City of Rocks State Park, NM

We spent the last four days parked in the City of Rocks State Park near Silver City, NM.  Did not have any internet so I have some catching up to do!

The park is a very scenic, interesting place in the middle of no where.  30 miles either direction to the nearest cities, Silver City and Deming.  Really liked our site, we were in the middle of a yucca garden.  Big space in-between sites also.  You can hike up to about 7 miles in the park and it was fun climbing around the rocks, such interesting shapes!  But the wind.....the wind was rough and the camp host said it is always windy there.

We visited both Silver City and Deming from here and I will try to get pics of those up soon.

we liked our space and had a covered picnic table but the wind prevented us from spending much time there

no problem keeping the windmill going;)


  1. We never made it out to City of Rocks when we stayed in Silver City last year, it looks neat! But the wind...wind seems to be a spring-thing in NM.

  2. The NM state song has a line that goes: but the wind, it always blows. Got to love it!

  3. I lived in Hatch, NM when I was in high school and on any trips we ever went on to the City of Rocks the wind was always blowing. We called blowing sand New Mexico rain. Thanks for the great pictures bringing back fond memories.
