KBUG (Know Before You Go). Max Stickers/Thorns - Consider their paws. Bold Coyotes. UL gas and supplies available. Drop & Hops (folks that store RVs in full hookup sites). There are only 8 sights and there is a great open parking lot adjacent to the park where rigs could be left unattended. Throughout our visit half the sights had RVs present with personnel unaccounted for. We wished to stay but we were forced out due to lack of availability. This is unacceptable. HC

This facility is very nice and quiet. All in all a great location as long as you know what you are getting, distance from Las Cruces and Alamogordo. The check in process has a lot to be desired. It would have been nice to get a map of the installation, told where the dumpsters and recycle bins were located. The folks at Outdoor Rec were nice but just not very helpful. When asked about a map, I was told to go to the gift shop, they might have one. Also my reservation wasn't on the "board" but was still on someone's desk. Good thing I was the only person to show up on Sunday. Since I've been here and know the ropes I would go back. Maybe they could take some lessons from Agave Gulch on how to check someone into the park.

A.B. left this review using the Directory software: - We were on site #1. Nice pull thru next to the activity center. Enjoyed our short stay. Excellent museum plus visited the Biosphere. Very windy in this area but the price was right. Just wish they had diesel fuel on board so plan your trip accordingly! Bx&Comm.well stocked

Directions are good, photos are still current. Arrived on Sunday night there were four empty sites, one camper in overflow (15Amp on street). No signs or instruction to be found, office closed on weekends. We took an empty site and went to Outdoor Rec in morning to pay and stay another night. Outdoor Rec has a small amount of supplies, seemed to be unorganized to me. They did not have any available sites for another night had reservations coming in. Did not use the bathrooms or showers so can't rate. Rec room locked up. Cell phone good, wifi none. Nice little park, which is what we like, quiet place to stay. Suggest you make reservation before driving out. $10 a night full hookup.

We frequent this location, so obviously we enjoy it! The golf course is in excellent condition. The laundry, on the other hand, while the machines seem to be pretty new, the building is dirty & the A/C (swamp cooler) either wasn't working or has been shut down for the Fall/Winter. It was not too bad as it was only in the upper 70's, but it is an unsatisfactory condition. It was in big need need of being cleaned, too. It would also be nice if they had a rack to hang cloths when one takes them out of the drier. Never used head or shower, so what ever has been previously reported is probably the case. There are only 8 sites & most of them are usually occupied, so make a reservation if you want to come here. I drove by the Ft. Bliss RV park Sunday (10/14) & it looked full, too. Snowbirds must be on the move!

A first!!!!!!!!!!!! MWR REDUCED the fee for staying here to $10 a night! It had been $10 however it went up to $15 for about a yr or so, but they've lowered it back to $10! WSMR as well as Ft. Bliss have dropped the DOD decal requirement, too. Since I don't get to many USN or MC bases I don't know if they still require the DOD sticker.........I'd be interested on feed back as to the status of USN &/or MC bases & their DOD decal status. There does NOT seem to be any homesteaders here even though there is a LOT of new construction on the base. If you approach the base from from El Paso on the "back" road through Ft. Bliss it has almost been completely reconstructed & the speed limit has increased to 65 mph. A real short cut! Played the little 9 hole golf course & it has really greened up for February. Wind this time of year sucks, but we don't have Spring in NM, it's WIND season!

C.H. left this review using the Directory software: - We spent 5 days here and generally agree with previous reviews. We had called the day prior to our arrival to make a reservation; that turned out not be necessary - the campground was empty when we arrived. While checking in at Outdoor Rec, I inquired about the showers and was assured they were operational. Not!! Although there was hot water in the sinks, there was no water, hot or cold, in the showers. We enjoyed a visit to the Missile Museum, particularly the inside displays dealing with the a-bomb test. Essentials were available at the small post exchange and commissary and there is a gas station. We came in from Las Cruces over the pass, but since we going to El Paso when we left, we took NM 213 south through the vast Fort Bliss ranges to the Texas line - a very good road that shortens the distance between WSMR and Fort Bliss considerably. We would probably stay here again.
