Rockhound State Park
|The state parks in New Mexico are some of the nicest state campgrounds I have seen in any state. The one here at Rockhound State Park is no exception. Ranging from sites without utilities to RV sites, this campground also has a playground for kids and a short, but interesting trail. This campground at the base of the Florida Mountains is also unique in that unlike all of the other parks in the country, you are encouraged to take up to 15 pounds of rocks home with you.|
