Lovely & quiet place. Spacious site. Would go again - great spot to stop on my way east from Albuquerque.
Better than town
If you don't need water and sewer, drive 10 mi north on Santa Rosa Lake Road to the state campground. There is a dam on the Pecos River and about 40 nice campsites. The other campsites are horse campsites.
The campground and campsites are all paved and most are drive thrus. About half (those in the A loop) have water and electric; the B sites have neither. Sites are huge and most have ramadas to provide shade from the hot NM summer sun. No highway noise, no street lights, 90,000 stars (but who's counting). Loved it.
Bathrooms are usual; husband took a shower and said it was nice. The frequent state park think where you press the buttom and the shower runs for a set period of time. But it was warm and wet.
The lake isn't much as of 10/11 because of the severe southwest drought. In fact, the park people refer to it as a bunch of puddles rather than a lake. But Santa Rosa is worth a day checking out all of the interesting sites.
