2 come to mind. Going to Durango we stayed at a city owned RV park. The town just north of Albuquerque, about $22 per night. Very nice with neat picnic table area. Then on the way back we stayed at a casino RV park just south of Alburquerque. About $25 per night.

In Santa Fe we used the Trailer Park Ranch, it was nice and right in town so if you wanted to you could use the public transportation which stopped at the entrance.


In Taos we used Taos Valley RV Park, nice place on the edge of town but close to everything we needed. I believe you can boondock at the ski valley but it is a bit far out of town.

The one north of Albuquerque is in Bernalillo and the name is Coronado RV park. Owned by the city and really nice. The one south is Isleta Lakes and RV Park nice and open with a few small lakes and larger lots.

Taos Valley RV Park is nice. If you go east on US 64 up Taos Canyon, there is a new RV park, the Taos Canyon Stop RV park where the old Enchanted Moon RV Park was located south of US 64. They have their grand opening on July 1st. Then there are several RV Parks east of there in the Eagle Nest/Angel Fire area in the Moreno Valley. We usually Stay at Golden Eagle RV Park in Eagle Nest.

Isleta Lakes also has a 27 hole golf course, as well as the casino. All owned by DW's tribe.

Santa Fe is a day's drive from Denver with our fifth wheel. So, if we are actually staying in Santa Fe, we go to Santa Fe Skies RV Park. However, that is only on our way to or from a NM or AZ snowbirding destination, when we need electric hookups to stay warm during those 20 degree nights at 7,000'.

However, if we are in Santa Fe in fall or spring, we stay at the Corps of Engineers Cochiti Lake campground. Getting a paved, pull-thru, lakeview site with 30/50A electric and water for $11/per night (with our Federal Senior Pass) makes the short commute to Santa Fe well-worth the drive. And, because it is located south of Santa Fe, you could even use Cochiti to visit Albuquerque.

When we visit Taos, we stay at the Taos Valley RV Park.

Cochiti Lake is a very nice campground. It has been mentioned so many times on internet forums that the past couple of years it has been increasingly difficult to get a site in the newer section, Buffalo Grove. There is an older loop (juniper) that has water and electric sites. The sites are mostly back-ins. At least some of the sites on the outside of the loop are electric only. The water spigots are on the opposite side of the street. There are lots of dry camping sites that have been mostly empty every time we have been there. There is also an older campground, Tetilla Peak, on the opposite side of the lake that is open April 15 - Oct 15. that has electric and water sites. It has never been full when we have been there.

Before and after the Balloon Festival, Cochiti Lake campground will be very busy as folks use it to visit Albuquerque and the festival.

In Eagle Nest we stay at Lost Eagle RV park right in main Street. Was there 4 days ago. Small and has a great view of the lake between eagle nest and angel fire.
