Learned so much! - My son and I stayed overnight at Rockhound on the way from Texas to Tucson. The park host, Marilyn, gave us lots of information and advice about the specimens we could look for in the park. Marian, in the Visitors Center answered all our questions. She even suggested a reasonably-priced rock shop to polish up our finds. Rockhound is a unique stop with a great staff and the nicest bathrooms we have seen in a campground!
Beautiful lake--still beautiful? - Love Heron Lake--used to visit and swim each summer. Wondering if drought has caused lake to dry up, June 1, 2018? How much mud do we have to wade through to get to the water?
A little gem in the desert - Poncho Villa State Park is a great place to visit with a nice visitor center/museum. Combine your visit with a stop at The Pink Store 2 blocks across the border for some good food and margaritas. As far as the hater reviews.... they should just get over it, history happens!
