Summer is almost here and New Mexico has so much to offer for the RV enthusiast and outdoors person. The Rocky Mountains spans almost the entire west side of thes state. If you love hiking, trail riding, kayaking, hot mineral springs, birding, hot air ballooning, breathtaking landscapes, art, music and dance as well as the heritages of Indian, Anglo and Hispanic cultures, then you’ll love The Land of Enchantment.
There is much to say about this lifestyle, but today I’m sharing with you a list I’ve compiled of the northwest portion of New Mexico RV parks worth staying at and checking out the area further. In upcoming posts, I will offer more RV parks in the rest of New Mexico and how to make your RV lifestyle a blast!
Ruins Road RV Park
Close to Aztec National Monument. Pitch your tent on a thick blanket of bluegrass and sleep like a baby or picnic, fish or relax along the tranquil bank of the Las Animas River.
Los Campos de Santa Fe RV Resort
Open all year, this resort is only 4.5 miles from the historic Santa Fe Plaza, one of America’s most popular vacation destinations.
Monte Verde RV Park and Campground
Want to escape the heat or ski the winter snow in Angel Fire?
This is your home base for mountain fun!
Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa
Steeped in myth and legend, these ancient springs have been a gathering place and source of healing for hundreds, even thousands of years. The RV park is under cottonwoods for a private, peaceful setting.
Chaco Culture National Historical Park
One might think, near the end of 20 some miles of dirt road,that this site is too far off the beaten path. But, for anyone interested in architectural design or the history of prehistoric Indians, Chaco Canyon is a place to stimulate and reward the imagination.
Heron Lake State Park
Located near the Continental Divide, Heron Lake is over 6,000 acres and is ideal for camping, hiking, fishing and sailing. The most agreeable weather is from May to October.
Bandelier National Monument
The road to Bandelier takes you through some of the most spectacular country in New Mexico, offering enormous vistas of mountains, mesas, cliffs, and canyons. The monument itself covers nearly 50 square miles, almost all of it undisturbed wilderness.
