no reservations, but the only campground in the park is first come first serve. it's not very big, yet i always go during the week.
there is blm land not to far away that one can camp on, but depending on what your driving you may not want to run back and forth.
i've had motor homes and all kind of different vehicles in there, the worst part of the road in is washboard, i usually come in from the north if not driving a truck.
i forget the name of the town right as you hit the highway, but it's easy to figure out.
last time i took the road from i-40, threw theroux, sp?, it was pretty rough in parts, and not nearly the straight shot, coming from the other side is.
the park road is paved, and basically about a 4 mile loop. ruins all the way. there's a few side roads that go to other pueblo some are a walk in, and there's also more outside of the main park.
i like to just take the day on a bicycle, and ride the loop, stopping at all the ruins and viewpoints.
one time a while back, i drove out there, pull into the parking lot, walk up to the visitor center, and the doors locked. a sign read,' national emergency, we will be closed until firther notice.
it was the day of 9/11.
edit to clean up my mess. it's still a mess, but oh well.
