Dry camping at Santa Rosa Lake State Park New Mexico
I'm dry camped for the night at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in Santa Rosa New Mexico.
I'm in a developed site which means it has a shelter, a picnic table, and a grill, but no hookups and the cost is $10 a night.
The only problem I've run into so far is there is absolutely no Verizon reception here, of all the places I've boondocked out in the middle of nowhere I have never been without Verizon. and even though I'm only 7 miles from town Verizon is zero, zip, nada.
And since I get my Internet from Verizon using my phone as a hotspot, I don't have any Internet, so even though I'm writing this Wednesday afternoon I'm posting it Thursday.

I am learning that April and May is a great time to be traveling through southern Arizona and New Mexico. Most of the RVers have already headed north so the campgrounds are almost empty. In the developed site area that I'm in now there's only three other RVers here and I can't see any of them for my site. And it's pretty much been that way since I left Phoenix.
And the weather has been very nice other than those windy days. And even then it was still warm. Today has been in the 70s and sunny.
Thursday morning I'll be heading north and I might even make it into Colorado because I'm only about three or four hours away. Just depends on if I want to drive that far.
Friday and Saturday looks like there's going to be wind warnings out again. I'll have to keep a close check on that and figure out if I can drive in the mornings, or if I'm going to have to hunker down somewhere for a couple of days.
