City of Rocks State Park


Camping is one of the favorite options here. Given the weather in New Mexico, rain or snow is very unlikely. The night is almost always nice and cool (even in the heat of summer). The park offers restrooms, showers, and electrical hookups. Each camping site has its own BBQ grill and picnic table. The trail is also nice to walk around.

Be sure to bring your own food and water unless you want to drive about half a hour each way to Deming or Silver City. There is nothing here in between. Not even a gas station! If need to make a supply run, be sure to leave early so you can get back before the gate closes (9:00pm).

For the person who prefers comfort, Faywood Hot Springs is just a mile and half down the road.
