I stopped here twice on a cross-country trip. Camped for the night. Nice campsites. Not very crowded.

Wanted a place to be outside, walked trails with our dogs. Saw some jack rabbits. Very clean park, great place to have a picnic over looking the dam and rio grand river. Call ahead to book shelter.

We pulled in around 8:30 in the dark. But no worries! They have an envelope system. It was a nice clean park with good roads, a beautiful lake and awesome views! And a huge dam, and geocaches and..... Just a very nice park.

We spent a quiet night here on our way out to California. The campground was clean and the hosts were helpful. We had nice conversations with several of our neighbors. The scenery was beautiful and at night it is as quiet as any place I've ever been.

Rocky Point Campground at Santa Rosa Lake was utterly delightful! Much of it was closed for utility repairs, but there were still several spots open. We tent camped with the RVers so we had a nice concrete shelter and table, lots of cedar trees, electric and water (lightweights, I know). The bathrooms and showers were pretty clean and our campground... More

One of the nicest state parks I have stayed in. Very well kept with many amenities to include power and water. Nice restrooms. A very nice setting at $14.00 per night.

Came to the lake in the evening and how beautiful - just peaceful - breeze blowing across the lake - watch the sunset - even saw some deers by the campground.

I never really paid too much attention to the lake. I mean, I saw it there, but I tend to arrive at night and leave early. They have pit toilets and the sites are spaced reasonably. Much cheaper than lodging, especially if you're carrying your own accommodations.
