Traveling to New Mexico

Hi all,
I have a 2 week trip planned to Red River New Mexico and Durango Colorado. Looks like NM has a quarantine in place if staying, but the campground says they are open for business. Anyone else going there and do you have concerns about this?

Thanks,
Legman

i'm following this as we have some reservations in NM, but they are still several weeks out. i have seen a couple of articles that say they are restricting stays to NM residents only. i'm unsure how long this craziness will continue.

The craziness will continue until there is an effective vaccine or the virus runs out of available hosts.

According to the New Mexico website, you've got to self-quaranteen for 14 days or the length of your stay and wear a mask. That includes rvers.

We stayed longer in Alabama because some states on our way home did not allow overnight stays. 14 day minimum. Did not feel like staying for 14 days or parking lot stays. When we were able to overnight, if need be we could have stayed a few days.

I am in NM right now and am a former resident of the state. Do yourself a favor and avoid the state at all costs intil they replace the idiot in Santa Fe.

If NM is like other states they seem to have an endless supply of idiots for replacements.

Requires 14 days self quarantine if staying that long or longer in State.


Or self quarantine for the period in the state if less than 14 days.


Doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

Iím in NM and I can tell you that we have an idiot in Santa Fe for sure. The edict is that all visitors must quarantine for 14 days or the length of your stay if less than 14 days. But thereís no one enforcing this and thereís no way to enforce it. Masks are required everywhere but not everyone uses them. All state parks and state campgrounds are closed to out of staters. All dine-in is closed (again). Otherwise everything is pretty much normal. Oh yeah and itís hot as hell here too. 😉

We are going in a couple of weeks to Red River. We called around up there, including the Chamber of commerce, and they said to "come on"...just bring a mask and you will be fine. Most everything is open they said.
So here we go!

All state parks and state campgrounds are closed to out of staters- is this true for Arizona also?

Yes, all NM state campgrounds are closed to out of staters. They are checking driver's license and license plates. Just keep abreast of the rules as they change. It is what it is.
But all private RV parks are not. But good luck in finding one with an open slot. They are currently restricted to 50% occupancy, but most are simply not renting out tent spots and cabins so they have more RV slots available.
We are in Ruidoso NM at a private RV park with a water/electric site only. Had to get out of the heat w/o leaving the state. All the other parks we called in the area are booked solid until the end of September.

We were going there on Friday up until today when we cancelled a 6 week stay in Ruidoso. The governor reinstated severe restrictions and we really don't want to go and be harassed by police with a potential $100 fine if we make a mistake accidentally. We're from Texas and we can't go to state parks - one of our reasons for going was to hike in the parks. Lake restrictions. Some golfing restrictions that make golf a whole lot less attractive. Can't eat inside at a restaurant and can't take our dog on an outside patio anywhere we like going in the past. No telling what she will think of next. We are looking at alternatives right now, but NM will not get our $$$. Just us; go if you want to, of course.

No, this is not the case in AZ for out of state RVers although there are some restrictions. Here is the website: https://azstateparks.com/coronavirus

Coming into Arizona will not pose a problem but depending on where you will be traveling back too might.

Hope this helps

It appears that all our State and National Forest sites are filled with people who planned on vacationing in Canada and can't get across the border.

Ran into several people in that situation last week. Good luck getting a space in most of our State Parks unless you want one day here and one day there.

Compared to the two idiot governors to the immediate east and west of NM, she looks pretty damn smart, and responsible. Just saying.

X2. I might not like all the restrictions, but I have to admit our (NM) numbers look lots better than those states around us
I feel bad for the restaurants that had to close indoor dining again, but most have put in outdoor patios or have beefed up their take-out service to get around that.
The rules that affect me aren't that bad, it is what it is. You can either rant and rave, or just deal with it and go on. We are having a good time just being alive. We are also very thankful to have an RV to get out in. Just takes a little more planning now.
