Subi & The 5

Santa Rosa Lake State Park – Santa Rosa, New Mexico


We headed east on I-40 through Albuquerque to the eastern part of New Mexico. Along the way we stopped at Camping World in Albuquerque for a few parts and then headed east and exited I-40 to drive the New Mexico Musical Road near Tijeras. Not quite the loud music we thought it would be but it was kind of fun.


We headed on to Santa Rosa and on to the State Park.


Campground: Rocky Point Campground
Location: Santa Rosa, New Mexico
Site: A14 (back in)
Cost: $14
Services: E (30 AMP)
Comments: A small campground with 2 loops and mostly large, level sites and covered picnic tables. Many sites have views of the lake. There are two other campgrounds in the park, a primitive campground called Los Tanos with tent sites and another one  called Juniper Campground.  We thought Rocky Point (either loop) was the nicest campground with the largest level sites.


There is a dam at the southern end of the lake along with an observation point that you can climb up onto and get some wonderful views of the lake and the surrounding countryside.
