We try to stay here every year as we travel from our son's house in Santa Fe to Colorado or points west. This is a very nice park, kept very clean, with drop dead views. It is on a small Mesa so can be quite windy. We were there three nights this year and we could only sit outside in early morning due to the wind. But it is springtime...and the wind blows in much of the Southwest all spring! I highly recommend the park. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had a very bad experience at Monte Bello. This park is pretty basic and we were prepared for that from the previous reviews. It is located on top of a mesa with no trees, no shade, lots of dust and VERY windy. Most afternoons our RV was rocking back and forth like being on a boat. There is also road noise as it is located right next to a highway with lots of truck traffic.

The sites are close and have no privacy. Unfortunately for us, the on-site host did nothing about the site occupant next to us who got up at 6:00AM and decided to do repair work on his truck engine along with lots of slamming doors, revving engines, driving in and out to test his repair work, etc.

This noise and repair job continued for over 3 hours. When we complained to the on-site host, whose site is situated directly behind the offending repairman, he was rude asked why we didn't complain to him at 6:00AM and used language that is not fit to print. Needless to say, we will not be returning here - ever. The positives are the clean restrooms and laundry. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is a few miles north of Taos in an arid area. It does get windy there. Our site was not quite long enough to accommodate motorhome and toad, but there was plenty of room beside the motorhome. Water, sewer, and electric worked well. AT&T cell coverage is good. Wifi on our site was marginal, fast when it would connect. I suspect it is better on other sites; the campground antennas are pretty low. The whole campground is very well kept. Our dogs thought the walking trail was great. This is a great base from which to explore the area. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

We liked Orlando's restaurant (Los Colores) and Jethro's BBQ trailer. The drive up the canyon to Taos Ski Valley is a must-see.

We have been full-time RVers for over 3 years and have never come across park owners that were more friendly, helpful, and hard-working than this couple. The park is small and basic in a great location near Taos, but out on the high desert mesa with 360 degree views of the mountains all around. One huge private bathroom / shower for the women and one of the same for the men....always sparkling clean. Excellent wifi. Big piece of land adjacent to the park with walking trails - great place to take your dog. Another plus is that it's just a mile from the Taos Mesa Brewery, which has great food and beer plus activities and/or music every night. Rate is monthly plus metered electric (we used a lot of electric as it was winter). We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

So many things to see and do around Taos - historic sites, museums, restaurants, galleries and shops, and live music....not to mention all the outdoor activities and scenic drives. Plus, the Taos aquatic center is a fantastic facility for a town this size.

We stayed the first time at this lovely park in October on our way to Texas. Just a few days ago we swung back through after traveling through Colorado. This park is so conveniently located and is one of the cleanest there is. Parking spots are pristine, and well taken care of. Booking is personable and easy. It's perfectly situated in the middle of a 360 degree view of the mountains. There's plenty to do nearby.

I have just one minor comment. The fact that there is only one washing machine is a nuisance but it would not keep me from staying there again. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is SO much to do nearby. Endless possibilities. Taos center, museums, Arroyo Secco, Taos Ski Valley, the Rio Grande bridge and more!

There are maps and information at the front desk and the owners are warm and helpful.

Just don't plan on doing loads of laundry. There's only one machine. Not a big deal! I highly recommend this park.

Good sized sites. Utilities worked although the water pressure was low. Wifi worked well. Verizon signal strong. Easy in/out with no problem with our 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a nice clean little park with great sunsets and easy access to town. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park. The sites are level & adequately spaced. The hook ups are well placed. There is no cable but there is WiFi that worked well. There isn't very much grass & the skunk weed that grows wild is very pungent. It is a small park. They do have a security gate. The park is conveniently located to the town. The staff is very friendly & the owner, Concha, lets you know the layout of Taos & points of interest & restaurants. She also helped us with the different routes we could take to Sante Fe. We would stay here again. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

A relatively nice desert campground with great views. Far enough out of town to be mostly quiet with some highway noise. Single lane gravel access roads leading to mostly level gravel sites. Nicely spaced sites with picnic table and desert vegetation. Power ok although we did have one dropout on leg 2 (under 104v) over the course of a week. No A/C loading so no feel for how that would affect the power. Water psi low at 40, sewer ok, but not a threaded connection. Wifi was reasonable for a campground with occasional periods of sluggish bandwidth and frequent disconnects. Verizon access was pretty much of a joke (extended service 3g with 3 bars and very slow). We tried it once when the campground wifi was sluggish and it made the campground seem fast by comparison. No problem with satellite access. Recycle aluminum cans only. Electric is metered on weekly rates - we paid $20 for the week (but no heavy electric usage). We will stay here again. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

Not big rig friendly, sites are too narrow with overgrown bushes that hinder slides and getting around RV. We were here two years ago and it looks as if nothing has been touched since then. Good wifi and friendly front desk person. Definitely will not return! We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
