Looking for a nice campground to winter in New Mexico any suggestions? Would prefer center of state or north east. Were from upstate New York and travel from here to there just to look for campgrounds are out of the question. Internet sites are some times decieving as you do not get the full picture. Thanks for any help.

Do you realize how cold it gets in the central & northeastern part of New Mexico during the winter? If you are looking for a warm spot, then you will have to go to southern Arizona or the RGV in Texas.

We just stayed in a 55+ RV Park in Santa Fe, NM.

Trailer Ranch RV Resort

It's a real nice park, we'll definitely stay there again.

You'd do well to use your internet connection and check on temps in that part of NM. You're gonna think you're in NY again during winter.

I see a 55+ campground off I-10 just west of Deming, NM in the southern part of NM. 81 Palms

Reviews of RV Resorts in Deming.

Hidden Valley Ranch and Low Hi Ranch RV Park

Here are some in Las Cruces. But I do not believe we have any 55+ Parks, but I put them in for you to see.

Hacienda RV Resort

Sunny Acres RV Park

Less than a mile away from my daughter's house in Tucson is a 55+ RV Resort which is gated & looks nice from the road. There are two Rincon Country RV Resorts West or East. She lives near the East one.

Another 55+ RV Resort in Tucson: Western Way

Desert Trails is out on the western edge of Tucson, not seen it, just read about it a few weeks ago. Review at Cyberspaces

"This park is hard to rate. If you want peace and quiet, especially in the summer, this is the perfect place. You are away from Tucson and miss typical airplane, train, or highway traffic noise. And we had a great space next to some desert brush. The owner is a terrific guy and gives you a great orientation about places to go and things to see. His orientation was very helpful to us. But, the park does need some serious work; especially the water slides that need to be removed (since they are non-functional now). Nevertheless, I would stay here again, versus another park that is just next door, but very bare. Our rate reflects the CCUSA discount. We camped here in a Motorhome." AND "We chose this park based on the rave reviews by others, but were somewhat disappointed. It appears that it is the friendly owners and guests as well as the activities that make this such a popular place to spend the Winter. The park would benefit greatly by some demolition of the old water park buildings, more modern facilities and cable TV. Many of the sites are just unappealing bare gravel, but since most of the snowbirds had left, we were able to park in a very pleasant spot with lovely desert vegetation all around. Wi-fi reception was spotty and TV reception poor. We would probably try to find a park closer to the city if traveling through here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel." RV Park Reviews

Green Valley is near Tucson a retirement community in fact. Reviews

Small town of Wilcox maybe an hour or so from Tucson. Reviews & Others

Closer to Tucson in Benson there is a 55+ RV Resort, NO make that TWO. - Others & Reviews

It would be warmer in Tucson than in New Mexico, but more than likely, less expensive in Southern NM; which is far from as cold as NY or Ohio or Dallas. We seldom see any snow, and any we get is gone in a day or two if not sooner in Southern NM. Never had an ice storm in the 38 years I have been in Las Cruces. I was able to ride my motorcycle all last winter without any special winter gear.
Tucson ETC

Las Cruces is located in southern New Mexico. We are on the edge of the Chihuahuan Desert, at the foot of the Organ Mountains and along the banks of the Rio Grande. Las Cruces is 225 miles south of Albuquerque, NM, 275 miles east of Tucson, AZ and 42 miles north of El Paso, TX.

Las Cruces enjoys 350 days of sunshine a year. Temperatures in the summer months routinely reach the high 90s, with nighttime lows in the 60s. The fall air is a bit cooler with daytime highs of mid 70s to low 80s. During the winter, when northern states are digging themselves out from under the snow, Las Cruces basks in daytime temperatures ranging from the upper 50s to lower 60s. As spring arrives in March and April, temperatures climb steadily from the low to high 80s. Las Cruces receives an average of 8.5 inches of rain per year and no more than two inches of snow in the winter.

Deming is about 60 miles west of Las Cruces and enjoys about the same weather.

Las Cruces Photo Tour.

About 80 miles north of Las Cruces is Elephant Butte with some RV Parks. Simular to Las Cruces but slightly cooler temps. Reviews

Alamogordo is about 75 miles from Las Cruces with simular temps.

There are lots of the 55+ parks in the Phoenix area, but they are in the Phoenix area. Ha! Las Cruces Attractions

If you go to Northeast NM make sure you have plenty of supplies as you could get snowed in for a week or more at a time. In central NM (like Albuquerque where I live) it will get pretty cold but you are not likely to get snowed in. It may get down in the teens at night but usually back up above freezing during the day. I ride my motorcycle pretty much all year with a good leather jacket and gloves. If you're looking for warmer weather you may want to stay in Southern NM or Arizona instead. I mostly boondock and don't know anything about 55+ campgrounds in the area.

If you go down on I-10 there are MANY rv parks from El Paso to Lordsburg and some around there. Do not worry, they will not be full. Anything north of I-10, I would be doing a disservice to tell you about in the winter, UNLESS you are the abdominal snowman.

But if you want the best rv park in NM , IMO, then go to Circle B rv park in Ruidoso NM. Take the chains and an extra few bottles of propane, cause you WILL need them.

My brother-in-law lives about 30mi. from Albuquerque and he jokes about coming to Ohio in the winter to have a warmer environment.
