State Park as well as lunch at Caliche's (hot dogs and ice cream custard) while in the area. Not far from the Mexico border and the city of Palomas. For the Passport America price it is a very good deal but since there are several RV parks in Deming we might check out another one before returning to the LOW Hi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one for the favorites list. One of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed at. Fairly small and well landscaped. Sites are pretty level but not perfect. Good spacing between sites. Bathrooms look brand new and unbelievably clean. Each site has its own trash can which is really convenient. It's perched up on a hill with great mountain and valley views. This will be a regular stop for us on I-10 We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great small park on a hillside overlooking Deming. Gravel sites with covered picnic tables at each site. Many hiking trails in the area. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a special deal for just $14 with electric. The terraced placement of campsites at the base of these desert mountains gives a very nice view of both the mountains and the plains below. Our antenna worked well to receive local TV. We were cautioned to beware of rattlesnakes, but did not see any. We did see bunnies and hummingbirds. No 50 amp but 30 amp was good. Water pressure was on the low side. Sunset was awesome! We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Despite being built on a hillside, the sites are easier to level than it appears at first glance. At night, there was a beautiful view of the lights of Deming. The campground itself was so dark that the city lights really pop out. There is a good visitor center with cactus garden and lots of trails to hike. AT&T data service was lousy. All in all, an excellent bargain and enjoyable stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are level, gravel, with picnic table covered. Situated at base of majestic mountains with trails and rocks to be collected. Windy at night, but that's expected. Great views from site of valley below. While here, a MUST see is Adobe Deli http://adobedeli.com/..a hidden gem of a spot, off the beaten track with great food and eclectic decor. Rockhound is a quiet campground, terraced sites and a great stopover enroute to Silver City area. Stop at Visitor Center for local info and be sure to enjoy the stone labyrinth and desert garden area. Rate reflects the NM access pass, so only $4 for electric. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was recommended to us by another couple who we had met on the road and have kept in touch with. They called us and told us that we just had to come to the Rockhound State Park. Most of the sites are on a first come basis, but there are a few that are reservable. We were certainly not disappointed! This place is magic. In the middle of the New Mexico desert sitting up on a plateau overlooking the valley and the township of Deming in the distance - beautiful at night! The sunsets are magnificent! The sites are huge all with a rubbish bin that is emptied each couple of days. Each site has a covered picnic table and seats on a concrete slab, a fire pit and a grill. There are plenty of walking trails; we did the Lovers Leap trail at Spring Canyon. The sign post says it is .5 of a mile. They lied! It is much farther than that but certainly worth the climb. Just make sure you take water with you as it is quite a distance! And, as this park is in the center of rockhound country; you are actually allowed to take up to 15 lbs of rock from the State Park with you when you leave! Great for rock enthusiasts and those just wanting a peaceful, easy to get to location! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here twice going to and from Tucson. First time we didn't have a reservation and got assigned a spot in overflow. We had water and electricity, but they squeezed 4 big rigs into 3 spaces and we used a "Y" to share water. No awnings. Next time we had a reservation and had a huge site. All the the sites are large, gravel, fairly level, and terraced on the base of a mountain. The views are almost always good. Restrooms were OK, but not immaculate. Just OK. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price was great! I think all sites have a shade structure, table and fire ring but no Wi-Fi. Only 5 sites can be reserved, so get here early if you don't have a reservation. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We used this state park for a overnight. It turned out to be about 15 miles off the interstate, but was worth the drive. We didn't have reservations and was placed in one of the four overflow sites. The sites still had water/electrical hookups, but was gravel. The park sits at the base of a local mountain range known for the rocks (hence the name) and the sunsets are beautiful. Would return, but only during the spring months as it would get hot here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this park...6 miles on so-so road but worth it. Sites are large and well tended. Views are beautiful looking back over the valley. Signage is good to find the place and the price was especially nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park and try to stay at it whenever we are passing through. It has beautiful views of the desert, big sites, and great places to hike. If you are a rock hound you can actually take up to 45 pounds of rocks home with you. I'm not a rock hound so can't say much about it, but evidently there are many different kinds of rock that people want. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is the most peaceful and calm I have ever stayed in. We made reservations on-line in advance to assure space. We found no ranger station in which to check in - only a drop box for those entering the park after hours. We located a volunteer park host who met us at the entrance and kindly guided us to our reserved site. The sites are spread out and you are not on top of your neighbors. I noted mostly adults in this park, a few kids. Rock hunting was fantastic fun and we found many varieties of things. The hiking is hot and straight uphill. If you are rock hounding, make sure you pack plenty of water, snacks, and tools. We chose to come when it was spring due to heat. I think if you go in the summer, it would be extremely hot and you would be exposed as there are few wind breaks. The bathrooms were clean and were just fine for showering. There was no playground we could find and if you have kids, you need to instruct them on the cactus, yucca, and other things that can stick, poke, or bite them. Also, amazing star gazing at night so bring a star map or something to view constellations. Overall, we hope to come here again for a longer stay. It was a really cheap, quiet, and well kept. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great state park. We had a similar experience in having to camp in a group site since the park was full, but we had electricity and water and it was quiet at night. Great camp host. Fun to hike the trails for the views and more fun going off the trail to look for rocks. Also, we drove over to Spring Canyon for the Lover's Leap trail. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice park away from the main roads. Right against the mountains with trails for rock collecting. You are allowed 15 pounds of rock per day to take away. Beautiful view out over the valley below. Another popular state park where reservations are suggested. We got the last spot in the group area w/ water and 30 amp power. People coming in behind us had only dry camping available. Excellent assistance from park host finding a spot and getting situated. Neighbors had difficulty with electricity and maintenance was there and checking out the problem in just a few minutes. A very nice spot to spend a day, a week or a month. We will stop here again when we're in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great find in the middle of the desert not far from I-10. We arrived at 2 pm but still camped in the over flow which did have water and electricity. Others parked in the over flow got sites in the morning but I would make reservations. At the foot of the mountain with great short hikes and rock hounding in the area. About half the sites have hook ups. All have concrete pads with picnic shelter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great place to stay! Quiet and beautiful. A few miles from the interstate, well worth the drive. One of favorite state parks and we have stayed in state parks all over the country. Great price and lots of places to walk and just enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the "over-view" of Deming. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
New Mexico has excellent parks! This one is way off the beaten path, but beautiful views make it worth while. The park is terraced into a hill with a spectacular view from every site. Pull through site was long enough for the largest RV, but it wasn't level so we had to unhook anyway. For the price, it was a bargain. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had planned to stay one night, but after arriving, and seeing the wonderful vista, we stayed three nights. Would have stayed longer if possible. Nestled beside the mountains, the campground is raised and has a beautiful view of the lights of Deming at night. The sites are beautifully landscaped, and there are different size sites, to suit your needs. The visitor center is a must see, and offers insight into some of the rocks you may find if you are a rock hound. There is a Desert Botanical Garden, and a Native Plant Garden. The showers and bathrooms were clean. Hook-ups, w/e, worked fine. We had some high wind, but only after the perfect first day. There are two geocache located in the park. We found one, but were unable to find the other. This is a wonderful park and you should plan to stop here at least once. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this campground. The sites are HUGE, with great views of the mountains. The campground host met us at our site and brought us kindling for our fire without being asked. The bathrooms and shower were very clean. There is even a decent playground for kids. Add that to the rockhounding opportunities...this place is a gem! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The park is pretty well maintained. While restrooms are clean, they are old and small without any place to put down shampoo, soap dish, etc. except on the floor. The park is about 10 miles out of town - great for peace & quiet and views that just can't be beat but not so convenient if you want to eat out, see the sights. The park was full when we arrived, so they put us in the group site. It was wonderful until they shoehorned in 3 more RVs right next to us in the next few hours, one on top of the other. Also, the group site is a shortcut to hiking area so there was a lot of foot traffic under our windows. Is this over exuberance of hospitality or desire to bring in all possible revenue? We probably won't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a quiet and wonderful isolated campground that served as an excellent base camp for us. The terrace level campground has commanding views of the Florida Mountains, Deming, and distant ranges and peaks. The campground is on a southwest slope below a volcanic ridge. This past week when Deming had low temperatures in the teens it was 5 to 10 degrees warmer in the morning at the campground. The access roads are wide and there is a moderate incline to the upper sites. Our back-in site had a very level gravel pad. There are a few pull-throughs. There are 24 spacious sites with 30 amp electric and all but one could accommodate big rigs. During our stay there were three to five sites still available in the evening. The campground is below several cell phone towers and satellite TV is picked up without problems. The entrance road to the state park is paved. For some reason the access road of the campground loops were left unpaved. The one and only restroom is very small. We stayed here for six nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful views, great sunsets from every site. Large, fairly level gravel sites with water and power. Power was strong and clean, but at times the water pressure was low enough to require on board water pump support. We were here over Thanksgiving week and the park got close to full, but there were always no-hookup sites available. The bathroom/shower room (only 1 for the whole park) was unheated so we didn't use them. They looked as reported by another reviewer - clean but aging. We will definitely stop for another week when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Remote location out of town at the foot of a mountain. Gravel sites with nice views. Large back-in sites but narrow pull-throughs. I would not recommend this park for a large rig that needs a pull-through space. However highly recommended if you can back-in, you like peace and quiet and the beauty of the desert area. Its not for everyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice flat over sized site with covered picnic table area. Beautiful panoramic views. Trails leading to rock picking areas are ok if you are in fairly good shape. There are some resting points along the way. Be sure to take camera and a bag to collect the rocks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were met at campground entrance by a camp host who took us to a very nice site. Customer Service! Rangers, volunteers and camp hosts all very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly. Incredible views from spacious sites. While the showers are spotless and comfortably roomy, they are showing their age. And there are 3 toilets but only 1 shower. That was the only drawback to the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a spectacular place for an RV escape. Set up against the mountains east of Deming, the views were fantastic and sunset unequaled. Nice hiking trails around the park. Once again state parks have been among the best we've stayed in. Only shortcoming was the condition of the showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has fantastic views, was easy to find and was just far enough from civilization. Campground host was very helpful, obviously took pride in his work. Very impressed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great State Park nothing fancy but what a great sun set and so quiet that it hurts,if you are hunting for city life this is not your place. We will return every chance we get. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great state park with views of the sunset that will bring you back. Host was very helpful and moved us to a pull through site as we had a toad. Park is clean and well taken care of. The reason for the 9 score is the bathrooms could use a remodel, but that's all. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 8 days here and really enjoyed the park. The park is up a hillside with the sites terraced giving you incredible views, especially at night. The city lights of Deming, sunsets, and the mountain on the left silhouetted against the night sky… Beautiful!! Good cell, Aircard and Satellite reception (no trees). Water pressure wasn’t the best but it was ok. No problems with the electricity fluctuating. Very friendly camp hosts, with lots of good information. Sites were relatively level and big rig friendly. Gravel roads and sites with a shelter, fire ring and picnic table which is located on a cement pad. There is also a hiking trail and a trail that takes you through the cactus garden. There is a visitors center at the entrance to the park but we didn’t go in. Hubby says the bathrooms were very clean. This park does have a dump station which was very easy to get in. The only drawbacks were the thorns/burrs which were in the grass. You will need to keep a good eye on kitty or rover….and the flies, they were very aggressive. It may just be that time of the year for them. Grocery shopping in Deming at Peppers or Super Walmart. Propane is also available in town. We loved it here and will be back when in the area. Rate reflects our annual camping pass fee. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is one of our best experiences yet! First, I was very impressed by the New Mexico state online reservation system which gives you detailed, specific information on each site including the site dimensions and photos. Why can't "for profit" parks give this kind of service? We stayed in site #17 which was huge! Each site has a BBQ, fire pit, picnic table, concrete patio, and shade cover. The site was level and gravel. Hookups were new and worked fine. The restrooms were clean, modern, and basic state park facilities. Only comment would be the ADA compliant seat in the shower made it necessary to stand very close to the shower head. The views from the camp site were incredibly beautiful both day and night. The far away city lights and unbelievable stars were fantastic. We spent hours "rock hounding" around the park. Although it was very warm in August, we started early in the morning and collected some nice rocks. This is a special place which we would highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is in a nice location with lots of room to get any size rig in. With only 29 sites resevations are recomended. I gave it a lower rating because the rest rooms and showers were not very clean and had a torn shower curtain. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to stay during the spring or fall but the summers are too hot for me. The night we stayed we enjoyed a lecture of the night sky that was excellent. This park allows you to hunt for and take rock from the park. The first time we stayed the kids enjoyed collecting rocks of different types and we took them home and tumbled them. After the first time though the kids didn't want to do again. Novelty wore off after that. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park, though small, is lovely in many ways. It has the standard state park features, with a beautiful view of the area (the sites are up the hillside). The town of Deming is really quite interesting, especially a very substantial museum (free) about local history, and lots of Mexican restaurants. We were glad we stayed there and got to spend a day in town. It's quite convenient to I-10, although about 7-10 miles of country driving off the interstate. The sites are quite easy to back into, some are pull throughs. Giant rigs might not fit every site. We'd stay there again for sure. No phone hookups, but cell phone (Verizon) worked very well. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 9 / 10 ]
If you like Rock Hounding this is a place for you; quartz, jasper, agates, opal, etc. If you're not so inclined perhaps not a great stop over. Sites are level and deep with good separation. Each has a cabana for shade with picnic tables and fire rings. Some great trails to hike that also lead to rock hounding activities. We camped here in a camper.
This park is a gravel parking lot away from the interstate by 5 miles. Tried it because of the previous reviews. We made a 10 dollar donation and would have given more except the WiFi was as slow as dial up and kept timing out. Safe clean location. I took a point off because of the slow WiFi. There is no resort atmosphere, but I don't take points from my reviews because of amenities that I don't need not being available. The couple at the "office" were friendly. I am not sure I would come this far off the interstate again but you never know. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is about 4 miles south of town and very easy to find. Flat, gravel open area but wide and pull through spots. WiFi is good and all major TV stations with antenna were available. Friendly camp hosts and we were greeted as soon as we pulled in. Nice view of the mountains. Nothing fancy but a nice overnight spot and would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Big open area so easy to maneuver a large rig. Utilities worked well. Free Wi-Fi worked well at our site (39). Quiet. No dust blowing from gravel even in wind. Rec room, bathroom, showers new and very nice. No frills or activities, just a nice place to stop while passing through. Price is "donation". They say "what you want to give". I asked what the suggested donation was and gave them that. I would stay here again when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great campground for an over night or two. Far enough off the highway so no road or train traffic. Easy pull-throughs with lots of swing room (we pull with a toter - 62 ft coming in). Were able to stay connected for an early out next morning. Camp worker was very friendly helping us get setup (even though it was after 9pm when we pulled in). We had had truck trouble near Tucson and were running behind schedule. Called for site and when owner heard our problems he said we could make a "donation" for electric rather than charge us full price. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new park and is still a work in process. What is there is good. There are no trees. The entire park is gravel in the fashion common in the southwest. It is 545 O'Kelley Rd east of NM 11, south of town. We stayed overnight and would do so again. No train or road noise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an OK park. Almost all permanents are older and in a bit rough shape. Does have pull thrus with 30Amp FHU for $17/nt. Has free WiFi but dead slow. The park worked for us for the one night but will probably pay the extra $7-10 and try one of the other parks next door. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A converted old drive in theater. Free coffee every morning during the winter. Friendly staff but mostly permanent residents and snowbirds. Maintenance and upkeep are in need of attention but I would stay here again. You get what you pay for and I feel you get your moneys worth. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here January and into the first part of February, We had a better rate as we were a smaller unit and did not use much electricity. The owner is a very accommodating man and the manager is very welcoming. A TV room with coffee on and plenty of book trading for reading. Although the parking and roadways are a packed gravel it is a real clean place. Typical of New Mexico RV parks. Close to shopping and the local area is very a historical place to visit. We used this area for travel to Mexico. We would stay here again and strongly recommend it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a wonderful campground where you will find peace and quiet, without a lot of frills. Although there is not a lot of things found in many other parks, no pool, no scheduled activities, this campground is rated a 10 because everything they do have is meticulously maintained and spotlessly clean! The owners are there if you need anything, but never intrusive. The park is wide open, with huge pull through sites, all level gravel, and lots of shade trees at the sites. There is a laundry room, which operates on the honor system, with brand new washers and dryers, a fully equipped clubhouse with kitchen, book and movie exchange, a place for pets, if you have them, but most of all, what Temperate Zone has is that wonderful peace and tranquility you get being far from town and surrounded by desert vistas. This was our second stay here, the first time we came through we were only going to stay overnight and move on, but were forced to stay another two nights due to not feeling well. Then we decided to stay even longer because we found it so very relaxing, we ended up staying for two weeks!! If you enjoy getting away from it all, and don't need a pool to relax, Temperate Zone is definitely for you. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Took us awhile to find the campground and we almost gave up. Our GPS showed Perrin St. on the western side of NM180, which is a no entry service road. Go further north a few hundred yards and Perrin is on the eastern side. There is a sign for an RV campground (can't remember the name) but it doesn't say "Temperate Zone" because they have yet to renew the sign after a name change. Travel about 2 miles up a flat, gravel and bumpy road to reach the Temperate Zone. It is a large expanse of gravel - all sites level. The staff were very friendly. There is a fabulous DVD swap library, very clean laundry with brand new washers and driers (honor system) and spotlessly clean bathrooms (one each for male and female). We were surprised we had our electrical meter read and if we went over a certain amount you paid extra on a pro rata basis. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The posted rate reflects the Passport America discount which is good for two nights. A monthly stay is $125 + electricity ($100 deposit). This little campground is away from the train and freeway noise one deals with at most of the Deming RV parks. It is located 15 miles north of Deming itself, and there is a 1.8 mile very washboard-rutted gravel/dirt road leading to the park. First the good: All sites are pull through and shaded by mulberry trees in season. There is a lovely clubhouse with cable TV, pool table, kitchen area, laundry, book and DVD exchange, and the nicest shower/restroom combination we've ever encountered. The laundry room is an "honor" system. $1.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry. You pay when you leave. The surrounding countryside is very rural/ranch land, including cattle next door. If you have horses you are able to corral them here. Friendly and helpful owners. The stars at night are incredible. It is also very pet friendly. The bad: It gets very windy here, so bad that you aren't able to be outside your rig or the clubhouse for any amount of time. Gusts rocked our rig many, many times. Our internet access and cell phone service with AT&T was spotty to non-existent. That said, we'd probably return if we were in the area again; when, hopefully when it is less windy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This price reflects Passport America, good for 2 nights. Park is clean and well kept and right off Highway 180, 15 miles north of Deming. Turn right and go a short drive on a wide gravel road in good condition. Park is very pet friendly. Well behaved pets can be off leash with owner present. This is a country setting with cattle ranches around. A nice get away from I-10 and city stuff. We enjoyed driving the country roads and the City of Rocks State Park is close by. City of Rocks is a must see park of incredible rock formations. The owner of this park was extremely attentive and helpful. If you're on your way to Silver City, this is a good stopover. We used our Verizon air card for wi-fi. Cell phone worked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
