The next morning Gene showed up...
We decided we would continue on and sleep with the meth heads in Hobbs, New Mexico.
We had read the reviews about kids revving their vehicles, and could see the park is near the football field. But we decided to take a chance on a weeknight. There used to be hookups, but everything was locked and dry camping was fine for our needs. Lots of birds in the park and some small kids playing. Around 7p a car pulled up right beside our camper blasting 90s boy band ballads (several songs), followed by a parade of dumbshyte kids driving trucks/cars with loud exhaust circling the park. Not just one or two, but a dozen! It was comical at first, like we were in some weird 1950s movie scene. How do the kids afford gas?! After several hours it got old. No idea why residents who live around the park tolerate this. Sheriff drove by twice and third time we saw flashing lights. That along with a thunderstorm quieted things down around 10.30 (posted sign says park quiet hours 11p).
Prior reviewer was spot on: this is the only place for teens in Seminole to hang out on a Friday/Saturday night. Expect a loud, subwoofer banging, "my parent's bought me a new F250 I chopped the muffler off lets go burn the tires off" party spot until after 11pm.
My tip: arrive on a school night
Park is right in the center of the town, with 3-4 functional full hookups with sewer and dump. Some of the hookup stations have been hit my trucks, so they are off their concrete pad (pipes misaligned.)
Lots of Glass, Cigs, and garbage from the partying. In a pinch, I'd stay here again but then again, Waldocking vs this...its a toss up.

Ellen, you have the right approach to the decorations which I do follow myself. Living on the road, I’m not exposed to it much at all. Still, when I do see it so early on in retail stores I cannot help but to just shake my head and walk on by.
