GarryHea Garry, The road from I10 you can catch is at Demming US180 it is 2 lane blacktop hilly not in the mountians, that road will take you into Silver City than you can take NM 152 which is switchbacks 2 lane mountian road blacktop with Emory Pass at 8,000 ft and no guard rails ,curbs or shoulders toI25 north.Or at Demming you can take NM 26 which is hilly 2 lane blacktop road through farm land and into Hatch NM to I25 north which ever way you go remember NM has open ranges so be careful cattle may be on the roads.C U in April Rich

Thanks for the road info...I have used the Hatch road numerous times and didn't know why Google Maps showed the other way shorter in distance but longer in time....the narrow road and switch backs make a big difference...I appreciate your help and info.. See you in April.

We were just at the RV park this weekend and talked with the person at the front desk and they said we have back in spots. According to the lady we are all the way at the back end of the park. It is a very nice RV park with concrete drive and gravel spots with 2 dog runs. She also said we have quite a few people coming, can't wait to meet everyone.
