Comments: A small, wooded park... quiet, not as gloomy as Hyde Memorial, and the closest state park to Albuquerque (61 miles). But watch out for insect pests. In June it's tiny biting flies that come right through window screens; in October it's big, slow-moving stink bugs that crawl into every nook and cranny, only to emerge months later. Choose your season, though, and this park is a gem.
Verizon internet service is good here, if you have a cellular booster amp: 4 bars of LTE signal as of late 2014.
