Reviews for Villanueva State Park

| Beautiful little park

By user-6361503... on 2017-10-23.

Really nice location next to a river, better maintained than other State parks we have been too. Not many power sites. Agree with the other reviewers about the reservation system it seems the signs just aren't changed.... happens at all NM State Parks

| Beautiful park right on Pecos River

By user-5816601... on 2017-10-23.

One mile long, so small park but beautiful. 300 foot cliff on other side of river prevents any cell reception. Nice bridge over river to some trails and historic spanish ruins (the conquistadors came through.). Both electric and dry sites. Good dumpsite and several water hook ups. While it is open year round, half the sites are closed til May 1 and bathrooms are only available in daytime til then. Each site has table and fire ring. Half the sites have table in a shelter. Nice bathrooms and showers. Trails are rocky but worth the walk. People were catching brown trout.

| Nice park but a bit confusing. Some power sites.

We arrived just after dark on a Sunday evening. Most sites had a "reserved" marker on. We took one of the few that didn't; all power sites said reserved. Seemed that the markers were incorrect, probably not removed from the night before. Frustrating. Some sites very small, some large pull thru. Some have BBQs, some have solid shelters. All very different. Has a dump site. Had showers, not sure about hot water. Non-power sites $10, power $14. Looks like a beautiful area. River runs right next to grounds. We only stayed one night.

| Ok for a stay

Twenty three miles off I40. Clean. Stayed one night. Showers clean, warm, and good pressure. Self registration very confusing. Many sites marked reserved/ occupied. Obviously incorrect. Must mean reservable. Only two other campers in park in the morning. Electric sites 30 amp $14.

| Great Visit!

Staff was friendly and helpful. Very nice campsite next to the Pecos River. Great hiking - beginner to moderate. Quaint village. No cell reception in camp - great reception when hiking up. Hope we make it back.

| A favorite for us

We stayed a week the end of August, 2018. This is a State of NM park. There's a visitor center, and all sites have electric. Many sites have water available, though it hurt says ekectricity. With a splitter to attach, and a long hose you'll likely have access to hookup. Dump site available. Bathrooms, and a shower (though we didn't use the shower).

Great little campground on the Pecos River. Some sites with 30amp. Super sites up a steep hill for small campers and tents. Little general store in the village has just about anything (homemade burritos, mmmmmmmmmgood)! This is a quiet, peaceful place except for weekends.
