Living Desert SP might be fun for the kids, at least the zoo part (not the botanical)

I got beer, except on Sundays!

Been here 4 months, haven't figured it out yet.

Bottomless Lakes east of town, no trees, we will camp there eventually. Brantley Lake, don't keep the fish!!

Nice town, way more churches than liquor licenses. Quad riding is available, bird sanctuary at Bitter Lake.

We visited Roswell this past fall - alien museum was worth about an hour... Nice Visitor's Center in town - I'm sure they will have LOTS of ideas for the area! Carlsbad Caverns was very nice. We didn't get to the Smokey Bear memorial (next time...) - but it sounded nice. I think White Sands/Alamagordo would be way too much of a drive just for the day - but if you overnight go to Oliver Lee SP - it was beautiful area. We did stay at Brantley (sp?) Lake SP for a night - just north of Carlsbad - POURING rain - so didn't do much of anything there except eat and sleep...but the campground seemed nice. ST

Lots of good info. here. The DW wants to explore NM this year so I did a search and found this thread. We're looking at mid to late September I think, after school is back in to avoid the crowds. Is this a good time to visit? Would your advice still hold up? I'll check out the links you posted.

It will just be the two of us plus the fuzzy one, no kids.

Speaking of Bitter Lake, this story just came out yesterday:

Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands is awesome. Consider the Carlsbad KOA. It is a great campground. Outdoor heated pool, nice flat pull throughs, 50/30 amp, wifi, cable. Great gift shop and if you like they have dinner that they will bring to your site. We had the beef brisket and it was to die for. The kids might enjoy the pool. Have a great trip.

We just spent time there, stayed at the Trailer Village RV Park (you can see our rating on our blog). Most sights have been pointed out; but we enjoyed the Bitter Lake National wildlife Refuge, the visitor center has a number on interactive exhibits for kids. Lincoln is a gem; lots of great history untarnished by commercial enterprise. Don't mention the movie "Young Guns" to Betty in the visitor center, she'll give you a lecture (friendly) on the real story. You can continue on from Lincoln to Capitan and Valley of the Fires, but I wouldn't waste time on White Oaks "ghost town". We always enjoy a visit to Sunspot, and it's very educational for the kids. If you drive from Sunspot to Timberon you'll likely see wild turkey, mule deer, and sometimes elk. It's a great part of the country, but most of the things to do are west of Roswell.

Nice picture at Black Mesa. I live at Perryton Tx so I figure I'm not too far from that area. Do you go through Guymon OK. Years ago, my grandparents lived in the Cherokee area. George and Replogle. I've thought about Black Mesa, just no sure where its at.
