Bosque Birdwatcher's RV Park is only a few hundred yards from the border of Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge which makes it perfect if you want to view wildlife, watch birds or attend the Festival of the Cranes! The owner (Billy) is friendly and goes out of his way to make his guests comfortable. This is not an RV Resort but a campground with room for tents, full hookups for RVs and flush toilets. Billy's prices are reasonable (I paid $25/night for electric and water during the Festival Of The Cranes. I called to see if there were any sites left about two weeks before the start of the festival and Billy had reservations for all the sites but, when I said I only needed electricity, Billy said to come on down and he would find a place for my 25' trailer. He kept his word. I'll go back to Bosque Birdwatcher's RV Park again and recommend it to anyone who does not need amenities like a pool, spa or paved sites.
Wow, what a find in the middle of nowhere. I mean this in a fantastic way. We had headed south out of Albquerque after going to the balloon museum and found this park on RV Parky. Drove to it and found a blue Ford Ranger pick up at the entrance with the driver waving for us to follow him. He parked us in a spot and then came up to the driver's window of our MH and found out it was Billy the owner of the park. An absolutely nice and instantly likable person. He told us to get hooked up and would be right back with the form to fill out. About this time another MH drove in and he got them parked also. Make a long story short there were three DP Motorhomes parked out in the middle of nowhere. Not a resort but beautiful stars at night and a unique setting. Yes you will hear a train about 2:30 am but I think trains are nostalgic and don't bother me. If in this area please make this park a stop over. You will not be disappointed. Per chance if you are heading east on 380 make sure you stop at Smokey the Bear National Park. Yes, the real Smokey the Bear resting place.
No showers, one toilet in men’s bathroom and one in women’s and they are dirty. Our site was barely big enough. RV next door could hardly open their door without hitting our Class B small motor home. Mosquitoes galore. Gave it one star because it’s close to Bosque Wildlife Refuge. Basically a gravel parking lot with some ancient water and electric hookups. Unhooked our electric cable and drove back to Socorro before the owner came to collect the fee.
