Lordsburg, New Mexico (pop. 2,335)
We had stayed in their VFW Park in 2018. So when Amanda and I were heading east in early 2021 after wintering in Arizona, I told her about this nice little free park in Lordsburg. When we arrived we were dismayed to find it shut down, closed, no overnight camping. This was in the midst of the COVID craze and the city I guess thought travelers might spread COVID cooties.
While at Waylon Jennings Park in Texas this year a woman told me her friend had just stayed overnight at the VFW Park in Lordsburg. Well, this warranted checking out. I was pleasantly surprised to find all the COVID closure warning signs removed.
