Bosque birdwatchers rv park
Billy is the owner and the hands on caretaker of Birdwatchers RV Park. More than 35 years ago the family built a campground on 13 ½ acres primarily for RV hookups (35) in the midst of their property, offering water, sewer, and electrical (30/50amp) service at a reasonable price (currently $35/night). Indoor bathrooms and shower are conveniently located within 200’ for all hookups. Also, there is ample area for tent camping on the property. All payments are made by cash or check. Cell service is good throughout the property, as it is through out the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. At 4515’ elevation the property is a mix of Chihuahuan desert and Pinyon-Juniper flora. Bordered to the east by the state road NM-1 (the access from the north to the Bosque Del Apache Refuge) and to the south, the Wildlife Refuge itself. The west & northern boundaries consist of mainly mesquite & sagebrush to the north, and of junipers, pinyon pine, cottonwoods, plus 30 or so pecan trees between the campground and the NM-1 road to the Refuge. The songbirds abound. The small town of San Antonio, located less than 4 miles north on NM-1 (the old US-85) offers a gas station, general store, bar & café, and, of course, a post office. Just a 15 mile drive north on Interstate 25 brings you to the town of Socorro, founded in 1816, though the San Miguel Caltholic Church was completed around 1626. Among other attractions there are banks, restaurants, supermarkets, and most conveniences found in small towns (pop. ~ 9,000). There is no campground any closer to Bosque Del Apache with such easy access to Interstate 25 Exit 139!
