Great history of the area. We go to hike the trails. Table Mountain is awesome, but we have to work up to it. This year they added a hike just before the main entrance which is fairly level with about 1.3 miles circle.

What an excellent place to visit and explore. There are hidden original Indian painting throughout. I found two. Great camping places, showers and a nice RV area too. Very good value. Can't wait until our next time through.

We drove out after lunch and stayed the night. We hiked around the beautiful rock formations, did a hike up to the lookout, and also did a 2 mike hike just before the Visitor Center. The RV hookup spots were nice, no complaints except they...More

Wonderful. Middle of nowhere and off the beaten path. Camping is fine and the night sky is fantastic. Walk, hike, explore the area. Carry water and remain hydrated. Even on cool days.

A very cool sight to see. Camping is good here too. Plan on a couple of hours and be sure to go to the overview spot.

I went here solo, thinking I was going to make a quick day trip out of it. WRONG! This place deserves an entire day AND night of camping. It is the perfect mix of solitude/dark skies/and facilities. Here is the breakdown. There are several camping...More

New Mexico has the best campgrounds and City of Rocks ranks right up there. City of Rocks is close to Deming and has plenty of scenic, secluded campgrounds if you are willing to camp with no power or water. Unfortunately, the electric and water are...More

Breath taking awesome sites and the rocks are amazing.This looks like a terrifc spot for RV Camping. The rocks are formed from volcanic eruptions millions of years ago. Well worth the visit!

It has many interesting rock formations. The many campsites randomly placed throughout makes it a little odd to explore.

Spending the night under the dark skies of the park - incredible! This place is isolated and affords plenty of opportunity for the imaginative. Campsites are spaced far enough apart so as not to be bothered b your neighbor. The rock formations are fun and...More

A couple of hours would be plenty. That being said, we felt as though we would like to camp there at a future date as it is so unique.
