Here are some overview shots. We did not camp at the electric sites, we like it up by the rocks. Used the generator for a while before it cooled down at night. The park was not full when we were there a couple of days before the 4th. Several sites open in the electric area.

First Astronomical Observatory
Southern New Mexico is famous for its clear night skies and New Mexico State Parks established its first astronomical observatory at City of Rocks State Park. The observatory is a 12 x 16 building with a roll-off roof and is equipped with a 14" Meade LX-200 telescope. The entire facility is solar-powered and includes a 20-inch monitor, which enables visitors to view images of the planets, stars and constellations transmitted through the telescope.

Would be neat to go to one of these, but not sure if they are still having them at City of Rocks.

City of Rocks State Park lies in the Mimbres Valley of the Chihuahuan desert. The park and surrounding grassland support yucca, agave, cacti and ocotillo, while growing among the rocks are Emory and gray oak. Mule deer, roadrunners, javelinas, cactus wrens, western diamondback rattlesnakes, ground squirrels, coyotes and jackrabbits all make their home here. Therefore, one must be watchful when hiking in the rocks. Also cottontail rabbits.
