Caballo Lake State Park


Framed against the Caballo Mountains, this lake boasts an array of water recreation, such as boating, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, swimming, and fishing. Choose from 170 campsites, with plenty of sites with utility hookups for RVs. There’s just as much to do off the water while hiking, horseback riding, birding and picnicking.

Great place with scenic vistas! Well kept RV sites. Only problem was the 50 amp breaker would trip when we were running both ACs to cool it down (98 degrees outside), over 90 inside RV trailer! Just used 1 AC and it was okay. If Google maps says take Exit 63 off I-25, follow Brown signs. DON’T follow map directions. Best to take Exit 59.

Showers were nasty, couldn't keep the water on because everytime the person in the stall next to me hit the water it would shut mine off. Sites were small in appaloosa, people set up camp there and made it look like a homeless camp. People in the office were nice but I won't be staying again.

Dates of stay: 28 Feb - 2 Mar 18. Nice park, short drive from I-25 (Exit 63). Review and pictures pertain to the north portion of the park, I didn't venture into the Percha Flats or Riverside camping areas. Palomino, Appaloosa, and Stallion campgrounds fairly similar with respect to the size of the camping spots, shelters, fire pits, electric hook ups. Most all are easily pull through spots. Most of the spots in these area are under the reservation system and have power. The area was quite full, probably 80-85% occupied. I think a lot of people stay for the 14 days, skip a day, and reserve the same spot for another 14 days. I elected to stay at the lake front just south of boat ramp. That area is considered "primitive" but it still had ground-level fire rings and picnic tables...easy walk to a vault toilet and water spigot. Steps by the vault toilet take you up to Palomino campground for comfort station/showers. Lots of thorns / "goat heads" off the beaten paths/grassy areas. Fairly rocky shoreline, but still neat to explore if you are okay with lots of rocks. Road to beach primitive area easily drive-able with 2wd vehicle.

Nice and quiet primitive camping on the beach. Had the whole beach to ourselves on a January weekend. Very friendly and helpful rangers at the office! Would camp here again.
