Mission in El Paso is overrated, recommend Hacienda RV & Rally Resort in Los Cruces lots of big rig sites, we have stayed there often including a week last February - our neighbor was a 45ft Prevost

Sorry about he mistake. El Paso, TX. Stupid mistake. Still looking for a nicer place to stay for about 4-5 days. Wife for some reason wants to stay there.
Fixed it.


What are you planning to do there? That might lead to better suggestions.

We stopped for an overnight a few months back (gaslight square park). It was fine (save, comfortable easy in/out) but nothing to write home about.


Have no clue. Wife keeps wanting to stay there. My job is to find a place, her's to find what to do.

I worked in El Paso for about 2 years. Don't quite know what you can find to do for 3 days. Military town due to Fort Bliss. Juarez across the border is too dangerous. In southeastern New Mexico you can do Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe National Park.

AGREED! I would put El Paso at the very bottom of my places to visit list. Carlsbad Caverns is ~~2 hours east of there. That's as close as I would go to El Paso!

If an hour away is close enough, your rig would fit most of the sites at Pancho Villa State Park in NM.

Yeah, if you include sites within a 2-3hr drive, sure, Carlsbad, White Sands, Las Cruces, Guadalupe Mountains, Etc...

But if that's the case, no need to stay in El Paso.

Without some idea of what the plan is, it's a complete shot in the dark as to what is appropriate. Maybe the OP could ask the wife what she wants to see.

The NM state line is also the northern line of El Paso. You can get shot in either one, take your pick.

Probably because 80% of residents have a license to carry! [emoticon]

I'd recommend staying in Las Cruces and doing a day trip or two to ElPaso.
