Management is just super. Informative about what to see in Taos and nearby as well as the Golden Circle drive. The location is convenient and quiet. Sites are well spaced and drive thru. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Just ask for good places to eat and things to see.

This a nice park a couple miles North of Taos, West on Highway 64 towards the gorge bridge. All sites are pullthrus and they are 50' wide. So there is nice separation from your neighbor. There also is sage and other bushes between the sites that add to the feeling of privacy. Our site (#12) was perfectly level. And it looked like most of them were close to the same. There are no trees. But that allows you to have views of the mountain to the East and the gorgeous sunsets to the West. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to the parking lot on the West side of the gorge and take the trail South about a half mile to a bench with a great view of the gorge and the bridge.

Have the house salad (with the house dressing) at Taos Pizza Outback.

Breakfast at Michael's is our favorite.

Easy entrance off highway. Large, roomy spaces for big rigs. Sensational views. Hosts were helpful. Gravel spaces - could use a bit of weeding here and there but adds to the more rural setting. Utilities worked great. A few full timers, but no problems. Easy access to Taos from the north side. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For great Mexican food try Orlando's. About 2 miles. It opens for dinner at 5:00 - within 20 minutes there is an hour wait. Worth the visit.

575-751-0774. 24819 US Hwy 64 W, El Prado, NM 87529. Located on the same road and about 5 miles from the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and just a few miles north of downtown Taos. The park has 5 acres of open space and sits on the high-desert mesa at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Taos County. There isn't much shade (it is high desert after all) but the sites are long and wide and there is plenty of room between the gravel FHU (30 and 50 amp) pull through sites. Not all site are totally level but they are well kept. We have stayed here many times and have not had a bad site yet. The park has security gates, is pet friendly, big rig friendly, has a well-stocked convenience store, friendly hosts, a dump station, picnic tables at each site, a laundry, clean restrooms with showers, a neat group gathering area pavilion, tent sites with protected fences, and WiFi that actually WORKS! We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy entrance right off the highway. The sites were gravel and level and very well maintained. Nice wide pull-thrus, we saw several large rigs here. The bathrooms/showers were immaculate, and the park hosts were super friendly. Very small playground for the kids, but the hosts were quick to give our boys patches and stickers to keep them busy! The view of the mountains and sunsets was incredible. There was some minor highway noise but it didn't bother us. We would stay here again. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We chose this park because of the other reviews here as well as several other RV review sites. Our experience at Monte Bello RV Park was more than wonderful. The park owners are what all RV park owners should strive for. Friendly, accommodating, helpful, honest, and will go the extra mile to ensure your stay is enjoyable. It is very clear they love what they do and they love the town they live in. Very big-rig friendly. The sites are level and gravel as well as wide and long for slideouts and tow-behind vehicles. Water is good; we also used a 50 amp site. Turning around is also easy. This park is outside of the hustle-and-bustle of Taos, but within a 5-10 minute drive. The park does reside in the high-desert, so campers should be prepared for that. What does that mean? No high overhanging trees that will block satellite dishes, smaller bushes about waist-high, extremely dark skies and it can get quite breezy during the afternoon hours. The park is VERY clean, including the office, storefront, showers, little library area. Scenery is awesome. Would we stay here again? Absolutely, without hesitation! We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

Remembering you are in the desert mountain climate, this is a lovely site. Sites are very generous in size, gravel, fairly level and have an unobstructed view of the mountains (we were there when the aspens were turning and the mountains were capped with snow and lower turning shades of gold and red with the evergreens mixed in for extra color). The park staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The park is quiet and most were waiting for first good snowfall to start skiing. Close to town (2 miles) yet far enough away to be away from the crowds. Close to the gorge bridge. I would highly recommend this part. Price reflects discount AND hefty New Mexico state tax (they have to pay hotel tax even though they don't change sheets or offer room service - go figure!) We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a small park located conveniently East of Taos off of highway. Our pull through site was level and easy to access. At this time of year water had to be disconnected in the evening to prevent freezing of hose and facility hook up. Verizon service was excellent and DirecTV easy to access. There is a large covered common area with a barbecue and picnic tables as well as picnic tables at each site. The area is high desert so landscaping is desert foliage and cactus. There is no fenced dog area but there is a well maintained dirt trail which made an excellent one mile walk for the dog. There is a nice store and staff was very helpful with suggestions for touring the area. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a well maintained campground in a high desert setting, owners were very friendly and helpful at check in. Roads and pads are hard packed gravel which helps to minimize the dust. We had a spacious pull through and big rig access was good. Very quiet with plenty of space for our towed, and wonderful views of the mountains, if you are in a motor home choose a site that is facing north to get this view. The bathrooms and laundry although small were spotless. There was a security gate 24/7 which was very reassuring. Very pet friendly with a lovely trail to walk your pet. WiFi and cell were good. Only 6 miles into Taos, which has great restaurants, plenty of sightseeing and Walmart's. We would stay here again.  We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

The owners and camp host could not have been more gracious and friendly. We loved this park! Short distance to town but super convenient. Quiet, safe, and very easy in and out. Most clean restroom and laundry we have experienced. If you keep yours squeaky clean, facilities will remind you of home. We will definitely stay here again!

A real nice and clean RV park. All sites and road are dirt/gravel. Super clean restrooms and shower. Dog park and law enforcement firing range across the street got annoying. Park no longer offers a discount and charge electricity for weekly. Note that price reflects a weekly rate plus electricity. That would be $1000 a month! We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Not sure what other reviewers use as a gauge to give to give this park a 9 or 10. It is a dirt and gravel parking lot. When the wind blows (and it blows here a lot), the dust blows also. The wireless Internet works, but it is only 1.5 Mbps, so it is fairly slow. The park is listed as offering 15% off for Escapees, but the park no longer honors this. The owner is helpful, as others have said, but $30 for an elec/water site in a dirt/gravel parking lot does not warrant anything higher than a 7. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very basic campground. No amenities but reasonably priced. Sites were roomy enough. Level parking with good hook ups. Call ahead as this is a small campground and it was full each night that we were there. Central to a lot of interesting sights. See the pueblo when you visit. We will revisit this campground.

No discounts offered. Small RV park close to Taos and Rio Grande Gorge. Water and electric worked fine. Good Verizon cell and MiFi coverage. Pleasant 1-mile hiking trail within the RV park. Nice enough park for a short stay. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.
