2 RV Parks near Portales, New Mexico
Nov 2018 - $4.00
This is our second stop at the park this year (the other stop was in Spring). I felt the need to update some information. The bathroom/shower facilities at this park are the best and newest I've seen at any park! Some people mention the cattle feed "smell". It IS there when there is no wind. It's not the worst I've smelled... but if you're not used to it, it can be over powering. - Wandering With Us

After a three night stay here, here are my thoughts: PROS: We were in site 26 which has a totally level, long concrete site. 50 amp with water. Tons of space between sites. Park is only 4 miles from the town of Portales, NM - Super Walmart near little cafe in town (Do Drop In). Lots of quail and cottontail rabbits. CONS: FLIES AND WASPS. There are tons of both. Couldn't figure out why so many flies but when I stepped outside our coach the first night the reason was obvious - the smell of stock yards was overwhelming. Discovered that this area is HEAVY with dairy farming. Folks, the flies and wasps are extremely thick and you are constantly chasing them down in your car and rig. MAJOR CON: every single water faucet in the park has a warning sign hanging on it warning of HIGH nitrate levels in the water (almost twice the safe levels) which is caused by the dairy cattle's poop and the fertilizer that has leached into the water around the town. (Wasn't an issue for me because I just used fresh water I had on board - I didn't even hook up to the faucet because I didn't want any of their water in my water system. FYI: The entire time we were here, we NEVER saw a park employee. A little unusual to say the least. Even with the negative points, I'd definitely return if I was ever in the area again. - ernest917

Campground very nice with lots of space between sites. You are in dairy country so lots of flys and sometimes the smell from the cows can be ripe from the dairy feed lots. Nice fishing pond onsite. Visit the Blackwater Draw Site while you are here. This is where the Clovis Point was found. Water is not really drinkable, nitrates and arsenic. All the restaurants serve bottled/filtered water. - outgear adventure

Very friendly owners and very accommodating! The park is exceptionally well kept and clean! The rates are more than reasonable with full hookup's water, sewage & 50 amp service. Our 40ft 5th wheel fit beautifully. There is a nice grassy area for our 4 legged kids to take care of their business. Really enjoyed our stay!! We did pay $3.00 a night for a 3rd person. - Jim-66-92

We stayed one night and found it to be very quiet and restful. Paved pull-through in space #7 was level and somewhat shaded. The most noticeable feature of the park was the number and decibel of the multiple variety of birds. We found everything to be awesome for $20.00 per night. All we used was the 30 amp electric. - JeffIn505

This park is indeed open. It's run by an older couple. There really isn't much to it, with few amenities, but it works for a night. The site was long enough that we didn't have to unhook the toad. The only downside for us was when we walked our little dog, she got sand burrs in her paws. It was right off of Rt. 70 so it was great for a stop for the night. - GranNan06
