Southeast New Mexico

Next summer we hope will be a trip back west. This will include New Mexico, one of our favorites. We tend to park for weeks if not a month or more and explore the surrounding area. The one region we have not visited is the southeast between White Sands and Texas. Any insight about the area, RV parks, do not miss sites/sights, do NOT go to, restaurants, etc. would be appreciated. History and photography are our main interests. Please do not mention golf.

Wildcat should be along soon. He lives in that area and can most likely help you out. Many people see that as barren desert but you are wise to see the true beauty of the area.

Carlsbad Caverns!

And we really enjoy Cloudcroft and nearby Sunspot, although the road between Alamogordo and Cloudcroft can be a bit challenging for some long RVs. The Three Rivers Petroglyph Site north of Alamogordo is exceptional and has several electric campsites. Ruidoso has skiing and there is a lot of Wild West history in Lincoln County.

In the realm of fantasy, there is always Roswell, which takes science fiction to extremes. Silly, but "interesting."

Our favorite state parks anywhere are in New Mexico. Just this year, we stayed at Sugarite Canyon, Heron Lake, and Santa Rosa Lake. In past years, we have also been to Elephant Butte, Caballo Lake, Percha Dam, Clayton Lake, Storrie Lake, and Navajo Lake. Most are on Corps of Engineers or Bureau of Reclamation lakes.

You may not be able to stay a month (most have a 14-day limit), but it's hard to beat $14/night for W/E sites with a dump, flush toilets, and showers. In SE NM, there are Brantley Lake north of Carlsbad, Bottomless Lake at Roswell, and Oliver Lee at Alamogordo. You will likely need reservations at Oliver Lee, as it has only 18 electric sites and is the closest SP to Alamogordo, Holloman AFB, and White Sands Missile Range (ie., lots of local RVers!).
