Albuquerque Central KOA, Albuquerque – Excellent (see the article)
Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post, Albuquerque – Clean, affordable, staff was not overly friendly, wi-fi was poor. Park has a clean pool, a gift shop and laundry. Located next to Camper World. It is not in Albuquerque but on the outskirts with open countryside surrounding it.
Los Suenos de Santa Fe RV Park, Santa Fe – Very good (see the article)
Riana Campground, Abiquiu Lake – The Riana campground check-in was easy and the camp hosts were exceptionally friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable of the area. The sites are spacious and a decent distance from one another with electric and water. There is a sewer dump nearby in the park. All sites have grills and shaded picnic tables. Bathrooms with showers are located at the back of the campground. The current site fee as of this writing is only $16 per night. There are only 13 sites with water and electric so in busy seasons, reservations might be suggested. Developed yet primitive sites and tent sites are also available. Weekends are crowded in peak season. My only problem is there are no doors on the public restroom/showers and one of the women’s showers is directly in front of the main door with only a curtain to close it off. It does not feel safe showering and children should be escorted to the restrooms as they are a fair walk from the sites. Due to the fact that this is a lake, there is heavy local traffic on the weekends. If you want to enjoy the peace of Abiquiu Lake, try to go during the week.
Cottonwood RV Park, Espanola – This is a small park just off the highway near the Cinemas. There is a fairly large hill to maneuver down but it is quiet, wooded and has views of the mountains. The manager was a friendly make-yourself-at-home kind of gal. They have a self-check-in if you arrive late. Showers and small laundry. It is a little isolated though just off the highway. Affordable rates. Wi-fi was difficult. Coffee shop nearby. Fully shaded and very peaceful.
Acoma Sky City Casino Hotel RV Park, Acoma – Excellent (see the full article)
RJ RV Park, Truth or Consequences, NM – This was just a stopover for us but the owners were very friendly and helpful. The office has a rec room with activities. Showers were clean and private. We were unable to use the wi-fi. In warm months rattlesnake are a big concern. We encountered one under a bush while walking the dogs.
There is a foothill area for rock-hounding but again, beware the rattlesnakes. Very affordable rates.
Silver City RV Park, Silver City – This is a clean park located just five blocks from downtown. Close to restaurants and shopping. Affordable rates. There is a coffee/donut shop in the office. There is a large, fenced dog run. Showers are clean and modern. Full laundry room. Tent and picnic area. Park is located on the famed Silver City “Big Ditch.” Well-shaded. The park also has three cabin rentals. Wif-fi is very good.
