I was raised in Odessa so I've been to the sand hills a lot. I bought my first camper in the 1980, a cab over camper with no AC. The first place I camped was at Monahan's State Park in August. Unlike Katy, when the sun goes down so does the temperature. It was 92 at 7PM and 68 at 7AM. A very nice campout.

The first time I go a little money together I install a 13,000 BTU AC in that camper, way more than I needed. I could hang meat in there in July.

We stayed there January 25, 2015, and our site was a back-in one (not parallel to the road). We were lucky the wind was calm ... I think it would be ugly if it was windy!

All of this is where I grew up, born in El Paso so the desert is a bit of home to me and went to school at what was then WTSU in Canyon. I actually worked one summer in Palo Duro in an internship, an amazingly beautiful place.

These little spots on the road are what it's all about.

I was just through there on my way to and from Phoenix. The weather stranded me at Van Horn for one night. I stayed at Mountain View RV Park and I have to say it was one of the better maintained parks I've been in. Every site is pull-through and level. The price was reasonable, too. The restrooms/showers were cleaner than most hotels I've stayed in.

Enjoy Las Cruces... I've always liked it there.

We stayed there last winter for three nights - could hardly go out the first afternoon and next day due to the wind blowing the sand around so much. Then really enjoyed the following day and hated to leave. Would return again if in that area.
