All three ratings categories are measured on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.Less than 1 percent of parks or campgrounds receive the coveted 10 / 10 / 10 rating, which indicates superior facilities that are well maintained, clean, well-appointed restrooms and a highly appealing appearance.Campgrounds are inspected annually by dedicated RVers like you.

One of the best parks we have used. First time was an overnight stop - park answered phone promptly and reserved a space in the pull through section. Reception staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming .We were given very clear and helpful instruction on how to proceed if we arrived after the office closed - reduced the stress for us !
On arrival extremely easy to pull into flat well landscaped pull through - clearly marked. Set up was easy , interior roads are all paved , parking spot was gravel. Excellent hookups . Park "helpers" came to help us park and oriented us to the facilities. Bathrooms - WONDERFUL - all parks should be like these , very well arranged and most areas of the park are only a short distance from a bathroom facility. Wifi was just being tweaked when we arrived - excellent system , strong signal, fast enough. The facilities include an indoor swimming pool , small but useable Pickleball court , BBQ areas and shaded sitting or dinning spots. The only reason we do not give it 5 stars for appeal is lack of scenic view !! Directly opposite park is hotel with bar / restaurant if you don't feel like cooking - we used park on return leg of our trip and the restaurant was a welcome alternative for a change. This park I have recommended to friends and if we are in the area again likely we would stay for a period of time.

We stayed for two nights in late September. The facility is first class, friendly staff. All sites are gravel. The indoor pool, hot tub facility is new and very nice. The overnight sites are a 100 yard walk from restrooms and all closer sites are long term residents.
We would stay here again.

We had planned to stay at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort one week. But the monthly rate was such a bargain that we committed for a month. We ended up almost three months from November through January. We have stayed in many parks from Alaska, Canada, Washington, Oregon, California, and Arizona. This is without doubt the best park we have stayed in.
I can’t say enough positive about the staff. They were extremely friendly and helpful. The park has wide paved roads, level gravel spaces. There are long pull-through spaces for folks just spending the night without unhooking. There three very reliable Wi-Fi routers. The indoor pool was my favorite feature. It was always WARM and clean. The restrooms and laundry were always spotless. The activities calendar is very full and well attended.
This is the most truly “Dog Friendly” park we have stayed in. They even have a fancy dog wash and several fenced off leash exercise areas.
We would recommend this park to any RV traveler looking for a well maintained, clean, friendly place to stay. It is only four miles off I-25, two hours south of Albuquerque. We will go out of our way to stay here anytime we are in New Mexico.

Happy campers from Bend Oregon
