Enjoyed the relaxing nature. Wide gravel spots, some have full connections. (Only6) others have W/E only or nothing. Oh and covered picnic table at site. Bath house is fine, gravel road in campground. Lake& picnic area is very nice… but day use people use it too.

Very hard to find at night, not very well marked. Ok site. We had plumbing problems so had to use restrooms. Pretty clean. Would stay again.

We were here 1 night. It is a quiet park. Camp host had lots of information about the park.

Came to see the sinkhole lakes and that was interesting. Sad to see the effect of the drought on the wetlands. Enjoyed two walks and the main lake - Lea. Popular place so quite full. Visited Roswell, because. Restrooms were nice.

Electric CG, Site #22
Quite and clean. Our site was fairly level. Water and Electric at site. Dump station at CG entranceway, clean. We visited in early Spring, so there wasn't much green. The visitor center was not open and the showers were off. There are fishing opportunities and there is a swimming beach that will be open later.

Passing thru found this on the app and stayed 2 nights. Only 3 sites are non reserved and was fortunate to get one. Full both nights. So quiet and virtually no lites to ruin the evening star gazing.

Great park. Campground right by Lea Lake, bath houses are clean and nice. Park staff keeps trash taken out and park well maintained. Large swimming area, crystal clear water with pedal boat rentals while in season. Dump station easily accessible.
Sites are well marked for both site number as well as price on the canopy built over the picnic tables. $14 a night for water/electric. $18 for water/electric/sewer. They have many first come first serve sites. The park uses a pay station at the entrance to the campground for payment.
Camp hosts were amazingly nice, recommended hiking trails to take, as well as helped save our camper from a grass fire that had got started while we were away. We came back to find fire 20 feet from our camper and people had been spraying water to keep it away. Fire department got it put out, but it was after we got our camper out though.
Amazing park. Best we saw in the area. Everyone was super nice.

By The Lake
I think we got the last tent camping spot but it was beautiful! The lot was spacious and we had a nice picnic shelter. The bath house was close by and nice and clean. Our view overlooked the lake and was pretty quiet considering how full the campground was. Really nice place to stay!

Not Our Favorite!
Ok but not great. Almost seemed like camping in a gravel pit. Not what we thought but OK.

Nice With A Rind On It
Good layout and space is adequate. The mildly salinated lakes look to be craters of eroded sedimentary rock that filled with water, most "lakes" are tiny ponds. Clean enough, maintenance needs a little more effort and attention but nothing disgusting. Wish I could give 3.5 stars but this doesn't deserve 4.
We also stayed at both Pancho Villa and Oliver Lee parks in NM. Those were cleaner and the State had invested in very attractive landscaping - they are much more pleasant overall.

Great Cool-off Spot
Showers so-so. If you don't have a reservation Find the FSFC site signs that are blue with white #s. Nice swimming lake. Wifi better than some private RV pks. Scenic red bluffs. Also novice bike bluff trail.

If you are an RV camper, your only option is to camp at Lea Lake by default ($14). The Lea Lake area is where all the flushable toilets, warm showers, hand sinks, children's playground, hook-ups, wi-fi and seasonal concessions, etc. dwell. Not sure if tent campers are allowed in the Lea Lake campgrounds, but if you are a tent camper, there are other campgrounds that are semi-developed for $10 (vault toilets, covered picnic tables and a working spigot dispensing "city water," per park employee).

Better hope your screens don't have any holes! LOTS of buzzing and mosquitoes. Crazy, gnarly desert bike loop - lots of whooptee doos and jumps. Broke my seat and made eye contact with a ground owl. Great day!

Best Deal Around
For $14 a night you get flat pull through or back in sites, full hook up, clean bathrooms and showers, free wifi and a nice lake for swimming. What more could you ask for.
