A unique and gorgeous campground within the rocks!
This campground is ALL about the rocks and it’s 100% worth it for that alone. The City of Rocks is a surreal cluster of gorgeous rocks located in the middle of nowhere half-way between Deming and Silver City. There’s a small selection of 10 very nice, huge (enormous) electric sites with 30Amp/water just outside the rocks and then there’s 45 sites of varying size within the rocks themselves. The road around the loop is very bumpy and for bigger rigs the best sites seem around #2 (at front), #16, 17 (reservation) or #27-29. For medium-sized rigs there’s alot more choice. There’s also several miles of hiking trails, a lovely overlook and hours of fun getting lost within the rocks. We had a blast hanging out here and would recommend everyone to experience this unique spot at least once in their lives.
NOTE/ Our $4/night rate reflects what we paid for electric hookups using New Mexico Annual Camping Permit

Extra Info: Amazingly we had full 3G Verizon signal for both the smartphone and aircard. Sites cost $10/night for developed (non hook-up = 45 sites), $14/night for water/30Amp electric (10 sites). Camping fees can be covered with New Mexico Annual Camping Permit. 8 sites reservable, others are first-come-first-serve. On-site water spigot, but NO dump station.
This is a very unique park indeed. Google it for images.
The electric RV campground is situated just off to the side of the City. There are 10 electric sites and only 2 are reservable online (with a $10 reservation fee). The other 8 are first come first serve. If you boondock you can situate yourself in between rocks for a one-of-a-kind experience. Got 4 bars Verizon signal. Was able to get more than tolerable Verizon 3G internet speeds with 2.66 Mbps download and .38 Mbps upload.
There is no sewer dump, so you must go 30-35 miles to either Deming or Silver City to dump with a fee. I think they purposely left sewer dump off the table so that RVers would mindfully conserve water as this is a desert.
There is no lights at night.. so you have a wonderful view of star display above at night.
