  • A very pretty park southeast of Santa Fe that's on the smaller side.. It's not centrally located, but it's on a frontage road for I-25, so it's convenient. But not so close that it's noisy. There's a large patio in front of the office, and seating areas around the campground. Sites are roomy and bathrooms are small but clean. We would stay here again.
  • I mean, come on! How do you do the tourist thing in Roswell and NOT go here? Inexpensive small museum that is great for long-time alien buffs and for people who have no idea what to expect or have never heard of the incident. Great displays and articles about various close encounters, as well as fun glimpses into many pop culture items like movies and shows inspired by the alien phenomenon. Good gift shop also!
