SBDC @ New Mexico State University – Alamogordo
Boot Hill RV Resort, LLC is a multi-faceted RV park in Otero County, New Mexico.
The owners, James and Cindy Livers, purchased the property in 2006 and began building the RV park from the ground up. They first visited the Alamogordo Small Business Development Center in April of 2008 and received assistance with business planning and financial projections in preparation for applying for a business loan. The loan was approved and Boot Hill’s grand opening was held that October, and two community members showed their support by parking their RV’s at Boot Hill for the first night of business.
Located just outside of Alamogordo on Highway 54/70, the park is located in a highly visible area and offers many services and amenities which include standard RV parking, short and long-term cabin rentals, storage units, laundry facilities, a horse stable and a gift shop. Other services include facility rentals and a pavilion for concerts, meetings, rallies, weddings and other events.
Boot Hill RV Resort is a member of the Good Sam Club, the Escapee’s Club, the Family Motor Coach Association, as well as the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce, and was rated by area citizens as the “Best RV Park and Campsite in Otero County.” The operation has expanded over the years to include eleven employees.
The SBDC assisted the Livers with business planning, data research and information on small business loans, and James stated that “having the SBDC as a resource to depend on was comforting and very helpful.” James and Cindy Livers are active members of the community and enjoy volunteering their time and sharing their success with others.
