Howdy, pardners! Come join us for Roundup. There'll be loads of grub and fun here at The Ranch with a hamburger cookout, frito pie feed, raffle, horse races, a shootout on our own air rifle range, blind golf cart racing, games, and more! Escapee visitors are all welcome. Y'all come!
The Original Ranch is an SKP Co-op Park of the Escapees RV Club located on the northern edge of the Chihuahuan Desert in Southeastern New Mexico between Artesia and Carlsbad.
Established in 1982 by Escapee founders Joe and Kay Peterson, The Original Ranch's mission is based on the concept of community, sharing and service.
As is fitting, the park is run by volunteers, encouraging members to form a community that shares our knowledge, skills and talents. The Ranch is also renowned for being the friendliest park in the Escapees system, as evidenced by the welcome bell that draws members to the office to welcome each new arrival with hugs and smiles.
All members are encouraged to participate in committee activities of their choice and social events. There is something here for everyone to do and to enjoy!
