Can't beat the price at $15 a night, but it is a very unusual park. Lots of people use the park during the day and at night there is some traffic. This park is in the middle of dairy country and when the wind is right the cow manure smell is pretty strong. The park and pond are great though. Hookups were sufficient but on the old side. 30 amp only. Fine for a couple of nights stay. We camped at Lake Van Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small 50 acre lake operated by the city of Dexter with easy access by paved roads. Fishing (trout-winter, bass-summer) stocked by NM Game & Fish. Newly completed ADA restroom facility. Boating (up to 18', and jet-skis) in summer months, 4 fishing/boat docks. Dry camping all around the lakefront. Pets must be leashed as a lot of locals walk the road each morning/evening. Day trips to Carlsbad Caverns and many other area attractions. RV spots are back-in and have morning shade. A nice pavilion and gazebo also available. Nice place! We camped at Lake Van Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
