Pancho Villa State Park has a great museum on the history of the area and 63 camping sites. 30 and 50 amp, E/W and water only and tent sites are available.
If you plan on spending time in New Mexico the state park pass is a bargain, out of state visitors pay $225 for a year and only $4 for e/w, $8 for full hook ups and $0 for boon-docking sites. You can stay up to 14 days. I have stayed at 2 parks so far this year and my pass is half paid for.
The pioneer museum in the old depot admission is by donation and worth it.
Make sure you stop by the Patio Cafe for breakfast or lunch homemade food at its best.

I had a wonderful day in Mexico and plan on returning to Columbus.
