Rusty's RV Ranch, Rodeo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Rusty's is one of the reasons that you go RVing. Close to the middle of nowhere, surrounded by spectacular mountains along with very well-maintained and creatively designed facilities, incuding aviaries, bird pond, clubhouse and dog park. We camped at Rusty's RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

An excellent stop on the way to Bisbee, Douglas, Tombstone and Tucson. Very close to the Chiricahua Nat'l Monument and the Geronimo Surrender Monument. A popular stop for birders, rockhounds and astronomy buffs. This is not a luxury resort but a very special place for the more adventurous. All sites are good, but the views on the western edge are the most spectacular.

Albuquerque Central KOA, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

We did a mix of hookup and storage so we could travel back home for a week. They were completely accommodating and flexible, friendly and helpful. That said, it is a very large RV park, right next to the highway and very much a parking lot. It is also a good 20 minutes outside of central Albuquerque and in a rundown neighborhood of light industry. The park itself is very well run, good security and great facilities. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Albuquerque is a surprisingly nice city with a very interesting mix of neighborhoods, museums and restaurants. It is worth exploring and not just a transition overnight to the surrounding area.

Sierra Village Lodge and RV Park, Taos, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

The aging owner of this park is obviously having a hard time keeping it up. Nonetheless, we really enjoyed our stay here. It's a short drive into Taos, yet wonderfully snuggled within rugged National Forest. We were there shortly after it reopened for the season and recent freezes meant that the bathrooms and water were not yet available. We had the whole place practically to ourselves and enjoyed it immensely. It felt like we were back in time to the 50s. We camped at Sierra Village Lodge and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Taos is a fun town and the Enchanted Loop is a wonderful drive through a wide range of countryside: ranchland, farmland and mountains. This park is actually along the drive. Not a great place to be if you want to ski, but perfect for hiking the mountains above Taos.

Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park, Ojo Caliente, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

The reasons to stay here are the spa and trails. RVers are 2nd class citizens otherwise. You pay a high price for (very) poorly designed sites that are too small with hookups on the wrong side and hidden away behind the employee housing. Then you have to pay $20 to use the dump station and a similar amount to enter the spa. We went full in on the spa (private pool, massage, dinner and other extras) so found the RV situation annoying. That said, we were by the river with good shade and quiet. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Chaco Culture National Historic Park, Gallo Campground, Nageezi, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $15.00

This is a sad town. Historically, one of the Forts on the route between San Antonio and El Paso, the otherwise attractive main street is nothing but vacant store fronts and the site of the Fort is windblown and ghostly. The main drag is full of economy hotels for the truck trade.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large, very professionally managed RV park. Lots of people, lots of RVs. Open, flat and exposed to the elements, including sometimes noxious propane smells from nearby oil rigs. Services are, however, very good. Propane, tire air, lots of waste facilities, lots of local information and history, nice shop even a bbq restaurant delivery service. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Carlsbad Caverns are a must, truly one of the great natural wonders of the world. Very well run, but with massive crowds. Think Disneyland. We just showed up, and it was fine, except for the 45 minute wait on the road to park and the 2 hour wait to catch the elevator ride back up. Note: this wait can exceed 3 hours. However, the KOA is on the opposite side of the town of Carlsbad from the Caverns. That said, it is very obvious that the KOA is far, far superior to the other RV parks in the area.

City of Rocks State Park, Faywood, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We LOVED this park! Very limited hook-ups. We boondocked within the rocks, completely private. Reasonably level in a pull-through. This is a magical, magical place with a night sky that is nothing like anything we have every experienced. Nice bike and walking trails. Roughly halfway between Silver City and Carlsbad. We camped at City of Rocks State Park in a Travel Trailer.

While there is a very nice visitor center, there are no other services of civilization within a 45 minute drive. Come stocked for your stay. Only allowed to run generator from 7 to 10 pm (although given the time of year we didn't need to use it). Showers have very poor water pressure and water is quite alkaline. Can be windy and dusty.

Manzano's RV Park, Silver City, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We came in at the last minute and got a very nice site (17). back and side had unobstructed views with no sense that we were in a commercial park. "Clubhouse" had a large library of DVDs and books, clean bathrooms, game room, kitchen and laundry. Gravel, close to level. Dirt road entrance with a pretty tight circle for a large motorhome, but really, a great place to stay. We camped at Manzano's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Silver City is a slightly down at the heels, historic town with an artistic bent. Colorful main street and attractive regional university. What really makes this is the extensive National Forest with wonderful drives and the Gila National Monument as the feature. Town has all the resources needed for restocking including a very nice Albertson's and Walmart.

Lost Alaskan RV Park, Alpine, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Great spot that found a place for us during Spring Break! What makes this notable are the trees providing shade in a desert region where this is a true rarity. Close to Marfa, Fort Davis and McDonald Observatory at the north end of the Big Bend region. Alpine itself is a terrific little town. Easily enough to do in the area to keep you busy for several days. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mystic Springs Cove (Airstream ONLY), McDavid, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

Although it is relatively primitive, all of the sites feature electricity, water and waste. It is owned by the local Wally Byam unit (Pensacola). We were here over the New Year's Weekend and were very happy to be in such a quiet, pretty spot abutting state wildlife management preserves. The hosts were delightful and full of good local information. While the sites are situated very close to one another, there were very few people here so it was quite spacious. We camped at Mystic Springs Cove (Airstream ONLY) in a Travel Trailer.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very popular park because it is within the Charleston city limits. We were there during the Holiday light show which is a big deal for the area drawing thousands of people over the course of several weeks. It was fun, but did mean there was some heavy traffic in the evenings. The park has the best dog park we have ever seen: very large and including water access. All in all, well run and attractive, but reserve in advance. We camped at James Island County Park in a Travel Trailer.
