We stayed at Monticello South. This is without a doubt, our favorite state park in New Mexico. Nice sized sites. We stayed closer to the lake, so only had 30 amp, but, no problems there, or with water hookups. The hosts at this campground, are very friendly, and keep each site immaculate. While the lake was very low, it made for a very quiet campground with few visitors. We stayed two nights, and were able to listen to the owls and the coyotes in the morning. Will always stay here, when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is the only campground with full hook up located IN the state park. Most sights seem to be taken up by permanent residents so reservations are suggested. There was one large rig site we had to back into, which wasn't the easiest. The woman who runs this campground is very friendly and helpful...even met us out on the road and directed us in since the signage to the sites is lacking. Mostly well kept and monitored with no noise issues. Most convenient to the Dam Site Marina where we rented a boat. No water access except by boat so unless you plan on boating it's not the campsite for you. I would stay here again, if planning to rent a boat otherwise not much else to do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camping area was dirty and some of the sites were permanent occupant and their campsites were not very well kept. Checked the area out for one night and moved on to another campground We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is located on the southeast side of the lake. Signs to the park are not very easy to follow, as you have to drive through the cabin area to get to the RV sites. The sites are unkempt and half of the sites are taken up by residents. Some of the RVs have been there for a number of years and are very unattractive. The center of the Park has a nice area for gathering, plenty of trees, and is the only area that allows campfires. They are not allowed at the individual campsites. Probably will not be returning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
