The owner stated the 50 amp service didn't work and the 30 amp is shady so $42 per night+tax is too high for this park. Anyway I guess the new owner is trying, but so far no improvements have been made.The Wi-Fi is spotty and works sometimes. We will not be back and one more thing I noticed, the 30 amp plugs have no disconnect at the post. The electrical is in need of upgrading. - firesafety912

Previous owners have retaken the campground. it still lacks the luster of a well maintained park, but the owners are trying. The check-in went smooth and the owner is very friendly. Although the campground is for sale the owners are keeping it operating. - firesafety912

The overnight fees have increased to $40 per night. If you want Wi-Fi, it is $10 per month or $3 per night. Too much money for what you get. We have stayed here off and on for the past 10 years and the owner just keeps going up on the fees. We won't be coming back. - firesafety552

Nice quiet park across the street from town. Wi-Fi worked good and good water pressure and electric was good. We stayed a month so price shows that. Not too close to other campers where we parked. Friendly owners. Lots are level. We would stay again. Have pot luck dinners once a week. Rate is based on monthly stay. - neilontheroad

Thought this campground was overpriced. Great view of the lake, but very basic sites. Host was friendly and showed us to our site. Restrooms and laundry were very clean. - mike and laura

What everyone else has said plus...Watch out for the bear! Don't leave anything out especially small dogs. Don't miss the Boardwalk Restaurant. White tablecloth first class dining. Great food. Closed Thursdays. One block west. I'll be back when I have more time. - Andy Asberry

After boondocking for a week at the Eagle Nest Lake State Park (just across the fence from here) we needed a place to put our 36' MH & toad while we did wash, cleaned up, etc. The other commercial parks in the area were extremely expensive and one, you will pass it as you enter the State Park, is darn right dismal! West Lake is managed and priced as a 'hobby park' as the owner puts it...no restrooms or other stuff to clean-up. Some weeds, nothing special, your neighbor is close...but it is quiet, clean and functional. We spent 2 nights to get done what we had to and moved on. Many of the campers seemed to be fishermen who left early to drive the 1/4 mile to the lake and returned in the evening. Campsites are in a loop, many are not too level but you make your best pick; easy entrance and movement. - RVFRab

Roads and sites are gravel but mostly level. Pull through sites face Eagle Lake. Boondocking sites available for $10 per night. Very friendly owner who occasionally hosts wiener roasts, pot lucks etc. Laundry facility and small rec. room open during business hours only. One of the best unknown gems in Eagle Lake and the cheapest! Monthly rate only $260 + electricity. A great place to stay for touring the Enchanted Circle and surrounding areas. - luv2cruise

Beautiful scenery every direction. Good spacing between sites. Nice picnic table shelter providing much needed shade as there are no trees. Water fill station provided. No electric or sewer. Lake looked nice for boating and fishing. Our cellphones had no service (cricket/att). Had to go to Angel Fire to get free wi-fi at visitor center (10 miles). - molytung

Very quiet campground, and all sites have a good view of lake or mountains. This is dry camping -- no hookups. However, water is available on site and a dump station ($15) is available at a nearby RV park.
Eagle Nest Lake is a clean lake that attracts mainly fishermen. However, the lake is very cold -- too cold for swimming or water skiing. - AspenTrailmama

This is a great boondocking state park. Good views of the lake and surrounding mountains. All sites have a covered table and fire pit. Generally always a breeze blowing. If this park had a rv dump station i would rate it a 10. - TEXASBOY

Our RV club enjoyed a 6 night rally here in June. Staff are all very friendly and accommodating. Sites are mostly level but are in some cases a bit more close than we prefer. Camp store is well equipped with necessities and gift items and campground has a weekly list of activities in which you can participate. There is an on-site chuckwagon serving breakfast and lunch items for sale. Bath and shower facilities are nice and well maintained. - G and G from ABQ

We got to Eagle Nest after dark on Dec 30. We were headed to Angel Fire but decided not to take a chance on the road since they had received snow that day. We called ahead and the owner was waiting out front in the frigid temps to help direct us into the park. He helped us get situated in our campsite. We went inside where we met his wife. It was like meeting old friends. They were so nice and just wanted to help. They invited us to the New Year's Eve potluck social the next night. They also told us they would have pastries and coffee at 9 the next morning there in the store/common area. We went for coffee and met another nice couple that were from west of Denver. Super nice folks also.
Bruce suggested a scenic drive for the day. We decided to stay here instead of going to the Angel Fire campground.
We attended the social on New Year's Eve and met some nice people from the town. By the time we left, we felt like we were leaving family. If you need anything, all you have to do is ask. They will do their best to help.
We definitely plan to go back to see our friends.

Basic park. Right on highway so easy on/off access. Hookups were convenient. Very few trees so good line of sight for roof mounted satellite dish. Site was fairly level. - Bob & Jo

Rate is based on a special weekly rate. Since staying here last summer, while the park was still under construction, most everything is now complete. The park is in a beautiful setting, with views of the valley and surrounding mountains. Most sites are well-positioned for morning sun and afternoon shade. Among the amenities are a putting green, dog runs, pickle ball courts, hot tub, a large clubhouse and nice office. Staff was extremely professional. Daily trash pickup was a nice bonus. Onsite activities were offered on some evenings, and guests have access to a variety of activities at Angel Fire Resort. WiFi, though better than last year, still suffers from time-to-time. However, management is proactively working on improving it and solicits feedback from guests. All in all, this was a great camping experience. - Phaeton40AH

We stayed here last year when they were still getting the landscaping done. It was great then, but this year it's absolutely beautiful! They still have a little more work to do to finish things up, but that wouldn't stop us from staying here again. The biggest addition for us this year is the new dog park. Lots of space for the pups and beautiful well maintained grass. Our only suggestion would be to add a couple of benches for the 'people' to sit. The clubhouse is finished now and is one of the nicest we've seen. We attended a cooking demonstration with one of the chefs from the resort and were very impressed. There are two pickle ball courts now along with horseshoe pits and a very nice putting green. There are two fire pits, one at the clubhouse and the other up near the bath house and hot tub. The bath house was kept clean and the laundry room was excellent too.
The only 'negative' we saw while here is the 'Executive' Section (sites 801-805) are not quite finished with landscaping. Those sites were quite muddy and had lots of weeds. Not worth the extra fee yet, but soon! We camped here in a 42' coach with tow vehicle. You might need to unhitch the tow (if you have a motorhome), to give you more maneuverability when you get to your site. The hookups are toward the back, so you'll want to park your towed at the front of your site. - Cairnsrock

Loved the setting. The landscape is gorgeous and all facilities were immaculate! Wifi needs some work it's sketchy. Great placement of all hookups!
The hot tub is DELIGHT - but it doesn't open until 10 am. Weekly rates are discounted which is nice.
The wine & cheese party on Thursday nights is great, but they ran out of wine twice and we couldn't bring our own :(
If there's an intention to limit the beverage servings it'd be nice to just get a ticket or two to limit the number of drinks per person, as it would set & satisfy the expectations.
Overall, we really LOVED our stay and will return again next year. - Liz Wilson

It's a pretty small park, owned by a nice couple. There are only two bathroom/shower combos, which are kept clean. It has a cabin attached to it. There is no club house or other amenities, but they do have Wifi. The sites are mostly back in, with some pull throughs without sewer. The couples we met there come for a few months or the summer. They have good 30amp and 50amp service; good water quality. Pets are welcome although there is no dog park. Like I said, it's a very small park.
There was vacant land all around the park and behind the storage facility there was a dirt road going up into the hills where I was able to let the dogs loose. There are a ton of prairie dogs all over and they loved to chase them. The sites were fairly close together but level with a little grassy area and behind the sites a common ground with picnic tables where the guests met to talk. - Kerch Family

WiFi never worked and shower is coin operated which is very inconvenient. 1 toilet, 1 shower for men in entire campground. No fires allowed. Nice enough people but I paid $40 to camp for amenities which were not satisfactory. - adamant

Nice owners. This park is for sale due to ill health. Small park. Poor WiFi. Low water pressure. Gravel roads and sites somewhat level. We stayed here a week and paid $236.50 with escapees discount. - milodog

The setting is wonderful and the camp hosts are first rate. The rest is disappointing. The entry is rough. The wifi is inconvenient at best. The restrooms/showers are cramped and dated. Apparently the owners/hosts cannot receive email for the park. Overall this park is in serious decline. Major maintenance is wanting. If you are self contained OK, the utilities are good. It is convenient to Taos and the area. One big plus is you are not packed in, without shade, like other parks in the area. There is some noise from Hwy 64 and more from the road on the west side of the park (in the day). - gumper

We saw this RV park on our way to Angel Fire, NM. This is a very quaint park with gorgeous views. We enjoyed bird watching & seeing the elk graze in the pasture next to the park. Wonderful friendly camp hosts. We had a very peaceful and relaxing time. Wi-Fi worked great. Great place to stay. We were only able to camp here one night but we will most definitely return. - Happy RVers with 4 legged kids

Don't go by the website. And good luck making reservations. Called the park 7 times, left 2 messages, and sent an email: got no reply. Park is very old and very rundown. Needs a LOT of care. Benches as well as fire rings were pretty much unusable. Sites not level. Sites were so close together we could not put out our awning without hitting the trailer slide out next to us. Power was pretty weak; breaker kept tripping even though we were not close to 30 amp. Water is good, and good pressure. No cell phone, Wi-Fi was very iffy. Air card did not work either. Setting was pretty and it could be a nice park, with a LOT of work. Even though it says big rig friendly, I would not agree. We will not stay here again. - Native Texan
