There’s An Awesome Rock Ranch Hiding In New Mexico And You’ll Want To Visit

Children seem to be natural rockhounds and it’s not difficult to see why. Rocks come in all textures, shapes, colors, patterns, and some even have a translucence or a hint of sparkle. In honor of rock collectors of all ages, we’re going to check out one cool state park here in New Mexico that not only has some pretty views but also some pretty rocks that you can take home.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Rockhound State Park is located at 9880 Stirrup Road, about 7 miles southeast of Deming. You can find details about the hours of operation, park announcements, and more by visiting the New Mexico State Parks website.
