Nice clean park & camping area. Easy in, easy out. Easy access to dump. Like the security gate to the camping area. Good well maintained hiking trails with lots of historical significance. Friendly staff. Just in one day on trails we saw wild hogs, rabbits, roadrunners & heard coyotes.
You can look up why this place is historic. Its unusual because this historic park also caters to rock climbers, so protection of the Indian artifacts goes hand on hand with the climbers. They do this through very struck permitting. Many places are only accessible if you are with a liscensed guide. There are guided tours available through the park, reservations are suggested. Note the that the guided tours are not available on Mon. & Tues, so you may be very limited as to what you can see on your own. The campground itself has some very beautiful sites and views. Very nice park, with unusual requirements.
Fantastical rock mountains, unlike anything I've ever seen.....with over 300 separate areas scattered thru out of ancient petroglyphs....some up to 3,000 years old!!! Campground has 20 paved sites, w/e, dumpsite, very nice showers, no cable or ota tv reception, no wifi, and spotty att cell reception (tho' both att and tmobile have strong signal just down the road, if you need it! Park host, Dave is a sweetheart. Must attend a 15 minute orientation video to be allowed into this prehistoric park and experience the sites it contains!
Beautiful! A hidden gem! Clean RR/S. Really quite. $7 each person to enter park , $16 a night.
We spent one night at this campground and it was one of the best campgrounds we stayed at during our three week trip. They have some restrictions about arrival at the campground as the surrounding area is a historical site with areas that are not open to explore without a guide. Also, we were told that the gate closes in the evening and comings & goings are only allowed for emergencies. Our site was wonderful with plenty of trees giving us privacy from the other campers. Hiking and exploring the site in the morning was a treat. Great place to shoot photos. When we go through El Paso again, we'll make sure to stay at this campground again.
This park is a piece of heaven on earth. Facilities are steps above most RV places and it is small and quaint. Trails to hike and Native American Indian history is not only learned but felt. Wildlife abundant and the stars are so bright you feel like you can touch them. Sites are set up with level hard conglomerate pads with water and electric and a community dump station Will return!!
