Super cool hike and 7 mile brisk walk up to one of the most historic places for earlier settlers in New Mexico Frenchy's cabin. 4 ecosystems on the hike, beautiful views and awesome wildlife. You... more »
Camped in a 35” motorhome. We are self-contained so cannot comment on restrooms/shower facilities. Site #2. Water and electric site – dump station on site. Love this Park, will return. Pros... more »
The campground is excellent. Bathroom and showers are great. With a cell booster we had great service. The park should be named Frenchies as he did all the Man-made rock walls around the area and up the mountains. Oliver lee was richer, so there you go. You're not too far from Alamogordo or White Sands when you stay here. I love the New Mexico State Parks.
This was probably our favorite campground on our 2-1/2 month trip around the western half of the USA. We regret we only stayed two nights. The sites were spacious and the facilities in good condition. Spectacular views.
