Hacienda RV resort is a large, immaculately maintained resort campground. There are other campgrounds in the Las Cruces area, but this is by far the nicest, in my humble opinion. The cost is a bit higher than some places (almost $50/ night even at the weekly rate), but the amenities and location are well worth it.
The resort sits conveniently off of I-10, but is far enough away that the highway noise is negligible. We chose an extra long pull through site, which was more than long enough for our rig, toad and motorcycle. The pull through sites are oriented back to front, meaning that the hook-up sides for every pair face each other. A landscaped fence separates the patio sides, making every site feel private. We didn’t have a picnic table or fire ring, but the gravel site was immaculate and solid as a rock for our heavy jacks.
Our site was full hook up (50 amp electric, water, sewer). It also included cable, but we found the signal to be snowy and got much better reception using our digital antenna and Direct TV satellite. Our AT&T signal was great here and our internet connection worked adequately. The campground offered free wifi, but I found that ours worked a little better. Theirs may have been better by the office, but I didn’t try that. The campground info stated that the water pressure was high and advised using a regulator, which was no problem for us since that is our standard practice. The water tasted great after the high mineral nastiness of the Big Bend campground.
Amenities at the resort include a workout room, a fabulous hot tub, laundry facility, individual showers, restrooms, covered patio with fireplace, meeting facilities, living room area and gift shop. The amenities were secured with card key access and were immaculately clean. Not only did they accept packages, the office diligently called to notify us every time one arrived. For shopping, a super WalMart is literally across the highway with everything you might need.
There were no planned campground activities during our visit, but there are ample activities in the area including the historic town of Mesilla, the Organ Mountains, White Sands National Monument, the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Museum and the city of Las Cruces itself. During our two weeks here, we didn’t lack for things to do!
Bottom Line: Great resort and a great area. I definitely want to come back here.
