20 RV Parks near Costilla, New Mexico
Aug 2018 - $20.00
The park is 10,000 acres in the middle of 80,000 acres of cow country at 8000' MSL. Beautiful mountains and streams. Fished the Rio Costilla and visited the lakes (4wd recommended). No hooks ups, closest other camper was 1/2 mile away. This is where you go for fresh air and to avoid the crowds, not the cows. Cleanest porta potties I have ever been in! The park is not open year round. - Rivercityjeff

This is our favorite dry camping park for running from the summer heat. At home it is 100 deg, here about 75 deg with nights in the 40's. Our site is one of the largest in the CG, but many can accommodate larger trailers, 5th wheels and big Class C's. I have seen A's here, but a bit tight for the nicer sites. NO hookups, purely dry camping but there is city water available and vault toilets. Camp hosts are great and most campers are respectful of nature, I see zero trash on the ground. We've come here almost annually since about 2002, now retired we try to make it twice a year. Typical 14 day stay limit. Of the Carson Nat'l Forest CG's in the area this is the only one that does NOT allow reservations. - OpaS

This is the smallest of the Carson National Forrest campgrounds in the Red River area. All sites are dusty & gravel, but it is the closest to the city of Red River. We have camped here 4 times before and will do it again. There are pit toilets which are cleaned daily by the camp host, no shower. City water is available from one faucet from which you can fill your fresh water tank. The rate paid includes the National Senior 50% discount. - OpaS

New managers are working hard to upgrade the park. They are also very friendly and customer service oriented. Old water lines have been replaced with PEX tubing. New TV cable. Electric service soon to be upgraded but adequate for now. Sites are graveled and mostly level, many wide enough to park beside the rig. All are back in and require disconnecting except for very short trailers. LotsShowers, bathrooms and laundry are clean and open day and night. Although sites and parking are snug, there is adequate room to move around and managers are helpful for anyone having difficulty parking. Rate shown is based on monthly parking. Electric usage billed separately for monthly use only. - Russ & Glynna

The campground was so crowded, that neighbors had to move their vehicles for other campers to even get out. The spaces were jammed right up next to one another, and there was little to no parking for tow vehicles. We had no water when it froze overnight, The water pipes had no protection from freezing. Owners were not helpful, and when we were trying to back our trailer in, they were very rude. The RV park was misrepresented on their website, and gave no indication that the spaces were so small. They also advertised WIFI, and they did not have it at campsites. Before the water froze, we noticed that it was rusty water from running through rusty pipes. We rented our space for 3 nights, but left after the first night it was so horrible. They refused to give a refund, so we lost the money we spent for two nights. - Susan and Allan Schaeffer

Managers pack RVs into campground, about 5 feet between RVs. Very hard for big rigs to maneuver. Showers only open 8 to 5. Campground right next to highway, so lots of traffic noise. - P Schey

I feel the campground is likely the nicest in the area. Fawn Lakes is a smal campground right on the Red River just outside of town. All the campgrounds in the area I saw were right off highway 38. Because of this, expect lots of road noise for those spots off the river. Noise levels can read greater that 100 db. Anyone can fish along the river even if you're not camping at one of the on-river spots. Trout fishing is awesome so read up on what to bring and have a go at it. We are not hard core campers yet so we do we want electricity for the fifth wheel. Running a generator for TV with kids at night was ok but the neighbors who were cooking trout on the outdoor grill 20 yards away and sleeping in tents were frustrated by our generator. Our other neighbor actually went to the host and asked that we turn our generator off at 1040 pm. We have a child with a terminal illness so we needed the generator at night for his breathing machines. After three nights here, we learned the area and actually enjoyed ourselves more than we imagined. Indeed we are newbies to camping, but this site created incredible memories for our family. We intend to come back with a quiter generator. Water is on site and is easy to use. The town is neat with lots to do nearby. - Markfromtexas

Tuesday, June 4 – Fawn Lakes – Carson National Forest, Red River, New Mexico. This is one of five National Forest campgrounds near Red River, New Mexico, on the Scenic Byway, the Enchanted Circle. Most of the campsites are along the river, and there are sites big enough for 30ft RV’s. The best sites are for tenters or those with vans right on the river, but all sites are close to the river. No hookups, but water is available, and the pit toilets were very clean. It is a beautiful campground located under the Ponderosa Pines with some fir and spruce trees. Everyone can hear the river running southwest, and there are some paths along the river for walking to the lake. Fawn Lake (3 acres- four little lakes) is here for fishing which is also opened up to day trippers. Beautiful lake stocked with fish. The night we were there two young women were fishing at the lake and a bear came down the other side looking for food. It is bear country so beware. They now take reservations here since last fall, and the rest are first come. The cost was $17 and half with a pass. Beautiful and peaceful stop for a night or more. The four season town of Red River is less than two miles east on Route 38 which is also on the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway. This is the most popular byway and the one that is heavily promoted in the state of New Mexico. My husband wanted to stay a week here, it was so enjoyable. - gsnakehill

No hot water in showers for the first 2 days. No soap or paper towels or Hand dryers in bathrooms????!!!! "Rules", "regulations", "do nots", and "do" signs completely litter the entire campground and walls in restrooms. Not one "Welcome" sign or even a nice picture on the walls. The windows of the ladies shower house were uncovered and open. Excellent for warmth and privacy!!!!!! The WiFi is less Than and you have to sit on their porch to use it. It fades as soon as you pass the propane tank which is about 12'. Nothing spoke of hospitality or friendliness. It's sad, because it could be an extraordinary place. The town was awesome!!!!! The nearby hiking trails are unbelievably Beautiful!!!!! Just don't expect too much friendliness at this park. - Velma Wallace

We come to this park every year with family. We bring grandchildren for a week. We love the easy access to the fishing pond for the kids. Over the past few years the quality of the pond has become increasingly worse. This year it was terrible. The moss is so bad you cannot fish in the pond. The pond is a big calling card for the park and it is not being maintained. I would not recommend this park if you are interested in fishing their pond. The facilities and camp site are good. Gravel pad needs more gravel, but it is pretty level. Roads in and around the park need gravel and need holes filled. - Stephaniebarrett

Located close to town and has a beautiful view and Red River flows right through the park, there is a nice pond stocked with trout for fishing. Wifi and cell service is poor. Satalite TV worked well.
This campground needs serious drainage work to the sites and roads! Granted it rains in the afternoons often, but we have stayed in many rainey areas with no problems. This is nothing but an absolute mud hole, our site was covered with two inches of water. After complaining to the owner he got a shovel and tried to hand dig a drainage rut. Refused to move us and no offer of a reduction in rate.
Will will not stay here again. Beautiful area but the grounds are awful! - Jackie thornton

Our reservation was done online several months in advance. When we arrive our site was tagged with our name, and they can't post showed up within five minutes to make sure that we were the correct guests. Our site ran downhill a bit so A little extra effort was required to chock and level the trailer. The picnic table and fire ring was located on the backside of the site, but this provided a nice view from our living room. You could hear the occasional vehicle passing by on the highway below, but this was not a problem for us at all. There are a couple of water spigots in the park but you are not allowed to hook up a hose. So fill up with water before you arrive, or be prepared to ferry water by hand. I would also add that there is no place in red river to stop and fill up your trailer with water. Cellular service at the site was off and on. All this being said: We loved the place and definitely plan on coming back and staying longer. The scenery is beautiful and the sites are spaced to provide a good level of solitude and privacy. - GoHorns!

This is a very nice Campground in the Kit Carson National Forest. Located on New Mexico State Highway 38 about 3 miles west of Red River NM at an elevation of nearly 8,600 on the GPS. With paved interior roads, it has four sites with level concrete pads. The remaining 16 sites have paved asphalt parking areas for RV's with their tables and fire rings adjacent in the dirt. About 3/4's of the sites can accommodate big rigs and long fifth wheels. Each site has a campfire grill and a picnic table. Water is available at several locations. Most of the camp sites are 50 to 80 feet from the other sites and masked by trees. Sites are nestled amidst large Ponderosa pines and Aspens. With our Golden Age Pass we paid $7.50 per night. Definitely a campground to come back to. Full on weekends with space usually available during the weekdays: at least that's what the camp host said. - happyflyer

This is a great national forest campground with level concrete pads at each site. It has campfire grill and a picnic table on a paved patio at each site. Water is available at several locations. Each site is 70-80 feet from the other and masked by trees. The campground was spotless and the air was clean and fresh. Sites are nestled amidst large Ponderosa pines and Aspens. Why anyone would camp in a side by side RV park in Red River when this is available is beyond reason. - JWT

We stayed in the adults loop, which had sites with a little more privacy than the rest of the park. The other parts on the park nearer the river definitely had more of a party type atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and the park wasn't too bad (for an RV park...site are still super close together with little privacy. The utilities all worked, and the area was very clean. Our site was surprisingly unlevel and required all of our leveling blocks to get level. - wulfleton

Gorgeous views of the mountains, very friendly staff in a gated RV park...no tent camping here. Lots of kids and lots of dogs but people seemed very friendly. The staff was friendly check-in was easy and they offered to escort to site which we declined. Our site # A was OK it was back in so we needed to disconnect to get in but there was plenty of room for our motorhome and our Expedition Max to park without feeling squeezed in. We had some shade so that was nice. There is a nice dog run for off leash time and also dog areas near our site. The place was full for the most part and busy. It is close to the downtown shopping and eating areas and quiet and scenic. We would definitely stay again if we came this way in the future, but I would chose a site that backs up to the river on the other side of the park. The river runs fast and is nice and peaceful to listen to. Lots of stores and places to eat within a few miles. - mshoff

Nicest RV park in Red River but very packed close together, even the premium sites which get you a few more feet apart for a fee. Clean park, staff helpful but way too crowded for our liking. - Tango2
