Good check in open area that allows for unhooking. Spacious site but very sloped and base of little rock, mostly clay/dirt. Difficult to level motor home and we settle for sloped living.Trash containers are not emptied on a daily basis.Rain comes and out site is very muddy and the large muddy potholes in the road are a mess. Breaking camp is not pleasant when there is mud everywhere.When departing the muddy potholes make a mess of our coach. Without the rain and on a level site it would have been a pleasant stay.
Motor home - two adults - four night stay.
I agree with a previous review that you feel like you are in an industrial area. Native vegetation is over grown and unsightly to me. Mixture of sites. We got the last one for the day which we appreciate however the trees were so overgrown we had a hard time getting all our slides out. The awning was not an option. Because of this we decided to only stay in Taos one night. P.S. This side of town is not impressive. Unfortunately not many options for RV'ers
Kind of an industrial area, but still has beautiful mtn. views. Facilities were adequate, we did not use restrooms or showers. Fine location for seeing Taos. Also there is a very good restaurant right down the road on the corner within a short walk.
Five stars for friendly check in but it just went downhill from there. We were parked by an apparent resident that had a pretty shoddy looking trailer. The sites were small and bare bones with no trees or attempt at desert landscaping. The baths seemed clean but it was scary trying to find your way to the restrooms in the pitch black Taos nights. Just seemed kind of sad and worn. We will not stay here again.
An excellent and clean campground only a few mIles from downtown Taos. TV reception is by over-the-air unless you have satellite. We didn’t have TV for our 3-night stay which we really didn't miss; we were able to find a good radio station. I made an error with our online reservation, but the office was able to accommodate us in a different site. Recommend you make your reservation by telephone to avoid the mistake I made. The checkin was easy and friendly with recommendations on where to eat. We would stay here again!
Stayed 3 nites here. The park has very little shade in some sites but the staff is nice. Restrooms and showers are clean and useful. Not too far from the artsy fartsy stuff, but if you're here in the summer, get going early because during the day, the traffic is as bad as any big city and parking is not to be found. Back to the park, would I recommend it---yes, would I stay here again---yes.
We chose Taos Valley RV Park because we were interested in visiting Taos, not expecting to spend much time in the park. Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful; also, you can stop by for fresh brewed coffee in the morning. The grounds are neatly kept and pretty quiet. The restroom/shower facility was clean. Our site was gravel and fairly level, but very narrow, so if we wanted to sit outside, we'd need to use their picnic table (a table and grill are provided at each site). Other sites (full hookups) have cement pads and perhaps a bit more space. This is a park within a high-desert town, so no lush trees or shade. There is a little trail through sage brush that is nice for walking your dog; even has baggies and a trashcan for your convenience. This is a fine park for a home-base while you visit Taos and the surrounding areas -- it is not a destination park.
