It's a really cool place to stop in and see ancient lava flows. You won't spend more than a few hours (if that) hiking the paved path, but it really is something special to see. My kids thought so, too.

If you are driving near the area or are looking for a day trip from Ruidoso this is an interesting place. It is an ancient lava field with a nice walking path. Clean facilities.

Great facilities and very nice hosts. $12-18 for undeveloped to electric site

There's a paved path that leads you through the volcanic lava flow, and with the desert plants growing in and among the lava, it's a sight to behold! Amazing landscape of black rock-maybe lava. Deep ravines, sharp edges and green cactus make for a very unusual landscape. The self-guided tour is thorough and just the right length to get a feel for the place without overdoing the content. Nice spot in the middle of nowhere!
