Sorry to disagree. Ft. Davis state park has full hookups and is very nice - has great facilities. Great base station to do some cool day trips and then return to desert "civilization". Dang, they even have cable TV!

Boondocking is a good way to get acquainted with the area and immerse yourself in the solitude. Then again, so is the state park. We like the hiking and exploring ala natural... but seeing the area and all the different towns around there, well, nothing beats a nice, long shower in the evening after hot days exploring!

Dang, Pop - How did we miss you there after the Fiesta? We stayed at Las Cruces for a couple of days, then went straight down to Cottonwood.

That was as hot a place as I'd ever been. But it was a heckova place.
