7 Parks near Eagle Nest, New Mexico

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

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

Boondocking State Park camping, central water faucet, no dump, pit toilets. Our 36' and toad fit well, several sites to choose from. About 1/2 First Come/Served; 1/2 Reserved sites. We arrived on a Thursday and had our choice of several with lake front views. Easy entrance, easy parking. Lots of fishermen but the day-use area is well removed from the campground. High winds most afternoons and brief thunderstorms so be careful out on the lake. Short hiking trail. Daytime watch the prairie dogs play, some birding, elk come down to the pastures on the South end of the lake every evening (requires scope or good binoculars). Quiet, nice. - RVFRab

This is a nice campground with 19 sites with a mixture of pull-outs and back-ins. The road and sites were on packed gravel. There are no utilities but water was available. There were 2 vault toilets. Almost all of the sites have a view of the lake and were long and spacious. Each site had a picnic table and shelter on a concrete pad with a fire ring. Since we stayed at this park off season it was very quiet and peaceful. Verizon cell phone was on extended network and worked most of the time. Verizon air card work pretty well. Your registration sticker that you put on your vehicle will allow you to visit Cimarron Canyon State Park free of charge (normally $5 per day). Be aware that there are few signs directing you to Eagle Nest Lake Park. Turn left at B11B road (coming from Eagle Nest). You will see a sign for Angel Nest Retreat RV Park. The state park is at the end of this dirt road. We would come back again if we were in the area. - adsaxs

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

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

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

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
