Tucumcari The Gateway to New Mexico

Although we have arrived at Petrified Forest National Park and will begin working our volunteer positions tomorrow I want to digress on this posting back to our driving trip from our home outside of Dallas Texas, through New Mexico and on to Arizona to let any readers know who may be driving out west this summer of the opportunity to camp for free at the San Jon Municipal Park just east of the town of Tucumcari.  It will be dry camping in a large flat parking lot overlooking the park which does offer covered picnic tables and a little shade.  Tucumcari itself does have 6 RV Parks including a KOA. Nearby the next town driving west is Santa Rosa offering just one RV Park,a Good Sam at exit 277.  This is important to know because there is no more camping until you arrive in Albuquerque more than 100 miles away.
