3 RV Parks near Villanueva, New Mexico
Nov 2017 - $14.00
This is the 3rd time I have camped here. It is very popular with the Albuquerque crowd so fills up all summer and on the weekends, fall and spring. On my previous visits, campers were allowed to camp in reserved sites with green tags for an overnight. Sites that were reserved for that date had red tags. This was a great idea but it is no longer true. You CAN NOT camp in any of the reserved sites without a reservation. And all the best sites are "reserved." We ended up having to take a site without hookups while half of the reserved sites sat empty. That is the main reason for my 7 instead of a 9 rating. We were here on a Tuesday. We never saw the host and other campers who had been there several days said they had not seen him either.
The campground is lovely. Many of the sites are wonderful: shaded, near the river and large. However it doesn't matter which way you drive to the park, from the north or south: Rt 3 is narrow, winding and has absolutely no shoulder. So if your wife or dog falls out, or you have a flat or clip a guard rail you just have to drive on until you reach the post office. It is more than I am willing to deal with. Been there done that. - NT2013

We stayed here on our way to Santa Fe. The road up from Rt 40 is very tight for a big rig just before you get to the park. Go slow, gear down, and use the entire road. The park is definitely secluded. It is right on the Pecos river and has some neat hiking. The interior roads are mostly paved. There are electric sites, but all must be reserved. Most are not pull thru. Our site 20B, is reservable, but has no power. However, it was one of the only pull thrus. All sites have a wind shelter. The wind is pretty strong in the canyon and the tent campers were setting up inside the shelters. We prefer non commercial parks. This fit our needs wonderfully. - CharlieS

Previous reviews are right about this CG being a lovely little spot for peace and quiet with the only sound is the Pecos River running though it. The restroom were clean and well taken care of. The roads in the park are paved but the sites are not. This CG is on their reservation system and I would recommend reserving and paying the extra fee because in the off season there is no one around to take care of the on site system and all the electric sites, whether reserved or not say they are reserved, so all that you can camp at are the non electric site, and there is no cell service to call anyone either. We came in from Hwy 40 and "what a ride" for the last few miles, down a narrow switchback cliff and then back up thru the little town with narrow sharp turns. I would recommend you come in from the north to avoid the cliff, but it is still a narrow and windy road. The dump station was easy to get into but make sure you are disconnected because the turnaround at the end in very tight. The upper loop which was closed when we were there but it is on such a steep road going up and down 1 way that I would not want to take our big rig up there, but the sites, once you get there are big and fairly level with a spectacular view of the valley. Make sure you bring all the supplies you need because the closest town is an hour and half on those windy roads and hwy 25 all the way to Santa Fe. - rhianna

A great idea - full hook-ups in a secure location conveniently located to the road but far enough off road noise isn't bad for a very reasonable cost. Not much else except the truckstop its associated with but for overnight thats ok. Too bad the sites aren't level. Not just ours, looking about I don't think there was a level site there. An all gravel fenced area with concrete medians for utilities. Easy to get around on asphalt roads. I'll go a 9 for the idea and the price but its really just the basics and the implementation (slope) leaves something to be desired. - fulltimer121

Stayed one night. Right on the highway but the noise did not bother us. We have always stopped at Clines Corners on our way back to Texas from Colorado and this park was perfect for us. Met some very nice fellow travelers. We will stay here again. We felt the price was a great value. It is located right at the intersection of highways IH-40 and US 285. - MACinTX

Stayed here overnight. RV park is fairly new and excellently maintained. Spaces were spacious with easy hook ups and easy on and off I-40. The park is completely fenced in and requires a passcode to enter. There is no shade but temps at night were cool. All spaces are pull through a with a Tarascan at each site. - S Dowdy

Other reviews are accurate about level, the big rig sites are great but the smaller sites take some leveling. It can be done, just be aware. Full hook ups available and there is a nice dog run. They’ve put a path to the dog run so you can avoid the stickers. The stickers do exist in the wild grass so just be aware. We were fine just walking around the campground.
Verizon cell for data was just useable. AT&T was not useable. The wireless was ok. - inetelle

Begrudging service. Almost all sites are elevated with a sufficient incline to make it difficult for a tow vehicle. Water pressure very low. Deluxe sites are a joke with a trellis fence, very small picnic table and very small swing too close to the trellis to actually use. - Scldg

We were only here for one night, but found the campground to be perfect for our needs. The site was pretty level and plenty long for our 37' TT and our large Ford F250 with 6' bed. The campground had nice views and was quiet and peaceful. We had a neat little metal swing on the little patio by our picnic table with lattice set up to provide privacy between sites. The check-in was quick and easy and the folks were very friendly and helpful. We didn't do much exploring of the park or the area, but found it to be a great place for a one night stop-over on our way to Colorado. Would gladly stay here again! - Susan Gibson
