Hot Tub, Blue Skies, and Big Rocks at Roadrunner RV Park

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

Roadrunner RV Park in Deming has it all. With its wide streets and long pull-throughs, the park welcomes larger recreational vehicles (RVs) and vehicles with trailers or boats hauled behind. Overnight RV parking or tent camping is offered, as well as weekly and monthly rates for those times when you're just having too much fun to head back home.

There is lots to do at Roadrunner. You can walk your dog, luxuriate in the hot tub under the beautiful blue skies, or bring your television outside and watch shows with the free cable provided with each RV space rental. The park also offers propane fills, supplies, and laundry facilities. There's even a professional dog groomer on site for Fido's unruly mane.

Whether by RV or tent, people are drawn to Mother Nature's dirt and fresh air. "I think it's part of our DNA; after all this is how civilization started in a sense," says owner Liz Stager. "There is nothing better than getting away from your everyday life and just unwinding and becoming one with nature."

And what fun you'll have hiking and rockhounding while in the Deming area. Check out City of Rocks State Park, Rockhound State Park, and Basin Range Volcanics Geolapidary Museum. Stager advises, "This terrain can be dangerous, even to natives and the most skilled outdoorsman. Caution is always a great thing to have."

I, personally, love the Gila Forest," exclaims Stager. "My family and I try to go as often as possible. We love riding motorcycles through the mountain roads, love day fishing and even camping when time permits. Such a beautiful national forest. You just have to see it and experience it!"

View some small-town Western history in Deming. The Luna Mimbres Museum and Custom House is the start and end of the historic downtown's self-guided walking tour. All 16 of the historic buildings on the tour are listed on the State Historic Register, with four also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

After your stay at Roadrunner RV Park, take a drive and be enchanted with the rest of New Mexico. "The entire state has something to offer any outdoorsman from mountain terrain to high desert," notes Stager. "Breath-taking views and some of the most amazing sunrises and sunsets the world has to offer."
