We stayed in this very nice park at the outskirts of Sante Fe the third week of May of this year. The park has spacious level pull-thrus and some back-ins. Except for the main road in the park, the wide streets were unpaved. The facilities were clean, the bathrooms were huge, and the staff was very nice. There is artwork scattered throughout the park. Our site had a cement patio, although not all have them. It is obvious they are constantly improving because they were in the process of putting a patio on the site behind us.
Our one complaint is with the laundry facilities. The machines only accepted credit cards, did not provide receipts and were very pricey compared to other places we stayed on this trip. This would not prevent us from staying here again. The park is near groceries, restaurants and many attractions.
This was our base to tour:
Taos – a really interesting town in northern New Mexico.
Rio Grande Gorge Bridge – just outside Taos, this bridge offers great views of the Rio Grande Gorge
Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway – this round trip route from Taos through the towns of Questa, Red River and Eagles Nest and back to Taos offers great views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Carson National Forest.
Bandelier National Monument – ancient puebloan settlement from around 1500
Los Alamos Historical Museum / Bradbury Science Museum – the history of the Manhattan Project and more.
Santa Fe – a great place to visit, chock full of history, adobe buildings, artists shops, great restaurants and beautiful old churches. We just missed them filming the tv show Longmire.
The Turquoise Trail – a nice drive through the old mining towns of Golden, Madrid, and Cerrillos. They offer shops, museums and restaurants. The pilot episode of the tv show Longmire used the Mine Shaft Tavern in Madrid for the interior shots of the Red Pony Saloon. A set was used for later episodes.
