“So much fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Went years ago when I was in high school, now that I have 3 boys it was a blast! They loved playing in the sand and water! We rented a paddle boat and a paddle board for a total of $15 for an hour. We were worn out after the hour and went back to playing in the sand and water. The beach area is nice and there are picnic tables, grills, and covered areas for you to hang out in as well as keep your stuff. Bring your own food and drinks as they don't sell any onsite, however no alcohol is allowed in the park.
For a $5 entry fee per carload, and $15 in rentals it is a great, cheap, fun time, that you can stay all day (til 9pm) at lounging by the water, paddling around or building sand castles with the kids. Bring snorkels and goggles, as it is salt water.
Well worth the 15 minute drive from Roswell, and well worth driving into from anywhere in west Texas or SE New Mexico. Very kid friendly, and the water isn't deep at all in the huge swimming area that is corded off. GO!!:-)

Stayed August 2014, travelled with family

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

Located 12 miles from Roswell. Do not listen to the shortcut directions from the campground host unless you want to waste an hour driving through backroads - trust your GPS. If you are here for the sole purpose of visiting Roswell, stay at one of the campgrounds on the outskirts of Roswell. The park roads are in poor condition and the drive to Roswell takes >30 minutes. Half of the sites can be reserved on-line. Six sites have EWS, 25 have EW, and three are unserviced. While the campground fee is only $14 (EW), this does not include the $10.60 reservation fee. Sites are level and a decent size, and some offer a fair degree of privacy from your neighbours. If you come here to experience the park, I suspect that you will have an enjoyable time, however, we were here only for an overnight and found it inconvenient.
