RV Resorts in Los Cruces, New Mexico

RV Resorts in Los Cruces, New Mexico
Las Cruces is Spanish for "The Crosses" and the town got its name from all the wooden crosses scattered across the landscape to mark the burial sites of settlers who were on the losing side of encounters with Apaches. Those who stay at RV parks and campgrounds in Las Cruces are staying in the same area where Billy the Kid once roamed. Unlike William Bonney, however, you can enjoy hiking the trails around Las Cruces without the sheriff on your tail.

Best View RV Park

Best View RV Park hosts 79 full-hookup sites with 30/50-amp electric connections. Each site has its own picnic table, grill and shade tree. This Las Cruces park has a view of the Organ Pipe Mountains and has amenities like showers, bathroom, laundromat and an RV supply store. Kids can enjoy the playground while you're busy washing your vehicle at the self-serve wash. The swimming pool is open from May to September and you and your pooch can enjoy the dog walk. Attach your bikes to your RV and bring them so you can take advantage of the nearly 61-mile-long Mesilla Valley Cruise bike ride. This relatively flat trail has an elevation change of just 200 feet, but offers historic views along the way--like that of a 19th century fort.
