Campsite Rockhound State Park Deming New Mexico

Rockhound State Park

Our spot at Rockhound State Park looks more exposed than it is. Only 21 RV campsites further down the road past our site. It’s not actually a designated spot, but they were all taken at 9:30 am and the ranger said it was ours.

It really looks like we are camping on a highway or at least a wide spot on a highway and it feels like we are camping on a highway, except all the cars that go by are going pretty slow. I’m quite glad that this is our spot. Other locations would have been fine, but they were all occupied and we are off to ourselves, even though we get to see everyone come and go.

We took on the water this morning, solar is doing a good job on the batteries.

Rockhound State Park is a popular location because rock people are allowed to take a few rocks home with them. The hill is known for crystals if you know what you are looking for.

We covered about 300 miles in the last few days stopping twice in vineyards and once at a very neglected city park so we are taking a pause in moving so much.

Here is a link to the google map for the area.

  1. Heard you went to the City of Rocks. We went there several years ago. I do some work at the Chino mine just north of there.
