Questions about The Bosque del Apache

So I'm headed to The Bosque del Apache in November sometime. Can someone give me suggestions of inexpensive places to stay close by there? Also I will be taking my K20D's along with the DA*300 and the Sigma 50-500mm are these going to give me enough reach for photographing the birds or do I need something a little longer?

I have never been there, but here is a page that addresses photography, where to stay and what else to see....

I must admit that I had to Google it, as I'd never heard of the place before.

But what I read quickly about it, sounds like you will have a great time, I'm quite jealous.

I drove through there a few years ago (pre-Pentax for me) and stayed in Socorro, a nearby city (college town). Sorry, I don't recall which motel, but cheap ones abounded then. Socorro town has its odd fascinations. Don't miss the town park with the statue made from a fragment of the Trinity nuke. And especially don't miss the Very Large Array, 50 miles west of Socorro. Have fun!

Thanks interested_observerfor the links. I have been to plenty of links about the place. But I was wondering if anyone from the website had actually been there that could give me a a hands on view of it.
