We chose a back-in site in the back of the park. It had lots of space, a tree for much needed shade, and picnic table. It was good to be able to walk our dogs out the back gate through the fairgrounds and stables. The park is a bit south of town so everything is a short drive. It was very quiet, beautiful views, and dog friendly. The staff was very nice and helpful with local recommendations. WiFi was acceptable most of the time. Price reflects Escapees discount on the daily rate (pennies cheaper than the weekly rate).
Long pull-through sites although built into the mountain were level. It was pretty tight navigating and tackling the hills. We managed with our 35' fifth wheel. We stayed for two nights. It was quiet except for the trains (no horns though). There is a short trail from the park with great views to walk the dogs. No wifi. Staff was friendly and eager to offer suggestions on what the area had to offer.
My biggest problem with this park is the size of the spots. Between the location, price and other parks being full, we forced our 35' fifth wheel into one of their regular pull-through sites. We had a tree on the driver's sided that limited our flexibility within the spot. Our passenger slideout was over our spot's boundary. If we wanted to sit outside, we would have to put our chairs out front or back; no room out the front door. After a couple of days the RV beside us moved and we we had room to breathe. There were plenty of open spots so all of us bohemians could spill over. There is no WiFi and you can not send packages here. There is a train that makes about 3 trips during the night, and it blows its horn the whole time! Bring ear plugs. There are so many positives though. There is great walking trails out back of the fairgrounds along ponds and the river; you can walk for miles. There is a farmer's market on Saturdays. The events at the fairgrounds brings lots of horses around on the weekends. Animal Care Services is down the road and I loved to see all the volunteers walk dogs all day. I was also able to get my dogs and cat vaccinated at their wellness clinic by just walking over with no appointment needed. There was no dog poop or litter relative to any other place we've stayed! Lots of goose poop at the ponds though. Since no sewer and we were staying for 2 weeks, I showered in their facilities. They were spotless, hot water, and good pressure. I was sad to go back to showering in my RV. They had recycling and composting!
Rate reflects weekly rate. Staff: friendly. Neighbors: friendly and, oh, my some were even long time residences. Yes, the sites are close together, but I've been at worse; we had a concrete pad with a picnic table on it which I consider quite roomy. It is on a hill and a bit tight to get into spots, but we managed with our 35' fifth wheel. Laundry facilities were clean. Location is great; not far to get to Estes Park/Rocky Mountain NP. Devil's Backbone a very short drive (1.3 miles) with great hiking and biking. Even Loveland downtown is not that far away. WiFi was relatively good.
We stayed for two weeks; the rate indicated includes tax at the weekly rate. Workers were very friendly and helpful. We got a few packages delivered while there, and they called to let us know when each one came in and offered to even deliver them to us. They provided suggestions for anything and everything to do in the area. The wi-fi worked great. We are a dog family; there is a small back yard to walk them and to access the bike path. Note: to get to the bike path, you have to traverse the arroyo (sp? dry river bed) by either going down and scrambling up the rock wall or by walking to the right to the next major road that has a bridge over the arroyo. Downtown is about 4 miles to the left, but I also suggest going to the right for a nice walk/bike ride/run. There is a playground and HUGE dog park not too far when you go to the right on the path. For as cool as the dog park was to discover, it is covered in burrs. Los Suenos is convenient to downtown by car too. The spaces were a bit close, but while we were there there was lots of open spaces to spread people out. The laundry is in both the men's and women's bath/shower rooms. So if I started a load then I had to finish it. There was a sign stating that if you started both washers then there would be a flood, so I opted to do one at a time. The restroom was clean enough, I wouldn't say spotless. I did encounter once where there was no TP in the stall and another when there were no paper towels. We didn't try the pool, but it looked inviting when temps got into the 80s.
We stayed here to be close to Taos with maybe having the option to soak and do some fancy dining. We got our 35' fifth wheel in spot #11, not that much room to spare though. Most sites were very small, some had shrubs to separate sites, but some didn't. They have a list of sites and what will fit in them; check that out if you have a big rig and make a reservation in advance. There are porta johns in the RV lot; I did not use. I did use the rest rooms in the lobby once or twice though...I am pretty sure they were much nicer! You need a code to open a gate to get to the RV parking which seemed unnecessary; we are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. However outside the gate (twds the spa) is the lot for employees and for locals who hike the trails. Lots of great hiking right from the park. Upon checking in, I was disappointed to have to ask for a map of the grounds and a schedule for the yoga. Then had to go back the next morning to get a map of the hiking trails. I can't say that the map and trail markings were accurate, but we didn't get lost either. As far as I know, there was no map of the rv spots; we found ours all by ourselves. We ended up not taking advantage of their spa or yoga etc We did partake in the wine bar; prices were reasonable considering the location and atmosphere. The service was great. Other dining locations are a short walk to the main road: pizza, taos trail inn steakhouse, cafes. You have to go to the lobby or to the wine bar to use wi-fi. I felt a bit out of place sitting in a spa atmosphere doing my 'business' on my laptop.
We picked this park due to its location close to town and the mountains. The neighborhood isn't the best; we knew that going in, but were disappointed when the manager suggested that we not walk our dogs in the neighborhood. He reassured us that the park was safe with one entrance/exit that is monitored. As a prior military guy who lives on site with his wife and family, I believed him. We felt very safe, and after investigating moving, we decided that the dogs could sacrifice their usual long morning walks since this place was so convenient and the price was reasonable. The manager was super nice. He asked us to call when we were close so that he could greet us and guide us right to our spot. He gave us recommendations for restaurants, laundry and sights based on our interest. He gave us a business card so that we could call him if we needed advice. The park was very quiet and other residents were friendly. We walked our dogs around the park in the mornings and several residents came out to say hi...to our dogs and one even gave them treats. Note: the address is Wyoming, but the entrance is on Zuni! There are no laundry, bathrooms or showers on site. I would recommend this place and if ever back in ABQ would stay here again.
Access right off the highway was convenient for getting in/out and for exploring the city; not good for walking dogs though. There is 17 acres in the back of the park that they encouraged us to walk our dogs,placed us right on the edge, and said that we could let them off leash if we wanted. Big sign out front says pool, but it was not open and didn't look like it had for a while or would be again anytime soon. Note, it is approaching 90 degrees in April in TX. Community building was showing signs of age, but was clean. It had laundry, TV, library, and bathroom/shower rooms (check the TP first though!). Management was nice; he even remembered what spot we were in every time we came in to extend our stay. We got stuck for 4 extra nights due to high winds which resulted in those 17 acres in back as the source of a dust storm. If you are there in the spring, you may want to stay in a spot between other RVs. We thought it so cool when we got there that we only had neighbors on one side, HA!
