Edgington RV Park

Edgington RV park is 25 minutes to White Sands National Park. They are a smaller rv park located next to I70 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. We had someone meet us right away when we pulled, gave us all the information we needed about were are spot was, laundry, the dog run and all the other things you need to know. You do get quite a bit of traffic noise from the highway and their are trains you can hear occassianly. The entrance is a little tight to pull in, so just go slow. The sites in the back, however are nice, large pull through gravel spots and are full hookups. The way we postioned our trailer we were glad we had our                                        as we need to stretch it out pretty much the whole way. They have a small pond which they have wild ducks and chickens that roam around freely, so you cant walk your dogs over there but the rest of the park is free game. They gave us coupons for Pistachio Land just down the road! Definitly check it out if you have time, it's a really cute and a unique spot to visit. The laundry is $4 for wash and a dry spent with quarters. There are a few long term residents but they are all pretty quite. Their website and booking menu is easy to use and straightforward. I'd give this park a 8 out of 10. 

Bottomless Lakes State Park - Lea Lake

Bottomless Lakes State Park is a beautiful area and Lea Lake campground is nice to stay at if you are visiting Roswell, New Mexico! Its about 30 minutes to Roswell so its nice and secluded. We went in early November and it was pretty full. The lake seems to be popular in the summer to swin in! All the sites have electric and water and there are 5 or 6 back in sites with sewer hookups. There is a dump station you can use when you leave! They also have a a few tent sites if thats what your looking for! Most of the sites also have a covered picinic table and charcoal grill. There is also a restroom there but we did not use it. NOTE: The road RV Life Pro wants you to take doesnt really exist, it wants you to take a right and you'll cross a cattle guard, go down about a mile and then take a left but when we went that way, there was no road to take a left on. So we had to keep going down a ways and luckily we were able to pull off and back up on the main road and come back the way we came. Be careful to because that road goes down in the bottom and looks like it floods alot. Just continue on the main paved road it will take you right to the campground, DONT take any turns till you get to the campground!!! Overall, its a great campground and wish we could have stayed longer! 9 out of 10! We stayed in site 28 and the site was large enough for our trailer any longer you might need to get a different site! 

Sunset Reef Campground

Sunset Reef Campground is a primitive boondocking spot thats free! They have a maximum 5 night stay and just be aware there are no hookups! This spot is beautiful and far enough of the highway you cant really hear the traffic, but its only 10 minutes to Whites City and about 20 minutes to Carlsbad Caverns National Park! There were 6 large spots that will pull through and had a covered picnic table, fire pit, trash can and a charcol grill. There were also several tent camping spots all with the same amenties. There is one vault toilet. We were there 5 days and there were people pulling in and out the entire time at all times of day. It fills up quickly and many people park along the fence line.  Its down a dirt road which is great to walk dogs on! There were also cows that roamed around the area but since the campground is all fenced off and with a cattle guard they leave you alone. This is a really nice boondocking spot, with gorgeous sunrises and sunset, just try to get there early as it does get busy! I never got good pictures of the campground itself but its a great one to go to! 10 out of 10!

Sandoval County Fairgrounds

       This fairground is in the small town of Cuba, New Mexico. DO NOT follow google maps to get there as it wants you to take the back roads which either don't exist or are all gated off. We learned this the hard way and had to detour about 40 min till we could find a spot to turn around. There is a sign if your coming from the north, on the left side of the road. Its kinda hard to see but its there. You can either reserve a spot or show up and pay when you get there. There is a small box on one of the buildings you can put a check in. Follow the office signs and the building is going to be on your right. IF you show up late you will need to make sure to call and get a code to get in because they close the gate at night and if you leave early in the morning it has a sensor that will open the gate. We werent aware we needed a code or that the gate shuts at night. For us however the sensor didn't work so we almost werent able to get out, but luckily our neighbor was leaving so we followed them out.

        Personally I had a heck of a time getting ahold of them to reserve a spot or to even ask questions so keep that in mind. Its pretty quiet, you do get some road noise and there are some pull through spots that are pretty big and they have a couple back in sites as well, all are full hookup. BE AWARE there are a ton of grassburrs and stickers all over the place. Between unhooking and to get set up which was maybe 10 minutes, we had about 20 stuck in the bottom of our shoes. Oopsy got a bunch in her feet to which took her a few days to have them not be so senstive. Overall the spots are nice a big and its good layover spot if you have nowhere else but we probably wouldnt stay there again. We would give it a out 5 of 10. Not a bad overnight spot overall just make sure you get all the information and codes if needed.
