May 16 Great park by Ferguson Family
I would like to commend the park Rangers at Fort Sumner Lake. They were willing to answer questions, friendly and professional officers. I have seen Rangers that seem to not really want to talk to the public. These guys even come around the next morning and hauled off our trash when we were packing up. Professional officers. Thanks guys for being great officers. Stay safe!

April 19 Where the deer and the antelope roam by Richard & Beth Main
I love this place! It brings back fond memories of the Texas Hill Country, where I camped for all my adult life. The campground roads are lacking (bumpy and dusty), but we will be back.
