New Mexico

We are looking for camp grounds and information for south New Mexico for the month of November. Any suggestions or help would be helpful. We enjoy rv campgrounds more than park model resorts but open to any.

We used to live in Las Cruces (which is about as South as you can get in NM and still be in the USA ) I pinged a couple of friends who still live there (and are RVers) so I am fairly confident this info is up to date....

The Hacienda RV "Resort" is a decent place to stay. It is a resort in name only - basically a good campground that is within walking distance from old Mesilla. The do long-term rates.

Depending on your rig size, you could camp at Aguirre Springs for 1 or 2 nights. It is BLM property so no hookups but OMG the view is fantastic and the night skies are unbelievable! There is almost zero light pollution, so the milky way is easily seen. It will get nippy at night in November, so prepare accordingly.

The more RV-friendly Oliver Lee Memorial SP in the Sacramento mountains is another good bet - they have W/E campsites so you could stay there as long as your black tank holds out

Oliver Lee Memorial State Park

City of Rocks State Park is another good place for RV'ers to camp. The rock formations are amazing and again, light pollution is minimal so the night skies are amazing!

Depending on your interest, you can see everything there is to see in Las Cruces/Mesilla in a week, so you may want to move on to Deming (60-ish miles west). This is when you would want to stay at City of Rocks.

The 81 Palms Senior RV Park in Deming is a good bet if you are in the 55+ Age Category.

If you have some specific questions about South NM, let me know and I will try to answer them.

(P.S. If you are not from South NM, I don't care how hot you like your food...do NOT order the Barker Hot Hatch Green Chilie )

I too used to live in Cruces. Miss the food there allot!

Oliver Lee Park is awesome. Off of the beaten path so to speak but not too far off.

Hacienda Park is real nice and close to everything in Old Mesilla. I lived in Mesilla park area of Cruces and La Posta was one of the best places period to eat.
In Las Cruces Nellies is excellent as is the Spanish Kitchen (my choice for breakfast).

We lived up on the East Mesa Keystone

A friendly disagreement on La Posta - yeah it is surprisingly good for being a perceived tourist trap (it is, but it really isn't! Locals DO eat there But IMHO, Andele's edges La Posta out.

As for breakfast...have you ever eaten at Mesilla Valley Kitchen on Lohman AVE? OMG, the MVK Spuds are to die for! (home fried potatoes tossed with bacon, sausage, and chorizo and then topped with Green Chilie Cheese sauce and a egg as you like it on top!) Sure a heart attack on a plate, but you only live once LOL.

Also agree with you about Nellies -- GRINGO WARNING HERE - Nellies serves some rather HOT Hatch green chilie so make sure you have a extra order of sour cream when you order your Christmas Enchilada plate!

[NM Pro tip - when you order food in NM, your server will invariably ask "Red or Green" - that being red or green chilie sauce. The veteran NM restaurant goer will order "Christmas" which means half your plate will be red sauce and the other green
