Spread across 33 acres in Elephant Butte, New Mexico, Cedar Cove RV Park is a pretty park with 128 sites. These sites are distributed across five levels and are reasonably spacious, as you'd expect from the park's motto: "No rig too big." There are pull-through and back-in sites available, as well as premium RV sites that boast their own concrete pad, storage shed, and shade awning.
The good news is that well-behaved pets are welcome at Cedar Cove RV Park, but there is a limit of two pets per site. Portable pet pens are permitted, but pets must be kept leashed and never left unattended. And if you fail to clean up after your pooch, you'll be hit by a $10 fine -- all the more reason to make use of the pet waste stations found on all levels of the park.
Dogs are not allowed in certain areas of the park, such as the clubhouse, laundry, or bathhouse. However, there is a special off-leash area where your pooch can run free -- the "Doggie Corral". Found on the top level, this is the spot where your pooch can stretch their paws and meet some new furry friends. While this area isn't filled with lush green grass -- no surprise considering where this park is located -- it's still a very welcome inclusion for dog owners.
Prices range from $40 to $50 a night. Restrooms are clean and well-maintained, while there's also a fitness center, game room (including pool table) and even a nail salon to help you relax and unwind. Unfortunately, there's only limited shade in the park, so make sure your pet always has somewhere to escape the sun.
The park also offers a range of park models and RV rentals you can hire if you don't have your own RV. Pets are welcome in the rentals, but an extra $75 cleaning charge applies.
If you're looking to explore the local area, you might like to go four-wheeling in the nearby mountains, play a round at the 18-hole Sierra Del Rio Golf Course (just three miles away), or sample a wide variety of watersports at Elephant Butte Lake State Park. There's plenty to experience and enjoy near Cedar Cove RV Park, so why not take some time to stop and smell the roses?
