Rockhound State Park – Tours of New Mexico
Experience this little known treasure of the New Mexican State parks, and possibly bring home a one of a kind souvenir.
In one of the least-visited areas of New Mexico lies an area of peculiarity. This area has a hidden history of small mining communities and amazing mineral deposits. Silver used to be mined extensively in this area and there are still several areas with large quantities of minerals and semi-precious gems all over the region. One of the more exact locations is Rockhound State Park, situated on part of the Little Florida Mountains southeast of Deming, New Mexico. The park is known for its encouragement of prospecting and removal of specimens. Visitors are only regulated by a fifteen-pound weight limit, where as in most national and state parks the removal of naturally occurring objects is strictly prohibited. With a welcoming campground and day-use area, an invigorating hike, and a small wealth of different minerals to peruse. Rockhound State Park is an often overlooked treasure that we visit on our tours of New Mexico. So come with us on our small group tours and see if you can find a souvenir to take home.
